Skip to comments.Michael Shear Sour Over Sarah Palin's Lack of Respect for Mainstream Media

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...
