Sarah Palin: "Those are corrupt bastards."

She's talking about the media in Alaska... but she may well have been talking about the MSM in general.

Hats off to the lady for having the gonads to say what many of us are thinking and believing is absolutely true:

Some not the same as "we begin bombing in five minutes" is it?

They started bombing a few years ago, and this one is just a bitty hand grenade that someone forgot to throw after they pulled the pin.

Dang! She may not win the nomination but you just can't help but like this Lady! On ABC News yesterday McCain was asked is putting Pallin on the ticket was a mistake. He replied that it was not a mistake and that he has seen no one able to able to provoke such strong reactions form suppporters since Reagan. Take it for what it is worth!

Jeff Blogworthy:

Transcript of conspiratorial reporter conversation that prompted Palin's comments:

FEMALE REPORTER: That's up to you because you're the expert, but that's what I would do....I'd wait until you see who showed up because that indicates we already know something... [Laughter] [INAUDIBLE] FEMALE REPORTER: Child molesters... MALE REPORTER: Oh yeah ... can you repeat Joe Miller's ... uh ... list of people, campaign workers, which one's the molester? [INAUDIBLE] FEMALE VOICE: We know that out of all the people that will show up tonight, at least one of them will be a registered sex offender. [Laughter] MALE REPORTER: You have to find that one person... [INAUDIBLE] FEMALE REPORTER: And the one thing we can do is ... we won't know ... we won't know but if there is any sort of chaos whatsoever we can put out a twitter/facebook alert: saying what the... 'Hey Joe Miller punched at rally.' FEMALE REPORTER: Kinda like Rand Paul.... I like that. [Laughter] FEMALE REPORTER: That's a good one.

There's no such thing as unbiased media reporting anymore. All outlets have an agenda. Get over it, the truth is found in balance.

Under the First Amendment, and without a "fairness doctrine," there's no grounds for complaint. Any network or newspaper has the right to try to swing coverage in favor of any candidate they want.

It's perverse, useless, or hypocritical for Palin to complain about this while she's appearing on Fox, the Republican network.

Or maybe it's just the dumb chick thing of "I get what I want, and you don't."

Many I know loath Sarah Palin, not because of anything she's actually said or done but because of what the MSM has said and the way they said it, including political wizards like David dumb-ass Lettermen.

"There's no such thing as unbiased media reporting anymore. All outlets have an agenda. Get over it, the truth is found in balance."

You having an epiphany galoob? The MSM fawning over your Obamassiah the last several years never appeared to bother you.

Jeff Blogworthy:

This goes way beyond the bounds of "bias" into outright fraud and deceit. Of course, galoob is perfectly comfortable with that. In fact, he champions it. The more the left talks, the more we learn.

Let us not forget it was CBS behind Rathergate.

I didn't know Joe Miller had a campaign manager who was a child molester.

jim m:

Galoob staggers into the truth: There is no such thing as unbiased reporting. Heck, Pulitzer's papers were the ones that the term 'yellow journalism' was coined for. His reporting was horribly biased to the left.

Reporting has never been unbiased.

Where galoob veers back into the weeds of error is in assuming that the fairness doctrine was anything of the sort. The fairness doctrine is where we get this BS idea that media is objective. It also destroyed dissemination of information as most news outlets declined to put on shows that discussed politics.

When Reagan killed the fairness doctrine we saw an explosion of news and commentary. When there were just 3 main networks that dominated the news the fairness doctrine could be argued for. Today with millions of websites, hundreds of cable channels and dozens of talk radio outlets there is no need for a fairness doctrine. information can get out and does get out. The MSM can refuse to carry a story only so long before nontraditional media force it to.

Since you can trace liberal media bias back at least 100 years the answer is not to cloak it with some false facade of a fairness doctrine. The answer is to expose that bias and force the media to admit it.

Galoob, The purpose of the... (Below threshold)

Galoob, The purpose of the Fairness Doctrine is to require broadcasters to present opposing viewpoints on controversial subjects. Even if the Fairness Doctrine existed in its most draconian forms it would not have made a difference.

What these reporters did was unethical. This is not media bias, this is outright electioneering. This is a case where the newsroom was patently trying to influence an election by fabricating news.

Hey, maybe it's because Miller had his private SS-wannabe thugs arrested a reporter illegally and for no reason.



Miller might also be a general danger to freedom of the press if he thinks this is OK. That might give reporters of any ideological type a reason to bring him down.

Galoob, I guess what's good... (Below threshold)

Galoob, I guess what's good for the goose is good for the gander. In April 2009, John Ziegler was "arrested" and thrown off USC campus while trying to get an interview with Katie Couric.

The view of the Left then was, hey USC is a private campus and Ziegler was trespassing. How is that different than the video you just submitted?

The Left set the precedent. Being a Liberal means never needing to apologize for hypocrisy.

Can't say I'm too surprised by this, not after the Dan Rather National Guard fiasco years ago.

I am happy to see that these idiot reporters are dumb as rocks allowing them to get caught.

As for galoob, no surprise there either.

Those are corrupt bastards.

I agree. But that be some crappy English.

Jim Addison:

The station's pathetic denial to the contrary, this is an overt attempt to manage the news and drive the story.

Hardly shocking from CBS, though - the home of "fake but accurate" news.

Our mentally challenged commenter galoob failed to mention that while Palin is on Fox News, she is sitting next to Bectal, Colmes, Williams or some other liberal for both sides. That is fair and balanced. Try to find it on the alphabet channels. ww

What I've learned from galoob today:

1) There's one "Republican network". The rest are Democrat.

2) You have no right to complain that news is created rather than reported.

3) The truth is found in balance. Not facts.

I learn new stuff from him every day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

I learn new stuff from him every day. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

Here's something else to learn, when your private goons / schutzstaffel arrest a member of the reporter's guild for doing his job, don't be surprised when the rest of them get pissed off and try to torpedo you.

I win, galoob. Nazi references will disqualify you every time.

I win, galoob. Nazi references will disqualify you every time.

Does that mean that Glen Beck is permanently disqualified?

I'm just advising that it's not conducive for favorable coverage if the Liebstandarte Josef Müller keeps arresting reporters.

Maybe he's hoping to put them all in concentration camps.

OYSTER you did win by a landslide. The idiot referenced Nazi's twice. Wow! ww

I didn't know Joe Miller had a campaign manager who was a child molester. 9. Posted by galoob

Because you didn't see him at the NAMBLA meetings?

galoot says FoxNews is the "Republican network."

Spoken like a true Lefty who, like most of FoxNews' majority of Left-Wing on and behind-camera employees, sees things from such a skewed perspective as to believe anyone even slightly to the right of Joe Stalin or of Joe's modified-Marxist mates, Adolf Hitler and Franklin Roosevelt, is of the "right-wing."

"Republican network?" Sure shows that even a little Truth affects Lefties the way a little sunshine does it to vampires! Hell what was once the Republican Party is so overrun with "Democrats" in RINO costumes, there's hardly a Republican Party, anymore. Let alone a network.
