Leftist media sire hypocrisy

AWOL on Edwards, all over Palin

By Michael Graham
Thursday, September 4, 2008 –

When the story first broke that Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards had cheated on his cancer-stricken wife and sired a baby with a bimbo on his campaign payroll, The New York Times [NYT] refused to run it.

But when the news hit that not the president, not the vice president but the daughter of the vice-presidential nominee is pregnant, the Times ran five – count ’em, five – stories about it. In one day.

Edwards dragged his sick wife through the Iowa boonies and paid his girlfriend off in campaign dollars, and the Times decides it’s not worth writing about.

Meanwhile Bristol Palin is too young to even vote for Edwards, and she makes the front page of nearly every major daily that for weeks refused to report on the Edwards Love Child story.

But remember: There is no liberal media bias. Don’t believe me? Just ask Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews.

When the daughter of a vice-presidential candidate turns out to be 17, unmarried and pregnant, of course that’s news. But it doesn’t come close to legitimizing the all-out media assault (there is no other word for it) the press has unleashed on the Palins.

So-called “reporters” on CNN and MSNBC have speculated on Gov. Palin’s fitness as a mother. Sally Quinn from The Washington Post says that Palin should “rethink her priorities” and turn down the VP job. US Weekly – owned by the same people who put fawning faux-Jesus photos of Barack Obama on the cover of Rolling Stone – calls the Palin story “Sex, Lies and Scandal.”cw-4

Deeper in the fever swamps, Fox News’ token liberal Alan Colmes has suggested that Palin abused her youngest son Trig by denying him proper prenatal care.

And The Atlantic, once a respected, thoughtful voice of the American left, has actually promoted the lunatic – and utterly disproven – theory that Gov. Palin wasn’t pregnant with Trig at all. Trig is really Bristol’s son, and the governor of Alaska took time out of her schedule fighting against hack GOP congressmen and oil company insiders to fake a pregnancy on her daughter’s behalf.

According to Steve Schmidt of the McCain campaign, mainstream media organizations are demanding to see medical reports on Gov. Palin’s amniotic fluid and a DNA test on little Trig.

These aren’t the actions of bad journalists. These are the actions of bad people. From the set of MSNBC to the pages of The Boston Globe-Democrat, there are people willing to do anything to elect Barack Obama, up to and including the trashing of a 17-year-old girl.

But remember: Barack Obama is, as one San Francisco columnist put it, the “light bringer” who will heal our partisan divide.

It’s odd to hear liberal journalists who complained about the sexism of the Obama campaign now complaining that Gov. Palin won’t stay home and raise them babies.

It’s confusing to hear die-hard lefties like PBS’s Mark Shields releasing their inner Jerry Falwells to criticize Palin for putting “ambition” over her daughter’s well-being.

And it’s downright bizarre to read in the Boston Herald yesterday that our own U.S. Rep. Barney Frank believes the Palins’ private life is “fair game.” Hey, Barney – when you catch Bristol running a male prostitution ring out of the governor’s mansion basement, then we’ll talk.

Not to mention the Obama campaign sending out a press release attacking (erroneously, as is often the case) Gov. Palin for supporting “Nazi sympathizer” Pat Buchanan in 2000.

Gov. Sarah Palin: Lousy mom, trashy family and a Nazi. And you can read it all in The New York Times [NYT].

But remember: Don’t listen to talk radio. That’s hate speech.

End of Article –

Does everyone understand why the media will attack Gov. Palin and give John Edwards a pass?  They have chosen sides. Where is the coverage of Sen. Biden’s daughter getting arrested in the last couple of days? They can attack a 17 year old but not Sen. Biden’s adult daughter? The bias and sexism is as bad I can imagine. We only have to look at the two recent covers on the US Weekly to see how despicable it is. Under what conditions will this despicable media investigate the allegations that Sen. Obama engaged in gay sex and used cocaine with Larry Sinclair in 1999?   ZachJonesIsHome
