American Pravda Keeps Going After Palin

Posted by Shane Vander Hart on November 13, 2009

APabsolutelyPathetic Associated Press

After botching initial coverage of Governor Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue: An American Life, and having one of their mistakes regarding a legal bill go viral.  They keep at it.  Today there is blatant editorializing in their article that was up at the Anchorage Daily News site:

NEW YORK — Sarah Palin’s new memoir describes heart-wrenching anguish about her teen daughter’s pregnancy playing out before a national audience. But the 413-page tome doesn’t contain a single reference to the father of her grandson, soon-to-be Playgirl model Levi Johnston.

In "Going Rogue," which will be released Tuesday, Palin also laments about everyone in her entourage being forced to wear fancy clothes she couldn’t afford — preferring simpler, cheaper garb. But it’s as if Johnston, who was among those hastily spiffed up to appear at the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., had never left Wasilla.

The tactic does appear to have merit; Johnston, who has sparred repeatedly with his former mother-in-law-to-be, continues to warn that she should leave him alone, or he might dish some serious dirt that "will hurt her." (emphasis mine)

It appears to have merit?  Yes, after reports about what was said during her Oprah interview, after receiving his “Fleshbot award” in New York for his upcoming Playgirl spread he reiterated this.  Let that sink in for a moment.

Perhaps the better answer is that she doesn’t want to destroy the father of her grandson (who is doing a good job of that all on his own).  Perhaps she’s doing that for the benefit of her grandson who may later on read the book.  Perhaps she doesn’t want to rehash all of the stupid things this kid has done or said after the break-up.  This kid has lost all credibility and most on the left see that he is a complete liar, but in the AP’s mind, it has merit.  Oh brother.  If he had something on her we can be sure it would have been discovered by now.

I really didn’t want to blog on this kid again, thanks AP.

They are in full-blown attack mode “fact-checking” her book.  And their fact-checking needs fact-checking.  Did they ever do this with President Obama’s books?  How about the late Senator Ted Kennedy’s memoir?  Then sources (we have sources here!) say this book is policy-lite.  But Rush predicted the tactic we see being used:

I talked to her yesterday, I’ve got the book, I have it right over there and I’ve had a chance, I just got it a couple days ago, three days ago, and I’ve had a chance to go through it, and I made a prediction to her when I talked to her yesterday.  I said, "You’ve got enough in here that people who get hold of this, like the AP or any of the State-Controlled Media, they’re gonna focus on the soap opera aspects of your book, and they’re going to ignore what is truly one of the most substantive policy books I’ve read."  

This woman, Governor Palin, clearly is jazzed by policy, particularly environmental policy and energy policy, as well as taxes and so forth.  I talked to her about the future of the Republican Party, what she thought about New York-23, how she deals with the character assassination, not just of herself, but of her entire family.

Now it is a memoir, it isn’t going to be all policy and become a wonkish tome, but to say it doesn’t tackle any policy issues at all doesn’t wash.  Especially if you’ve been reading her Facebook notes of late.

Obviously this is the type of “news” organization that the White House likes, but if you’re wondering about her book, keep your powder dry, you can read it yourself this Tuesday.
