A Media Colonoscopy







Release of Sarah Palin emails angers American conservatives










What are we the Soviet Union?

Mike Oreskes, senior managing editor for national news at Associated Press, one of the organisations that put in the original freedom of information request for the emails, justified the move by saying Palin was a public figure who maintained a high profile and may run for president. "We are pressing to obtain the records of other presidential contenders in the months ahead."

Really!
What he forgot to add...as long as they're Republican contenders.
Where was the GD indispensable freedom of information act when it came  to laying bare... the mysterious one... Barack Hussein Obama? Birth certificate, college transcripts, his entire life shrouded in mystery. How would you like to see 24,000 of his emails. How many were sent to Soros, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko, and of course the infamous Rev Wright. 


Raise your hand if you would like to see the emails exchanged by the NLRB and the Messiah concerning the opening of a Boeing plant in S.C. 




Imagine

The Clintons..... 24,000 emails.
Even their liberal pals could't save them.
They both would be behind bars.

Somewhere I can just see Vince Foster smiling. 

Life is so much easier when you have the MSM in your back pocket.






The release of the Sarah Palin emails has provoked a backlash from grassroots conservatives accusing major US newspapers and the Guardian of engaging in a vendetta against the former Alaska governor and possible presidential candidate.

More than 24,000 emails from her time as governor were made public on Friday under freedom of information.

Conservatives bombarded newspapers, rightwing websites and other media outlets with complaints that Palin had been singled out for special treatment and that other politicians were not being subjected to the same level of scrutiny, in particular Barack Obama.

Greta Van Susteren, a Fox News journalist and one of the few members of the media trusted by Palin, labelled the treatment of Palin "a media colonoscopy" and suggested some news organisations were on "a mission to destroy".

That view was shared by her blog-readers, one of whom wrote: "What a sad time in America when a good, decent God-loving, America-loving and family-loving person is under attack by so called journalists."

The emails have produced fresh insights into Palin's character and leadership while governor of Alaska but no revelations so far that would damage a bid for the Republican nomination for the presidential race.

Palin said last week she was still considering whether to seek the Republican nomination for the 2012 White House race.

The media's intensive coverage of the emails appears to have hardened the view of her supporters that she is being victimised.

One reader writing to the Washington Post said the coverage had gone too far. "Sarah Palin simply never did anything to deserve this! Shame on the media that are behind this!" she wrote.

A conservative blogsite, Gateway Pundit, attracted a large amount on traffic on the issue, mainly complaining that Obama was not receiving the same treatment from the media. "Wow, if only the media had been this diligent in vetting Obama before the 2008 election," one reader wrote. Another said: "Just when you thought the NYT and WaPo couldn't prove themselves to be any more than partisan leftist rags, they surprise you again."

Mike Oreskes, senior managing editor for national news at Associated Press, one of the organisations that put in the original freedom of information request for the emails, justified the move by saying Palin was a public figure who maintained a high profile and may run for president. "We are pressing to obtain the records of other presidential contenders in the months ahead."
