Media Mocks Concerned Americans Seeking Answers

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on May 8, 2013

I am weeping for for my country today.  It used to be that journalism was a profession of honor.  It was a career for seekers of truth; people with curiosity and writing skills who wanted to provide the “who, what, when, where, and why” of what happened in a particular situation.  Providing just the facts allowed the reader to form his/her own opinion on the matter at hand.  Sadly, that seems to no longer be the case as is evidenced here.  Earlier today, The Washington Post posted the following tweet regarding the hearings into what  happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

WaPo_13_0508

In case you’re having a hard time reading the tweet from the above picture, let me help you out:

Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers http://wapo.st/18YFgKP

Yes, you’re reading that correctly and yes, the “Twitter voice” of the Washington Post has stooped to mocking Americans who are deeply concerned about what transpired in Benghazi that fateful day when  four American lives were lost.

In response to the tweet from the Washington Post, I replied as follows:

WaPo_JSresponse

My tweet:

@washingtonpost Our ancestors & those that currently serve shed blood & DIE for a free press. Your job is seeking #truth . How dare you!

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page in response to the above:

Is there any wonder why distrust of arrogant, out-of-touch media is at an all-time high? During today’s Benghazi hearings, the Washington Post actually tweeted: “Who’s tweeting about Benghazi? Rich, middle-aged men and Chick-fil-A lovers.” This would be the same Washington Post that broke the story on Watergate. Now they just mock concerned Americans who want answers to why four brave Americans died, including two distinguished vets. And the Obama administration asks, “What does it matter?”

– Sarah Palin

I don’t know that I can pinpoint exactly when journalism died but without a doubt, she’s dead and gone.

Palin: CNN, We Want Truth in Reporting

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on April 7, 2013

Sarah Palin, via her Facebook page, calls out the lame-stream media again.

CNN: it’s no wonder your ratings still aren’t matching competitors. American viewers are smarter than you assume, and we simply want truth in reporting.

Please see the article linked below. Wolf Blitzer’s recent coverage of this story really was blisteringly dishonest. First, because he didn’t reach out to me or the SarahPAC staff for rebuttal. Second, because he failed to disclose the anti-tea party associations of the “architect” of this story whose organization is a competitor of my efforts to advance the candidacies of genuine grassroots conservatives – not those handpicked by the permanent political class. As the article explains, in my recent CPAC speech I gulped and denounced the consultants who engage in campaign hopping and have made a racket out of multi-million dollar failures each election cycle for themselves and their cronies. What a shame CNN continues to plug away in a floundering direction with reports like this. The shame is that they employ some top-notch reporters who no doubt believe in truth in journalism, but examples like this diminish the good reporters’ good efforts.

As a side note, I find it interesting that CNN recently disclosed that their old “Crossfire” show might hit their airwaves again. Wasn’t CNN among those who issued blistering criticism about the use of a “crossfire” icon in 2010 to represent political districts we wished to see represented by commonsense conservatives? CNN, among others, implied that using a “crossfire” icon (which was a tactic first employed by Democrats to illustrate political maps of districts they “targeted” to win) was inciting violence.

Included in Palin’s post was a link to this Breitbart article written by Tony Lee:

Anti-Tea Party No Labels Co-founder Unleashes Attack on Sarah Palin

 

Big Gulp Lady Liberty AP

John Avlon, the co-founder of the anti-Tea Party No Labels group, wrote a bizarre attack piece on Sarah Palin’s lean political action committee last week after completely misconstruing what Palin said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. At CPAC, the former Alaska governor and Tea Party leader denounced the permanent political class and urged Republicans to “furlough” the consultants.

Palin railed against consultants and those who need them for stories–like Avlon, who, along with those like Mark McKinnon, feigns objectivity while pushing the “No Labels” agenda that is mutually exclusive with that of conservatives and Tea Partiers. Those like Avlon often bash influential Tea Party conservatives like Palin to pay tribute to their liberal mainstream media masters, who then reward them with dutiful pats on the head and television appearances for him to peddle his “centrist” books the country does not care about, will not read, and certainly has no intention of buying.

More importantly, though, Avlon and the No Labels crowd are directly threatened by the rise of conservatives and Tea Partiers, and they want to do everything they can do diminish the person who serves as a successful spokeswoman and clearinghouse for conservative and Tea Party candidates.

Never in Palin’s CPAC speech, which Avlon references heavily in his less than substantive article, did she say a politician cannot have advisers. There is a huge difference between a politician’s staff who work almost exclusively for a politician and consultants who look for a new roster of candidates every election cycle.  More

#SarahPalinDoes Lights Up Twitter

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 19, 2013

SarahPalinDoes13_0319

In response to a comment from Tucker Carlson during an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Palin supporters set Twitter “on fire” with #SarahPalinDoes. As usual, Twitchy did a great job in featuring some of the best tweets here.

Mr. Carlson, in his infinite wisdom (or his complete ineptness) uttered, during Van Susteren’s interview, that he was “not clear what Sarah Palin does”.  In my opinion, Carlson is simply part of the main stream (lame stream) media whose agenda is to tear down the most powerful and influential voice for grassroots Conservatives. I’m going to go out on and limb and guess that Mr. Carlson is not familiar with the following:  It is often said in Alaska that “the Alaskan political landscape is littered with the bodies of those who underestimated Sarah Palin.”

In response to tweets with hashtag #SarahPalinDoes, Sarah Palin tweeted the following message of thanks:

#SarahPalinDoes appreciate support from those who are in it for a reason, not a season.

Thanks Governor Palin.  We’ve got your back too.

Vanity Fair Attacks Sarah Palin

Posted by loricalabrese on September 2, 2010

When there are rumors spreading like wildfire that a 2012 presidential run lies ahead, every note posted on Facebook is an immediate news story, a new book will be published soon, and the buzz is that you’re a politician who’s hit rock-star status, it’s no surprise people are going to gossip.

In this case, it’s Vanity Fair’s Michael Joseph Gross who hit the rumor mill and supposedly talked to some political strategists, Palin friends, hotel staff, shopkeepers, hairstylists and high-school friends of the Palin children on the condition of anonymity to dish the dirt on Sarah Palin. Vanity Fair, which often profiles presidential hopefuls, released two articles for their October issue on the former Governor, headlined “Sarah Palin: the Sound and the Fury” and “Sarah Palin’s Shopping Spree: Yes, There’s More ….” The articles paint Palin in a negative light–as a ruthless, secretive, deceptive, money and media-obsessed roadshow.

For instance, Gross writes that of the many famous people who have stayed at the Hyatt in Wichita (Cher, Reba McEntire, Neil Young), Sarah Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper: $5 for seven bags.

Gross also writes that Sarah Palin has a terrible temper, citing that on the 2008 campaign trail, “one close aide recalls, it was practically impossible to persuade Palin to take a moment to thank the kitchen workers at fund-raising dinners. During the campaign, Palin lashed out at the slightest provocation, sometimes screaming at staff members and throwing objects.”

Gross also writes, “This whole hunter thing, for Sarah? That is the biggest fallacy,” says one longtime friend of the family. “That woman has never hunted. The picture of her with the caribou she says she shot? She got out of the R.V. to pose for a picture. She never helps with the fishing either. It’s all a joke.”

Despite the long article, it should be noted that Gross only names one person who went on the record, Colleen Cottle, who served on the Wasilla City Council when Palin was mayor. Cottle complained that Palin “had no attention span” and “does not understand math or accounting.”

Ooooh. Do you think Palin is singing, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”?

With only one named source, why should readers believe anything in this article? It seems Vanity Fair deserves it’s spot in the supermarket racks next to The Globe and The National Enquirer.

What I find most interesting about the Vanity Fair articles is that there’s no such thing as bad PR for Palin. The vanity Fair magazine is gossip, plain and simple, but people will be intrigued to read it because gossip sells. But whether they believe it is another issue.

People seem to have grown tired of the hit pieces on Palin, possibly because there are so many. Everyday you click on the computer or open a magazine, there’s an article portraying the former governor in a negative light. The reason why pieces like the two from Vanity Fair have almost no effect is simple: Americans can distinguish articles written to sell magazines and articles written to provide information.

Newsweek writes in an article, Why No Amount of Reporting Can Hurt Sarah Palin,, “Indeed, it is hard to imagine a more conventional politician surviving the claims that Gross makes. He systematically undermines the very aspects of her life that her image is built on: family, God, empowering women, children, and affinity for everyday folks.”

But Palin will survive because every day we wake up to find another hit piece published,  we all know it only helps her popularity, not tarnish it. It proves her point about the “lamestream media”  and just as Americans are losing faith in the current administration, Americans are losing faith in their news system and their responsibility to report THE NEWS.

Jack Carr: Sarah Palin Is A Media Sensation

Posted by Dr. Fay on April 5, 2010

A mixture of condescension and admiration, Jack Carr’s article makes some noteworthy observations about Sarah Palin’s amazing success story.  It was impossible to remove all the small barbs, but here are some of the more salient points:

When Sarah Palin made her debut as the host of “Real American Stories” on Fox News on Thursday night, she described several triumphs of regular people over insurmountable odds, but she missed an obvious one: her own.

[…]

With its tales of uplift and pluck, “Real American Stories” trades in the kind of easy sentimentality that provokes eye rolls among those of us who work in media while quickening the pulse and patriotic ardor of almost everyone else. At the beginning of the show, Ms. Palin promised that it would “reaffirm our pioneering spirit and unmatched generosity, here and around the world.”

And so it did, with two million people tuning in. It featured a young man with cerebral palsy who was inspired to walk by the love of a dog, a millionaire who financed the college educations of legions of underprivileged youngsters, and a soldier who died to save his brothers in arms. (LL Cool J’s interview was withdrawn after he complained that it was going to be used in Ms. Palin’s show, proving that not everyone was in the reaffirming mood.)

[…]

She was paid a $1.25 million retainer by HarperCollins. Her book, “Going Rogue,” has sold 2.2 million copies, according to its publisher, and she has another tentatively scheduled for this fall.

She now has an actual television career, including appearances as a pundit on Fox News, her gig as the host of “Real American Stories” four times a year, and a coming eight-part series on TLC called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” which will cost, according to some media reports, $1 million an episode (a lot more than governors make for “Come visit!” P.S.A.’s).

Other people have crossed the border from politics to media to very good effect — George Stephanopoulos, Patrick Buchanan and Chris Matthews, to name a few — but the transition was far more gradual. Ms. Palin turned on a dime and was a ratings sensation from the word go: her first paid appearance, as a commentator on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Jan. 12, was good for an extra million viewers.

Her appeal doesn’t stop at the red states. When Ms. Palin stopped by to chat with Oprah Winfrey — not exactly friendly territory — the show achieved its biggest ratings in two years.

[…]

Back in September 2008, when she was unveiled in St. Paul during the Republican convention, a longtime political reporter told me that her appeal would burn off over time. I wondered about that. I’m from Minnesota, which is sometimes considered the southernmost tip of Alaska, and her way of speaking in credulous golly-gee may have been off-putting to some, but there is a kind of authenticity there that no image handler could conjure.

In Ms. Palin’s America, everyone’s got bootstraps; they just need to have the gumption to find them. And her version is full of plain old folks spending a lot of time overcoming a great deal, including a government that she posits usually intends to do them harm. “America is exceptional! It’s not her politicians that make her so; it’s her everyday people and the values Americans hold so dear,” she said on her Facebook page, which, by the way, has 1.5 million fans.

[…]

Ms. Palin still gets a session in the media spanking machine every time she does anything, but the disapproval seems to further cement the support of her loyalists. Ms. Palin may or may not be qualified to represent America around the world, but she certainly represents vast swaths of the American public and has a lucrative new career to show for it.

If we don’t see why, then maybe we deserve the “lamestream media” label she likes to give us.

Palin scheduled for Leno return

Posted by loricalabrese on February 28, 2010

Jay Leno faces an uphill battle to reclaim his spot as host of “The Tonight Show.” Leno’s return Monday night has many people wondering if he can win back viewers, barely eight months after Conan O’Brien’s debut.

NBC is hoping to see higher ratings and has been busing preparing and lining up guests. Jamie Foxx will join Leno for his first show on March 1, alongside Olympic medallist Lindsey Vonn and musician Brad Paisley.

Sarah Palin and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White will be welcomed on March 2.

Palin’s last appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien garnered a huge response as she graced the stage during an interpretative reading of “Going Rogue” by William Shatner.  Palin tackled her own reading of Shatner’s autobiography “Up Till Now.”

NBC said Monday that other guests set for Leno’s first week back include Olympic champion Apolo Anton Ohno, Simon Cowell, Kristen Stewart, Avril Lavigne, Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey.

Palin to Media: You Crack Me Up!

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 1, 2009

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

After reading Governor Palin’s recent Facebook note, I feel so inclined to stand up and shout, “You go, Gov. Tell ’em!” Nothing like a little straight talk to bring out the “Amen” in me!

You know the media are grasping at straws in their attempt to discredit Governor Palin when their breaking news is that she’s been on an airplane! And I’m so glad she commented on the fact that they’ve gotten their information from some insane bloggers who have dedicated a plethora of time to an asinine investigation into who Trig’s real mom is! Can you say “desperate”?!

Read the note in its entirety. Not only does she put the crazed anklebiters in their place, she also shows some love for her common sense supporters.

Media’s Priorities Shine Bright, Again! :)

It’s really comical at this point! Despite all of the important events happening in the world today – the president’s speech tonight on the strategy in Afghanistan, the Senate debate over health care reform, the disturbing details of the “Climategate” scandal, the continuing challenges facing the world economy – the media is concerned about my travel and lodging arrangements on my book tour?! Does this sound familiar? It should. The media showed the same out-of-proportion obsession with my personal arrangements, clothes, and hairstyles last year instead of focusing on the crucial issues involving the election.

So what is this news “story”? That I fly on an airplane to complete some of the stops on my book tour when it’s impractical or physically impossible to reach the next event on time by bus. Some news outlets are behaving as if my travel was a secret that they didn’t know about – despite the fact that I’ve tweeted about my flights and at least one local newspaper reported on the arrival of my flight into Rochester, NY. What’s even funnier is that these same media outlets think it’s shocking that we stay in hotels. I guess they expected us to pitch a tent alongside the road. We love the great outdoors, but such an arrangement is hardly practical for a book tour. Using common sense, it was determined that traveling by plane between some stops would save time and energy and allow me to go to more events. Economically speaking for HarperCollins, it’s more efficient to travel by charter, and I am very grateful to the publisher for providing my family and me with this incredible opportunity to shake hands with as many Americans as possible on this book tour.

If you’re scratching your head wondering why my flight and hotel logistics warrant news coverage, join the club. They can, of course, report on whatever they like, but in my opinion CBS loses whatever professional integrity it still has when it links in its report to a website devoted to the bizarre conspiracy theory that I’m not the real mother of my son Trig.

I’m truly humbled by the response to my book tour by everyday Americans, and if traveling by plane means that I can meet more of these wonderful people, I’ll travel by plane (or bus or train or canoe or dog sled or whatever it takes). Please enjoy the photos below!*

November 30, 2009 Synopsis of Governor Palin’s Accomplishments

Posted by Ron Devito on November 30, 2009

Governor Palin’s accomplishments over the past two months distill to four core areas: book tour, media Interviews, commercial speaking engagements, and communicating with us via Facebook Notes and Tweets.

Going Rogue Book Tour

Going Rogue: An American Life was released on Tuesday, November 17, 2009. The book had already earned number one positions in pre-order sales at both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The tour began on Wednesday, November 18 in Grand Rapids, MI — the state for which McCain campaign aides said Governor Palin was “going rogue” when she issued a statement that she wanted to continue campaigning there — and the basis of the book’s title. The tour moved east, then south, stopping for Thanksgiving and is now underway once more. The book tour will stop in the western half of the United States, with a brief return east and conclude on December 10. Retail sales of Going Rogue exceeded 700,000 during the first week of the tour.

For those unable to make a signing for whatever reason, a $100 donation to either SarahPAC or the Republican Governors Association will earn you a signed copy — a sweet deal, considering that people are spending $500 or more to travel to signing events.

Media Interviews

Concomitant with the book tour, Governor Palin conducted interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Barbara Walters, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Greta Van Susteren, Eddie Burke, among others.

Commercial Speaking Engagements

Governor Palin addressed the Wisconsin Right to Life group on November 6, 2009. She will be speaking to student at the College of the Ozarks on citizenship, involvement and patriotism on December 2, 2009; the Salina, KS Chamber of Commerce on February 5, 2010, the National Tea Party Convention on February 6, 2010, and a Sierra Cascade Logging Conference on February 8, 2010.

These are Washington Speakers Bureau speeches, which means there is a prohibition on media coverage and recording of the content for dissemination. Professional reporters and some bloggers have attached a negative connotation to this prohibition, but these are commercial, copyrighted speeches, and re-broadcasting them diminishes the value of them.

Facebook and Twitter

Governor Palin has published Facebook Notes on health care, energy independence, and national security during these past two months. One item, “Drill” was published in National Review. Governor Palin now has well over 1 million supporters on Facebook; her new Twitter account SarahPalinUSA has nearly 32,000 followers. Her old Twitter account, AKGovSarahPalin was decommissioned. This author has archived Tweets from that account.
