Now that I’ve been checking my AOL e-mail more regularly through my browser rather than via its own application, I get to see the latest headlines they feature as I do those on Yahoo! And just like their sister server, they have a similar liberal bias and intense animus against a certain former Alaska Governor.
Every time I click on a link to an article about that good and accomplished woman, I chance on some screed, usually poorly sourced, attacking her in some form or another. The latest is AOL’s piece from left-wing columnist Jill Lawrence. As with much in the MSM about Governor Palin, well, we should just consider this hearsay, something that awaits confirmation by more reliable sources.
Almost all Lawrence’s sources are unnamed. So, I doubt the accuracy of her headline about John McCain being a “bit disappointed by” his running mate’s book.
Do these journalists even realize how they’re covering her, with no pretense at objectivity? It’s no wonder Palin is avoiding their ilk when she does her book tour.
As per my last post, Sarah Palin may well be seeking the spotlight, but that doesn’t mean the news media have to shine it upon her nor does it require them to use filters to obscure her accomplishments.
Once again, I ask, why this need to demonize her? Why don’t they just ignore her? I mean, heck, she’s no longer a Governor or anything.
Methinks it has much to do with their “need” to dismiss her appeal and discredit her supporters. These people really do seem compelled to attack those who do not fit their paradigm of a woman who enjoys the adulation of a large segment of the population. They want all successful women to fit the feminist narrative.
Problem is many, if not most, don’t.
