Meet David Chalian: Producer of Charlie Gibson's Palin Interview
bigGovernment.com ^ | 8/29/2012 | John Sexton

Posted on 08/29/2012 5:36:30 PM PDT by GVnana

Yahoo news director David Chalian was fired today after he was caught making an offensive comment on an open mic. Chalian was caught saying of the RNC convention, which took place as hurricane Issac hit New Orleans, "They are happy to have a party with black people drowning."

->snip<-

Perusing Chalian's biography, I found this: "As part of the team that traveled to Alaska to produce Sarah Palin's first television interview as the GOP vice presidential nominee (with ABC News' Charlie Gibson), Chalian received an Emmy Award nomination."

This is the infamous gotcha interview in which Gibson stared down his reading glasses at Palin and demanded a definition of the Bush doctrine. It's also the interview in which Gibson confronted Palin with a partial quote and, when she claimed it wasn't accurate, snapped, "Exact words."

GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, “Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God.” Are we fighting a holy war?

PALIN: You know, I don’t know if that was my exact quote.

Further proof that, as Andrew Breitbart said, our number one enemy is the media.

Wonder who scheduled that encounter?

IIRC, Governor Palin wanted to make the rounds on talk radio soon after the convention but the “media consultants” kept her holstered until this interview. Then they set her up for 9 hours of “conversation” with the Perky One, the majority of which wound up on the cutting room floor.

These inside-the-beltway types sure know what they’re doing. Right?

Your post #14. On the treatment of Sarah Palin by various media entities.

"Sure they do! They ruined Sarah Palin on purpose !"

I can still see in my mind, Gibson looking down through his lowered spectacles at Sarah. I seethed at this man playing the old venerable statesman of the media. I will not repeat my epithets here. I will though, slightly adjust an old adage, to whit .

She who laughs last, laughs the longest. (Hope it is Sarah).

Believe me, everyone who has attacked Sarah will meet their due sooner or later. It’s a law that no one can change “What you sow you reap, MORE than you sow, LATER than you sow”.

Wonder when it’s harvest time for Romney. He’ll need his minions to help him to carry the ‘load’.

They didn’t ruin her. She’s alive and well and actively campaigning for conservatives while they are still pulling out the thorn in their side. They are hell bent on ruining America and she is the person who represents America along w/Newt. And, yes, it’s all on purpose and very easy because they have help from the GOPe.

I still have high hopes for Sarah, but she’s very damaged personally. It’ll take a lot more years to rehabilitate her image if she wants to run herself. Meanwhile, she’s been invaluable to the movement getting good Congresscritters elected.

The same reason Romney picked Paul Ryan, to bolster his conservative bona fides.

But they wanted someone they could control; what the got was a force of nature.

I believe that. What other gov had 83% favorable rating and all she was able to do in Alaska. Remember the GOP guy in Alaska she exposed? They knew her rep. Corruption from either side she will take to task. TRULY an honest, who cannot be bought politician. And they can’t have that!!

They knew long before that she couldn't be controlled! They knew her reputation in Alaska. They started trashing her right out of the gate in Aug '08 - they/GOPe were prepared to do this.

WRONG!! What is damaged is your thinking process. How many more years will it take to rehabilitate that?

Sarah has NOT been damaged - through it all - it showed how CLEAN and HONEST she is. They stooped so low to move in right next door to her/family, examine her 25,000 emails, brought her up on 13 separate times - ALL CLEAN. I like them to do that to you. And that's merely the tip of the iceberg!

She is THE MOST scrutinized politician in America, past present and future. I'm not even touching on what they did to her family.

ALL SO ROMNEY could have a clear path to the WH!

You are correct. What, indeed, made me think posting what I think on this thread was a good idea? That's where it breaks down.

A bunch of two bit punks, over educated indoctrinated at the finest schools.

All fixed now. What passes for "education" in today's over abundance of liberal institutions of "higher learning" is little more than brainwashing and rote memorization of talking points, distorted or reinterpreted "facts" to backup Marxist ideals, and apparently a trained reaction to illicit extreme hatred and intent to destroy when challenged on this indoctrination.

Media is the #1 enemy in this country and these liars are the product of an organized communist takeover of our educational system. They learned early, beginning with garbage grade school textbooks, which incidentally are created by journalism majors. Pretty vicious circle.

In the last four years, Sarah Palin has moved the US Congress to the Right, which is more than you can say for John Mcain, Steve Schmidt, or Nicole Wallace.

She also became independently wealthy. And still looks good enough to make any paparazzi walk over Katie Couric to get a shot.

Take your pick how you’d like to define revenge; her post-election career fits any definition.

Watching the RNConvention it occurred to me that the ghost of Sarah Palin was very strong there. The night she stepped on the stage at the RNC 2008 and spoke the minds of conservative Americans “out loud” she changed the political conversation. She gave Conservatives across this great land permission to speak up for what we believe. Paul Ryan’s speech would have been much different tonight had it not been for Sarah Palin. Few will admit her influence, but it was there. God bless her for her sacrifices for America.

Sarah Palin's Ping List

PALIN:" No no no no! Please go vote! Let me ask you — man, do me a favor. If this go-around you don’t know who you dislike more or like more, Romney or Obama — this go-around, give Romney a shot.

We don’t want to repeat the failed policies of President Obama. That’s insanity, to repeat the same failures over and over again and expect a different result."
