Media’s Sick Palin Obsession

19 11 2009

A good short definition of the mentally ill is someone who acts irrationally, contrary and even injurious to his/her own wellbeing.

By that definition, the Associated Press is severely neurotic.

Even before Sarah Palin’s autobiography, Going Rogue, went on sale, the AP found a copy before its release date and assigned 11 people to fact check all 432 pages — at a time when newspaper after newspaper went kaput, while the remaining ones are on life support.

The AP claims Palin misstated her record with regard to travel expenses and taxpayer-funded bailouts, using statements widely reported elsewhere. But it also speculated into Palin’s motives for writing “Going Rogue: An American Life,” stating as fact that the book “has all the characteristics of a pre-campaign manifesto.”

Palin quickly hit back on a Facebook post titled “Really? Still Making Things Up?” Palin rightly observed: “Imagine that, 11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to ‘fact check’ what’s going on with Sheik Mohammed’s trial, Pelosi’s health care takeover costs, Hasan’s associations, etc. Amazing.”

AP spokesman Paul Colford refused to say if similar number of journalists were assigned to review other political books, or if Palin has been treated differently.

But the inconvenient truth is that AP did not review for accuracy recent books by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, then-Sen. Joe Biden, either book by Barack Obama released before he was president or autobiographies by Bill or Hillary Clinton. The AP did more traditional news stories on those books. 

We can only conclude that AP is obsessed with Sarah. An irrational obsession, alas, is a mental disorder!

P.D.S. lives on. At least Sarah’s not muzzled anymore and can tell the creeps where to get off! We watched her on Hannity last night, and she’s going to be on O’Reilly tonight. I read somewhere this morning that Sarah gave the Oprah show its highest ratings in two years. What does THAT tell you? Sarah said she refused to go on Letterman because she didn’t want to increase his ratings. LOL

You GO, Sarah!!

I love this picture of Sarah!

Most politicians would run away if someone suggested they take a picture with them holding a firearm like this. The Constitutional right to own firearms will save this country from tyranny in the 21st century.

Sarah drives them crazy – wonderful! Heard that all the media outlets have been showing up at her book signings…local news, MSNBC, CNN, ET, etc. etc.

Jeez, you’d think some of those journalists at AP could do their real jobs and follow up with James and Hannah re: ACORN. They released another video tonight on Hannity and Andrew openly challenged Holder to investigate – bring it on!
