Gingrich, appearing on the Greta Van Susteren show, starts off by ripping CNN for the insulting, and out of context quote from NRO, that was repeated to Sarah Palin during a recent interview, for no other reason, it seems, than to hurt her feelings. The full quote from Byron York reads: “Watching the press coverage of the Republican candidate for Vice President, it’s sometimes hard to decide whether Sarah Palin is incompetent, stupid, unqualified, corrupt, backward, or – or, well, all of the above”. It was obviously meant to be an indictment of the press’s coverage of Palin.
Gingrich then goes on to liken the media coverage of this campaign to the dishonest reports written about Polish freedom fighter, Lech Walesa, by the Polish communists during the eighties.
And he’s just getting warmed up:
Gingrich makes a good point at the end of the interview where he talks about having his research staff watch all of Palin’s interviews to see if there are any examples at all of reporters asking her about her numerous accomplishments as Governor of Alaska. He suspects there will be 0 examples.
While the press has done its best to hide from America this able woman’s accomplishments, it has also done its best to hide from America any damaging stories about Obama, of which there are too many to count.
An obvious question for Obama, for instance, as I mentioned in my previous post would be: “Senator Obama, since, as the Chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, you donated millions of dollars to William Ayers, and Mike Klonsky’s Small Schools Workshop, would it be safe to say, you agree with their educational philosophy?
We all know that question has not been asked. Why not?
Does the media think that this nation’s parents wouldn’t be interested in the fact that Obama actively supported the radical educational projects of avowed Communists?

Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive is pissed at the media too, and, wow! Is he on a tear:
In what may be the sorriest attack of a sorry campaign by the NY Times wing of the Obama camp, they have a front page story about Sarah Palin’s freaking wardrobe. If she showed up in boots and Levis they would call her a hick. I would call that smokin’ hot. If she upgrades to the expected garb of the elites, she is mocked for spending the $$$$. What hypocritical douchebags the arbiters of life, the universe and everything are. You know what F**k the New York Times! They are a grotesque parody of a serious newspaper. The Onion can’t even rip on them because the paper’s own actions require willful suspension of disbelief.
At this point the Obama Nation has disgustipated me to the point that I do not give a rats ass about playing nice. I am going to spend the last days of this campaign like a political Caligula.
LOL. I’m going to have to add Blackfive to my blogroll, ’cause I don’t want to miss it.
For another glaring example of the American Pravda media in action, see Ace. I’m too upset about it to go into it, here.
Drew Griffin the CNN Reporter who interviewed Governor Palin, (mentioned above) has addressed the issue:
In no way did I intend to misquote the National Review. This exchange aired just once in the 6pm hour, and as soon as the National Review brought it to our attention at 7:05, we immediately realized that the context could be misconstrued, we cut that portion of the interview. It never aired again. We sent a statement to the National Review in an email explaining what had happened, that we had in fact cut the question from any further airings.
I’m glad he did what he could to rectify the situation, but I still think an apology is in order.
I was very disappointed to see that it was Griffin who asked that question, (in an otherwise fair interview). He’s been one of the few reporters outside of Fox covering the ACORN voter fraud stories, and he’s been doing an outstanding job of that.
National Review calls b.s and is not accepting Griffen’s “non-apology”.
