Following links on the page, you can also see the selective editing done of the Palin interview meant to smear hear.
We should refuse all ENEMEDIA interrogations until the illuminati puppet Obomber goes on Fox.
Do you need anything, Mr. Senator. Would you like a pillow?

The MSM is so biased and so slanted to the left, it’s not even funny. They were interviewed Obama, assuming he would win and then they tried to trash Palin when they interviewed her.
I can’t wait to see their straight, gloomy and tear-streamed faces when McCain & Palin win the election!
ABDNC shows their hatred towards a Republican.

Our media is essentially a domestic enemy to the freedom loving people of the United States.
Charles Gibson, Chris Matthews, Katie Couric and the rest of that sorry lot are the agents that Stalin could only dream about.
Each passing day of the media's venomous hatred for Governor Palin and other Americans makes Obama's LOSS that much more justifiable.
“Will you debate McCain at a Town Hall”?
I’d love to see his answer to that. Let me guess, he said “any place, any time” or something to that effect.
The list of questions is a great eye opener.
“Arent you conceited to be seeking this high level job?”
The medidiots have completely propagandized the “news” to a level not seen since the USSR.
Who gets their news solely from them anyway?
I've carved my own niche making a humble but decent living as a specialized kind of writer of articles for public consumption. I write the articles by doing one thing: asking questions. I learned a long time ago as a news feature writer that only stupid, lazy, and/or amateurish reporters ask:
1. Questions that can be answered either "yes" or "no."
2. "How do you feel" or "How does it make you feel" questions.
3. Questions to which anyone with brains already knows the answer. "How do you feel" questions fall into this category about 90 percent of the time.
All of the above are the products of LAZY interviewers. It takes a lot of time and effort to phrase smart, revealing questions in ways that they cannot be answered "yes" or "no," but instead require the subject to elaborate and explain. As for "How do you feel" questions -- they are beyond lazy. They are inane, juvenile, and insulting to both audiences and subject.
Reckon he’s after Larry Kings’ job?
Charlie can act like he thinks Sarah isnt qualified all he wants by trying to act all intimidating during the interview and hostile and throw really hardball questions all he wants. But when he asks such soft-ball questions to Obama, we know who he REALLY thinks is unqualified. Clearly, Charlie is afraid to ask Obama the questions he knows he should ask Obama, because Obama couldnt handle the questions at all and that would expose Obama for the fraud that he is. Sarah handled the interview very well, it was an extremely hostile, combative style of questioning. I was shocked and she did very well, it was clear she knew what she was up against. Sarah is very qualified.
Heres a truly egregious thought: Given the psychotic bile even the respectable left is currently disgorging, how soon will it be until the assassination porn the left threw at W comes falling down on Sarah? The novels, moviesand worsebeing planned now? I really fear for her safety. And lets not forget, Oswald was a flaming leftist commie!
Ah! I see it now -— Obama got the “affirmative action” treatment from ABC. And Palin didn’t because even though she was born a woman she is still a Republican, which, to liberals, femi-nazis, media-types, is just as bad as being a man. Thus Palin got the tough questions and now American voters respect her even more, while Obama got the easy “affirmative action” questions and American voters respect him even less. Thanks ABC, thanks Charlie!

Wait till the VP debates....it will be the biggest opportunity yet for the media to torpedo Palin. Yes, they will try, they don’t care if America gets upsets and writes emails. They will support their candidate.
May want to think twice about that one.
If you ever want to hear a professional interview by a fairly well-known individual, listen to Hugh Hewitt interview someone.
I did. I even used my real name and title.
I listened to Hugh regularly for more than five years, even when I had to make excuses for him (such as defending the very stupid appointment of Erwin Chemerinsky as Dean of UCI's new law school). But the Primaries were the last straw. Hugh completely revealed himself as a pointy-headed intellectual lawyer Country Club Republican. I lost the bulk of my respect for him as an eloquent spokesman for, and defender of, small government conservative principle, when he dove so completely in the tank for Nanny Government Republican Mitt Romney, despite Romney's obvious and documented Liberal mentality. Now I listen to Larry Elder and am more enlightened and validated for it.
It was always a fine line between Larry Elder (same time slot, different station) and Hugh, anyway, and in that regard, Larry is like Rush: one of the only talk show hosts with whom I haven't become disillusioned after many years of listening. Larry, like Rush, is genuinely a small-government conservative who actually grasps the principles. Larry's father, from how Larry relates info about him, sounds like an American hero of the first order.
But you're right -- Hugh is hands-down one of the finest interviewers out there. Thanks for the reminder -- when Larry Elder is preempted for baseball (790 KABC, same time slot as Hugh in the LA market), I'll tune in to Hugh or, better yet, visit Hugh's website for transcripts of his interviews so I can continue to learn from Hugh.
Well, I don’t buy any of that stuff but Target I get my meds there and AT&T is my internet and I ain’t changing lol
but I have sent out a sample of the Palin edit hatchet-job to my email list (such as it is) so hopefully that gets enough attention that at least some people realize what’s going on.
I wish Fox would do a story on the ABC edit business.
Thanks for the head's up!
Actually Larry Elder is not a conservative. He is a libertarian in his political philosophy, who became a Republican only within the last couple years. I also very much enjoy listening to him.
Did it about 25 minutes ago...
That is a bad thing because it is only ONE of the denominators, albeit a very emotional one that appeals hugely to self-gratification, as opposed to hands-off free market moral conservatism, which requires the setting-aside of emotions and temptation to "protect" people from themselves. Big government advocacy and conservatism are oil and water; many a big government "conservative" latches on to the Republican party wearing a conservative patch, but in essence failing to embrace the foundation of conservatism. I think we should all beware of this.
For example, so we get a whole bunch of women switching parties from Dem to Republican because they love (as do I) Sarah Palin -- yet they bring with them a still-confirmed belief that government has a right to interfere in everything from parental consent to "equal pay" laws on business and commerce. What they seek and like in Palin, they do not understand is the product of an independent, personal-responsiblity, mind-your-own-business, small government freedom conservative who would say NO to most of their crap.
Sadly, so many hold that the sole common denominator of "conservative" is to be pro-life and anti-abortion; that's all it takes to be "conservative" .....
I'd amend that to a couple of required denominators -- pro-life, anti-abortion, and hawkish pro-offense in war. As long as a Republican holds those views, he's "conservative." Yet how can he be conservative if he doesn't get that the right views on both issues are derived from belief in personal responsibility and freedom? Big government allows and tempts people to behave immorally; small government (and the resulting free enterprise) rewards people for behaving morally.
I think Rush and -- Libertarian or not -- Larry are conservatives who get that.
Thanks for the ping. Here is what I wrote to ABC:
“The interview I saw last night with Governor Palin was very slanted. I can’t believe Mr. Gibson acted like a member of the Gestapo while interviewing Governor Palin. It was truly shocking to see. I never thought I would see the day when a supposedly unbiased reporter could do such a hostile and combative interview. One of Obama’s campaign workers could have given a more fair interview. I witnessed Charles trying to deliberately intimidate Governor Palin. It was disgusting.”
