From News Anchor To Vice-Presidential Candidate (MSNBC Barf Alert) Saturday, August 30, 2008 1:38:39 PM MSNBC Staff
Interesting that MSNBC chooses to release this now. I think the idea is for people to watch this and ask themselves "this woman is fit to be one heartbeat away from the Presidency?" But, of course, that was then (1988). And who wouldn't look like an amateur when delivering the news at the young age of 24? BTW, there is no place which says this archival footage is from 1988 but the reason I know it's from early 1988 is because she's talking about NCAA basketball and Gregg Jefferies, whose first year in the majors wasn't until the Summer of...

The McCain campaign issued the following statement: "The authors quote four scholars attacking Gov. Palin's fitness for the office of vice president. Among them, David Kennedy is a maxed-out Obama donor, Joel Goldstein is also an Obama donor, and Doris Kearns Goodwin has donated exclusively to Democrats this cycle. Finally, Matthew Dallek is a former speech writer for Dick Gephardt. This is not a story about scholars questioning Gov. Palin's credentials so much as partisan Democrats who would find a reason to disqualify or discount any nominee put forward by Sen. McCain."

There is something curious about the release of traffic and court records about Sarah and Todd Palin over the last 48 hours. Who released this information over the Labor Day weekend, when all government offices were closed? Why did McCain/RNC send a team of lawyers to Alaska to "investigate" the release of information? Why did Sarah Palin suddenly hire a personal lawyer in regards to the "troopergate" investigation? Is it possible the release of information was not legal? Was it done by the state police or other people in the Alaska government who are enemies of Palin?

The longtime love affair between John McCain and what he once called his ``base'' -- the national news media -- is on the rocks. McCain's campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, yesterday lashed out at what he deemed ``offensive'' and ``demeaning'' coverage and questions from reporters after McCain's running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, confirmed her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. ``It used to be that a lot of those smears and the crap on the Internet stayed out of the newsrooms of serious journalists,'' Schmidt said at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Sarah Palin & the Philistines Tuesday, September 02, 2008 11:41:40 AM The New Media Journal - Lance Fairchok
This small town mayor is in fact the governor of a very large state with international borders and the largest oil reserves in the nation. Alaska is center stage for the battle between enviro-fanatics and the reasonable use of resources. She has innate ability, not merely political grooming. Her humble origins are troubling for cynical commentators, especially because she is successful. The press wants political caricatures, not elected officials who are honest and principled. Sarah walks the walk and talks the talk, all without handlers and image-makers, or the party operatives that specialize in hiding unfortunate votes, speeches, financial records and relationships. Sarah Palin is what our middle-class democracy is supposed to be about, by the people, for the people, not by the elites for the elites.
Grace under Fire.....(Gov.Sarah Palin going on with the mission) Tuesday, September 02, 2008 11:59:24 AM American Thinker - Rick Moran
It is rare that we are witnesses to the kind of smear campaign launched against Sarah Palin by Democrats, the left, and the media. The shocking virulence with which the attack has been conducted takes one aback with its audacity and nauseating hypocrisy. The goal of the other side is nothing less than forcing John Mccain to withdraw Palin's name. Or failing that, making things so unpleasant for Palin that she asks to be let go. On both scores, the left has mounted an enormously vigorous challenge to Palin, going so far as to overthrow their own long held political positions on such issues as women's rights and abortion in order to attack her.

On 'Today,' Matalin Slams 'Hair-on-Fire' Media for Attacks on Palin Tuesday, September 02, 2008 2:46:39 PM newsbusters.org - Scott Whitlock
Appearing on Tuesday's "Today" show, Republican strategist Mary Matalin slammed the media for its "hair-on-fire" coverage of Sarah Palin's selection as the Republican vice presidential nominee of John McCain. In particular, she corrected a previous segment by David Gregory which asserted that the Alaska governor had hired an attorney to defend herself against an ethics probe into possible attempts to dismiss a state trooper. Matalin asserted to host Matt Lauer that it wasn't true "that she's hired a lawyer to deal with this trooper issue. The attorney general, state attorney general hired the lawyer."

Putting aside Barack Obama's pious statements about family being "off limits", let us not forget that in every one of his major campaigns, Obama has benefited from information on opponents' family affairs leaking out via the media. In 2004, his surrogates in the Chicago media managed to get George Ryan's sealed divorce records unsealed in 2004, causing Ryan to drop out of the race. Later, when Ryan was replaced on the ticket by by Alan Keyes, surprise! it was revealed that Keyes's teenaged daughter Maya was a homosexual.

I have always tended to think that conservative complaints about the media are a little exaggerated. There are occasionally obvious instances of bias and clear examples of a double standard, but most reporters dont want to fall into those and some conservatives are surely too sensitive to them. But this week has changed my view. I have never seen, and I admit that I could never have imagined, such shameful, out-of-control, frenzied, angry, condescending, and pathetic journalistic malpractice. The ignorant assault on Palins accomplishments and experience, the breathless careless airing of deranged rumors about her private life, the staggeringly indecent...

Ferraro did lament it briefly, but went on to warn the media: A lot of those PUMA [Party Unity My A--] people and I will be watching very carefully to make sure that you treat her just like anybody else....

Quite a few familiar faces that defended Democrat power to the last blot of ink during the impeachment wars.
I realized while I was working on this that unlike during the impeachment wars, there are a LOT fewer journalists out there these days.
Being the brilliant thinkers that they are, the journos apparently haven't realized this, for the most part.
In the old days, they'd be able to deliver their stinking payload (Over conservative target! Poops away!) and run back into the vast journalistic herd, like gazelles on the veldt.
Turns out there ain't as many gazelles to blend in with these days...
Thanks for a terrific compilation. Bookmarked.
CNN actually did a pretty fair hour long piece tonight on Mrs. Palin.
wowzer that had to have taken a while. Bookmarked.
Haven’t decided about CNN as a whole yet. It’s pretty clear that ABC and most of MSNBC are in the tank for Obama.
I agree. I was expecting a hit piece.
I know what your giong to hear from the OLD MEDIA
Thank you! Now, I know it’s been only about two weeks, but I feel like running a show called “Palin’s attackers in the media: Where are they now?” in the same way we have those former actors who played in “Little House in the Prairie” discussing their lives during and after the famous show.
WOW....you went to a lot of trouble. Thank you very much for all your hard work!
Palin is proving that you can be truthful and tough as nails while not being a vengeful bitch.
I lost the wordage to describe it, this need to be filed somewhere here on FR and linked in RED so some of us can see it right away.
Sarah is making history and history does not allow U-turns, so we need to do it right the first time.
Indeed, this need an FR archival spot
