What mockery can suffice for the latest Old Media epic fail on the subject of Sarah Palin? As many have noted, this is foremost The Narrative in action. One might also wonder how this story about a putatively irrelevant former politician on an obscure parody website came to the attention of the Washington Post in the first place. But hardly unexpected in an environment where the political directory for a major network news organization calls for the destruction of a major political party. Although reading any bias in to that is clearly just being hoodwinked by the right wing noise machine.
P.S. Let’s not forget the massive bias in covering the killing of an American Ambassador in Benghazi. A good quote
Yet President Obama avoided all of that [press criticism]. Indeed, it was Mitt Romney who incurred the special wrath of reporters for his criticism of a statement made by the American embassy in Egypt after the building was stormed by an angry mob (a criticism, by that way, that the Obama administration agreed with a few hours after Mr. Romney made it).
The Obama Administration lies massively about Benghazi, sends an innocent film maker to jail, and yet Old Media excoriated Romney for making an accurate statement, because that statement was critical of Obama. Yet I’m expected to believe that is not evidence of bias.
