Washington Post Leads Palin Boycott

Posted on | January 22, 2011 | 15 Comments

Being a professional Sarah Palin-hater worked out so well for Keith Olbermann, now Dana Milbank and the Washington Post join the parade — which looks a lot like lemmings going off a cliff.

UPDATE: Why they do it:

After days of relentless attacks by media across the fruited plain, Sarah Palin’s unfavorable rating hit an all-time high this week. …
From January 8 [the day of the Tucson Massacre] through January 16, CNN ran 80 stories that included the name of the former Alaska governor.
That’s roughly nine pieces per day, during which her name was mentioned approximately 664 times or over 70 times every 24 hours!

UPDATE II: William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:

Rarely do we get such a clear example of the bias of the mainstream media and the extent to which it fears and hates Sarah Palin.
But since she is “not electable” because of this media bias, we should throw Palin overboard and demand she not run and not be taken seriously by Republican voters, right?
Because Dana Milbank and the Editors of The Washington Post get to pick our candidates, right?
