Unhinged McClatchy editor sends reporter to investigate loopy Palin conspiracy theory, blames other nutcases when Palin calls him out



When it comes to Sarah Palin, people at McClatchy seems to have thrown out journalistic standards. Latest evidence: The Anchorage Daily News sent a reporter out to investigate the loopy conspiracy theory that Sarah Palin is not the mother of Trig Palin.

Investigative reporter Lisa Demer was dispatched to look into whether Sarah Palin actually gave birth to Trig.  Demer talked to people in state government, medical people, the school district. I wouldn't be surprised if she went through through the dumpsters around Wasilla. When the word got back to Palin, her office issued a press release smacking down the nutcase rumor-mongers, including the Anchorage Daily News. From the press release:

"... Meanwhile, bloggers, the Atlantic magazine and even the Anchorage Daily News continue to give credence to the sensational allegation that the governor’s child, Trig, is not hers.

“As a public official, I expect criticism and I expect to be held accountable for how I govern,” Gov. Palin said. “But the personal, salacious nature of recent reporting, and often the refusal of the media to correct obvious mistakes, unfortunately discredits too many in journalism today, making it difficult for many Americans to believe what they see in the media.”
After Palin's smackdown, ADN executive editor Pat Dougherty (above) printed a lame response in the Anchorage Daily News.  First he said he never believed the rumors. Then -- and here's the choice part -- he blamed other nutcases for forcing his newspaper to do a story on the rumor.


"I want to be very clear on this: I have from the beginning and do now consider the conspiracy theories about Trig's birth to be nutty nonsense.

"If that's true, why has Lisa Demer been asking questions about Trig's birth?

"Because we have been amazed by the widespread and enduring quality of these rumors. I finally decided, after watching this go on unabated for months, to let a reporter try to do a story about the "conspiracy theory that would not die" and, possibly, report the facts of Trig's birth thoroughly enough to kill the nonsense once and for all."

So the paper tries to hype up a discredited rumor by doing a story on the rumor. And when called out by Palin, the editor blames nutcases for for forcing him to act like a crazy man. Isn't that beautiful? (Photo: Rich Jordan/KTUU-TV) Hat tip: email.

Yes, Anonymous 8:45 is here on and off throughout the day. Your blog is a great read, and I derive great satisfaction from it.

Each new day, when your Blog exposes more McClatchy smoke and mirrors I laugh.

And when some blindly bitter Marxist, soon to be ex-journalist, cries out how just unfair your Blog is, I also laugh.

When their was no internet, no other real outlet to act as checks and balances, and when they passed their bias filth off as journalism, I suppose they smugly laughed too.

Ironically though, and the sweetest irony, is that these dead heads will never understand why they are all going under. And for that, I laugh too. It’s the ultimate oxymoron.

But now that the end-game is oh so close now, (no pension, no benefits, company stock kissing zero, meager job prospects, no liberal stage to shout out onto), they aren’t laughing now. Are you? So you see, either way I laugh.

But I applaud your Blog for its “Truth to Power”, and for using your capitalistic skill to create new opportunities for yourself. I wish you the best.

So, the McClatchy idea of journalism, is tracking down a lie, so they can reinforce the lie, while denying the lie, was their lie?

Too bad that same due diligence was not applied to BO’s shady background, and his lack of qualifications, which were NOT lies.

Hey Jim, what's up? There's a contributor over at RedState from Alaska (he's not a Palin fan) and he says that all the ADN posters now are Outsiders, and that they've run off all the Alaskans who used to post over there (including him, I think) except for one or two. He's pretty annoyed about it, and pretty disgusted by their constant hate and attacks (and this from a guy who doesn't like her). I think that the ADN has been reading Trig Truther Central myself.

I feel sorry for Levi Johnston. I would not be surprised to see him exit this whole circus. He is still a teenager, and what young person would expect the media massacre of their family?

The story about his mother was discredited, his job allegations were discredited, but the damage has been done. As long as Gov. Palin is in politics, it will not matter where he goes, he will be news for the insane tabloids, masquerading as newspapers.

KaJo said...

Jim62sch,

1) That doctor you refer to has totally disappeared, vanished, hasn't been heard from since -- Sarah Palin's personal witness protection program?

2) The document that you refer to is cobbled together from an online Prov.HealthSystem logo, not prepared through Prov.HealthSystem (I used to work for PHS). The PFD that's been on the Internet shows printing that's not lined up with either the logo or the paper edge. No wonder there's doubt.

3) All anyone has done is "say" Palin is Trig's mother, and not a whole lot of them will actually commit themselves to that. Nothing certified (like a birth certificate).

4) There's a picture of Palin with Joe Parrish at a ServeAlaska swearing-in ceremony 4/10/08 that shows her stomach to be protruding about 3 inches less than it did in the "proof" pictures 4/13/08.

4) There are no pictures of Palin with her baby in the hospital bed 4/18/08 (like most mothers want for their scrapbook), no sign whatsoever 3 days later when she went to her office that she'd delivered a baby the size of a sack of sugar (you know, like "ouch" when walking?). There's a video available on YouTube.

5) There are no signs from the pictures that ARE available of the baby that he was premature on 4/18/08, and what doctor and parents in their right minds would discharge a premature DS baby the day after he was born???? Not even insurance companies and hospital discharge planning requirements would force this.

6) Despite all the third-hand information put forth about Bristol Palin's baby from relatives who haven't seen the baby themselves, there were no background baby noises from either Trig or Tripp in that Ziegler interview. He surely would have mentioned it if he'd seen the Tripp baby "in the next room".

There's a lot of smoke but no fire in Sarah Palin's claims about Trig, Bristol, and Tripp. And all of you seem to be suffering from smoke inhalation.

John A said...

The ADN has never been in favor of Gov. Palin, even before she decided to run for Governor.

But neither has it always been entirely against her. When the MSM of the "lower 48" was printing stories about her "soccer mom" lack of experience, the ADN criticised them and pointed out some of her hands-on experience - especially with respect to energy issues (eg, that pipeline the energy companies are building and using to say the one she negotiated to have a Canadian company build is therefore a wasteful and unnecessary gesture - as the ADN pointed out, the companies refused to even talk about the matter for over a decade - but six months after the Governor made it look like she might actually get one built, suddenly the companies announced they would build one...).

So, I would not be too quick to conclude that the ADN is NOT gathering evidence to abosultely and conclusively show the "It`s the other one`s kid" idiocy. After all, some of the MSM is still uncritically talking about the "plastic turkey" business.

Archer05 said...

ADN- Featuring Manufactured News

I was thinking of Dan Rather’s sidekick Mary Mapes. She slogged on for five years to find a forged document of a thirty year old record of P. Bush.

If the ADN loons dig and scrounge around long enough, someone will forge something for them. The deluded fools do not realize we are on to them.

An Alaskan blogger wrote that the whole Troopergate garbage was a union-driven, non-story to harm Gov. Palin. They also noted that the fact that these so-called troopers have sworn to uphold the law. I didn’t read that even one of these upstanding law enforcement officers found the gonads to tell the truth.

Why does it not occur to every sane person, that the extreme biasness of the media has shaped many more elections than we care to admit?

I regret that President Bush has been viciously attacked for eight years, and even now, it is mostly bloggers that are holding the MSM’s corruption up to the sunlight.

What the ADN is doing represents just a tiny iceberg in a ocean of disgrace, but the USS McClatchy is steaming full speed ahead, right toward the big one.

There are a lot of problems with your article! First of all, it is NOT a "LOONY theory" nor is the reporter who went "LOONY" nor is the editor. You sound more loony then them!!! I am slightly joking in this last sentence. The point is, how do you know that the rumors about Trigg and Tripp are not true? If you know, then you are one of the only ones who know the real circumstances of their births because the Palins have not been forthcoming in making the facts public. They could VERY EASILY in two seconds stop all rumors by doing a few things, yet they choose not to? To me, that is the looniest of the loons!

Why the questions about the Palin babies in the first place? Why are loons so interested in this birth certificate, but not Obama’s origin of birth? Rather loony I would say.

Palin’s baby has nothing to do with her being eligible to be VP, but Obama being born in Kenya makes him ineligible to be president of the USA. Rather odd to obsess on one, and ignore the other. Loony, I would think so. The ADN is a sleazebag, normal folks have figured that out, but then loons need someplace to loonisize together.

It does seem a bit odd to have all this negative attention focussed on a woman who has, by all accounts, the highest approval rating of any governor in the country, and no curiosity at all about the birth or business and political dealings of the man we've just elected as President. As the Democrats like to say, it's not the nature of the evidence, it's the seriousness of the charge. If Sarah Palin lied about being Trig's mother, it might have some affect on the people of Alaska. Who else really cares? If Obama and his family lied about where he was born, and lied about his involvement with a wide variety of rumored shady business, it affects the whole country because he is about to be President. What kind of other shady dealings is he going to be doing?

The Anchorage Daily News has become just a shell of a newspaper. Everyone knows they are just another arm of the McClatchy Democrats. Hopefully the people of Alaska that will not stand for lies and deception that are foisted on them in the name of news reporting.

There were long standing suggestions that ADN was sitting on a story re: Trig Palin birth. Now, contradicting their previous denials of this, it seems they did in fact send out a reporter to check it out.

The way I'm reading this post from ADN editorial is a message to SP that she should deal with this, or they will publish whatever they've got. If they can't confirm that SP actually gave birth to Trig in April '08, that would be very unusual. Has any person heard SP say that she "gave birth" to Trig Palin in April? Or have they only heard her say she is "his mom"? Semantics much?

SP could put this to bed so quickly, so why doesn't she? I hope her supporters will request that she do so. A signed statement from Dr. Baldwin-Johnson stating that she attended SP at Mat Su Regional Med Center on 4/18/08 as she gave birth to baby boy, Trig Palin - and naming those also present in the delivery room would certainly stop this discussion and represent absolutely no violation of privacy whatsoever. So where is the good doctor?

Anonymous said...

Governor Palin repeatedly states that reporters do not 'take that extra step' and verify information. She states that they can simply ask her or her representatives and they will receive a response. OK.

Will someone ask her then:
1. Will you ask Dr. Baldwin Johnson to make a statement: "I, CBJ, attended Sarah Palin at Mat Su Regional Medical Center on 4/18/08 as she gave birth to her son, Trig Palin."
2. If no, why not?
3. Does she want this gossip to end for her sake and the sake of her daughter and family?
4. If so, why doesn't she simply end it with a factual statement: Why doesn't she actually say that she "gave birth to Trig Palin on 4/18/08 at Mat Su Regional with Dr. Baldwin Johnson in attendance"?

I hope for her sake, the sake of her daughter and family and her political future, that Governor Palin will end this gossip once and for all with the above statement. A licensed physican attesting to being present in a delivery room along with others would stop this in its tracks.

And that Sarah and Bristol both had their babies before they changed the policy? And that therefore the change doesn't actually affect or have anything to do with them.

Yeah, they do a terrible job of moderating their comment sections. I read a comment at RedState some time back that the ADN doesn't have anyone moderating full-time (or even part-time). If they get a bunch of 'abuse reports' on a comment then they'll look at that comment, but other than that they don't police it at all. The guy who explained that also said that the ADN was bragging about their page hits during the campaign (which can be chalked up to interest in Palin, of course). He' an Alaskan who used to post over there a lot, and he is pretty ticked at them about all that (and he doesn't even like Palin). Someone else over at RedState mentioned that the ADN might be getting hits, but that he bets that they aren't getting the 'click through' ad revenue that they want. They've created a community of trolls and they're not even getting much revenue for it. It seems like they haven't figured that out yet.

Who called Patty Dougherty a d-bag? Isn’t that some kind of tool for rinsing any body cavity?

Maybe sifting through dumpster garbage revealed all sorts of newsworthy things. His next story could be about a condom found outside the ADN office. Who knows what sinister DNA lurks there?

Howard Weaver worked there once. Patty, don’t be going and upsetting the Howard. Dump your stock and leave jerk, only a fool is still in that cesspool.

I would bet, of course not real money like Howard Weaver did, that the whacko posting here is not even from Alaska.

Unhinged Dougherty says, “..the widespread and [enduring quality] of these rumors.”
---------------
I ask: So, why not print the name or names of the [enduring quality] that voiced these rumors, validate the sources. Is he afraid of a lawsuit? I am guessing it would be sourced from loony blog pages.

Unhinged Dougherty says: “I finally decided, after watching this go on unabated for months, to let a reporter try to do a story about the ["conspiracy theory that would not die"]
---------------
I ask: So, why would the conspiracy theory not die? Was it because the ADN repeatedly reported on the loony conspiracy theory?
-------------
IMO, it is way past time to flush these vile ‘Elect Obama’ conspirators down the drain.

How about the conspiracy theory that Obama is a Muslim? The nutcases wouldn’t stand for that unsubstantiated rumor to continue. Obama’s father was a Muslim, and unnamed sources say if you are born to a Muslim, you are a Muslim. You can choose not to practice your religion, but it does not change the fact that you are a Muslim. Perhaps the fraud editor in Alaska can send out a teenybopper to check on that rumor?

A poster here said “Buh-bye b*tches!” That is probably more right than we know. Feminist hags are the ones with the unhinged Palin hatred. They can’t stand it, she is the total package. She could look like she does if she was a lesbian, mind you, but to have MEN say she was hot, the feminists of ugliness couldn’t abide that, mind you.

Isn't that ADN rag all but shut down? I hope the folks in Alaska just say no.

The first poster here called this blog “irrational McClatchy-hating.” In fact,
McClatchy Watch was brings attention to the irrational Palin-hating ADN. That just shows you what a nutjob-whacko that first poster is. Like another poster commented, “They can dish it out, but they can’t take it.”

Here’s some rumors, Sarah Palin is the best liked governor in the USA. Her approval rating is 80%. Alaska doesn’t need a bailout.

Get on these rumor loon and loonier editor. Send out a nutcase to check it out. Preferably into the outback region where there is deep snow. Al Gore forgot to tell Alaskans that global warming would keep them warm.

Is the dirtbag ADN editor still taking heat from his readers? We need an update.

Gary Pruitt Bluitt, will not admit that their slanted news lost them many readers. So long, MNI.

The ADN is starting their next political attack on Gov. Palin using drivel like we witnessed by the editor of this sorry rag. This time there will be bloggers ready to counterattack right from the get go. After newspaper are extinct, it will be time to work on the biased new reporting on the alphabet TV networks.

Archer05 said...

The ADN Palin bashing stories had so many comments that ranted about Gov. Palin’s judgment being suspect because she did not have an abortion of a “retarded” child.

That certainly illustrates the disgusting rumor mongering the newspaper encouraged. Newspaper Death is the only sure cure for their serious Palin derangement disease.

The editor has now doubled down on his idiocy, publishing the full text of Governor Palin's e-mail complaint.

Jim62sch,
I copied your post to the ‘Got News or a Question’ section. I am not believing that editor is for real. I do appreciate your updates. McC. W. may have something to say about this information.

More than 4 months later:

Many more photos have surfaced showing SPalin to be flat-stomached right up to the week before she supposedly "delivered" TriG. The pictures from the March 1, 2008 Iditarod are especially revealing. Seven months pregnant? Are you kidding me???

More and more evidence is surfacing showing that SPalin has suborned nearly every department of the executive branch of Alaska government. The Personnel Dept. The Dept. of Law. The AG's office. The Dept. of ETS.

She's pissed off Alaska Republicans and Democrats alike, in Juneau, Anchorage, and the rural parts of Alaska with her political games, her bait-and-switch with the federal stimulus money for energy conservation. That may well be the "nail in the coffin" rather than that picture from March 26, 2008.

She continues to pander her family as celebrities for money, seeking and getting publicity in celebrity rag mags. You don't see other, more functional governors doing this.

Funny thing about the Esquire write-up on Todd, there's a rather too-revealing quote from Granddad Chuck Heath -- again, he's said too much, like he did when he blurted out the "her water broke" comment back in April 2008.

See, four months after this blog entry there's even MORE unrest in Alaska about the governance of Sarah Palin.

And everyone who's not a right-wing so-called "Christian" Evangelical is laughing at the prospect of Sarah Palin and her ghostwriter producing a book that's worth the price of all the trees that will be destroyed in order to print them.

But we libruls know how you conservatives feel about conservation -- you'd rather burn a book than recycle it.
