Palin Hairdresser: NYT Was Lying About "Hair Thinning" Claim

By Tim Lindell

Chalk this up as Stupid Palin Meme of the Week:

In a July 12th hit piece published on the front page of the New York Times, reporters Jim Rutenberg and Serge Kovaleski (assisted by Kim Severson and William Yardley in Alaska) made the following claim:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Friends worried that she appeared anxious and underweight. Her hair had thinned to the point where she needed emergency help from her hairdresser and close friend, Jessica Steele.

“Honestly, I think all of it just broke her heart,” Ms. Steele said in an interview at her beauty parlor in Wasilla, the Beehive.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This tidbit was seized upon and has bounced through the Internet and blogosphere -- a Google search for "Palin hair thinned" now returns nearly 400,000 hits. Lefties such as Eleanor Clift seized on it as some kind of meme that Palin can't handle stress.

Vanity as in: this is pretty picky by the MSM and bloggers to be reporting this (eyes rolling). Now the hairdresser is pissed...seems the NYT put words in her mouth (so what else is new).

Does the hair dresser have any recourse?....

Beautician should contact NYT, write an editorial, demand a retraction. She should at least insist they correct their mistake on the page number that coincide with the article....front page for front page etc.

All I gotta say is it's a good thing she's into fitness and jogging, because they do a LOT for relieving stress in certain types of folks. I remember early the morning after the second Dubya election, I went to the pool to swim laps as usual. Only one other swimmer was there, just thrashing out laps. To my surprise, I saw it was one of the "regulars" who usually didn't show up until a little after me. We chatted for a bit ... turned out he'd been in the pool since about 4 a.m. (two hours!) because he couldn't handle the suspense of the election returns! Of course, he was a conservative.

I know by 18-plus years of experience that maintaining a routine of regular heart-thumping lapswim workouts makes a tremendous difference in how I handle stress. It calms the mind and puts things into perspective.

When the Libs reach and talk about hair, you know they are running out of bashing material.

It ranks with L Ron Paul saying Palin is a Country Club Republican.
Yeah, waiders and hip boots, trainers and jogging shorts,

Also GOP lady, you need to take a look at the site conservatives4palin.com. It’s a good resource.

While some people on the blogosphere were grumbling and crying “woe is me”, some sites were doing the dirty work exposing the lies of the MSM, exposing the backstabbing shallowness of the Romney faction, exposing the ones waging the bogus ethics complaints and PROMOTING SARAH....not to metion hawking/promoting her pac and defense funds!!!!!

Conservative4forplin is on the forfront of this battle.

Jim Rutenberg and Serge F. Kovaleski go deep on the run-up to her (Sarah Palin) decision to quit

Kovaleski, who majored in philosophy at William & Mary, began his career in journalism at the Miami News in the mid-1980s, after spending some time after College studying and traveling in Europe.

"The moderator was Kim Severson, a staff writer for the Dining section of The New York Times.

I am 99 percent confident she was chosen because she is an out lesbian, but I knew she was going to be an excellent fans’ representative when she began the talk by asking “What the hell?!” in response to the ending of the sixth season."

Oct 29, 2006 ... “Suburban mom” leads in Alaska governor race. By William Yardley

******

There is an amazing letter circulating in the blogosphere that appears to be written by Anne Kilkenny of Wasilla, Alaska, probably William Yardley’s “Ann” Kilkenny, “a Democrat who said she attended every City Council meeting in Ms. Palin’s first year in office [as mayor]. . . .” and who is frequently quoted by the Frontiersman and Anchorage Daily News.

ANCHORAGE— A stay-at-home mom from Wasilla whose email information about Alaska’s governor took on an Internet life of its own during last year’s presidential campaign has won a “Special Recognition” award from the Alaska Press Club.

It is remarkable how the world has changed.

I have no idea whether or not "Tweetie" is Sarah Palin's hairdresser, but I know that the New York Times will spin and lie in order to advance its liberal agenda, and IMO the average Twitter poster is straightforward and honest. So we have reached the point where a pseudonymous Twitter poster is actually more credible to me than the New York Times.

No wonder Walter Cronkite died.

If the Times claims she said something embarrassing about her client, when she in fact did not, this is probably ACTIONABLE. Steele is, after all, a professional and this makes Steele and her business look very bad.

Lawyers out there? Doesn't Steele have a cause of action?

It’s official, when they send reporters to Alaska to dig dirt and they don’t find dirt they make it up........ trouble is they barked up the wrong hairdresser — which all of us could have told them since we’ve seen this lady interviewed and she thinks too highly of Sarah to dish on her to the Times or anyone else.

Because it's an outright lie spread around the country by the MSM to hurt Sarah Palin even further and needs to be exposed.

No surprise that the NYT used its front-page, above-the-fold column to propagandize against Sarah.

However — playing devil’s advocate for a moment — could the NYT not respond by saying “Well, but Ms. Steele did say that ‘I think it broke her heart’ and friends did say Sarah ‘appeared anxious and underweight.’”?

Did Sarah’s friends say these things or not? I have no doubt the NYT either lied outright or took statements out of context; but Sarah knows what game is being played, so she needs to alert her friends (just as she has alerted her family) about making statements of any sort to the mainstream media.
