I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised at this point in the game. It’s still sad.
ABC committed, in this citizen’s view and others’, some journalistic misconduct. You might have heard or saw some of this stuff in ‘teaser’ clips leading up to the interview, but you won’t find them in the September 11th airing. I know what you’re thinking,
“…but they edit every interview to improve flow… something always ends up on the cutting room floor…”
Perhaps. In this case, however, you lose a LOT of context and explanations from Gov. Palin. In fact, it rather surprised me how much was culled. Combine that with the searing laser of scrutiny the media is placing on Palin, the least they can do is allow us to hear her out in full.
Fortunately, one of my favorite talkers, Mark Levin, has the full, unedited transcript.
UPI couldn’t even stomach the bias and wrote, ABC’s Gibson grilled Palin hard, but it may backfire.
Read it all, make up your own mind.
