The media started attacking Palin as soon as she was nominated by John McCain to be vice president and they have continued ever since. Tina Fey's performances on "Saturday Night Live" got people to actually believe that Palin really did claim she could see Russia from her house.
Plus she is the obvious front runner for the GOP nomination in 2012. The next nearest is Mitt Romney, though he's painted as the "heir apparent", but,
his failure to repudiate his Massachusetts health-care “reform” disaster probably dooms his candidacy.
The rest of the field is just as problem ridden. But more importantly, the bias of the media is astounding!
Of course, Democrats are virtually immune from such coverage in the mainstream media. Barack Obama's intelligence is never questioned, even though he refuses to disclose his college or law school grades, but the list of his gaffes are almost endless. Obama uses a TelePrompter for a reason. Take him telling supporters on May 9, 2008: "I’ve now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii . . . ." But a Google news search shows only six news stories mentioning the "57 states" mention over the first three days (virtually all in conservative publications) and only 14 after a week.But then, that's the price you have to pay for not having the "right" politics.
Since becoming president, Obama has called Europe a country. He misspelled the city of "Syracuse" twice, even though the word was spelled correctly next to where he was writing it. And he said that the Constitution was written "20 centuries" ago, the FBI was founded "100 days" ago when he meant 100 years, "Austrian" is a language, breathalyzers are used to treat asthma, and that he is working hard to "halt the rise of privacy," not piracy. None of these cases got more than a few minor mentions in news stories in the months after the gaffe.
