The reason for the news media's panic is clear
"We need to throw every last molecule of s**t we've got at McCain and Palin," said a
poster at the Democratic Underground. "Demonize them. Dehumanize them."
Panic brings out the ugliness in ugly people. And ugliness of this sort is not
restricted to moonbat bloggers.
"In the press galleries at the convention, journalists wrinkled their noses in
disgust when Piper, Ms. Palin's youngest daughter, was filmed kitty-licking her baby
brother's hair in place," wrote David Carr in the New York Times Sunday.
How black must your soul be for you to be "disgusted" by a six-year-old girl who is
behaving lovingly toward her baby brother?
News organizations have flooded Alaska with investigative reporters, hoping to dig
up something anything bad to say about Sarah Palin. As mayor of Wasilla in
1996, did she try to ban from the public library books that weren't published until
The sewer that is the left-wing blogosphere pumps its bilge directly into the
"mainstream" media. "People say yes, she looks good in a bikini clutching an AK-47,
but is she equipped to run the country?" asked CNN reporter Lola Ogunnaike,
referring, as if it were true, to a crude photoshop on left wing blogs that imposed
Ms. Palin's face on someone else's body.
Sarah Palin's approval rating in Alaska last month was 81.6 percent. That means for
every person who doesn't like Ms. Palin, there are four who do. But reporters seem
only to quote her political enemies, without identifying them as such.
Media honchos say they're just doing due diligence.
"Intense, independent scrutiny by the Times and the rest of the news media of
Palin's background, character and record was inevitable and right," declared Clark
Hoyt, the "public editor" of the New York Times.
But their hypocrisy is so pronounced the hicks from the sticks have noticed. Among
other things, the media moguls expect us to believe:
The reason for the news media's panic is clear. The Sarah Palin phenomenon has
turned this race around. John McCain is now leading or tied in all major polls.
But the news media's flagrant bias may cost journalists more than a loss for the
candidate they're stacking the deck for.
Last week the gossip magazine Us Weekly, owned by Obama supporter Jann Wenner,
featured on its cover an unflattering photo of Ms. Palin (which, I imagine, took
some effort to find), and the headline: "Babies, Lies, and Scandals."
The lies were what others were saying about Gov. Palin, Us senior editor admitted to
Megyn Kelly (alas, no relation) of Fox News.
So a bottom feeding tabloid has smeared a Republican. What's news about that?
The consequences. "Us Weekly...is said to have lost thousands of subscribers in
just the first 24 hours following the printing of the issue," reported MSNBC
entertainment writer Courtney Hazlett Friday.
These are tough times for journalists. Layoffs are the rule at newspapers
throughout the land. Flagrant bias is likely to be bad for business for more than
just Us Weekly.
