Media Tries to Set Narrative on Governor Palin’s Leaving FOX: Mark Levin Rebukes Joe Scarborough
Posted by Dr. Fay on January 29, 2013
Just as HBO tried to rewrite history with its fictional ‘Game Change’ movie, the media and leftist bloggers are trying to set the narrative this week on Governor Palin’s leaving FOX News. They are claiming that FOX News “dumped” Sarah Palin, that her influence has waned, that she is “irrelevant,” and on and on, accompanied by their usual lies and vitriol about Governor Palin.
A prime example is Joe Scarborough’s attack on Governor Palin on Morning Joe on Monday. Among other things, he stated that “Sarah Palin represented a time and place in American politics and not 2008 so much as 2010. And that time is passing us very quickly. Party leaders are finally understanding that.”
Well, Mark Levin said “enough is enough,” and lit into Joe Scarborough in the video above. He called Joe Scarborough an empty suit, a buffoon, and a half wit for trashing Governor Palin and said Scarborough couldn’t hold a candle to Palin.
Levin called Scarborough’s attack on Palin cowardice and cheap and trying to play to the backseats, selling out to his media masters at MSN (which Levin described as MSLD). He said that people think Scarborough is a joke. When Governor Palin goes somewhere, people know about it, and thousands show up. Levin said more people show up for Governor Palin’s events than watch Scarboroguh.
Levin said Scarborough tried and failed at radio and then became a dufous backbencher morning host on the most repugnant, discredited network in America, from where he shoots spitballs at conservatives, statesmen, and leaders. In contrast, candidates from all over the country, like Ted Cruz, sought Governor Palin’s endorsement. “Enough said,” Levin finished.
Whew! Levin really let him have it. Although Levin singled Scarborough out for rebuke, Scarborough’s attack is just a sample of what has been spewing from the mainstream media and leftist blogs this week. Very few in the mainstream media have reported about Governor Palin’s exit from FOX News without some negative spin. And the leftist bloggers have added numerous lies and distortions of the truth, attacking Governor Palin in any way that comes to their evil minds, so obsessed with hatred for one to whom they too cannot hold a candle.
The fact is that FOX News made Governor Palin an offer, and she turned it down. The scoop was given to Scott Conroy at Real Clear Politics by a source close to the Governor and reported here. Breitbart News was next to give an objective report, as Tony Lee writes here. Stephen Bannon was given a telephone interview with Governor Palin herself, on which he reports here. The Wall Street Journal gave one of the few objective reports in the mainstream media that I have seen, and it can be found here.
Governor Palin has decided to take her common-sense conservative message to a broader audience rather than “preach to the choir” that regularly watches FOX News. The left fears that, therefore they are trying to head her off at the gap. But I love what Governor Palin had to say:
I was raised to never retreat and to pick battles wisely, and all in due season. When it comes to defending our republic, we haven’t begun to fight! But we delight in those who underestimate us.
“We delight in those who underestimate us.” Like Joe Scarborough.
