    Rush reads LI post about Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher

    On Thursday Rush Limbaugh read from my post about the false accusation spread by The Guardian newspaper in Britain that Margaret Thatcher was refusing to meet with Sarah Palin because of a dislike of Palin:

    I heard Rush live when he announced your site! Very exciting. You’re on our Home Page tabs because we check you every day. Thank you for your hard work and insights!

    I like the new site, Bill, and I imagine there will be some growing pains. The upshot, though, will no doubt be a significant improvement, if for no other reason than the inherent limitations with the former format.

    Congratulations!

    And, on topic, good for Rush! Exposure of just one more in a long line of examples of a willingness on the part of some in the press to publish fiction to try to destroy someone, and to get away with it in the MSM.

    I posted this, with respect to the recent attention “lavished” on Sarah Palin during her tour in the northeast.

    But the drama continues! It is, in a Hemingwayesque manner, “a moveable feast,” with nasty boys like Keller incapable of understanding that doing things like the mass-posting of, and open enlistment of the help of the general public into “gotcha squads”, in order to read through 13,000 Sarah Palin emails from her term as Governor to find something to trash her with is, well . . . un-American. It just is.

    And the fact that it all ended up as a wild goose chase, and that they failed to find anything, probably should have been a hint to Keller that maybe something was wrong with the course he and his predecessors have led his newspaper and other media businesses on over time. Wouldn’t you think?

    No way! In one of the bitchiest, and most candid press screeds I can ever recall reading, Bill Keller, the outgoing Executive Editor, and incoming regular Sunday columnist for the New York Times has openly expressed his views on why he and others in the press indeed hate Sarah Palin.

    He begins with the assertion that:

    “If the 2012 election were held in the newsrooms of America and pitted Sarah Palin against Barack Obama, I doubt Palin would get 10 percent of the vote. However tempting the newsworthy havoc of a Palin presidency, I’m pretty sure most journalists would recoil in horror from the idea.”

    You betcha, Bill! But we knew that. Why not instead tell us that green plants contain chlorophyll? Or, you could admit that you folks at the New York Times have displayed a consistent and hostile anti-Republican bias over the years, including having endorsed John McCain over his chief primary rival during the 2008 primary season, and then turned around and published a fundamentally dishonest and personal hack job on the man, once he secured the Republican nomination?

    Perhaps the average reader would be somewhat less likely to know either one or both of those things. And, therefore, you would be performing an informative public service for at least those few people!

    Open and consistent media bias against Republicans, conservatives, and Tea Party supporters is a massive and I think dangerous social problem in our country. Highly personal animus displayed toward folks like Sarah Palin is a manifestation of that larger problem.

    And, it is a problem that is obviously not being addressed by many in the mainstream media in anything like a balanced manner, least of all by nasty partisans like Bill Keller.

    Having failed miserably to “get her” with his email fiasco, Keller has apparently now decided that “this is personal” and has launched this latest attack.

    Sorry for the inadvertent “double first graf,” above. Gee, I really did mean it, but not to the extent of feeling like I had to say it twice! Heh!
