SANDBAGGED: CHARLES GIBSON MISQUOTES SARAH PALIN
Posted by PrestoPundit on 09/12/2008
in a “gotcha” interview with the GOP VP nominee. John Podhoretz and Ace have the details. And Tom Maguire has the back story. Gibson should be put on unpaid leave for a few days. That’s what they do with professionals in other fields, when an employee has grossly violated the basic rules of behavior within their line of work. Cop who’ve shot people or lawyers who’ve misrepresented people are put on suspension all the time. I’d like to see Gibson put on suspension for violating the basic journalistic principle to quote people correctly without gross distortion.
If you’d like to contact ABC News about the Gibson sandbagging of Sarah Palin, click here and send em’ a message. I did.
ALSO. And don’t miss this, the leftist AP once again over the top outrageous. No surprise that the reporter covering Palin for the AP is a contributor to leftist political organizations.
Yes, I said I’d be taking a break from blogging for a few days, and I will. But this had me outraged like I can’t remember being outraged by a newsman and a news organization. The MSM has the dishonest attack dogs on Palin, and I find it utterly unacceptable in a democratic nation.
How can our country survive if the press becomes so partisan and so unethical that the public is swimming in nothing but lies and deceit? The press this time has turned a corner and stepped into a zone of such dishonesty and partisanship that I don’t think the reputation of these organizations can ever by restored.
UPDATE II: Damage control at ABC News.
See also Gateway Pundit on how the media cover Palin vs. how the media cover Obama.
And Newsbusters shows that Gibson had all softballs for Barack Obama in Obama’s first big “I’m running for President” interview.
