Sarah smears continue
While the full extent of the relationship between Barack Obama and William Ayers, and the utter failure of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge to produce results after spending over 100 million dollars, are of no interest to the nation's major media, the possibility that Sarah or someone related to her might have made a mistake is the highest priority for many.
According to the filing, Richter wanted the documents deemed confidential in a bid to cloak details about his home, workplace, and phone numbers because "reporters and news agencies" were using that information to contact him. Richter, a 39-year-old contractor, noted that he is "friends and land owners in a remote cabin" with the Palins and, as a result, journalists were intruding on the "cabin life and private life" of him and his 11-year-old son.
Isn't that an extra dollop of irony? Mr. Richter wants to protect his son from lunatics. What happens? The lunatics use that as "evidence" that Palin had an affair with Richter and descend on him to get the dirt.
It only requires a trip to the nearest news stand to appreciate the degree to which the media are utterly unworthy of trust.
