Palin Falsely Accuses Press “Moles” Of “Sneak[ing]” In To Hear Her Speech
Paranoia runs deep. In keeping with her “The Press Hates Me” theme, Sarah Palin said the press “sneaked” into a speech she gave in Missoula, Montana. Sherry Devlin, editor of the Missoulian, is none too happy about the accusation.
Contrary to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s warning to the standing-room-only crowd at this afternoon’s Teen Challenge fundraiser in Missoula, the media did not “sneak in” to her speech. We were not there as “moles,” in her words.
Third: I only mention this because that sort of talk – “Be careful. There may be some media that sneaked into the room.” – is intended to create distrust of the professional journalists in this city and all across the country who take their jobs very seriously and work hard to accurately and fairly report the news.
Devlin went on to explain the ordered process by which her newspaper covered the event. Sarah Jones at PoliticsUSA presents a brief history of Palin’s run-ins with the press, including this latest episode. The national media has played along this far, but there are cracks in the amour. The Missoulian learned what the local Alaska press knew all along.Click here for reuse options!
