Trib Hit Piece on Palin

Wow. Who do they go to for quotes. Mark McKinnon, the guy who fell for Barack Obama along with the rest of the smart set:
Mr. McKinnon had told friends, and some journalists, that he did not want to be part of a hard-fought campaign against such a historic candidacy. In his interview with Cox, he had said of Mr. Obama: “I think he has a deep character and good judgment. I also think he’s wrong on some fundamental issues. But I believe he is honest and independent.”
Nicole Wallace, whose friendship with the snotty, silly Katie Couric paved the way for her openly hostile interview of Palin.

And David Frum, described as a conservative. Well, he thinks he's one. But he now makes a living with the left by trashing conservatives, particularly Sarah Palin, since she's been out front rallying the principled opposition to The One.

As for Gawker, doesn't the Trib follow the news?
Indeed, Palin can dominate the news cycle with a simple tweet, something she did regularly before the midterm election. But as recently as last week, she was making waves. On Thursday, she tweeted, "This publishing world is LEAKING out-of-context excerpts of my book w/out my permission? Isn't that illegal?"

She was instantly mocked. "That last tweet [by Palin] sums up in 140 characters why this person should never be allowed any authority over any police force ever," Frum tweeted.
No mention of the judge knocking back Gawker. Oh wait--the Trib truncates the last two paragraphs in their print edition, it's mentioned online. How blatantly biased and irresponsible. More background on that Gawker attack. Who's the fool.

Here's some balance, since the Trib didn't give you any. Sarah Palin on Hannity last night.
