The blood libel against Gov. Palin by the left and its media stooges is being conducted so fast and furiously that NewsBusters' editors and contributors have been keeping busy just trying to document all the smears. A roundup:
Mark Finkelstein wrote Tuesday about MSPDS' Ed "Sergeant" Shultz suggesting that Sarah Palin's use of the term blood libel was "an appeal to an extreme Christian conservative base for 2012."Our thanks and admiration to all the good people associated with NewsBusters for keeping a wary eye on the corrupt, left wing, lamestream media.
Jack Coleman reports on leftist Bill Press appearing on fellow leftist Sgt. Schulz's show Thursday, saying Gov. Palin "looked like, like a Manchurian candidate."
Noel Sheppard catches MSPDS' Keith Olbermann bashing Sarah Palin on Tuesday for her silence on the Tuscon shootings and then bashing her on on Wednesday for not being silent.
Scott Whitlock watched "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos and reporter Claire Shipman fretting over Gov. Palin's use of the blood libel. He also caught NBC
reporterpropagandist Andrea Mitchell striking her usual condescending tone when reporting on the governor, this time over her video message. Mitchell saw fit to mention that Gov. Palin was "apparently reading from a Teleprompter," but doesn't seem to consider it newsworthy when President Obama does the same.
Matthew Balan observes that the PDS displayed by
Howard BealeJack Cafferty "reached a new level" on Thursday's Situation Room on CNN, as the Cellar News Network's resident curmudgeon attacked the Mama Bear for her reply to the smear merchants.
Jack Coleman found left wing Sirius talker Thomm Hartmann's criticism of Sarah Palin ("She hasn't come out of her cave up there in Alaska. Sarah bin Palin, should we call her?") peculiar, coming as it did after Gov. Palin released her video statement. Tongue in cheek, Coleman quipped that Hartmann's attempt to equate the governor with terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden is almost like implying that Alaska isn't part of America "You know, like Hawaii, for example."
Mark Finkelstein watched as Vichy Republican Joe Scarborough engaged in some wishful thinking aloud on Morning Joe, as he claims that Sarah Palin's response to the Tuscon shootings "probably ended her political career." Wish we had a buck for every time a Palin-hater has made such a pompous, premature pronouncement.
Ken Shepherd did a little research and finds it interesting that although MSPDS has slammed Gov. Palin for using the term "blood libel," the leftist network has not always found its use a matter of self-righteous indignation. According to Shepherd, "There was no reaction from MSNBC's Chris Matthews in 2000 when Jack Kemp used the term to describe a harsh radio ad the NAACP had used against then-Gov. George W. Bush (R-Texas), nor in 2006 when Mike Barnicle used the term in reference to Sen. John Kerry having been criticized by a group of Vietnam War swift boat veterans." Go figure. You'd think MSPDS was hypocritically singling her out or something.
