Posted on 08/16/2011 5:55:33 PM PDT by TomServo
The press corps has a mild buzz going about a weekend contretemps ginned up, for publicity's sake, by Sarah Palin's camp, in her ongoing campaign to show how badly she is victimized by the media. The odd thing is that she has been victimized by the media, horribly so, and many of us (myself included, in several posts after the Gabby Giffords shooting) have rushed to her defense -- so she doesn't need to gin up controversies out of thin air. But that's exactly what she and her team did this past weekend.

Wow, that is the lamest article I’ve ever seen.
When the MSM works up the guts to apologize for the YEARS and TENS OF THOUSANDS of misquoted articles and hit pieces based on unicorn farts, I’ll think about labeling Palin a Diva.
Tha Spectator ought to fire the idiot that wrote that. Friggin hilarious stupidity on display there.
Reporters are such whiners.
Pfffttt.. The air going out of Palin’s balloon.
It’s worse than you think. Having worked in the industry I ASSURE you that when they get smacked down they pout the rest of the day while they write the article. Then the ‘Thin ink line’ mentality kicks in and the others go defensive and get all righteous the next time that subject gets covered/interviewed.
Anyone who ever worked a newsroom will tell you a similar story.
Yes it’s pretty lame....no juice to it at all.
Why don’t you read this before you post something like this? http://conservatives4palin.com/2011/08/quin-hillyers-article-was-wrong.html
Thanks for the link/reply.
Let’s see, was there ever an apology from Dan Rather for his fake but accurate document? Or from all the other RATporters who did their damnedest to destroy GWB up to and including endangering troops and the security of our country?
Ska-rew the presstitutes...wait a minute, they’d like that.
May the teabagging perverts all develop ED.
Unfortunately one can easily and totally ***** someone with a BS article thoroughly, and satisfactorily.
But I still share your desire ;)
First, if Pappas wears the scolding as a badge of honor, it might lead to better job offers given the make-up of those who hire journalists.
Second, Palin has to rapidly respond to anything that looks remotely like she supports Romney. The scolding, and the hubbub after accomplishes her objective, which is to make it clear that she is NOT endorsing Romney. If she is anything other than loud and brash on this stuff, it WILL be taken the wrong way.
Because the poster has a history of cheap hits on Palin.
Thanks for that. It’s nice that there are still a few people like McCain out there. That may not always be the case.
Why don’t you KMA?
Palin's balloon will always fly in the majestic heights of the stratosphere among the radiant light of her extremely loyal supporters.
As far as the rest of America goes, the Palin zeppelin crashed and burned a long time ago.

Question 25. Sarah Palin - Do you think this person would make a good president or not?
.................YES.........NO.......DK.....Never heard of
Not ready for primetime. She should know better. Worse than eatin’ a corndog. Worse than not going to family reunion. Worse than missin’ Elvis deathday. All of that and more.
I haven’t begun to cover all of the worse thans.
Can't argue with you there. AFAIC, they're all an arrogant lot. We have a few (former) on FR (not gonna mention names) that are the biggest blowhards.
Keep Motown Active? No, why would you ask palinsupporter1 to "keep Motown active?
Klingons Meet in Allentown? No, that doesn't seem to work either.
Gee TomServo, what are you trying to say?
Look it up - you’ll remember it longer.
Can you describe what it’s like to be lost in that fantasy of yours? It sounds a lot like a bad acid trip. Are their ponies and unicorns?
Really...help us understand the inner workings of the troll mind. I’ll bet you were the class clown in high school. Still there?
Payback is hell when the shoe is on the other foot. LOL
Ain’t it Norman the n00b? Hah hah hah
What? No sense of humor?
Indylindy, RitaOK and many others on here at FR are women.....the catty ones who are jealous
We all know that many acronyms have multiple meanings; so how would I know if I got the right one?
Besides, if you would post an acronym, surely you would post the clear text. Won't you share your “wit?”
Then she should make sure she’s chastising the CORRECT PERSON who made the assumption. Not being sure of her facts before she spouts off just makes her look bad!
Hardly Big Mike. I like Bachmann.
I have told you many times why I am adverse to Palin, but you don’t want to hear real reasons, so all you have in your toolbox is whining about jealousy.
The other day I defended Palin on this remark. After all it sure isn’t as bad as not rebuking McCain publically for calling Tea Party people “hobbits”.
They don’t need the E.
One long silly whine—quite unprofessional.
Complaining about some one Else’s thin skin.
Lindy, I could have signed up yesterday and shown you for the drooling troll you are. But you do it so well, you don’t need my help.
Didn’t you just get smacked recently for trolling? Gotta be careful, electricity hurts like hell when it hits. So what IS it like in the wonderland of your mind anyway...still wanna know.
Great article. Tnx for linking to it.
I have heard about that type.
I think they got left on the bench at the prom, personally. Attitudes like they have, it’s not hard to imagine. ;)
They wanna be the cheerleader, but got stuck on the AV squad. And not because of looks.
Absolutely not. Making up things is common for your type.
What pathetic desperation. The anti-Palin crowd is leaving trails of urine running to grasp at any and every straw.
“I am” printed on her tshirt a couple days ago occupied 4 pages of speculation on whether this was the final proof she was the antichrist.
Getting the Facts Straight on Quin Hillyers and Politicos Stories
Palin messed up.
I didn’t make anything up...I “asked.” Can’t read Lindy? No shock. You don’t understand things too well and Reading IS fundamental to that.
Explains the rest of your slobber over Palin.
There’s no such thing as a good reporter!
Hey, Karl... is that you?
I gotta see that! whats the link?
You are very funny, Norm.
You are also full of it.
I am not the one doing the slobbering. That would be you.
Have a lovely evening.
Wow.. Sorry. That is lame.
I like Sarah and look forward to voting for her, but man, she needs to get her head straight.
How very patrician of you to speak for the rest of America. Your statistics don't mean anything this early in the race, and if you think they do, then you're a royal idiot.
Hmmm... That may explain a few things.
I’m not trying to be funny Lindy? I asked questions to better understand why you post all manner of snide and disparaging remarks about Palin as your posting history shows, act catty toward her and her family and supporters and just generally don’t contribute anything positive on a site the boss calls “Palin Country” and has 87% of the members being Palin supporters?
What’s funny about that?
“Wow, that is the lamest article Ive ever seen.”
Shouldn’t be surprising, though. Quin Hillyer has a history of taking cheap shots at the conservative ladies.
Can’t wait for ‘The Undefeated’, our copy’s in the mail.
I’d said that I was locked in already and didn’t ‘need’ to see it, (I’m going to buy it regardless) but I hear from many that it’s filled with a lot of ‘new’ info that even long time supporters missed.
Very much looking forward to it.
