Big Journalism joins chorus demanding retraction from Martin and Politico

Andrew Breitbart's Big Journalism joined a growing crowd Thursday demanding a retraction from leftist media hack Jonathan Martin for his pack of Politico lies smearing Sarah Palin:
In his piece today entitled “Sarah Palin is wreaking havoc on the campaign trail, GOP sources say,” Politico’s Jonathan Martin (who was tasked with the Republican Party beat for the website for the 2008 elections) falsely claims Sarah Palin backed out of a scheduled interview with talk-radio host Mark Levin:

"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."

Levin contested this claim on his Facebook page, and has asked Politico to retract this statement:

"This is a flat out lie. Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me. Period. And John Martin, the reporter, never contacted me to ask me directly. I insist on a retraction."

Red State seconded the request. Allow us to be third...

Welcome to the party, pal.

  1. I'm just some Joe public, but anytime there are lies in the media there needs to be immediate and deceive action on the part of the offending outlet. It's call integrity, which I think is something that was lost long ago.
