To Sexist AP, HuffPo Inanely Bashing Palin Is More Important Than Helping Haiti

Every time I think that the “Press” can’t sink any lower than the rock bottom they’ve already hit, they somehow manage to burrow themselves further into the earth’s mantle. As is so often the case, this most recent gutter-dwelling example has to do with Sarah Palin, who dared to go on a humanitarian trip to Haiti. …
So, they fall back on sneering contempt, mixed with insanity and outright lies. … This again happened on Monday, when the AP ran this picture and caption:
Bristol Palin was fixing a loose clip or an errant strand of hair for her mother. The photographer quite clearly knew that, having taken the picture and having actually looked through the lens at the people whose photo he was taking. He managed to identify Todd Palin, yet purposely did not identify Bristol.
… The Daily Mail picked up on the “let’s totally lie to fit our delusional narrative” line with an article titled Ready for Her Close Up…Sarah Palin Lands in Haiti (where they don’t care what her hair looks like).
Michael Shaw at The Huffington Post went one further with one of the most dreck-filled “articles” I’ve read in a good while.
The MSM just don’t “get” that people can and will check up on their little tricks. Or that ProgSites like HuffPo or the Koslings will magnify and amplify their little tricks.
