Last fall, when Levi Johnston was telling stories which confirmed the prejudices of MSM reporters and editors about Sarah Palin, they ate up his stories, featuring him on cable news programs, inviting him to swank Hollywood parties. Heck, one left-wing TV hostess even dubbed him a gay icon.
For certain figures in the media clearly delighting in promoting him so as they could better destroy their favorite villain in the post-George W. Bush era, the grandmother of his child. He took their interest in destroying Palin as a real interest in him and giving a kid from rural Alaska a chance in the big city.
Well, now they don’t seem as interested as they once did. You see, he made it all up:
After surfing the wave of celebrity that was primarily fueled by a willingness to lie about almost everything about Sarah, Todd and Bristol Palin, Levi has finally come clean in the pages of People, admitting; “”I publicly said things about the Palins that were not completely true.”
As the MSM lost interest in him, he surely had an epiphany, realizing that the media were just taking him for a ride to promote their preferred prejudice, you know about Sarah Palin being a rube from the sticks.
I didn’t catch the major news sources devoting as much time to his apology as they did to his fabrications. Wonder if any of them will engage in soul-searching about their readiness to believe his tales and their rush to give him lots of air time. Seems they’re only interested in the salacious details of the lives of Republican candidates for Vice President, given that this young man was given far more air time than a certain masseuse from Oregon.
