Confirming that John McCain picked Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska, as his running mate, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos were quick to jump on the corruption within Alaska’s Republican party, but did not tell the whole story. George Stephanopolous noted that Senator Ted Stevens is under indictment and the state’s at large congressman, Don Young is "facing corruption charges is still in the middle of a recount for their Republican primary."
All of which are true, but Stephanopoulos, a former Clinton aide, did not reveal that Palin actually supports Don Young’s primary opponent. Stephanopoulos also does not seem to have the same concern about Chicago’s Democratic machine when covering Obama.
She has taken on ethics problems in her own party, even calling on Senator Ted Stevens to come clean.
Newsbusters also points out how "objective" newsman Matt Lauer at NBC found Palin to be a "staunch conservative" and a "stalwart conservative."
How often have you heard the "mainstream" media talk about the #1 and #3 most liberal members of the U.S. Senate (Obama and Biden, in case you missed it) as "liberal?" Yeah, you heard the crickets chirping when you listened for that, too, huh?
They know she's a dynamite choice, so they have to dredge up any excuse to make her look bad.
They must not have a lot of confidence in their oh-so-experienced media-approved candidate Barack Obama.
Is he just a "paper messiah?"
