Palin attacks media... Is it Sexism? (NO YOU IDIOTS IT'S LIBERALISM)
MSN.com ^ | 01/09/09 | Howard Kurtz

Posted on 01/09/2009 9:31:02 AM PST by GauchoUSA

WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin, still smarting over coverage of her vice presidential run, calls the media's reporting on her family "very scary" and says there may be "a class issue" that explains the more sympathetic treatment of Caroline Kennedy.

The Alaska governor also took a swipe at Katie Couric over the CBS interview in which Palin stumbled badly, saying: "Katie, you're not the center of everyone's universe."

“Katie, you’re not the center of everyone’s universe.”

Just for that quote alone, she has my vote in perpetuity.

"Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan — who is hardly anonymous — has questioned why Palin would not release medical records to prove she is the boy's mother, ...."

Good grief! Has Obama released medical records to prove he's the father of his children? Heck, he hasn't even released any records proving where he was born.

Juan McVain and the RINOpublican party bungled Sarah Palin’s interaction with the media. Sarah was much less to blame, let's hope she's learned a lot.

I don't think that this has anything to do with us. This is simply a continuation of the MSM's absolute terror where Palin is involved.

The left already senses that 0 is going to flop huge, and they also know that Palin was the reason that McCain was even competitive in the election. Faced with this, the MSM knows that it absolutely must destroy Palin. It won't happen, but I suspect that we're in for a ton of this chit in the foreseeable future.

The media is stuck on stupid, and their one-track-mind thinking will always lead them to bash their biggest perceived threat.

Bashing is always the response of the media when they have no alternatives; when they have no truths to build on, bashing with lies and innuendo is their schtick. It's what they do.

So, she plowed into Katy Couric, big deal. It really doesn't matter because Sarah is getting a lot more TV exposure than Katy ever has - on either of her network gigs. In fact, if I am not mistaken, her interview with Sarah brought her the highest ratings ever since she has been an anchorperson.

Katy - and her minions - can't face the fact that less and less of the population are listening to them; obviously liberals never read "The Boy Who Cried Wolf".

Any honest and serious investigation of the current mess we're in can be traced directly back to liberals and their socialist policies.

It's just my opinion, but I will never believe obama won the election honestly...there was just too much crap going on with ACORN and early voting, drive-by voting, and double voting. But, I don't want to be like the talk show plant callers who are still whining about Bush/Gore in 2000...it's over.

Bottom line, Palin is more popular than Couric, she is also smarter, more experienced...and yes, even better looking. And, we will never have to watch Sarah have a colonoscopy on TV.

Does anyone get a tickle of a feeling that Palin is either not 100% truthful or hears people wrong? Now I’m fully aware of the press spin on things but...

Is there a single picture of Palin dressing up as Tina Fey for Halloween? I’d feel better if there were. She’s has said it several times. The thing about the bridge to nowhere wasn’t exactly as she repeatedly said. She says Couric said, “What do you guys do up there?” (her point is understood but it’s in dispute that question was ever asked). And something’s still weird about the clothes....reports that she took them home and said she hadn’t sorted them all out? What really happened in that interview about Africa being a country? This came from republicans. Politicians are liars. Nothing new there. I don’t think she should be continued to be held up like a queen of the republicans - I’m not breaking on her like Peggy Noonan believe me...

I just don’t want her being the symbol of the future only to have an embarrassment later.

The hatchet job that the DBM did and is STILL doing on Governor Palin and her family crossed a line.

Had Gov. Palin been African-American and faced the same type of treatment, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would have excoriated them for their blatant racism. But, since the governor is a self-made conservative white woman, she was and is considered fair game.

If we are going to stop the march of liberalism, it is only going to happen by conservatives cancelling their subscription to every newspaper and periodical in America. Then, we stop watching the DBM “news” broadcasts and make their ratings plummet more.

Public lynchings such as those performed by the DBM on Gov. Palin cannot be tolerated. We cannot afford to be a voice of silence any longer.

Oh goodness... I'm not suggesting that you are piling on her... but you sure are not in the know here.

a)Tina Fey dressed up as Palin. In turn Palin said she dresses as Fey. She wouldn't have to dress up actually, since she imitates Fey imitating her. It's a joke on their supposed similarity... No one was suggesting Palin really "dressed up". What would that look like? A scar?

b)She says Couric said, “What do you guys do up there?”

No. Palin didn't claim that. She said she understood the question that way and responded accordingly. She was never suggesting that Couric asked this exact question.

c)This Africa thing is old debunked crap. That FOX guy Cameron claimed that anonymous McCain staffers told this to him. Palin called them out. All McCain staffers who might have done it denied the charge. It was a bullsh*t rumor to trash Palin. No basis or source. Just like the "Palin dressed in a bathrobe" nonsense.

c)You should spend more time on Freerepublic and less time listening to the lies on the mainstream media... we debunk their crap.

Having run this through my Liberal Reporting Correction Tool™® , this is the result:

WASHINGTON - Sarah Palin, still smarting over the most popular conservative politician after coverage of her vice presidential run, calls accurately describes the media's heavily biased and manipulated reporting on her family as "very scary" and says there may be "a class issue" that explains the more sympathetic treatment of Caroline Kennedy.

The Alaska governor also took a swipe at exposed the truth about Katie Couric over the CBS interview in which Palin stumbled badly made a point clearly, saying: "Katie, you're not the center of everyone's universe."

You know there's been some rumors going around FR about you. The way I understand it somebody somewhere said that you said or wrote something that made you look less than informed. I think you mixed up Mars and the moon. Maybe it wasn't you. It could have been somebody doing an impersonation of you. But still, it sure doesn't look good. Or maybe it was something about your kid's trashy behavior. I'd like to believe you're not some idiot troll with an embarrassing family, but the people informing me of these things really have no reason to make anything up. Anyway, could you please document for me how none of this stuff is true so I can feel better about you?

Asked by Ziegler how she would have fared as Barack Obama's running mate, Palin accused the press of ideological "hypocrisy," saying: "I think they would have loved me as a candidate. . . . You would have seen an absolutely different and . . . much prettier profile of Sarah Palin and the Palin family and my administration."

Sarah definitely gets it.

On his Web site, Ziegler says that when Palin saw a picture of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, "she literally let out a shriek and, pointing to his photograph, declared, 'THAT guy is EVIL!' "

Oh my. I love this plain-spoken, unaffected lady. You go, Sarah!

Can you imagine what the media would have done if they had her on video saying that or that there were 57 states? I wonder what the media would have done if they had Obama on video claiming we had 57 states. Surely, they would make a big deal about him being flat out stupid and ignorant. Right?

a. Duh. I get all that...the scar comment is very funny though! Since she was making a joke and repeated the same joke at least 5 times I heard her say it, then she should chuckle, laugh or perhaps say it was a joke rather than repeatedly saying that everyone told her that she looked like Fey so she dressed up like her.

b. TODAY 1/9 AP:”Palin singled out the Couric interview as condescending, particularly a question about what she reads and, according to the governor, “What do you guys do up there?” In fact, Couric never asked that question but did press, unsuccessfully, for the governor to state specific newspapers she read, which Palin never answered fully. (personally, it was condescending and but Palin blew it, let’s be honest).

c. I saw it live when Cameron “broke” it. He said it was reported to him directly but he would not disclose by whom. He was asked about his experience covering the campaign after it was over and was talking about a lot of tension. Maybe Cameron is a liberal with an agenda. I don’t know. I wrote Palin an email that day at the gov’s office in Alaska asking her to stick up for herself. Of course the McCain staff people denied it because they’d be ruined. Everyone went under the rocks when she went to expose them personally for betraying the party...they hid because they cared about their future not necessarily because it wasn’t true. I think they were total cowards, maybe twisted it, but I don’t think it was totally false. I heard SP explaining around it ...to the effect of -”If I said something trying to clarify a question, I may have but I don’t really remember that...”

That’s a great reply, Minn. I hear you, really. I’m not asking her to prove a negative. I’m talking about things I’ve heard her say and honestly that Couric interview scared me about her. I hope she gets better at the whole game and kicks some butt but she needs to get smarter about how to talk to the media. Remember the damn phillysteak dive where she said the college kid’s Pakistan question was “gotcha”...she answered it! OK, what kind of bozos did she have screening her calls when the DJ’s from Canada called? This is ALL a reflection on her.

I’m sorry if this is hard for us to hear but is this not true? I was cheering literally as she spoke at the convention...I really wanted her to be as good as she seemed that night.

I know...but Obama is history...it’s over...the double standard no one cared about will be back!!! Biden was the worst of all but no one cared. SP is a very accomplished woman. An amazing woman. And, she is polarizing like no one else...the media will have a microscope on her and it stinks but that is why she must be completely honest, no more bridge crud, more serious/professional in her words, intelligent and transparent. I don’t care how ‘quick a study’ she is. I want her to be smarter than Katie flippin Couric. If not, she will not be taken seriously by enough people (needed to win). I also don’t need to see her take Alec Baldwin’s ‘jokes’ on SNL. Mishandled indeed.

After Paulson said we were going to have a worldwide meltdown if they didn’t urgently get the money for his intended purpose, then he got the money and didn’t use it for that...I don’t believe a single politician right now.

a) If you don’t get Palin’s humor... too bad, but not her fault. I never expected her to show up as Fey. Shrugs.

b)Why do you cite the AP as a source? For goodness sake... they are the worst of all biased sources. You apparently didn’t watch the Ziegler interview. Palin DID name specific papers and she did NOT suggest that Couric asked her verbatim “what do you guys do up there?”, but thought that this was the sense of her question. The AP is reporting crap.

c) Whatever my dear. Cameron (who IS a lib with an agenda) giddily citing one anonymous source without proof is apparently good enough for you to believe it to be “true”. It was denied by the involved... so what’s your “proof”? Is it the weight of the “accusation” that matters here? Come on... you don’t really think she doesn’t know what Africa is. Who are you kidding?

a. “She thought it (Fey impersonation) was quite funny, particularly because she once dressed up as Tina Fey for Halloween,” her spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt said.

HANNITY: Has anyone ever said that before? There’s a similarity… PALIN: They’ve been saying that for years up in Alaska. In fact, I dressed up as Tina Fey once for Halloween. We’ve been doing that before Tina Fey’s being doing that.”

Google this...I’m not the only person who didn’t take it as a joke.

b. I watched the segment and understand it was an interpretation of the question. She took it as patronizing, others took it as, “who is this person?” since she was an unknown. It was the first interview she gave (campaign idiots fault). I hate Katie Couric but she’s not the first reporter to have asked a candidate “What do you read?” Maybe because the rest of the interview was going badly SP was defensive. Whatever. The hole is deep enough, they need to put the shovel down. It was a disaster interview (editing included) but she is fully responsible for her answers and interpretation of questions.

c. Honestly,I do not know Cameron is a lib. He is giddy though sometimes, good word for him. How do you know? I’ve watched him for years. Of course it crossed my mind that he was a reporter and how awful the media is, but it was after the campaign and my impression was he did not take it on the record during the campaign. I did not know why he didn’t but I was glad he didn’t. Why wait til it was over? Nothing was at stake. I relied on what Cameron said because I’ve never heard him say anything I’ve found in error. He seemed credible to me because he spoke to the staff face to face nearly every day. I don’t know what SP knows and no one really does. I was glad when she addressed it but was left uneasy with her answer after...she should have immediately said it was ridiculous but she waited and gave a convoluted answer and asked the source to come out instead.

Has Fox retracted it?

Old debunked crap? I’ve searched and can’t find any retraction by Fox or Cameron...help me out if I’ve missed it. There was the Eisenstadt false claim of responsibility as the source which was debunked, but the “veracity of the report is not in question” - FoxNews http://www.foxnews.com/wires/2008Nov12/0,4670,PalinHoax,00.html

I hope it was a lie by someone with an agenda but I will keep digging because I want to be right...even if the truth is not what I want to hear.

I’ve also been searching for any accusations of Cameron being a liberal and all I can find are accusations of him being pro-Bush and showing conservative bias.

Carl Cameron is not a conservative, he is a smarmy opportunist “moderate” (whatever this is) ala Joe Scarborough (who was a Republican congressman). They are spineless cowards who bash real conservatives to placate liberals. They hate and fear Palin, and having been supportive of Bush is not a conservative litmus test.

Regardless of whatever political stance, Cameron’s claim that Palin doesn’t know what Africa is, is invalid. Cameron claims to have it from a McCain staffer (which they denied). Why can’t CAMERON come forward and name his source? The use of unsubstantiated, sourceless claims will get redmarked in any college paper. But I guess as long as it’s against Palin, everything goes. It’s not McCain staffers that are the cowards... they rallied to Palin’s defense. Cameron is the coward. Either disclose your “source” (which could be anyone, even from the Democrats) or shut up. Cameron did not come forward, so we can call BS on him.

If you are not satisfied with it, and prefer to believe unsourced anonymous claims and Cameron’s invalid reporting, it’s maybe because you want to believe it.

Everyone of the issues that you raised have been openly vetted. The Africa as a country thing was a lie made up by a liberal blogger who sent the story to Carl Cameron and another reporter, who fell for the whole story. Carl Cameron was made to look like a complete fool for not vetting the story, himself. The other guy was a liberal, so , it didn’t matter.

There is nothing weird about the clothes. No one is asking Michelle Obama to give back the designer clothes that she accepted before the tape was put on her mouth and she was locked away in a hotel room. It was only after she re-appeared that she started wearing off the rack clothes.
I’m pretty sure that the Tina Fey for Halloween line, was a joke.

I guess that you haven’t been paying attention.

11/12/2008 Fox news reports that Cameron was not the victim of a hoax but that MSNBC and NY Times were. Fox stands by the story to this day as far as I can find.

The liberal blogger I think you are referring to, Eisenstadt, in Nov. published that he was the source of the Africa thing and said he made it all up. The liberal media flew with it and made Cameron look bad. FOX quickly reported that Eisenstadt wasn’t the source forcing MSNBC and NY Times to retract their claims and admit THEY didn’t vet Eisenstadt.

So what about the Africa claim? Per Fox website, “The hoax was limited to the identity of the source in the story about Palin _ not the Fox News story itself. While Palin has denied that she mistook Africa for a country, the veracity of that report was not put in question by the revelation that Eisenstadt is a phony”

Here is the last link.

Anything retracting the story by Fox? Not that I can find. Cameron and Fox stand by it.

I’ve given enough comment on the Fey thing

Some conservatives are wearing earplugs about any criticism of SP.

Any worthwile comment on my post No.41? Or is it all you have to say?

I haven't heard you critizising her. All you do is repeat liberal talking points and media mantras. From your comments on AP, Fox and Cameron one can glance an discomforting trust you still put in the MSM.

BTW a troll doesn't have to be liberal. There are also trolls on the right here who shill for their favorite candidate.

Oh then it must be true. It's on snopes and factcheck./s

Sure... because they are too cowardly to admit they were also victims of the hoax. "Standing by the story" is worthless if Cameron won't disclose his source. If the source is valid, Cameron has to disclose it. Otherwise it's just amateurish grandstanding. Again you seem to take every word by Cameron and Fox for gospel.

The liberal media flew with it and made Cameron look bad.

There is one MSM and Cameron is part of it. He is not the "victim" of the liberal media you paint him to be. What made him look bad was his own reckless and amateurish reporting.

Anything retracting the story by Fox? Not that I can find. Cameron and Fox stand by it.

The Obama camp also stand by their lies. Yet they won't disclose dozens of documents on Obama. I guess their word is good enough for you. Only because they stand by a lie, doesn't make it true. Palin and McCain's staff called it absurd and offered counter evidence (Palin's knowledge about Darfur i.e.). Yet Cameron standing by his claim, while not disclosing his "source" is good enough for you.

Figures. You believe it, because you want it to be true. Meh.

Just answer me one question: Why hasn't Cameron disclosed his source?

Yes on 41, see the post I just made. The links you gave were honestly not news to me except one. I’ve heard the people who were not present at the prepping acting as character witnesses and I was glad they did. Did you read the last one? It quotes a person who says they were there, said she called it a country and considered it a “human mistake” - fine...but that is not the story is it?

I’m sorry we don’t agree but nevertheless we are still on the same team and it is not productive for conservatives to name call other conservatives. I am conservative first.

For the record, I was a Romney supporter. I wasn’t thrilled about McCain and Palin gave me hope. I’m trying not to criticize - I’m trying to bring questions I have into an intellectual group.
