Michael Shear Sour Over Sarah Palin's Lack of Respect for Mainstream Media
Times Watch ^ | May 31, 2011 | Clay Waters

Posted on 05/31/2011 4:36:27 PM PDT by yoe

New York Times chief political blogger Michael Shear is a bit annoyed that Sarah Palin is successfully attracting media attention while ignoring reporter’s inquiries and playing hide-and-seek with the press on her "One Nation" bus tour. (Photo by the Times' David Winter.) Shear, who has filed multiple blog posts on the Palin family's historical trail through the Northeast, made Tuesday’s print edition with his gripes: (Palin Family Hits Road, if Not 2012 Trail)

Ms. Palin announced her bus tour with great fanfare last week and is using it on her Web site to raise money for her political action committee. Despite that, she is acting as though her family is just like any other on vacation.

Never mind the charter bus plastered with images of the Constitution. Or the fact that her family vacation has a name: the One Nation Tour. Or that she is documenting her family’s movements on a Web site that invites Americans along. Or that she might just run for president.

Perhaps he resented following Palin over the Memorial Day holiday? Shear’s Tuesday morning "Caucus" post sounded just as sour: (Palin dismisses medias.....)

This isn’t a coronation, decided by the press.

It’s an election, decided by the people.

Get used to it.

This is like the 10th report (different) I’ve read today of whiny cry-baby media morons lamenting the fact they are too stupid for their own good and that they can’t keep up with Sarah.

I never get tired of reading these. Bring it on Sarah. Anyone who makes utter fools of these fools get my vote!

“Americans” does not include the MSM, and especially not the NYTimes -— not sure what country they are from.

This press whinging is reminicent of Newt having a hissy because Clinton made him use the rear airplane exit. That was the end of Newt; maybe this will be the end of the MSM.

What kind of a whiner is this guy? In our family we alway's name our vacations! ASK any Shrew about "The Move". It was a classic. We should do a poll. I bet 1/2 of American's name their vacations and more do in retrospect.

This guy is just upset he didn't get asked to fill out Obama's foursome yesterday and had to cover Palin and brush up against the working class.

Regards,

TS

When a miserable mob of wretches make it their mission in life to rummage through your trash, mock your family, spit upon your patriotism and also devote gallons of ink to splashing poisonous letters about you and your family across the world's canvas, you might be forgiven for taking it somewhat personally.

I am not Sarah Palin's biggest booster, but I give her credit for having the forbearance to respond with good humor and the imagination to allow the news media to reveal themselves as the soulless camp-followers they have become.

I think all families should give their vacations a name. Sort of like the military naming their operations. VACATION: Big Band-Aid

“Ladies and Gentlemen, we have an emergency. Do you know these people? We understand they do not, but they are calling themselves ‘the American press.’ If you recognize them, please speak up.”

That’s actually happened. I know of one man, an exec on a plane, who had that happen to him when he complained about his seat.

Whatever happened to media boycott of all things Palin?

How’d that work out?

It seems SP is now running her own boycott and we’re seeing who gets hurt most by playing that game.

Left-wing political bloggers, and left-wing political bloggers for the New York Times Slimes have never treated her with anything but cold contempt. Mr. Shear finds it astounding that she returns the 'favor?

Grow up Shear! You, and your kind deserve to have the arrogance and contempt you continually show to Middle America mirrored right back at you, cubed! I don't give a damn where it was you went to take 'Marxism 101', and how long it took you to get indoctrinated. You are *not* some kind of an elite, now, in the past, or ever will be. So, have yourself a nice hot, steaming cup of STFU...

Why don’t the media file stories about all of the Historical sites visted by the Palins?
The paleomedia could explain why the History is such a vital part of America’s foundation

“..Palin is successfully attracting media attention while ignoring reporter’s inquiries...”

Must be only one reporter is being ignored, since the author, Clay Waters, wrote “reporter’s” instead of “reporters’”. Does he get paid for being ignorant in the basics of grammar?

Sarah Louise Palin

Born February 11, 1964 in Sandpoint, ID (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)

Parents were
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.

Palin is wearing her best poker face; she holds the winning hand in a poker game with the MSM, and she knows she’s in the game, but they don’t’ - they’ve been used to preferential treatment by candidates who court them. - Now, they know that if she IS by some chance elected, their exclusive access to the White House turns quickly to poop.
