New and old media fail

So it’s come to light after Weinergate that Sarah Palin’s e-mails as governor have been released after lefty rag Mother Jones did a FOIA request.

The result?

So what did she [Rachel Maddow] do Friday night in the segment about the Palin e-mails? She highlighted an e-mail sent to Palin by someone else to which Palin did not respond, using the phrase “bring beef, tequila and condoms,”

I pity David Corn of Mother Jones, who wanted to ride the Palin e-mails to stardom, but who has been reduced to appearing on Maddow with the phrase “bring beef, tequila and condoms” plastered under his image:
“Rachel Maddow Brings “Beef, Tequila and Condoms” Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

They even hired–er, asked their readers (as did the Washington Post and the New York Times) so comb through the e-mails for free. Aside from a letter about Trig Palin, nothing was found. Nothing at all. Ann ALthouse points out that Weinergate made the dems and the left look silly,so they tried to get Palin as revenge. They got gurgle, small government and family values instead.

Meanwhile, no one in the media ever did this to our leadership. Not a single figure in the Whitehouse or this administration was subject to this kind of rectal exam. We’re involved in four wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen). And the public doesn’t like it.

The left’s “netroots” are no better, ThinkProgress is just making shit up now. As did the rest of the netroots with a hoax involving (you guessed it) Palin.

With the economy tanking, Dems looking foolish and the wars expanding, this is the best our “media” can do? Attack someone not running for any office? She’s a failure, she lost. Right?

They told me if i voted Republican, the corporate media would try to distract the nation away from unpopular wars. And they were right!
