While the "legacy media" is distorting a Sarah Palin non story, they're ignoring and/or suppressing vital information on their liberal favorites. As Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit notes:
LA Times Won't Release Obama-Khalidi Tape But Posts 24,000 Sarah Palin Emails
In 2008 The LA Times withheld a video that contained footage of Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who were openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama reportedly even gave a toast to a former PLO operative, Rashid Khalidi, at this celebration. This was something the LA Times hid from the American public before the election. The media refused to release the video.
There were also reports that terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were at the same Jew-bash. Khalidi was thought to be connected to the PLO.
Not one of these formerly major media organizations had thought it necessary in 2008 to file a Freedom of Information Act request to do a minimal vetting on presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama (D); those bloggers and others with less financial resources than the increasingly sidestream media who did, such as here at American Thinker, were smeared as racists.
Meanwhile the media mob anti Sarah Palin e mail frenzy seems to be backfiring; what they're discovering is that Sarah Palin is
an idealistic, conscientious, humorous and humane woman slightly bemused by the world of politics.
One can only assume that the Left-leaning editors who dispatched teams of reporters to remote Juneau, the Alaskan capital, to pore over the emails in the hope of digging up a scandal are now viewing the result as a rather poor return on their considerable investment.
If anything, Mrs Palin seems likely to emerge from the scrutiny of the 24,000 pages, contained in six boxes and weighing 275 pounds, with her reputation considerably enhanced. As a blogger at Powerline noted, the whole saga might come to be viewed as "an embarrassment for legacy media".
As if the legacy media could be embarrassed.
