Sarah Palin is back on the attack against her nemesis, the “lamestream media.” Only a day after she announced that she was done complaining about the unfair media, she talked about the media again. And this time she used her slogan that got her into so much trouble following the Tucson shooting-she said she was ready to “reload.” In a Facebook post entitled, “Lamestream Media: Reload or White Flag?” Palin, or really her aide that writes her Facebook notes for her, begins the war with the media again.
“Friends, too often conservatives or Republicans in general come across as having the fighting instinct of sheep. I don’t,” Palin wrote last Thursday. “I was raised to believe that you don’t retreat when you’re on solid ground; so even though it often seems like I’m armed with just a few stones and a sling against a media giant, I’ll use those small resources to do what I can to set the record straight. The truth is always worth fighting for. Doing so isn’t whining or ‘playing the victim card’; it’s defending the truth in fairness to those who seek accurate information. I’ll keep attempting to correct misinformation and falsehoods about myself and my record, and I will certainly never shy from defending others who are unfairly attacked. This is in the name of justice.”
She went on to try to clarify her position and reframe her battle with the “liberal’ media.
“We must always remember the big picture. The media has always been biased. Conservatives – and especially conservative women – have always been held to a different standard and attacked,” Palin said. “Let’s just acknowledge that commonsense conservatives must be stronger and work that much harder because of the obvious bias. And let’s be encouraged with a sense of poetic justice by knowing that the ‘mainstream’ media isn’t mainstream anymore. That’s why I call it ‘lamestream,’ and the LSM is becoming quite irrelevant, as it is no longer the sole gatekeeper of information.”
Palin also addressed, somewhat indirectly, an insult directed at her by Bill Maher over the weekend, in which the comedian called her a “dumb twat.” When asked on Fox News about the incident, Palin declined to comment and instead said she was done whining about the media. However, on her Facebook page, she could not resist. “I won’t bother responding to it though, because it was made by he who reminds me of an annoying little mosquito found zipped up in your tent; he can’t do any harm, but buzzes around annoyingly until it’s time to give him the proverbial slap.”
Again, I ask—does Palin realize she is employed by the media??
