“Where’s the News?” —Thom Hartmann

” Where’s the News?” — Thom Hartmann

As I could have predicted, the corporate mainstream media is falling all over themselves to congratulate Sarah Palin on her speech. The well known truth is that Palin’s speech has galvanized the conservative base. The media is not and most likely will not ask the tough questions like…

–Why does Sarah Palin continue to lie unchallenged by the media about her support of the “Bridge to Nowhere?”

–Why did Wasilla rarely received few any earmarks before Palin became mayor? She actively sought federal funds and hired a lobbyist with close ties to Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), who made funneling money to Alaska his hallmark.

–Why did Sarah Palin not walk out of her church when just two weeks ago, she sat there while her pastor gave a anti-Jewish sermon?

–While the McCain campaign has stressed her command of the National Guard – Why has Sarah Palin has never issued a single order to them?

–How do the American people sit with Palin’s claims that American soldiers have been sent to Iraq “on a task that is from God?”

–Why is Sarah Palin involved with AIP? Several days ago the chair of the AIP, a secessionist party, said that Palin attending the 1994 convention. “she was there.”

From www.mediamatters.org:

Neither ABC nor CBS aired analysis from Democrats, Democratic strategists, or progressive media figures during their live coverage of the second day of the Republican National Convention on September 2 (the first day of the networks’ live coverage of the convention). By contrast, both networks aired analysis from Republicans and conservatives, as well as from Democrats and progressives, during coverage of the second day of the Democratic National Convention on August 26.

Let the media know we’re sick and tired of the corporate and “conservative” bias that doesn’t serve, “We the People.”
