What is truly staggering in the revelation that Governor Sarah Palin did not know Africa was a contintent or she could not name the countries in NAFTA is that we learn this AFTER the election.  The press is supposed to have a duty to this country.   What would have happened had McCain won?  Would the American media STILL be preserving the image of covering up the profound ignorance of Sarah Palin?

  1. I was so angry as this shit started coming out. This is why after nearly ten years in the press corps I’m considering filling out a McDonald’s application. I just can’t participate in this kabuki play for much longer.

    How truly unsettling that the press corps was aware of her staggering ignorance and said little of it to the American public. You know what… this is why “traditional journalism” needs to go ahead and finish its death throws. We’re gonna need hundreds, if not thousands, of grassroots-sponsored (obama style) journalists and columnists–people who barely make the rent but have just enough to pursue what should be a noble profession without the interference of the power players and their 1st Amendment duct tape.

    Btw, have you seen how crazy the Freepers are going?

  2. Palin was so profoundly dumb that her ignorance shined through in spite of efforts to shield the public.

    The press needs good guys, Manny. Don’t leave!
