UPI Say ABC Exhibits Double Standard - NO DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
UPI ^ | Sept. 12, 2008 | MARTIN SIEFF

Posted on 09/13/2008 4:48:53 AM PDT by urroner

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- There were no surprises, no knockout zingers, but also no bloopers Thursday night in Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's first TV interview since becoming the Republican vice presidential nominee.

Charles Gibson of ABC News was out for blood and inherently applied a double-standard compared with the kid gloves George Stephanopoulos used on Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois on Sunday night.

Gibson was out to embarrass Palin and expose her presumed ignorance from the word go. By contrast, when Obama referred to his "Muslim faith" on Sunday and did not correct himself, Stephanopoulos rushed in at once to help him and emphasize that the senator had really meant to say his Christian faith.

By contrast, Gibson tried to embarrass Palin by referring to her Christian faith in asking people to pray for U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Palin countered by pointing out she was following the precedent set by Abraham Lincoln.

Palin also expressed her support for Georgia and Ukraine joining the U.S.-led NATO alliance. That statement was predictable and consistent with the current policy of the Bush administration. The policy has dangerously raised tensions with Russia, but Palin is hardly alone in the conservative/Republican consensus in expressing her support for it.

Palin's assessment of foreign policy was competent and not embarrassing. Although she initially exhibited ignorance of the Bush Doctrine on pre-emptive strikes that has been a central pillar of U.S. foreign policy after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, she recovered quickly and then made the case clearly. Tactically, she made the mistake of trying to be friendly and informal with Gibson, who assumed a superior, professorial and critical stance toward her. She would have been far better going on the attack to rattle him.

The double-standard Gibson applied to Palin, compared with the uncritical media platforms repeatedly offered to Obama, who has had zero executive experience running anything, was especially striking. ABC and Gibson focused on Palin as if she were running right now for the presidency rather than the vice presidency. He and other media pundits, by contrast, have never asked the Democratic vice presidential nominee, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, if he has ever had to make a decision on anything.

Gibson's aggressive approach appeared to take Palin by surprise: He was clearly attempting to put her on point by presenting her as having extreme religious views. This again, however, appears to be a double-standard, as Palin grew up in the Assemblies of God, one of the largest Christian denominations in America with 16 million members, and is now a member of the Wasilla Bible Church. Even now, Obama has yet to receive any comparable grilling on his 20-year attendance in the congregation of the notoriously racist Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

The focus on Palin's faith and family, as well as the controversy over Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment in Virginia earlier this week, confirmed the swift demise of civility in the 2008 presidential campaign. This is especially ironic, as both Obama and his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, owed their victories over Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York in the Democratic primary race and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in the GOP one to their perceived inclusive tolerance, uplift and vision compared with their main opponents.

In the long sweep of U.S. political history, the worst dirt that has been thrown at either of the presidential candidates pales compared with the claims that Thomas Jefferson had fathered a child by a black slave in the 1800 campaign -- the newspaper editor who published the accusations eventually was found dead floating in a canal -- or the false claims by Republicans in the 1944 campaign that President Franklin D. Roosevelt was senile. FDR by that point was indeed a dying man, though he did not know it, but he was mentally as sharp as ever.

The context of the increasingly desperate -- and ugly -- attacks on Palin and her alleged lack of experience is that the Obama bandwagon, which swept all before it from the Iowa caucuses through the end of June, is now stalling badly and, even more worrying for the Democrats, the malaise may be spreading to the congressional races.

The latest USA Today/Gallup poll has the Democrats only 3 points up on the Republicans on the question of which party people would vote for today in their congressional district.

Indeed, the Obama campaign is now saying it is ready to take the gloves off against McCain. They rolled out a new ad Friday mocking McCain as out of touch and old-fashioned, even though it was McCain who picked a young woman as a running mate while Obama opted for an old white guy who's been sitting in the Senate for 36 years. With more than 50 days still to go until the actual election, it appears dangerously early in the campaign for the Obama camp to go negative, especially as so much of his appeal has been based on rising above the old negatives to begin with. Isn't it early in the campaign to resort to that? Is it a sign of panic?

Whatever her inexperience and other shortcomings, Palin did not fall into that trap in her ABC interview. At no point did she appear fearful or threatening. Gibson's aggressive questioning on her religion and her son's coming military service in Iraq, by contrast, runs the risks for the Democrats of strengthening support for Palin among working-class, married women, especially those with husbands or sons serving in the military.

The pattern of previous presidential election interviews and debates has always been that individuals who come across as intellectually superior, arrogant and condescending forfeit support that goes to their perceived victims. This dynamic played a crucial role in propelling George W. Bush into the White House eight years ago. It remains to be seen if Gibson's perceived arrogance and condescension will give Palin another boost. It certainly didn't help the Democrats that ABC's chief political correspondent, Stephanopoulos, who had rushed to Obama's aid only four days before, was wheeled on to discuss her interview with Gibson as soon as it was concluded.

Liberal Democrats predictably will cite the interview as evidence that Palin is not prepared for the vice presidency. Republicans will equally predictably cite it as evidence that she is. How centrist voters will react to it remains to be seen. One thing is clear: This isn't a transformational election on either side. Whoever wins, the ugly old cultural and political divisions in America remain -- and they are deeper than ever.

Well, Charlie Gibson went down a bunch of notches in my book. I have always liked him because of his homey ways, his crooked teeth and sense of humor, but finally I saw his evil side and it wasn't nice. Actually, it's more of the NBC side of hypocrisy. Let's be nice to the black man running for president who wants change for the sake of change. Let's cover up his gaffes and throw him kid glove questions, but that white woman who stands for something other than random change.

UPI and Martin Sieff, I give you kudos for posting this and exposing the double-standards and hypocrisy that grip the souls of the MSM.

While what Gibson did makes me angry, all I can do is just bring it to others' attention as unemotionally as possible because most people will see the piling on of the MSM on Palin and the kowtowing of the MSM to Nobimbo, the Chosen One, the Messiah of the Universe, the Anointed One to free mankind from all evil and its money. (Some good cold war Russian male choir singing in the background.)

Part of my email to ABC:

Little Charlie Gibson goes to Alaska to interview an extremely accomplished and extremely popular female governor. And it turns out that the biggest boob in the room was Charlies Gibson himself.

It's even worse when you see a side-by-side comparison of Gibson interview with Palin next to his with Obama.

Governor Palin handled Gibson very well. Gibson actually did Palin a favor by being so aggressive and manipulative — because it allowed Palin to sharpen her ability to deal with people like Gibson — and Biden. She will soon be able to effectively deal with with anyone — foreign enemies such as Putin and Ahmadinejad as well as domestic enemie such as Reid and Pelosi.

It’s beyond double standards. Obama is obvious junk and a junkie. It’s pre-genocidal empowerment of Obama - all for building the stinking “peace-zoo” of junkies they want a free America to turn into.

My wife & I said the very same thing. I don't think he cracked a smile at all during the interview. He kept trying, unsuccessfully, to lead her into a corner.

Does ABC and Gibson have the balls to play both interviews of Obama and Palin back to back in prime time? I thought so! Another stupid A## alert for Charlie, sitting thier,looking over his glasses like a pompus school teacher going to berate an accomplished, governor, mayor, wife, and mother. The double standard is now blatant for all America to see.

No liberal discussion of the interview should be accepted unless and until they acknowlege the parts of the interview that were edited OUT by ABC. ONLY when the FULL TRANSCIPT is analyzed should discussion begin.

They are all liberals in the MSM and have been for a long time. Any one who thinks they've ever been objective and non-partisan is a fool. As their media monopoly is breaking up, they're finally admitting who they really are. Dan Rather tried to throw the 2004 election to Kerry with the forged National Guard papers. ABC hoped to find something about Sarah that would force McCain to take her off the ticket. These people have an agenda and its promoting the interests and welfare of the Democratic Party. They are simply its public relations arm.

Callender, the guy who first published the rumors about Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings, was found dead 2 or 3 years later, but he fell off a bridge while drunk and drowned--he wasn't killed in retaliation, as some readers might conclude from reading this column.

Barack's tone has been lacking in civility for a long time, whenever he talks about Republicans or President Bush. When he was on O'Reilly the other day he accused Sean Hannity of spewing hate. But because he made some meaningless noises about wanting a new tone in politics, the media pretends he's actually adhering to a more civil standard of conduct.

How much of this was all a GENDER issue?

Do all these “journalists” support a man, no matter what?

Too bad Charlie Gibson isn’t old enough to remember Golda Meier and to have interviewed her.
She would have gelded him, and he wouldn’t even have noticed.
I also liked Charlie for all these years, despite the rancor of his co-hosts.
That warm and fuzzy feeling is gone for good now.

{{{Well, I tried to use one of the Target comment forms and it would not accept receipt of my letter. I repeatedly got a red lettered notation that I needed to put a valid email address on the form.

Yeah, except I put a valid email address there. I use the address all the time and haven’t had it called “invalid” until now.

Below is what I wrote to them, but I can’t send it.

Would another FReeper please send my words along to Target under an email address that their contact page would accept?

Please?}}}

To Whom It May Concern:

It has come to my attention that Target is a sponsor of programming on ABC network such as Charles Gibson’s recent interview with Governor Sarah Palin.

I compared his treatment of her in the interview with his earlier interview of Senator Barack Obama. If you haven’t looked into this, I urge you to do so. The two interviews are appallingly different in their tone and tenor and degree of toughness and “take no prisoners” tone.

There is astonishing bias against Sarah Palin - blatant disrespect, condescension, insult after insult - that was wholly absent from the Barack Obama interview, which was more like a love sonnet than a true piece of journalism.

Please know that I expect Target to voice objections to this scandalous behavior to ABC executives and Mr. Gibson himself.

If not, I will be sorely disappointed in Target.

Sincerely,

******* *****

Gibson’s intentionally twisted method of interviewing Palin belies the claim that Big Media is impartial...as if we already didn’t know this. No conservative has objections to the media asking candidates tough questions. Obviously the lib press has no fairness standards.
