Skip to comments.Michael Shear Sour Over Sarah Palin's Lack of Respect for Mainstream Media
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 reporters 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 Tuesdays 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 familys 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? Shears Tuesday morning "Caucus" post sounded just as sour: (Palin dismisses medias.....)

Somebody get him some ice.
Doesn’t she know who they are? LOL
I believe John Bender said it best, when he said, “B...O...O....H...O...O”
This isn’t a coronation, decided by the press.
It’s an election, decided by the people.
Get used to it.
No. At least, "Not me!" He can get his own ice.
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!
How amusing. Bullies are so thin-skinned when the tables are turned.
She owes the media the same level of respect that has been extended to her.
You go Sarah, the media did NOTHING for you. Ignore the bastards.
Shear was promoted to bitch in residence after the retirement of Frank Rich.
Sarah’s going to win this thing... Others could, but they have to get through her first. Lucky for us, she reflects our views better than most of the other candidates.
Come on Sarah show some respect and let Michael know how much you need him before he goes ‘round the bend. LOL!
Lack of respect for the enemedia? LOLOL!!
She invited Americans along.
“Americans” does not include the MSM, and especially not the NYTimes -— not sure what country they are from.
Gee what is not to like about the mainstream media..they are such a wonderful bunch..they after all accused Sarah Palin of putting a bullet into Gabrielle Giffords head..but of course they were only kidding, can’t Sarah take a joke
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.
I’m not sure what planet they’re from...
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.
Sarah knows that when you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.
They should get a room with perky Katy and her editors and sort it out in front of some mirrors.
Yo Michael, you blithering twit. My admiration for Gov. Palin has SOARED over her disrespect of the media.
Payback’s a bitch, ain’t it Twinkie?
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.
Michael Shear is a crybaby.
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.
Michael, Michael, Michael ole boy...you need to get over yourself.
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...
Using Michael Shear’s logic, he must be absolutely livid at the way Obama treats the press!
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
Spot on Jewbacca!
Pizza with Palin and West!
I like it!
what a bunch of pathetic liberal whiners. sheesh. big BABIES!!
She has somebody from Fox, CNN and RCP...
I don't see a problem...
Midol might cure his symtoms quicker...
She treats them like the human waste they are.
You need to fix that gif and make it with the Palin bus logo.
“..Palin is successfully attracting media attention while ignoring reporters 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?
As noted in the Obama vs. Bibi match:
Respect is earned.
So is Contempt.

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.
