The New York Times and The Washington Post aren't even trying to hide their bias against Governor Palin as they continue to drool over President Obama and his liberal agenda. Now they're actually asking their readers to help them investigate her emails in hopes of digging up dirt. What happened to journalistic ethics in this age of Obama Media Mania?
In an article called "Help Us Review the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records," The New York Times writes:
On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting on NYtimes.com starting on Friday afternoon.
We’re asking readers to help us identify interesting and newsworthy e-mails, people and events that we may want to highlight. Interested users can fill out a simple form to describe the nature of the e-mail, and provide a name and e-mail address so we’ll know who should get the credit. Join us here on Friday afternoon and into the weekend to participate.
No, this isn't a joke, although it certainly sounds like a sick one. The Washington Post is in on this also. Their article is very similar to the one run by Times. They call theirs "Help analyze the Palin e-mails."
Over 24,000 e-mail messages to and from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska's governor will be released Friday. That's a lot of e-mail for us to review so we're looking for some help from Fix readers to analyze, contextualize, and research those e-mails right alongside Post reporters over the days following the release.
We are limiting this to just 100 spots for people who will work collaboratively in small teams to surface the most important information from the e-mails. Participants can join from anywhere with a computer and an Internet connection.
Can any serious person really still deny the obvious Palin-Derangement Syndrome running rampant in the media? As numerous comments on New York Times articles states, where were these requests when there was a 2,700 page health care bill no one in Congress had time to read before passing? Where were they when America wanted to look into the President's radical associations? And I believe we've yet to see his college records, so where are those requests now to deal with that? They'd rather go digging through Governor Palin's emails, someone they try to convince us again and again is irrelevant--all while sticking microphones in her face, hovering over her hotel room in a helicopter, and chasing behind her tour bus. Is there any wonder Governor Palin calls them the lamestream media?
Stacy Drake has challenged Governor Palin's supporters to take these faux journalists up on their offer and get involved in their silly email witch hunt. If the haters can do it, I imagine she's thinking, why not those who know her to be a person of upstanding moral character? Click here to see details.
