This doesn't surprise me. Gregg Erickson, a reporter who covers Sarah Palin for McClatchy's Anchorage Daily News, says most reporters don't like Sarah Palin. Via Huffington Post:A reporter for the Anchorage daily, Gregg Erickson, even did an online chat with the Washington Post, in which he revealed that Palin's approval rating in the state was not the much-touted 80%, but 65% and sinking -- and that among journalists who followed her it might be in the "teens."
Erickson confesses 65% of Alaskan voters approve of Palin but less than 20% of journalists do. This is Dog Bites Man stuff -- plenty of studies show journalists are out of step with most Americans. I've blogged about this problem before.
Previous Palin flashback:
- Anchorage Daily News prints anti-Palin slam from Daily KOS, then deletes it
- Mark Shields: Sarah Palin is "callous for choosing ambition over her daughter"
Oh, please. Another whiny bit about the media not liking Sarah Palin. How about a whiny bit about how the conservatives don't like Obama. Or how McClatchy watch doesn't like McClatchy.
Be they liberals or conservatives, a crybaby is a crybaby. Grow a set, why dont you.
10:14... grow a set? From a metrosexual liberal? Grow a set? Hilarious.
I can't believe we're still wasting our breath talking about that ignorant, ignorant woman.
You don't need to be a liberal to dislike her. You just need to have half a brain.
The libs better get used to her, she's going to kick Obama's ass in the next election.
Yes, her unbelievable power was recently demonstrated in upstate New York.
While Obama's was demonstrated in Virginia.
Don't forget the awesome demonstration of The One's power in New Jersey.
Please nominate her. Please. As a lifelong Democrat, I beg you. We couldn't do better.
Hell, she may be a secret agent for us.
Please, Please nominate Palin. It'll be the biggest loss for the Republicans since they nominated Goldwater in 1964.
If she does get nominated you assholes in the liberal media are probably not going to be around to do your classically trained professional journalistic BS this time around.
Today she claimed the Democrats are screwing with the nation's coins! What's next? Protocols of the Elders of Zion? The Trilateral Commission? Attacks on iodized water?
Pleeeeeease nominate her.
I love how she makes these socialists pee themselves.
What in the world does growing a set have to do with dis-liking Palin. Is there a reason that the liberals reach for a sexual slur so quickly? Inadequacy? Anger? Self loathing?
There is something about Palin that just sets off the liberals in a special way. It's like she has a direct pipe into the liberal hate reactor. Their irrational hatred for Palin does tell us a lot about their fear of simple direct speech, clear thinking and traditional values. She sends the slime machine into overdrive.
Why else would there be a 60% spread in approval ratings for Palin among real people and liberal,pansy journalists?
They hate REAL Women
5:26 -- The "pansy journalists" you're referring to publish their opinions under their real names, rather than anonymously in the middle of the night.
Simple and direct enough for you, idiot?
9:12... no that's not quite right. Close. Journalists reporting "news" stories do so under a byline and, in fact, most of the time their "news" reporting would qualify for opinion reporting.
However, very few editorials, where opinion is suppose to be expressed, are signed by an individual in any paper.
No risk to a journalist to hate Palin. No risk at all.
Maybe "set-less" would have helped you see the connection to the first post, light weight.
No, I love Palin. Really love her. Please nominate her. Please o please o please.
She's a quitter who sold out for the money. Palin is simply not qualified to hold public office. Fox should just hire her to keep up their ratings.
Larry Flynt is doing pretty well with "Nailin' Palin." I think that bit of cinema speaks to the secret of her esteem among conservative suffering from male menopause.
Go Palin in 2012 and stop fluoridated water! Wake up, America!
Larry Flynt. Right. Mainstream boy there.
There is something about Sarah Palin that just makes the liberals go screaming crazy.
This thread proves it.
Actually, it's the moderates you have to worry about. They hate her, too. Actually, pretty much everyone hates her except you weirdos.
But, like I say, I encourage you to work hard for her nomination. Where can I send a donation?
Palin is a loser, look at the results of the upstate NY house race. She claims to hold the family in high esteeme, who takes care of the baby? If the GOP runs Gingrich/Palin, Huckbee/Palin, Perry/Palin, or any other two right wing nuts they will go down to a defeat worst than Goldwater in 1964.The defacto leader of the GOP(Limbaugh)wants the "ditto head" sheep that follows his insanity, to flush and purge the party of moderates and rinos. He will have nothing left but old southern whites. In the last election, Republicans lost Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Gays, Labor, Independents, Females and the Youth of the nation. The changing demographics are changing the political climate. The electorate will no longer stand for an obstructionist party of NO.
