Palin & the press: Learn from Reagan's playbook (Polutico wants her to stop being mean to them)
Poluitico ^ | Sunday February 6, 2012 | Johnathan Martin

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Sarah Palin offered an extended tribute to Ronald Reagan in Santa Barbara Friday night, praising him specifically for not being bothered by criticism. Then, in an interview the CBN's David Brody following the speech, she said that if she ran for president she'd follow the same course of ignoring the naysayers.

But she couldn't help but get in a jab at the press in the same interview, telling Brody that “much of the mainstream media is already becoming irrelevant."

Continue Reading Such shots have, of course, become staples of Palin's repertoire. They illustrate that, despite her claims, criticism plainly does get to her.

Yes, see we in the media just blame you Sarah for being implicit in murder in Tucson, we accused you of getting your hair done in Haiti on a relief mission when it was just your daughter putting a clip back in your hair......etc. but if you say that we in the media are irrelevant then those are divisive and mean words and you are thin skinned......ok!

Couldn't help? Actually, Jonathan, she did it on purpose.

And, as you know, it's true.

So now we have MSM, LSM, and thin skinned media - TSM - and of course the Governor is on top of them all.

Only in the newspeak that is our current reality could telling the truth be considered a jab.

Sarah, girl, keep it up!!! It is not the media (Politico) getting to you woman!!! It is you, my lady, getting to them. “Politico” has had its fifteen minutes of fame and has morphed into a shill and spin rag for American Hater, POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama. Keep up the attack, Sarah, “Politico” can’t stand it!!!

What a whining loser Martin is. Apparently the criticism gets to him as well or he would not obsess about it. Remember Martin is the hack that was spreading rumors that Palin was ducking scheduled interviews with Hannity, Levin and Rush. The rumors were fabricated lies.

Choose your battles Sarah. First, take on the ones you can win. (I bet she already knows this. LOL)

I think she’s actually working off Truman’s playbook on this one.

Journ0lists, the lamestream and all others conveniently overlook the fact that GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN’S DEGREE IS IN JOURNALISM, so she knows precisely what they’re up to and it isn’t news reporting or good journalism.

Yeah, Sarah.You’d damn well better follow this ‘Journolist’s’ advice and don’t fight your media raping:
Just lay back and enjoy it.

Politico’s views on Palin are akin to a Martin Luther King retrospective produced by the Klan.

Since she has a degree in journalism, the Governor knows how the MSM operate. She has their number and knows how to hurt their little feelings. Poor babies!

Here's the deal, Johnathan. You and your "news media" ilk start practicing responsible journalism again. Try actually reporting the news, you know, the who, what, when, where and how? Sarah Palin has your collective nuts in a vice only because you've been derelict in your duty to your profession. Do you even realize what a laughingstock you've become to us "peasants" in flyover country? Of course not, your elitist mind can't comprehend such a thing. Keep it up, you irrelevant twit.

It used to be said that you don’t piss off those who buy ink by the barrel. But this is the age of Facebook, Twitter and The Net.

The playing field has been leveled.

This is why the great fear or her and the feeling really of perplexity in how to deal with her because she will not let them slander and frame the debate with their lies and propaganda, leftist agenda ‘news’. She is the biggest threat they have ever faced in making it clear we have to question the media and not allowing Demonrats to get away with the stereotype in political rhetoric and their hypocrisy. She is exactly what has been needed a long time and we would not be in this dire situation if Republicans had actually been in opposition these yrs. Sarah understands what anyone who challenges their lies is up against and she will not take it. They are left to whine and stress like this LOL.
