Newest MSM Affliction:
Palin Derangement Syndrome
Red Planet Cartoons
“There’s something about this lady that scares the left senseless. As if the left wasn’t already senseless.”
Red Planet Cartoons has already spotted the latest mental affliction to strike the financially-ailing MSM: Palin Derangement Syndrome. The Cartoon above is spot on.
RPC starts off with a little question from Thomas Sowell: Is the MSM 24/7 Palin attack frenzy a knock or a boost?
“The public’s right to know” is often invoked by the mainstream media, when what they are really talking about is the media’s right to smear those that they disagree with politically.
It is doubtful whether the public is half as obsessed with Sarah Palin’s daughter as CNN obviously is. Even before this particular story was hyped, CNN was among those in the media who had become something of a laughingstock for how they had gone overboard in favor of Barack Obama.
Increasingly, over the years, CNN has become less of a news reporting organization and more of a propaganda machine for liberal-left politics. Unfortunately, CNN is not alone.
It was not the newsworthiness of young Bristol Palin’s pregnancy that put it on the front page of the New York Times or interminably on the bottom of the screen at CNN. It was an opportunity for them to try to damage the political career of someone they disagreed with politically.
Red Planet add some clarifying links by Rich Lowry, Stephen Hayes and Michelle Malkin: The Four Stages of Conservative Female Abuse.
And there you have it: PDS boiled down into one easy-to-read post.
Even for pundits and the MSM.
I wonder if any of them will take the opportunity to read it?
