"Journalists" Distort Palin Again!



Yesterday, as I scanned the various headlines related to Alaska Governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, I couldn't help but be aghast at the obvious attempts by the media to distort everything she says and does.

One case in point is the Associated Press. The headline they used in their story about Palin's interview with ABC's Charlie Gibson made it appear that she was open to war with Russia. When you read her remarks, that wasn't what she said at all. She clearly stated that if Georgia and Ukraine were NATO members, then the United States would be obligated to defend them as is required in the NATO charter. An attack on one is an attack on all.

But no, they had to sensationalize and blatantly mislead people. It's a bit like the "child and daisy" ad that the Democrats used against Barry Goldwater in 1964. Remember, the one with the concluding mushroom cloud? Only this time, instead of the Democrats doing it, the media is doing it.

Oh, wait. Most of the so-called "mainstream" media are liberal Democrats. Silly me. What am I thinking?

There are other examples I could cite, but I'm going to have to stop. You know, blood pressure.
