WaPo, NYT Recruit Palinophobes for Oppo Research (Updated)

Remember when the Associated press assigned eleven of its crack reporters to “fact check” Sarah Palin’s first book Going Rogue? Democrat Party house organ The Washington Post has found a cheaper way to allocate resources in the corrupt media left’s endless pursuit of digging for dirt on the first woman to be the vice presidential candidate of the Republican Party. It is recruiting Palin-hatin’ Post readers to do it for free.

Ryan Kellett, who holds the title of “Interactivity Producer” at WaPo and has his byline under the bold head “Help investigate the Palin e-mails,” makes the pitch:

More than 24,000 e-mail messages sent to and from Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska’s governor will be released Friday. Join The Post in digging through them. We are looking for 100 organized and diligent readers who will work alongside Post reporters to analyze, contextualize, and research the e-mails. Think of it as spending some time in our newsroom.

Our hope is that working together, we can efficiently find interesting information and extract new stories that will lead to further investigation. We don’t know what we’ll find, but we want you to be ready and open for the challenge.

You will communicate with us virtually and work in small teams to make light work of reviewing the e-mail threads. Notice the patterns. Identify recipients and senders. Connect specific e-mails to larger themes and events. We’ll give you a sense of what to look out for, but the hope is that your team can tackle the challenge together in a collaborative way that our journalists alone cannot. And in fact, we are selecting just 100 people because we want to make real use of your talents and trust you to use teamwork to your advantage.

How acute is the epidemic of Palin Derangement Syndrome among the Post partisans? We can practically see Kellett’s words salivating on our computer monitor, so thrilled is he with the prospect of finding juicy tidbits in the governor’s e-mails. We wonder if he also has a thrill running up his leg. Too bad he and his WaPo cohorts could not get as excited about digging into the obscured details of a half-term Senator’s college records and the radical characters he chose to associate with back in the day, and then in the years thereafter. If they had bothered, the republic would likely not have traveled so many miles down the road to ruin.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if some enterprising Paliniste volunteered to go undercover and submitted applications to play in the Post’s pool of Palin plunderers? If you’ve always wanted to be a double agent, or if you would just like to bring a little bit of fairness and balance to WaPo’s witch hunt fishing expedition, just follow the links.

Update: The NY Times is also recruiting would-be muckrakers who are heck-bent on sliming Sarah. Help ‘em out, even if it’s not quite with the degree of bloodlust they are looking for .

Sarah Palin Joins FOX News As a Political Commentator

Posted by Dr. Fay on January 11, 2010

Early this afternoon (12:32 PM), Jim Rutenberg at the New York Times was the first to report (h/tp C4P) that Governor Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year contract with FOX news:

Former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska has signed on as a contributor to the Fox News Channel.

The network confirmed that Ms. Palin will appear on the
network’s programming on a regular basis as part of a multi-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Ms. Palin will not have her own regular program, one person familiar with the deal said, though she will host an occasional series that will run on the network from time to time. This
person would not elaborate, but the network does have a precedent for such a series.

Oliver L. North is the host of an occasionally running
documentary series on the military called “War Stories.”

Later this afternoon, FOX News posted this online:

The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list, has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.

She will also participate in special event political programming for
Fox Broadcasting.

“I am thrilled to be joining the great talent and management team at Fox
News. It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced
news,” Palin said in a written release.

Palin will also host periodic episodes of Fox News Channel’s “Real American Stories,” a series exploring inspirational real-life tales of overcoming adversity throughout the American landscape that will debut in 2010.

“Governor Palin has captivated everyone on both sides of the political spectrum and we are excited to add her dynamic voice to the FOX News lineup,” said Bill Shine, executive vice president of programming.

Mike Allen at Politico had this to say:

After spending five months pondering a fat stack of TV offers, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year deal with Fox News to serve as a contributor across all Fox News platforms….

Palin, often described as having the hottest brand in American politics after
President Barack Obama, was eagerly courted by both cable and broadcast networks beginning the day she announced she was leaving the Alaska governorship.

This puts Governor Palin in an excellent position to offer unfiltered political commentary on America’s most-watched cable news network. It will also give her a platform from which to speak as she becomes involved in the 2010 mid-term elections and beyond.

Congratulations, Governor Palin and FOX News!
