Big Media Frenzy Over Palin While Looking Other Way with Obama

In the end, it matters what Obama does, but the media would rather focus on an ex-governor!

Don't you think it was a little odd that the media went into a frenzy over the Palin email release and then the story just disappeared? I guess it's obvious they didn't find any dirt or you would have heard about it.

This NY Post editorial sums up the story perfectly:
Could Big Media look any dumber?

The all-points-bulletin attention that national media organizations gave to the release last week of official e-mails from Sarah Palin's tenure as Alaska's governor sure backfired.

Not only was Palin not discredited by the emails, but they exposed to the public a competent leader and a rather decent human being.

Imagine the disappointment of The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and other outlets.

To help sift through 24,000 pages of e-mails, coughed up via freedom-of-information requests, the publications recruited readers to wade through the pages online, in search of embarrassing tidbits.

This, in addition to the teams of reporters they sent.

It all yielded precious little.

A governor who tried to keep spending under control and taxes low?

Simply shocking.

It's all rather unseemly -- and not just because Palin is a private citizen now (albeit one with a very high profile).

No, what's really embarrassing to Big Media -- or would be, if it had any shame -- is the contrast between the Palin frenzy and the lap-dog lethargy with which it covered the details of Obamacare, the administration's near-trillion-dollar stimulus package or economy-killing regulatory decisions by the EPA or National Labor Relations Board.

You know, legislation and agencies that actually affect the livelihoods of millions of Americans every single day.

But obviously what Sarah Palin was doing three and four years ago is more important to the country's well-being than what Barack Obama is doing now.

Who knew?
One thing we did learn from the Palin emails is that as governor she strongly opposed the hunting of wolves from helicopters. Do you think that all those mainstream sources will now correct the record which left the impression that she strongly supported the idea (1,2,3)? Don't bet on it. Besides, like all the other lies told about Palin the damage is already done. We still have people out there who think Palin said "I can see Russia from my house." It was Tina Fey playing Palin on Saturday Night Live but don't tell the ignoramuses who believe otherwise. They won't listen.

Is it any wonder that simple-minded Obama voters couldn't answer questions about basic political knowledge yet knew every false rumor about Sarah Palin and accepted it as truth?

America is facing it's greatest economic challenge since the great depression and we have a news media that is not informing the people about the real issues which have a direct, daily impact on their lives. In two words, it is an utter disgrace!
