Politico Lying about Palin Again?

Radio host Mark Levin says that Politico’s piece slamming Sarah Palin today is an outright lie, at least as far as his part in the story is concerned.

In a long piece by Jonathan Martin about how he thinks Sarah is wrecking havoc on GOP politics across the country, he says this

According to a source familiar with the situation, she backed out of planned interviews with conservative talk-show hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin the morning she was scheduled to talk to them. And her multiple schedule changes so annoyed Glenn Beck that he finally decided not to have her on his radio or TV show to promote the book.

Levine says that this is flat out untrue. On his Twitter feed, Levine wrote:

This is a flat out lie. Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me. Period.

One wonders why Martin didn’t actually practice proper journalism and check out the claims of his “source familiar with the situation” and call Hannity and Levine and see whether or not it was true from their perspective?

So much for “journalism,” eh?

On her Twitter feed, Governor Palin tsked Mr. Martin:

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny…ya just made big mistake lying about Levin, Beck, Rush…U can lie about me, but taking on the Big Guns? Not smart

She cracks me up.
