Palin's recent condemnations of the press are part of a broader war against the media by the McCain campaign.
Blaming the media has been a tried and true Republican tactic to rally their base, and -- judging from the derogatory chants of "NBC! NBC!" at the Republican National Convention it has worked like a charm.
I sent Chris the following e-mail.
Do you really believe that the chants of NBC! NBC! NBC! were a tactic to rally the base rather than a natural reaction to the rabid partisanship of Chris Matthews, Keith Olberman, etc at NBC?
Do you really believe that Palin's recent condemnations of the press are part of a broader war against the media by the McCain campaign rather than a response to the war that the media is conducting against McCain and Republicans?
I know that you probably do not accept this, but the mainstream media has become a virtual propaganda wing of the Democratic Party.
A READER AT A MAJOR NEWSROOM EMAILS: "Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in [A]rizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into [O]bama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and it's working."
Are you completely oblivious to how unethical the mainstream media is, and your reporting is a reflection of your obliviousness? Or, are your aware, and your reporting is a further reflection of that unethical behavior?
I doubt I will get a response, but if I do, I will certainly publish it.
