Getting a media borking, Part 2,347

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t consider Sarah Palin to be the ideal presidential candidate for constitutional conservatives.  So my remarks on her continuing abuse by the media are not a circumlocution for “Run, Sarah, run!”

No, the complaint really is that the mainstream media go convulsive at the sight of her, and throwing integrity aside, they will use any excuse they can find to trash her as a dunderhead.  The recent headline from CBS is revealing, “Sarah Palin Mistakenly Calls North Korea an ‘Ally’.”

The context shows Palin merely misspoke on one occasion during a lengthy interview with Glenn Beck.  Anyone who heard the interview or read the transcript would have no doubt that Mrs. Palin certainly knows which Korea is which.  But CBS, with an institutional dagger raised against conservatives, depends on most Americans not taking the time to get the full context.  Truth is, many people get their news in headlines with the depth and nuance of bumper stickers.  Millions of people will read headlines like this one from CBS and draw the conclusion CBS’ leftwing handlers want them to draw: The woman is a nitwit.

This has been going on for so long that the mainstream media has earned for itself that level of credibility formerly reserved for Soviet propagandists: zero.  That’s why the ABCNBCCBSCNN alphabet serpent has shrunk year after year.  Nobody believes them any more.  Nobody trusts them.  It’ll be a great day when they either repent of abusing their public trust with this sort of agitprop… or their enterprises all shrink to zero and, like Newsweek, get sold for their true worth of one dollar.
