Just a devastating takedown of the media’s treatment of Gov. Palin. Carl Cannon, neither Republican nor conservative, just completely destroys any pretense of fairness or decency on the part of his colleagues in the press.
Facts matter, the man said. But they didn’t in 2008, not when it came to Joe Biden (our guy) against Sarah Palin (odd outsider). The ladies and gentlemen of the press were more interested in her hair, her glasses, her wardrobe, he accent, her sex life, her kids’ sex lives, and her hunting habits than in whether her opponent knew anything about foreign policy, the Constitution of the United States, or the job he was running for. They still are. The relentlessly negative coverage of Palin goes on unabated — she’s the subject of a much-ballyhooed hatchet job in Vanity Fair this month — even as Biden makes minor news from time to time by continuing his penchant for gaffes, this time while serving as the second most powerful person in the federal government.
Picture: Vanity Fair, the month of the Palin story.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
