Sarah Palin Whines That The Media Didn’t Vet Obama; Problem Is McCain Didn’t Vet HER
As Hillary Busis at Mediaite points out, Sarah Palin criticizing the media is another day at the office. On Alaska’s Bob and Mark morning show, Palin complains that the media did a lousy job vetting Barack Obama. Yeah, we hardly knew anything about him other than how the community organizer hung out with terrorist Bill Ayers and worshiped at a church run by a guy who hates America. Palin rambles on, defending a film that attacks Obama and the media, and defends her.
“My degree was in communications, and having learned way back when, in college, the who what when where and why of journalism, things have certainly evolved and devolved into a sad state of affairs with mainstream media reporting. We know that Obama wasn’t vetted through the campaign, and now some things are coming home to roost, if you will, with his experience and his associations. And that ultimately harms our republic, when a candidate isn’t vetted by the media, that cornerstone of our democracy. So you’re right—it’s not about me. And whether you like my politics or not, you can push all that aside and just pay attention to what the message is in this documentary, and that is that things have got to change for the better in the state of journalism. Otherwise, it could be part of a demise of our democracy if that cornerstone erodes.”
So, if we only knew more about President Obama before electing him, and if only the liberal media had been fair to poor Sarah Palin, democracy would be in much better shape. If only John McCain knew about Sarah Palin before putting her on the ticket, he would have received more votes.Click here for reuse options!
