Daily Commentary – Friday, November 20th, 2009 – The Associated Press Devotes 11 reporters to Fact Check Palin’s Book … Liberal Media Bias
- They assigned 11 reporters to fact check “Going Rogue” cover to cover, prompting some comments from Palin and other conservative commentators. Sarahcuda fires back …
Why is the LEFT and the MSM so afraid of Sarah Palin? Sarah Palin may be “Going Rogue,” the MSM is going mental with SPDS.
The reaction from liberals and the MSM to Sarah Palin’s new book just proves what many have said all along and all have noticed since Palin came on the scene as McCain’s VP candidate. Palin is treated unfairly and like no other politician. The attention that she received from the LEFT and the media, one would think that she was Bin Laden. A year removed from the campaign and once again America sees the mistreatment and over the top treatment of Sarah Palin. Love her or hate her, it is irrelevant.
Imagine, just imagine is the MSM had spent as much time vetting Barack Hussein Obama instead of worshiping at the alter of The Obamamessiah … do you really think he ever would have been elected if Obama was reported to be prior to the election what he is today? Not a chance.
Is the MSM bias … You betcha!
AP shows it’s liberal media bias by devoting 11 reporters to fact check Sarah Palin’s new book “Going Rogue: while they never did such a thing regarding any book written by Barack Obama, Joe Biden or Al Gore. So while AP closes bureaus and lay off staff and cut costs by 10%, they can find 11 reporters to hand one specific task?
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.” [no liberal bias here calling it a manifesto].
Palin quickly hit back on a Facebook post titled “Really? Still Making Things Up?”
“Imagine that,” the post read. “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.”
It is a sad and pathetic state of our liberal bias and state run media as Sarahcuda was quoted as saying, “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, …”
What might be more comical is that some are saying that Going Rogue is a gold mine. Of course it is. News flash to the liberal and political elites … many people associate with Sarah Palin. She is of, by and for the people. Some are worried that she is sucking the oxygen out of the room with her book and book tour. One would think that Obama, Pelosi and Reid would love this so that their socialist antics are not on display.
Palin has been mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2012, along with a host of other Republicans. Among self-identified Republicans in the survey, Palin gets the highest favorable ratings (70 percent) amid a group of other possible contenders for the GOP nomination, including Mike Huckabee (63 percent), Mitt Romney (60 percent) and Newt Gingrich (58 percent). Palin’s favorable score among all voters is 47 percent, up nine percentage points over last July’s reading of 38 percent.
Be very careful liberals, Democrats and MSM of how you play your hand as the backlash might just be tenfold of your personal and petty attacks against Sarah Palin and her family. You had your chance to destroy her and failed. American and America’s have a much different view these days of you media liberal bias and hateful press … Obama is not the “Golden child” any more and “We the People” want change and it ain’t Barack Hussein Obama.
UPDATE I: Sneak peak of Sarah Palin’s interview with Bill O’Reilly scheduled for Friday night via The Gateway Pundit.
