Palin’s Love for the Media

Sarah Palin’s appearances on Fox News are understandable but guest host, interviewer, and interviewee on NBC’s Today Show?! What’s up with that? They need work on their ratings? At least Palin is predictable—self-serving and ignorant.

Before the show: Palin said that it doesn’t make any difference if any GOP vice presidential candidate has national level experience or not. “They’re going to get clobbered by the lamestream media.” Is that a reference to Katie Couric, guest host of ABC’s Good Morning, America at the same time as theToday Show?

Advice for picking a running mate: “Don’t play it safe, that is, somebody who is just going along to get along–who’s not willing to go rogue and shake it up,” Palin said. Does that mean “rogue” like Palin? Does she want the Republicans to lose?

Realty television shows: Palin wants the marketplace to see new ones that are the antithesis of the current crop. Would those be like the one in which Palin’s daughter plans to star?

Focus on Palin: She asks other panelists, “Do you have experience of people being paid a lot of money to pretend they’re you?” Let’s move the subject back to Palin because the topic was about Ashton Kutcher being cast to play Steve Jobs. She points out that she hasn’t seen Game Change, an HBO movie about Palin because “I don’t want to waste my time on…lies.”

Romney as Republican presidential nominee: Matt Lauer asked Palin twice if she was “happy with Romney as her party’s nominee. Twice because her only response was that “anything but Obama” would be better. Lauer decided not to try a third time to get a more ringing endorsement—or truthful response.

Overall she did a better job than she did a few weeks ago when discussing President Obama on Fox News’ Sean Hannity Show. She accused the president of taking people back before the Civil War, the war that she said created equal opportunities for everyone and did away with “different classes, based on income, based on color of skin.”

Palin missed the century after the Civil War with its Jim Crow laws preventing blacks from voting and allowing lynching, with the segregation that kept blacks in oppression, with the few extremely wealthy and the millions of people in severe poverty, with suffrage only for men. “Why are we allowing our country to move backwards instead of moving forward with that understanding that, as our charters of liberty spell out for us, we are all created equal?” asked the woman who wanted to be vice-president.

One thing that Sarah Plain understands is the importance of media. Perhaps she recognizes the need to make up with the “lamestream” media to move ahead because  she can’t get where she wants with only Fox News. The presidential nominees for 2012 seem pretty much determined even if Rich Santorum keeps trying, but the 2016 field is wide open.  Yet Ann Coulter has said that Palin is promoting the idea of a brokered Republican convention because she wants to be considered for the GOP nomination.

It has been said that there is no such thing as bad media. That statement, however, may not be true for all politicians. And not for Palin.
