    Palin: Media going easier on Kennedy because of class

    Palin: Media goes easy on Kennedy - Yahoo! News

    “I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen,” she said. “And I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.”

    The Alaska governor said that when she sees some of the coverage of her daughter Bristol especially “the momma grizzly rises up in me.”

    ...

    “I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that. And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more?” she said. “Because of however it works in that upper echelon of power brokering in the media and with spokespersons, it was told to me that, yeah, we are going to go back for more. And going back for more was
    So let me get this straight. First, the media went hard on you because you were a conservative/republican/christian/average woman. Now that it's been pointed out that ALL women across the political board have it pretty ****ty (Coulter, Pelosi, Hilary all come to mind like a heroin shot), the issue has become one of class? I wonder how 'class' had anything to do with your treatment. Didn't Obama's family come from a lower class then yours did? Didn't Bush's family come from a much higher class then yours did? I think Palin is grabbing really hard at straws. Maybe it's not so much 'class' but family history? The Kennedys have become part of history through tragedy, scandals and the role some of them have played in world events(Cuban Missile Crisis, RFK's murder, JFKs murder, Chappaquiddick etc.) while your family has become part of history because of a failed presidential campaign and teenage pregnancies.

    Oh and I forgot. You give Alaskan's money and can field dress a moose.

    I don't even see why people care about her anymore. She was unimportant before the election, so let her go back to being meaningless.

    Isn't she bringing herself up?

    YouTube - Sarah Palin Takes On The Media!! Exclusive Interview for "Media Malpractice"

    Video Exclusive: A Revealing Morning With Sarah Palin


    by John Ziegler If someone told me five months ago that in early January I would pay over $1,400 for an incredibly inconvenient plane ticket and $120 for a 3 a.m. cab fare to get from sunny Los Angeles to Wasilla, Alaska, I would have told them there was a better chance the Dow Jones would be below 9,000 and a gallon of gas less than two dollars.
    If they would have told me I’d be glad to have made the journey (even with a seven-hour, weather-aided stop in Seattle), I would have told them Sarah Palin had a better chance to be John McCain’s running-mate. Of course, as we all now know this turned out to be true. And even though I still have the flu I got just before the trip, I’m thrilled to have experienced minus-eleven degrees in Alaska.


    Obviously, I was there to interview Governor Palin for my forthcoming documentary about the media coverage of election 2008. My understanding is that the only reason Governor Palin did this interview (while rejecting hundreds of other requests) is because of her sincere devotion to setting the record straight on what really happened during the campaign and to determine why the news coverage was as dangerously slanted as it so clearly was.

    Largely because of absurd claims by Democrats that she was violating ethics rules by answering campaign questions on state grounds (one of several ways in which the Democrats in Alaska, who used to love her, are now fully invested in the “take Sarah Palin down” industry), we did the interview at the Palin home. At 9 a.m., without a security guard or handler in sight, Bristol Palin, eight days removed from giving birth, politely answered the door and Governor Palin, not yet fully put together, rushed out to tell myself and my crew to make ourselves at home.

    I honestly don't think people really started giving Palin crap until the Couric interview. Sure they did a sketch about her on SNL, but I think it was only a light jab compared to the bit they did about the Couric interview. And some people criticized the McCain campaign of vetting her solely to grab votes from the former Clinton supporters. However, I think that was mostly a criticism of the McCain campaign more than her personally. The moment that Kennedy does an interview like the Couric one people will start giving her crap like that too. The only thing I can see about Palin now is that she's desperately trying to remain relevant and she will until the media loses interest in her and it will happen soon I'm sure.

    Re: Palin: Media going easier on Kennedy because of class

    After being shown a clip of Couric complaining to David Letterman that no post-election interviewer has asked Palin why she would not tell the CBS anchor what newspapers she reads, the Alaska governor responded: “Because, Katie, you’re not the center of everybody’s universe.”




    I like that answer. Now can she name those newspapers?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Yes, they are, "Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years."


    Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?

    Palin: I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.

    Couric: What, specifically?

    Palin: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.

    Couric: Can you name a few?

    Palin: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, "Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?" Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.
