Help Investigate the Palin Emails (Washington Post Recruits Palin-haters)
The Washington Post ^ | Thursday, June 9, 2011 | Ryan Kellett

Posted on 06/09/2011 10:01:42 AM PDT by kristinn

More than 24,000 e-mail messages sent to and from Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska's governor will be released Friday. Join The Post in digging through them. We are looking for 100 organized and dilligent readers who will work alongside Post reporters to analyze, contextualize, and research the emails. Think of it as spending some time in our newsroom.

Our hope is that working together, we can efficiently find interesting information and extract new stories that will lead to further investigation. We don’t know what we’ll find, but we want you to be ready and open for the challenge.

You will communicate with us virtually and work in small teams to make light work of reviewing the email threads. Notice the patterns. Identify recipients and senders. Connect specific emails to larger themes and events.

SNIP

Application form.

Gee. And I thought the State-Run Media looked down upon “citizen journalism.”

It’s absolutely hilarious that they are spending so much time, on someone who is stupid, unimportant, ignorant, racist and could NEVER win against Obama.....should she even run, of course.

Go Sarah! I love how she’s keeping them all in a dither. Keep on keeping them in the dark. LOL ;p

The funny thing is that the emails are/will be public, and the universe will do freely what the Post is trying to control. And it will do it faster and more effectively.

Anything ‘explosive’ should have been uncovered. It is not exactly that she is totally unknown, you know.

What is the point of this stunt then? It is an open invite for people to make sh!t up .....

All the negatives and untruths will be blaring headlines story for days, then correction or retracting story will either be too late or non-existing. Then so-called ‘undecided’ can use the untruth as an excuse, the media had been successful in destroying Palin for years.

This reminds me of the AP assigning 11 of their crack reporters to quickly thumb through ‘Going Rouge’ to try and find something with which to slam Sarah Palin. Meanwhile, Barry continues to get an MSM pass.

Why would they spend so much time, energy, resources, and capital going through her e-mails? She's a civilian, not on the government payroll, and has not announced her candidatecy for any public office.

Oh wait... silly me.

Frankly this lends a lot of credence to the suspicion that it was the Washington Post ~ manifest in news or editorial personnel ~ that burned down Sarah’s former church in Wasilla for the purpose of murdering her, her children, or their friends, believing they were present in the building.

The American commie/socialist/lib MSM make the old Soviet Union’s mouthpiece Pravda resemble a kindergarten class. Going through e-mails to get some dirt on Palin while they did nothing to find out the background of Obama. We knew all about Bush’s days at Yale, yet nothing on Obama’s college days or thesis writings.

The greater number of the volunteers will be potheads and near crazed Leftwingtard apparatchiks.

If the Post imagines they can get work out of those people they deserve to disappear as a newspaper.

They'll probably be overjoyed to find literate and articulate volunteers like MOST Freepers would be.

Where are barry's records when he was a senator. The WP is not subtle showing their commie agenda.

Sarah, a repeat of RR, bringing down the communist.

Sarah commented that she wasn't going to release a schedule of stops on her bus tour, that the media would have to do their jobs.

It appears it's even worse than she says.

Isn’t the lefty WaPo at least going to offer collective bargaining rights to these poor drones? Haven’t they learned from the HuffPo-AOL disaster?

Shades of the 1979 seizure of the US Embassy in Tehran!

32 years ago the Ayatollah’s revolutionary Republican Guard overwhelmed the Shah’s police and the Embassy’s US Marine Corps guards. The crazed fundamentalist adherents of the Ayatollah managed to seize intelligence staff as they were desperately attempting to shred and burn classified documents.

Not long after the new Iranian government, after humiliating Jimmy Carter with their threats to try the hostages, released photographs of dozens dark garbed and scarf wearing young muslim women sitting at long tables patiently sifting through the recovered documents in their attempt to reconstitute them.

In emulating the Iranian young revolutionary guards the Washington Post’s editorial staff communes with their inner Stalist core.

Hello! Washington Post?

How is it that you only “investigate” Conservative Republicans?

Hm?

Are you a news media or a propaganda machine?

To get involved, we ask that you fill out this form that asks you state your case for why you’d be the right person to help report this story in the days following the e-mail release (Friday, June 10 onward).

Well let's see:

I am a dyed-in-the-Wool, delusional, Kool-Aid-Drinking, Far Left, Extremist Moonbat and not only Hate the U.S. and would like to see it destroyed, but can not stomach anyone who claims to be a Conservative or Republican (even RINO's) and anything I can do to help discredit the ONLY person who can possible defeat our Dear Leader and Messiah (Palin) I'll be more than happy to dedicate as much time as necessary to peruse said emails, looking for the most minute detail which can be twisted and misrepresented in order to further embarrass, denigrate, impugn and harm the "Right's Secret Weapon!"
