Why won't media rebut Sarah Palin's hypocritical attack?

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

What do this Associated Press article, this CNN report, this Washington Post article, this Politico article, and countless other news reports have in common?

They all quote Sarah Palin's resignation-speech attack on the news media: "how about, in honor of the American soldier, you quit making things up"

And none of them point out that Palin herself has a famous history of "making things up." Like her claim to have said "thanks but no thanks" to Congress' attempts to inflict a "bridge to nowhere" on her state.

Sarah Palin, who has a lengthy history of making things up, basically accused the news media of dishonoring dead American soldiers by ... making things up. And the media typed up her words, not daring to point out the utter hypocrisy of her sanctimonious attack. An attack on them.

Don't they have any self-respect?
