Susannah Fleetwood On Why the Left is Fleeing Vanity Fair Hit Piece

Posted by Adrienne Ross on September 8, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com


News Real Blog’s Susannah Fleetwood drops the dime on why she thinks even the Left is avoiding the Vanity Fair hit piece on Governor Palin.

She writes:

So, why the mad dash away from this column by the leftist elites? It’s bashing Sarah Palin, so one would think that they would love it. Well, without much ado and mincing any words, I can tell you the four major reasons why so-called liberals can’t seem to distance themselves from this column fast enough.

The points include such things as Mr. Gross’ poor writing, use of anonymous sources, blatant sexism, and verifiable inaccuracies. Add to this his strange obsession with Governor Palin’s underwear, and there’s no small wonder even Palin Derangement Syndrome sufferers don’t want anything to do with this.

Fleetwood ends the article with this:

So, in conclusion, Michael Gross not only not only [sic] made a flaming ass out of himself, but he also totally humiliated the so-called liberal mainstream media. He managed to bring every caricature of an elitist, egotistical, out of touch, so-called liberal journalist to life. And the worst part was that he was incredibly sloppy with many of the facts–which in turn, discredits his entire piece. Credible leftist/progressive journalists and columnists can’t flee from his disaster of a column fast enough–and I don’t blame them.

However, sad to say, this isn’t the first time that Vanity Fair has written an outrageous, totally unsourced hit piece on a politician. During the 2008 campaign Todd Purdum wrote a totally unsourced hit piece in Vanity Fair about Bill Clinton, implying that he was openly dating while campaigning for Hillary in South Carolina. (Whatever you may think of Bill Clinton, I live in SC. If Bill Clinton was going out publicly clubbing and picking up women, someone, somewhere would have seen him. SC is a small state.) Furthermore, Purdum then wrote a totally unsourced hit piece on Sarah Palin a year later. Surprise, surprise. (Has anyone ever noticed that Vanity Fair has never written an unsourced hit piece on Barack Obama?)

But now, Vanity Fair’s chickens have come home to roost. They have gotten away with writing unsourced hit pieces for so long, that they got over-confident. This time, they gave Michael Gross carte blanche to pretty much write what ever he damn well pleased–muddled facts, sexism, stalkers, underwear and all. To tell the truth, I’m not at all surprised that some columnist, somewhere, would write something like this; however, I am surprised that any editor would actually go through with publishing it. Basically, Vanity Fair unintentionally gave Michael Gross just enough rope to hang himself, and Vanity Fair’s credibility in the process. Michael Gross’ column should serve as a cautionary tale for progressive journalists everywhere. Don’t let your love of all things Obama and your hatred of Sarah Palin get the best of you–or you will wind up proving Sarah Palin correct about the “lamestream media”.

Koran Burning Is Insensitive, Unnecessary; Pastor Jones,…

Posted by Ron Devito on September 8, 2010

Governor Palin today posted on Facebook:

Book burning is antithetical to American ideals. People have a constitutional right to burn a Koran if they want to, but doing so is insensitive and an unnecessary provocation – much like building a mosque at Ground Zero.

I would hope that Pastor Terry Jones and his supporters will consider the ramifications of their planned book-burning event. It will feed the fire of caustic rhetoric and appear as nothing more than mean-spirited religious intolerance. Don’t feed that fire. If your ultimate point is to prove that the Christian teachings of mercy, justice, freedom, and equality provide the foundation on which our country stands, then your tactic to prove this point is totally counter-productive.

Our nation was founded in part by those fleeing religious persecution. Freedom of religion is integral to our charters of liberty. We don’t need to agree with each other on theological matters, but tolerating each other without unnecessarily provoking strife is how we ensure a civil society. In this as in all things, we should remember the Golden Rule. Isn’t that what the Ground Zero mosque debate has been about?

Happy Rosh Hashanah 5771 from SPWB!

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 8, 2010

 

According to the Hebrew calendar, today is Rosh Hashanah 5771, the beginning of the 5771th year since Creation. Like most Jewish holidays, Rosh Hashanah has much symbolic meaning for Christians also. David Brown wrote an excellent article about Rosh Hashanah and its meaning for both Jews and Christians. 

Mr. Brown writes: 

Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Year, is at once solemn and joyful. It is solemn because of the Awe of judgment. It is joyful because it represents the hope of the future redemption of Israel. Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the High Holy Days. It falls on the first day of the seventh month, according to the Hebrew calendar (see Leviticus 23:23). It could occur anywhere from the first to the last week of September on the Western calendar. (Sept. 11, in 1999) It ushers in the ten days of repentance leading up to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) will be broadcasting a Live celebration of Rosh Hashanah tonight at 7:30 PM EST. This should be an interesting and inspiring webcast as Pat Robertson leads the celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Links to additional information about the holiday can be found beneath the promo video.

Governor Palin posted a Rosh Hashanah greeting on Facebook earlier this morning:

As Jewish families gather to celebrate the New Year and a new beginning marking the Day of Creation, I want to join them in praying for a good and sweet year ahead. This day marks the beginning of a period of reflection and repentance. It is a time to remember our responsibilities to our families, our communities, our country, and our world. 

This is also a time to remember who we are as Americans and our responsibilities to help our friends and allies as they seek peace and security. The people of Israel have overcome so many challenges, taken so many risks, and made so many sacrifices in the pursuit of peace and a better life for their children. This New Year begins with a new hope for peace, but the threats to Israel – and to us – have not gone away. 

These are challenging times as Iran continues to work on building a nuclear weapon, Hamas attacks innocents on the eve of peace talks, enemies refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist, and even in Europe and the United States we hear voices from those trying to delegitimize Israel. 

To our Jewish friends and neighbors on this Rosh Hashanah, may you be inscribed in the Book of Life. And for our friends in Israel, know that the American people will continue to stand with you in this New Year as you strive for peace and security. 

Shanah tovah u’metukah. 

– Sarah Palin 

On behalf of the authors at SPIB, I also want to wish all of our Jewish friends and readers a happy Rosh Hashanah 5771 and a sweet, successful year ahead!

UPDATE:   The CBN event was a beautiful celebration that included a video about the history and traditions of Rosh Hashanah, dance troupes and music, a shofarist, and a message toward the end by Pat Robertson.  An archive of the Rosh Hashanah celebration can be found here.

Rumors Surrounding Palin and Beck Alaska Appearance

Posted by loricalabrese on September 8, 2010

The “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial had people turning out in droves. Sarah Palin’s Facebook page claims the event “drew an estimated crowd of 300,000 – 500,000,” and Beck told Fox News he thought it was between 300,000 and 600,000.

On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, conservative commentator Glenn Beck and former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, speaking as the mother of a soldier, gave a non-political salute to the military, with proceeds after expenses going to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a nonprofit that provides scholarships to children of Special Ops troops killed in action or training.

With the success of the rally, rumors are swirling surrounding a Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin appearance scheduled on 9/11 in Anchorage, Alaska’s Dena’ina Center.

Beck has admitted on his radio show that he’s going “on vacation” to Alaska and that he will be “giving a speech.”

“I’m gonna give a speech up there and Sarah’s gonna give a speech, but that’s it,” Beck said.

The highly significant time, place, guest list, and venue have led many to speculate that the event has been planned in order to announce a Palin 2012 presidential run.

No one knows for sure, but when it comes to Beck and Palin, and after the media attention surrounding the “Restoring Honor” rally, it’s sure to be more than just a speech.

McGinniss Moves Out

Posted by loricalabrese on September 8, 2010

Getting a new neighbor usually entails being friendly and open, but when your Sarah Palin and the neighbor is Joe McGinnis, it becomes a national story with accusations of stalking.

Author Joe McGinniss, who is penning an exposé about Palin, took up residence right next door to Palin’s lakeside home in Wasilla in May, to research his new book.  But, fortunately for the Palins, McGinniss’ time is up and he’s left Wasilla to head home to Massachusetts and start writing.

McGinniss, whose unauthorized biography of the former VP candidate is tentatively titled “Sarah Palin: The Year of Living Dangerously,” stirred controversy with the move and prompted Palin to take to her Facebook page to make McGinnis’ undercover operation very public.

“We found out the good news today,” she wrote. “We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning. Wonder what kind of material he’ll gather while overlooking Piper’s bedroom, my little garden, and the family’s swimming hole?”

McGinnis denied accusations of stalking, but it was pointed out at the time that it has hardly necessary to move in next to the Palin family to do research. Palin and husband Todd also quickly erected an 8-foot fence so that McGinnis could not see into their property.

“I’ve been very busy but on Lake Lucille it’s been very quiet,” McGinniss told The Associated Press. “As I told Todd back in May – he came over to get in my face about moving in there – I said, ‘You’re not even going to know I’m there. A lot of the time, I’m not going to be here. And when I am, I mind my own business. I don’t care what happens on your side of the fence. That’s not why I’m here.'”

McGinnis stated that everyone he met in Wasilla was very friendly and open and often offered him the use of their guns. But McGinniss also says he noticed an “undercurrent of fear” when interviewing locals about Palin.

“People – I don’t know if they’re afraid of shadows or whether there’s something real there – she’s no longer in a position of governmental influence but there are people up there who are scared to death to talk because if Sarah ever found out they talked, oh, something terrible would happen to them,” he said.

Who knows if McGinniss’ new book will compare to the recent Vanity Fair hit piece, but as Palin has said, “We’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to.”
