Sarah Palin Calls Out Washington Post
While I’m not a particular fan of Palin’s at this point, she still makes some valid points. I this case, she takes on the Washington Post for failing to investigate the Obama scandals
To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.
One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”
The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.
Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.
That should be a challenge to every media outlet. Without using the word “wusses”. Sometimes, the folksy language can go a bit too far. I also believe she should have left the impeachable offenses mention out of the post. Regardless, she’s barking up the wrong tree, because there will be no true nor dogged investigations by the Washington Post nor any other Leftist news organizations as long as Obama is President. They’ll continue to be apologists, and, at best, chiders of Obama. They will not do anything that harms Obama nor damages Democrats.
BTW, she’s also going to launch her own on-line video channel, which will require a subscription of $9.95 a month.
In 2008, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) was smeared as a Klansman by his opponent. That didn’t stop Cohen for dusting off the smear this past week — along with namedropping Kristallnacht — against the Tea Partiers.
