Skip to comments.Palinís bus tour causes media bickering on Twitter (journalists turn on each other!)
Posted on 05/31/2011 11:33:44 AM PDT by Bigtigermike
Sarah Palins efforts to confuse the media about her bus tour seems to have worked; shes turning them against each other.
I want them [the mainstream media] have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this, Palin told CNN. This morning, she fooled some of them, leaving her bus behind as a decoy. Reporters have resorted to chasing her bus. All of this confusion seems to have gotten to the press who, understandably, are trying to get the story and do their jobs.
Now, some of the media frustration is playing out on Twitter.
Some journalists believe Palin is behaving like a celebrity, and that covering her may be beneath them.
This was a bit too much for CNNs Peter Hamby who is hot on Palins trail. Hamby responded to both Franke-Ruta and Smith, Tweeting: Believe it or not were asking serious questions. (And, btw, politico has a reporter here too).

You magnificent Babe!
The Jammer in Chief causes problems in every city he visits.
Palin -on every level- behaving more Presidential than Obama.
ahahah - Go Sarah!
After all, this *is* CNN we're talking about here...
How dare Sarah Palin not be buddy buddy with the media..I mean its the media after all who accused her of putting a bullet in Gabby Giffords head..come on Sarah, can’t ya take a joke/sarc
I LOVE it!
I doubt that. They're following her trying to catch her in an unguarded moment, maybe saying something incongruent, maybe with her hair messy, whatever.
They consider it their "job" to ruin her.
I remember during the 2010 campaign she couldn't believe McCain was shutting down in Michigan and conceding the upper midwest that she thought was in-play while he chased Pennsylvania. I believe she was right.
Flabbergast em, Sarah.
The PRESS ( = paleomedia ) sat in their buses and cars
texting each other and the White House.
Gov. Palin (Madam President) met with the crowds.
The PRESS ( oh, how proud they are ) falsely reported she was
nowhere to be seen and fabricated that
she and Americans had created a "dangerous traffic situation
( their parlance for 'did not obey us').
TOFLOL they are following her and sticking a camera in their faces whenever they see any of the Palin’s and then they complain about being treated like pavarazzi. HMM maybe if you didn’t act like you wouldn’t be treated as?

Why isn’t the press calling her a “Maverick”?
Sarah is showing them she does not!
I'm Lov'n It!
Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Charles R Heath, born in ID
Sarah Sheeran, born in WI
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Sarah Palin is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.
Why? Why are they following her? Why are they paying her the least attention at all? Pretty much every single member of the Beltway Punditocracy has counted her out, thrown dirt on her grave, and used it for a bathroom. They've written her off so many times, the paper has a hole in it.
Why do they care? She doesn't matter, right? She doesn't have a chance, right? She's irrelevant, right?
I just don't get it.
Is this fun or what?
Garance Franke-Ruta's tweet: Right, right but thats how youre treating her, not how shes treating you."
The media can treat a person anyway they want because they are "the media".
But this same media demands to be treated a particular way by a private citizen.
They see nothing wrong with treating her with disdain, or contempt, or disrespect, but by God she better treat them with the respect they are due. Or they might just quit covering her!
Since they outright lie as well as fabricate stories about all the Palin’s, why don’t they just sit in a nice cool bar and relax.
For a bunch of really smart people, she sure has them not finding their backsides with either hand.
The weather is way too hot for that coat, but she does look . . . dare I say it . . . presidential.
All the alcohol should really enhance the stuff they make up about her as they go along...
It’s only Day 3, and the press is already in full meltdown mode.
This is worth the price of admission, just for the entertainment value.
Absolutely...I feel miserable today; but today's Palin threads are entertaining beyond belief. I needed a couple of good laughs today, Sarah...much appreciated!
I seee we got new photoshop for George Patten quote RIGHT on FR COOL LOL!
Way to go, Sarah!
After five days hanging out in campgrounds and greasy spoon diners with nary a latte in sight these guys will be climbing the walls!
Tell the reporters (journalist is too professional, which they are not) to do their job or go home. Frankly, neither way does anyone care.
Sarah manning the guns!
this woman is American and fighting for our country despite the nonstop attacks on her and her family for the last 3 years.
what they've done to her and her family should be criminal. she owes them nothing.
this is the first candidate i would volunteer to be security / meat-shield for (since Reagan)
Don’t like seeing her so exposed to the public.
As it becomes more apparent that she’s going to run, some homo-nazi may get close enough to shoot her.
She shoots back.
That pic was clicked early AM there at Gettysburg, likely a bit cooler in the morning.
Looks like she’s checking her bearings and Todd’s waiting to load the cannon.
Considering she’s living rent free (and Lord knows, there’s lots of available space) in their heads 24/7, she could sublet and make a FORTUNE!
Notice the Flag pin on he lapel.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our American dead....
works for me
i know who i stand with as the fan approaches
Bumping for later...
