    Why would AP go after Palin's book and not anyone else's? It boils down to fear. I said before that sales had nothing to do with it, but in reality they do. Palin's going to win even more fans, after the book comes out. The Libbo press had to head that off by discrediting the book, even if they had to twist the facts to do it.

    it's quite obvious what's going on here.

    Sarah Palin is no normal politician, and at the Associated Press, apparently "Going Rogue" is no normal book.

    When the former Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska governor wrote her autobiography, the AP found a copy before its release date and assigned 11 people to fact check all 432 pages.

    The AP claims Palin misstated her record with regard to travel expenses and taxpayer-funded bailouts, using statements widely reported elsewhere. But it also speculated into Palin's motives for writing "Going Rogue: An American Life," stating as fact that the book "has all the characteristics of a pre-campaign manifesto."

    Palin quickly hit back on a Facebook post titled "Really? Still Making Things Up?"

    "Imagine that," the post read. "11 AP reporters dedicating time and resources to tearing up the book, instead of using the time and resources to 'fact check' what's going on with Sheik Mohammed's trial, Pelosi's health care takeover costs, Hasan's associations, etc. Amazing."

    The organization did not review for accuracy recent books by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, then-Sen. Joe Biden, either book by Barack Obama released before he was president or autobiographies by Bill or Hillary Clinton. The AP did more traditional news stories on those books.


    This really is shameless. 0 for liberal books but Palin gets 11 fact checkers

    Your analysis is really lame and blind to the fact that GOP partisan hacks quote Obama's books constantly--

    And are we now accepting an editorial network as a source for news??

    Yet when I called someone else on an unsubstantiated claim, which was not favorable to the topic you came to the rescue with trolling and nonsense... so somehow I'm not too enthused with your sudden claim of clear insight and analysis. Seems if you agree, you'll defend unsubstantiated claims but if you do not, you call it whining.

    So pardon my ignoring you on this type of subject matter because you're credibility is in the ****ter so far.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Irrelevant since there's no evidence to suggest any one news source has sent multiple "journalists" to fact check his book.

    Depends if it's liberal or conservative and what you're personal views are. You seem to find no issue with Palin's book being fact checked, yet you'd be the loudest whiner were it Obama's book instead.

    What's so funny is, they invest so much time and resources attacking the woman, while at the same time proclaiming she's a "joke" and she doesn't matter politically. If she doesn't matter, then why is she such big news to them?
    Dr. Patrick hit the nail on the head. Sarah Palin is the hot topic for the Conservative movement. That's why she's in the press so much these days. Frankly, I don't find her to be that news worthy or that high up on the political chain, but she's making headlines and as such the media will do whatever it takes to find a story about her - any story. Her book and the back-and-forth accusations are what's making news about her right now. It'll die down when both sides decide they've had enough.

    It'll die down when Palin ceases to be a threat the Leftists.

    It will die down only when the Left either a) sees that their tactics are backfiring or b) can't get any more traction out of their unrelenting assault on Sarah Palin. Or both.
