Skip to comments.How can reporters reach Sarah Palin?
Posted on 02/24/2010 5:29:03 PM PST by Al B.
POLITICOs Andy Barr reported earlier that Meg Stapleton, spokesperson and top adviser to Sarah Palin resigned to spend more time with family.
Now CNNs Peter Hamby follows up on the news and writes how not only did McCain campaign staffers and Palin insiders grumble about Stapletons handling of Palin, but also journalists.
Members of the political press corps have also long been frustrated with Stapleton, who was the primary conduit between Palin and members of the media since the end of the 2008 presidential race, but rarely responded to phone calls or e-mails. When Stapleton did, they were often terse or combative.
Hes right that getting a comment or sometimes even an acknowledgment from Stapleton could be difficult. I tried several times in recent months on Palin-related stories, and Stapleton never responded, while her voice mail was repeatedly full and unable to accept messages. [UPDATE:It turns out Stapleton had two e-mail accounts, and some reporters tell me they had an easier time getting through to her on the one I wasn't using. Still, other reporters say they had trouble getting a response even using that other account].
Since the mainstream media can't get enough of covering Palin, the question remains as to how reporters can even reach Palin, who these days is more likely to heard via Facebook or Fox News.
Hamby reports that there are no immediate plans to hire a replacement for Stapleton. So as of right now the only contact seems to be through Palins PAC, which provides a phone number which goes right to an answering machine and an e-mail address with no specific person to contact (email@example.com).
Reporters will get a quick response by e-mailing the info account, although not necessarily a personal one: Thank you for your e-mail. Due to the large number of responses, it may take awhile for us to fully respond. Thank you."
By ‘reporters’, of course, they mean dishonest,Obama- worshiping, fact distorting, lying attack dogs.
You gotta love it.
Why the heck not?
So let me get this straight. They bitch about Palin but Obo hasn't had a press conference in eight months?
Uhhh . . . you mean News Pukes? Those 'reporters'?
The msm acts as tho Sarah is more important than the presidente.
One single line on her Facebook page and the world takes notice.
One twitter and the msm gets it’s panties in a twist.
BobJ is polishing his resume as we speak.
Seems to be easier to get ahold of Palin than it is for FOX to get ahold of Barry Soetero, ‘ceptin if your BOR.
He has inroads and is lookin out for y’all morons.
I wonder how much the money the left pays their 17 yr old
lemmings to write this stuff for their blogs.
These morons trashed her repeatedly during the campaign and wondered why later they weren’t invited for tea?
Heh...isn’t that the truth!
I have no idea why Politico is even complaining, If Sarah wasn’t so gracious, Politico would be ban. Politico was the one’s just a month ago claim that “Palin believes that Iraq was behind 9/11” which she never said in a transcript, they lied! Then they claim that in a speech which they didn’t hear in MN that Sarah was implying that Obama was the one that moved “In God We Trust” to the side of the coin, she was just using an anecdotal and was talking about the society as a whole moving away from God. Politico has written many other things that were outrageous about Sarah Palin...check there history, it’s right there!
Otherwise, they're just looking for dirt to trash her with or to respond to dirt they've already written. Why should she respond to that?
She knows who to call if she's got something to say.
Why do they want to reach Sarah? They don’t have to reach her with all the lies they make up.
Wow, talk about hubris
These dirtbags trash her family like New Year Days parade and expect to get a timely response ?
Thank you!! How arrogant of them to demand anything from her or her camp after all of the things they have done!
