Palin to "Give the Media Credibility"

The video was dropped quickly from the FOX website, but when asked about her future plans, Sarah Palin said one thing she wanted to do was to "give the media credibility", which was a positive way of saying she wanted a cable show where she would hammer on media bias and give the bias of the other side.

Pundits were outraged at the suggestion that Palin could give them any credibility. Then, as I noted, the video was gone and FOX went back to telling stories from "anonymous sources" in the McCain camp making Palin out to be a witch with a capital "B".

Two points on this. One, Sarah Palin is 100% right that the media has no credibility in much of the country. They have a well-earned reputation for telling like it ain't. They are slanted in what they say and slanted in what they leave out.

The second point is, even Palin will have a hard time getting a TV show about this, if that is what she wants. She may think that the problem is the liberal culture of the journalists. That is only a part of it. The main problem is the global-corporate perspective of the media corporation's owners and management. It is no accident who they hire.

Do you remember when Matt Drudge got his successful TV show on FOX abruptly canceled because he was told by management to pull pro-life content from his show and he refused to do it? That was FOX, the one the conservatives falsely believe tells their side.

Yes Sarah Palin is exactly right that the media has little credibility. They are domestic enemy number one in this country. But none of them are going to give her a TV show to let the American people know that. Sadly, If she wants to do this, she will have to do it on YOU TUBE.

They gave Huckabee a FOX show, didn't they?

Mike Huckabee didn't play footsee with the Alaskan Independence Party. The two are not from the same cloth.

Mike Huckabee was a pro-life liberal. Let's see if Huck goes as far as Matt Drudge did in promoting the cause of life. He has not yet on the show, right?

Er. . . Mark, psst: it's "footsie" or "footsy", not "footsee". And I think the full metaphor is actually "cut from the same cloth."

Now, Palin will be a political superstar for years to come; millions adore her and she has the highest approval ratings of all 50 Governors. Appointing herself to the Senate, rather than hosting a talk show, could be her best move. If she does neither, however, she's still the AK Governor, and will likely be re-elected, if she chooses to run again. Look for her to (hopefully) resurface in a big way in 2012, Huckabee/Palin perhaps. If the economy continues to falter during the empty suit's first term, she can be a bona fide contender for POTUS, and at the very least, VPOTUS again. If the economy recovers by then, look for the empty suit to be re-elected.
