WaPo, NYT Recruit Palinophobes for Oppo Research (Updated)

Posted by joshpainter on June 9, 2011

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 .

Jennifer Rubin attacks Sarah Palin… again

Posted by joshpainter on December 8, 2010

– by Josh Painter
For the second time in less than eight days, Jennifer Rubin, the leftist Washington Post’s idea of a conservative (i.e., one who will attack Sarah Palin on demand), has gone after Gov. Palin. In a December 1 post, we noted how Rubin, who had mostly treated the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate fairly on the pages of Commentary Magazine and its Contentions blog, had started slamming Sarah for Rubin’s new masters, the WaPo editors.

Rubin continues with her anti-Palin pontificating Wednesday in her “Right Turn” column. Today’s attack is even more gratuitous than her first one, hyper-criticizing the governor for her tweets regarding the dealings in DC on the Bush tax cuts:

What is she talking about? It is obvious that an extension of the Bush tax cuts is wrong? Or is it obvious that Obama is adopting ideas that were once Republican positions? If the latter, it should be a good thing, one would think. This is Palin at her worst — reflexively anti-deal making, grandstanding, imprecise and unreasoned. If she has a specific policy argument — e.g. the payroll tax “costs” too much for too little job growth — then you’d think she, who has been accused of being light on policy knowledge, would want to spell . . er . . . tweet that out.

For some time, liberal pundits have been taunting conservatives that they need “adult” or “mature” leadership. Right now, Obama is short on both qualities. His shoddy performance yesterday highlights the opportunity for Republicans to field a candidate in 2012 who appears more presidential than the incumbent. But Palin certainly doesn’t give the impression she would be able to step into that role.

Rubin should be ashamed of herself. It’s obvious to anyone who can read and looks at Gov. Palin’s tweet in the context of her other Twitter messages on the subject what she means and where she stands. She obviously stands with Jim Demint, who tweeted that Republicans can do better than the current compromise they made with Obama on the cuts. Why is it so difficult for Rubin to recognize this? That’s a rhetorical question; it’s clear what the columnist is up to here.

We cut Rubin some slack, even after her shoddy treatment of Fred Thompson during the 2008 GOP presidential primaries. But Jennifer Rubin has crossed the line and is now spouting the same elitist nonsense that anti-Palin faux conservatives David Frum, Kathleen Parker, Karl Rove and Peggy Noonan have been cranking out, some of them for years. Sadly, Rubin has sold out to the WaPo leftists and is now doing their dirty work for them. The last ounce of respect we had for this writer has evaporated. She’s fitting in very well at the Democrats’ DC house organ.
