Media. Is. Dead.
Here are this week’s media lies about Governor Sarah Palin:
** She intervened to get a job for her future son-in-law- LIE.
** She delayed serving an arrest warrant on the mother of Levi Johnston- LIE.
** She said “The media goes easy on Caroline Kennedy.” LIE.
** More crazy sensational allegations that her baby, Trig, is not hers- NUTS.
And then there’s this Really Unbelievable News…
McClatchy Watch reported that the The Anchorage Daily News still has a reporter investigating the wild conspiracy that Trig is not Sarah Palin’s son– That Trig is her daughter’s son… even though her daughter just gave birth last week.
This was posted by the editor of the Anchorage Daily News after Governor Palin called him out on the ongoing investigation:
On Dec. 31, eight days ago, I received an email from Gov. Palin asking several questions about news coverage in the Daily News. I took her inquiry seriously and by the end of the day had prepared a long email addressing each of her questions in detail.
This was her final question:
And is your paper really still pursuing the sensational lie that I am not Trig’s mother? Is it true you have a reporter still bothering my state office, my very busy doctor (who’s already set the record straight for you), and the school district, in pursuit of your ridiculous conspiracy?”
This was my reply:
Yes, it’s true.
You may have been too busy with the campaign to notice, but the Daily News has, from the beginning, dismissed the conspiracy theories about Trig’s birth as nonsense. I don’t believe we have ever published in the newspaper a story, a letter, a column or anything alleging a coverup surrounding your maternity.
In fact, my integrity and the integrity of the newspaper have been repeatedly attacked in national forums for our complicity in the “coverup.” I have personally received more than 100 emails accusing me and the paper of conspiring to hide the truth (about Trig’s birth.)
(I should acknowledge, however, that many people who commented on adn.com have alleged a coverup. Many of those were deleted as soon as we saw them, but many were not.)
I want to be very clear on this: I have from the beginning and do now consider the conspiracy theories about Trig’s birth to be nutty nonsense.
If that’s true, why has Lisa Demer been asking questions about Trig’s birth?
Because we have been amazed by the widespread and enduring quality of these rumors.
And yet the mainstream media has the nerve to criticize Joe the Plumber for reporting from Israel?
***- By the way– The media frenzy caused Levi Johnston to lose his job at the oil company even though it was legal for him to be working there and even though the young father is a good worker according to peers.
