Now Isn’t That Interesting

Posted by Morgan on June 10, 2011

So, the moment finally arrived.  After nearly three long years, the media was given access to Sarah’s e-mails from her tenure as Governor of Alaska.  The task was a mean feat (to say the least), as nearly 25,000 e-mails were released in answer to a Freedom of Information Act request, and the secondary task of going through those nearly 25,000 e-mails was such a mean feat in its own right that we saw the Anchorage Daily News, The Washington Post and the (laughable, of course) newspaper of record itself, The New York Times, asking readers to help them sift through the e-mails in the hope of finding some dirt about Sarah.  Now isn’t that just interesting.

And what has the media found so far?  Well, if you read what William A. Jacobson writes at his blog Legal Insurrection, the headlines so far have been predictably pathetic.  Tanning beds, low regard for the mainstream media (gee, I wonder why?), a hands-on approach to her job as Governor, encouraging staff to be open with the media, the rare mentioning of Michigan (say what?!), and PR advice from Newt Gingrich (you don’t say?), among other highlights.  It doesn’t take much to go through the list of headlines and come away thinking, that’s it?  That’s what the Daily News, the Post and the Times come up with?  After asking for help to sift through all these e-mails from readers, all those nearly 25,000 e-mails, this is what they come up with?  These are the “interesting tidbits” they find?  Now isn’t that just interesting.

I should inform you that the media has also reported it might take a few days to “make sense” of all these e-mails (certainly didn’t take a few minutes!), and yet I can’t help but think of the first sentence Adrienne Ross wrote in a post today at her own blog Motivation:Truth, “The media is beclowning itself.”  Truer words were never spoken.  It does not amaze me, it does not surprise me, it does not even anger me, to see what the mainstream media as a whole is doing in regards to Sarah’s e-mails.  Nearly three years of Palin Derangement Syndrome has brought these organizations and others to the point they are sifting through the e-mails she sent and received while serving as Governor in the vain hope of finding something, anything, to bring her down politically.  You know, if they had paid attention to Sarah when she last spoke to Chris Wallace or perhaps read Adrienne’s post, maybe they could have avoided being the subject of Professor Jacobson’s post.

I’d say “Now isn’t that just interesting” if it were truly interesting, but in reality, it’s just plain pitiful.

Setting the Record Straight: About False Quotes Attributed to Gov. Palin

Posted by Ron Devito on June 10, 2011

 

An absurd opinion piece in Politico includes a quote attributed to Governor Palin that is a total fabrication and yet is deliberately written to appear as if it is a legitimate direct quote. By any standard this is unacceptable even for an opinion piece. This puts us in mind of a real quote of something Governor Palin actually did once say to the media: “Quit making stuff up.”
