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.

However, the fact of the matter is that Palin’s new book sales are through the roof and an even greater threat to Democrats is that her favorable ratings are going up as well. RUT-ROH!

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.

      As I have stated in a previous post, Oprah afforded Sarah Palin the respect that is due her. Regardless of her politics, it seems that the woman if fair.

      This also led to her highest ratings in two years, walloping other high profile names. Seems that the liberals can’t spin this one off so they let slip the dogs of war with 11(gotta be more) “researchers” concerning Sarah palin’s book.

      All they will find is that people are reading it avidly and grasping what is written in its pages.

      Go, Sarah. The polls could dwindle to zero percent, it doesn’t make a difference as it is all bogus concerning her anyway. The people of America are picking up on her spirit as she is a driving force of change and fresh air in this country. They identify with so much of her common sense thoughts such as the terrorist trials, healthcare and the terrorist attack at Fort Hood, that there is more concern about her now than when she was a VP candidate.

      2010 and 2012 doesn’t look so far away anymore, does it?

      Yes as a Canadian I can clearly tell that Msn or nbc does not like Sarah Palin,but at the same time I dont think they make Obama into a “Golden child” of salvation with all due respect to the writer.I dont like her stand on Hunting in Alaska,I dont think I even like listing to her voice,but its up to you Americans shes all yours…good luck with that.
      SM: With all due respect, yes the MSM did prop up Barack Obama. If they had done what they do to all politicians, BO would never have been elected. He would have been crushed by Hillary and shown to be the weak, ineffective, novice, Socialist that he really was.

      Even the folks in the media admit that they voted and carried his water. They never questioned him on Ayers, Wright, Acorn, etc.

      Was it not MSNBC’s Chrissy Matthews that said he got a tinle up his leg when Obama spoke? There is some real objective journalism.

      If it were not for the state run media, there is no way Obama would be President. Now the cat is out of the bag and the MSM is having a devil of a time spinning for Obama and making excuses when We all know better.

      See I dont know how you can write that “I mean the original article” without alienating and insulting alot of people that voted Dem. Your basically saying a mass of stupid people were brainwashed by a state run media,so the government could stick a puppet in there..thats alot of hopes and dreams crushed, LOL yes I get the whole free speach thing, that allowed Chrissy Matthews to say such a creepy thing.

    4. buster on November 20th, 2009 11:26 am

      Sarah Palin is a HOTTIE !!!!!!!

    5. Wolf on November 20th, 2009 1:28 pm

      What about the real “Objective” journalism going on at Fox lately….Now that’s twice in one month they’ve been caught spreading lies. Hannity and Beck are Wacks..

    6. Rusty Bridges on November 20th, 2009 1:50 pm

      Haley, as a canadien you must not get to see a lot of U.S. media.

      (eyes rolling)

    7. R.L.Haley on November 20th, 2009 2:33 pm

      Thats all we get, plus living in a bordertown.

      (throws hair back)

    8. super dave on November 20th, 2009 3:12 pm

      without his paid media obama would never have never made the vetting process. millions spent on media payoffs as well as the fradulent acorn organization signing up birds, cats, dogs, the dallas cowboy lineup, dead people. the fraud went way past what has ever been witnessed. obama was simply a token for the black vote.
      oh, and also a million spent by obama to hide his identity.

      I’m also a Canadian, but I’m not living in a bordertown. I live in the heartland of the U.S., where it’s still very cold in the winter. No thanks to Al Gore.

      If I might say to my compatriate, the American lame stream media has coddled Obama from his candidacy to his presidency. The way the CBC coddles it’s Liberal (Democratic) candidates.

      As Obama tries to turn the US into Canada, that is, a socialist ‘paradise’, Americans are resisting. Canadians are used to government intrusion and control, exorbinante taxation for mediocre services. Americans are not. This is the land of opportunity. I know that personally. Obama is trying to take that away.

      As for Sarah Palin, I have yet to see her nose pressed up against a teleprompter to be able to express an idea. I think she knows the difference between and window and a door, and if she prefers to hunt for her food, instead of buying it neatly packaged from the grocery store, then so be it.

      If you want to wish the US and Americans luck, do it now. Now is when it’s needed the most.

      I typed a response. Why can’t I see it?

      SM: For some reason it went to the spam folder. I found it and pulled it out :-) (klaasend)

      I am also a Canuck and … my comments seem to often end up in that Spam file. Hmmmm LOL

      I wish Canada had a Sarah Palin. I am so sick of politically correct politicians. Give me Sarah Palin’s common sense anyday.

      Good Night All

      I guess for the moment democratic rights in regards to the media, speech and assembly has prevailed.
