Sarah Palin's bus tour treats reporters like paparazzi

Sarah Palin and her advisers are refusing to tell members of the media where she is going on her current bus tour - and the former Alaska governor seems to be enjoying the cat and mouse game that's resulted.
"I don't think I owe anything to the mainstream media ... I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this, and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop's going to be," she told fellow Fox News employee Greta Van Susteren in an interview from the bus.
Yet the reemergence of the GOP's larger-than-life 2008 vice presidential candidate - who says she is strongly considering a run for president - is undeniably news. Which is why more than a dozen national news outlets have sent reporters and producers out to try and follow Palin.
Since Palin and her team won't share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin's bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles - including a massive CNN bus - all trying to make sure they don't lose sight of the Palin bus.
It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.

LOVE YA SARAH! (Oh, and if you get the chance, kick 'em in the teeth for me, too.)
Someone in the back of Palin’s bus should dump a bag of drywall nails on the highway; that’ll take care of the media pests!
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.
Sounds like a movie:
Smoking Palin and the Bandits.

It ain’t “cat and mouse”.
It’s more like “buzz off, bozos”, you know, the kind of brush-off the head cheerleader gives to the creepy guys.
Why would you follow a stupid person who doesn’t matter anyway everywhere she goes?
I like the nails idea!
Yeah, you just keep dissin’ them, to give them a taste of their own medicine...
The MSM has dissed the entire U.S. of A, by not giving us the real news and for not understanding what “freedom of the press” is all about. The MSM is like TMZ these days...
They act as such and should so be treated.
Finally, someone’s had the guts to punch the bully and leave him bleeding on the playground.
“It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.”
Women, children, and minorities at greatest risk.
The only danger here is that CBS et al may lose control of the discussion.
Giving the LSM a dose of their own medicine! You go girl!
Make it 51:8
“It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.:”
Then tell the MSM morons to BACK OFF!
“But, what’s really dangerous is that she just might get enough people to vote for her as president”
MSM ‘thought’ mode!
This reminds me of the chase scene from “It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.”
Palin didn't announce the tour to the media or invite them.
She is just a private citizen who is taking her family on a tour of historic sites in a bus and told her three million closest friends about it.
I’d like to hear her say
“look, you guys have acted like an enemy propaganda organ for about 30 years now, so why would I treat you differently?”
Hilarious. The MSM can screw. No one cares what their opinions are of Palins junket. We already know what they have to say.
Remember, she went to school to become a reporter so she knows how to play them like a cheap volin. I hope they get lost in some back road so they can see what the REAL UNITED STATES is like!! Don’t think the media could report anything like that however, they do not have the skill, ability or training.
LSM - attention media whores.
Papparazzi - attention media whores.
Don’t really see much of a dif!
This is just brilliant.
How DARE she treat them like this!? LOL
Now what? Do they just pout? LOL
She’s just shown them who’s the boss.
Sarah Palin, showing the pink-tie GOP ruling-class how it’s done.
(Psssst. She's on vacation with her family. Why not just leave her the hell alone? Breaking news - the rookie Hussein spent six hours away from his family while golfing on Memorial Day. Sounds like trouble with the marriage.)
Where Sarah is concerned...the msm is a huge step below paparazzi.
It wasn't too annoying the first 50 times. I'm one of those who believes that Obama was not born in the US, but there is nothing about posting that in every thread discussing a potential Republican candidate that is clever, exposes an issue that all of us don't already know about, or changes anybody's mind. It's just annoying.
You know that there is hysterical laughter coming from the bus. Too bad the back doesn’t have windows...it would be a hoot to see these jackasses behind her trying to keep up.
Puts me in mind of the movie ‘It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, World’
50 is closer, you’re correct.
Wouldn’t it be great for her to call them on it?
Papparazzi do occasionally come up with pictures that people want to see.
Thus is hysterical.The comments from the left about how stupid she is yadda yadda all the while paying attention to her and the media whinning about not getting an itenaray of their summer vacation? What exactly do they need that for? She has made a complete circus of them and still they follow her.Has it not occured to them that if she does announce more than likely she will sneak out without the bus and they will miss the whole thing?
Good policy. If they had advance notice, the msm would alert goon squads to go there and start trouble.
How dare her! Doesn't she know they consider themselves special because they have a four-year degree??

re: “It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.”
Typical left wing tripe. They are so predictable - twist everything she does or says to fit the media’s “she’s dangerous and stupid” template.
How about Obama’s actions that truly have led to dangerous situations: weakening America’s military, weakening our standing in the world by his constant apologizing on our behalf, failure to enforce DOMA, failure to enforce illegal immigration laws, sue states that attempt to stop his lack of border enforcement and his insane Obamacare.
Yeah, making the media follow her bus in 15 cars sure is a dangerous situtation - don’t the media know how to drive?? I guess if they hit someone it’s Palin’s fault (just like Bush’s fault)??
Even if Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama had been birthed in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House he is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.
The Palins should continually heads down backwoods country roads and stop in the middle of nowhere to have cookouts. Can’t you just see all those MSM types looking at their watches and cussing..LOL
You just asked the $64,000 question.
OH boy can you see them following an empty bus to a far away car wash where they could besurrounded by hundreds of people dressed in Palin 2012 t shirts and video cameras asking why they are hassling Sarah? IMHO this should happen on the day she decides to announce so only a pre selected group can make the announcement you knwo the ones who have treated her with respect and allowed them a summer vacation....
I just had a hilarious idea.
Find someone that resembles Sarah’s general look and size and have her waiting at a rest stop somewhere. Palin goes in..the double comes out. Then Sarah takes the doubles car and drives to some city to hold a rally...it all comes down and the press troops are following the bus somewhere far away from the action.
It would get wall-to-wall press coverage for days...you can’t buy that kind of publicity. :-)
What’s the difference?
None of us owe anything to the MSM. It’s a criminal enterprise.
This is about control. By them having to follow her not knowing where she is going next it puts her in control of the media and they hate it. This is how they translate their hatred into another attempted media lynching.
Is it true she sent her bus to Baltimore, with press following, to visit the sites in DC? If so, what a great maneuver!
