But of course: CNN entertainment “reporter” duped by Palin bikini photoshop
HotAir.com ^

Posted on 09/08/2008 9:43:20 AM PDT by Def Conservative

We’ve now reached the point where gossip sites are forced to debunk rumors being circulated uncritically by the mainstream media.

Keep updating, Charlie. No rest for the weary.

KURTZ: But if it’s a “Lifetime Movie of the Week,” Lola, then it seems to me that it’s a very mixed picture from the point of view of a ticket that is trying to get, you know, John McCain and Sarah Palin elected president and vice president of the United States. In other words, it’s great to be a celebrity, and she’ll get a book deal out of it and maybe her own television show, but does it undercut the effort to paint her as a serious, reform-minded governor?

[Lola] OGUNNAIKE: And that’s what she is going to have to guard against. I mean, McCain has been really good about painting Obama as this lightweight, using the word “celebrity” as a pejorative. They don’t want to have a boomerang effect. They don’t want that to come back on Sarah Palin, and people say, yes, she looks good in a bikini clutching an AK-47, but is she equipped to run the country?

:::::::::::
The radical left, ashamed? No morals, no ethics, no honesty...no shame. It is how they live, and why they want to destroy any system that measures human performance and accountability....like CHRISTIANITY....

“Kurtz, who still thinks Andrew Sullivan’s ‘right-leaning,’”

He WAS, at least when I read him back around 9/11. Since then, the gay marriage issue broke his brain.

Oh, give them a break. They are too busy trying to fact check the rumor that the Palin’s have some overdue Library books.

Yeah, remember it was CNN who sent a reporter to Alaska to investigate the baby story first put forth by Daily Kos.

They are not dumb, although simple arithmetic would have explained the baby was not Bristol's.

No no! Never let it be said that CNN ever let facts get in the way of a good smear.

Also shows how braindead they are to guns. A BB gun is not an AK-47.

Why a semiauto with accessories is an “Assualt weapon” and they conjure up visions of it blasting full auto through concrete walls and bullet proof jackets.

I guess any rifle she holds will be called an AK-47 from here on out. Looks like a Remington to me.

This reminds me of when a journalist reported new currency in Iraq would feature President Bush's face. This was not long after the invasion of Baghdad, and the new currency pic was featured in the story.

Here's a link to a copy of the original graphic:

Iraqi Currency

The currency graphic was originally created by a Freeper named "Registered." Registered once frequented this site, and gave us some very funny pictures over the years. Is there anyone out there who can remember who the journalist was?

Evidently the term Palin Bikini Shots was so popular on google that Glenn Beck took advantage of it.

They said this morning that they had massive hits on their website, you can check out http://www.glennbeck.com and click on Palin Bikini photos...but don’t be afraid of the warning, go ahead and click through...very clever of Beck, as usual.

CNN has some woman reporter up there to “survey the scene” and she keeps saying that “...even though Sarah Palin has an 82% approval in Alaska, there are still women who disapprove”...she just can’t ever find one to put on camera. It’s getting hilarious.

If the modern day press did their job and just REPORTED the news instead of trying to make the news and trying to promote liberal candidate and policy then maybe half the papers in America would not be failing and closing up. But rally no loss as far as I am concerned....

What do you bet they are already on the case looking for a regristration on an AK-47 belonging to either Sarah or Todd Palin. When they can’t find a regristration it will turn up on Dkos that she has an illegal gun and they will be demanding to see the regristration.

I like the way he answered his question.

“So I say again, why is MSNBC bearing the brunt of conservative animosity? Is it just a sort of lifetime achievement award for newly demoted demagogue Edward R. Olbermann?”

Upon further inspection, that appears to be a Crosman 760. Hardly an AK-47.

Did it occur to anyone that she would be insulted to be photographed that way? I don’t mean in a bikini, I mean with an AK? What would a reindeer hunter do with a puny little bullet like that? Follow blood trails a long way?

Different tools for different jobs. I doubt she has any particular animosity towards AK’s...but they are pretty crummy big game rifles.

It wasn't Sarah Palin and the gun was a Crosman pellet gun. I used to own one just like it.

It was both. A Crosman 760 air gun fires both .177 pellets and BBs. I had hours of fun with mine as a kid.
