Skip to comments.NYT Asks Readers to Help Dig Up 'Interesting and Newsworthy' Palin Emails (AKA Anti-Palin Dirt)
Posted on 06/09/2011 2:32:24 PM PDT by Robert Drobot
Early Thursday afternoon, Derek Willis posted on the papers "Caucus" blog a request surely enticing to the papers online liberal readership: "Help Us Investigate the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records." Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters says enlisting newspaper readers to pore through the email trove "indirectly amounts to free oppo research for the 2012 Obama campaign."
Sounds like a liberal party at the Times this weekend. But where was this crowd-sourcing investigative enthusiasm upon the release of the 2,000-page Obama-care bill, when it could have uncovered all sorts of expensive hidden surprises?
The Times was actually beaten to this game by the Washington Post, who made a similar request (its a more formal process than the Times') just after noon on Thursday.
January 20, 2013 will be their day of judgment.
What if we take them up on it, and find them instances of Palin’s stellar conduct instead of the dirt they want?
Has anything ever been done like this before? Their fear is palpable. On the other hand, both newspapers are desperate for sales and revenue.

Digging dirt on Palin = shovel ready jobs!
Strange. WaPo just pulled this stunt, then NYT announced this.
After Talking Points Memo, and basically what HoffPost/Koz horde were dreaming of doing ever since 2008.
It is almost as if there is a, dare I say it, coordinated effort....
The Washington Compost is doing the same thing. Commies working in lock step.
The comments on their web site are almost 90% negative against the post.
She is almost not even human anymore. She is a purpose. Its unbelievable. We should all be shuddering and going to her defense
Previous ping that sounds like the same story...isn't. This one's from the NY Times, the previous one was the Washington Post. No one in possession of even a small bit of sanity could look at these two stories and deny the liberal bias...and the fear of Palin.
I don’t know, i’d rather uncover proof of Weener sexting underage girls from his gov’t ofc. He’s actually IN office, while Palin is [thus far] a private person.
They have a track record...
Maybe the new managing editor could call Larry Flynt - he offered a million for dirt on unfaithful 'public servants' and later had to explain (after MUCH response) that he ONLY wanted dirt on Republicans. Too bad the Times can't be as honest and straight forward as Larry Flynt...
I'm retired and an active third party member -- ready to roll; any time and any place I can to lend a hand within any of the Western states regions to secure the GOP presidential nomination for Governor Palin.
The left not only loathes Palin but they obviously fear her. To not recognize that at this late date is to be willfully blind to reality. No other potential or announced candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination has received anywhere near the same kind of attention, albeit, negative. Only president George W. Bush, whom the leftmedia hated with a passion, received anywhere near the same level of scrutiny and criticism. Sarah Palin confounds the left and I hope and pray she continues to do so. I also hope that she decides to run for the GOP nomination. It will be a thing of wonder to watch the left's heads explode and for Palin to surge past the pretenders and raise gargantuan amounts of money, quickly, putting the lie to the months of BS from the leftmedia about Palin being a virtual non-entity and only good as a butt of (unfunny) jokes and smears. Sweet revenge. I can't wait.
PALIN MUST BE DESTROYED AT ALL COSTS. But why? No one wants to vote for her, the polls say she is way behind Obama, she’s stupid and just a country bumpkin. THE LIBS AREN’T AFRAID OF HER, THEY ARE COMPLETELY MORTIFIED OF HER! The change she will bring will definitely not please them. SHE MUST BE CRUSHED, SHE CAN NOT RUN AGAINST OBAMA, THEY PREFER ROMNEY.
"The Times was actually beaten to this game by the Washington Post, who made a similar request"
A blatant case of soliciting the public to engage in character assassination.
While these village idiot liberals with torches dig for dirt that probably doesn’t even exist, they give Weiner a pass?
The leftist and media elite view Sarah Palin as the embodiment, in one single person, of the conservative Christian bloc in this country. Therefore, they know no limits in their hunt to demonize, humiliate and destroy her (and, by proxy) us.
I wish there were 100,000 emails for them to churn through and waste their money. If I was a shareholder of the NYT, I would be furious at this waste of time and money. However, since I’m not, I wish them the best in the ongoing destruction of shareholder wealth. Their shareholders must be complete idiots.
The leftists are telling us who they are most afraid of, and this is a major reason I want a President Palin.
I think that’s a great idea. What if we freeped this project and the Post project by deluging them with emails that verify all the great things Sarah has done. Give them more than 25,000 emails from us to comb through to find what they consider dirt.
This is just beyond the pale! Just when you think they can’t sink any lower..they all do.
Never mind that I didn't and don't support him, HE doesn't know that ;0)
“Perhaps you’d like me to come in there and wash your dick for you, you little sh*t.”
Oh know, not another weiner thread!
They will never pick just regular folks. This is all a ruse. They probably already have the KOS kiddies and DUmmies signed up. This is just blatant communist bully tactics.
WAKE UP AMERICA! YOUR PRESS IS CORRUPT BEYOND REPAIR NOW!
Surprisingly, many of the comments at the bottom of the Slimes story are ripping the Slimes.
Some excellent comments. Definitely makes interesting reading.
That’s just creepy.
So is the NYT’s and other media sources involved in this effort to destroy Palin.
Wasn’t O involved in digging up dirt during the Il senate race, so much that the Repub candidate dropped out of the race. Looks like Dem’s are going that avenue once again. They play dirty, that is why it’s important to call them out on their political lies and deception. Palin does that, and it is messing up their agenda.
The NY Slimes is trying to distract from Weinergate. It won’t work.
That is quite possibly the most disgusting picture I have ever laid eyes on!
(I guess they see no reason to hide their agendas any longer; chilling.)
I have decided that if Sarah Palin decides to run, then she will have my vote in the primary. At this point I cannot consider any other candidate.
The contempt that the MSM has for Palin matches my contempt for the MSM.
If they want a war against all the Palin stands for (which is everything I believe in), then by God we’ll give it to them.
Never mind that I didn't and don't support him, HE doesn't know that ;0)
Actually I DID vote for Romney last time. I was trying to head off a secure victory by McCain in California and was trying to send the nomination to the floor of the Convention (where hopefully neither McCain nor Romney would have won).
This time I am 100% behind Sarah Palin. It is time to stick it to the MSM and the liberal establishment. A Sarah Palin presidency would drive them all crazy (which is kinda redundant since they already are crazy).
We must all remember......they ARE the party of unintended consequences.
With all these people reading her emails, her base will expand.
la slimes is doing the same thing. Sarah should sue the crap out of them when they cross the line. They will do something illegal.
Yes, and their placing moles on Sarah’s Facebook and on here, too, I’m sure. They can kiss it. It’s obvious that she scares the bejeezus out of them. I’m having fun watching them go crazy. They’re playing it as if “she can’t win” and trying to fluff up Romney since they know how popular he is with conservatives (total sarcasm).
Once again, if she matters so little, why are they making her matter so much? We know why. Sarah Palin is the real deal. She may have been a bit shaky at first, but she’s getting smarter every day. She’s not going to let them break her. I just hope she decides to run. (I’m hoping for Palin/DeMint, but right now, I just want Palin.)
I was thinking the same thing. Swamp their site with emails and keep them working on false leads.
The NYT believes it is "newsworthy."
"And the NYT circulation is shrinking as fast as Newt's staff, too.
June 9th 2011.
Watch the day she announces. They are showing their desperation and their knowledge that Palin is nowhere near as unelectable as they make it sound. They know she is not only 0bama’s but a major threat to their own credibility.
Palin/Perry or Perry/Palin
Get used to it...a steaming locomotive coming to a location near you. Get the protests ready.
USA, USA, USA will survive, will thrive, will revive.
I'm in if you guys are. Could we maybe do a sub-rosa ping of the Palin List to gin up some mischeivous support here?
There was a subtle lesson in the recent escapades of Donald Trump. Donald Trump flamboyantly demands Obamas birth certificate...and gets it in short order. Then laughs his way all the way back to better ratings next season. BUT, ask yourself why did Obama respond? /Hold that thought.
How is Trump like Sarah Palin, they both have pop culture notoriety whether positive or negative. Ask yourself, does it really matter if its negative?
The bloom is well off the rose, all Obama has left is his pop culture plastic banana following. The left knows this well -better than most.
