Palin: Free Press Threatens 1st Amendment

Sarah Palin:

“If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations,” Palin told host Chris Plante, “then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.”

That’s right, the biggest threat to our First Amendment rights is a free press.  George Orwell would be proud.  And appalled.

    That’s why Obama kicks people in the press he don’t like from his plane.

    Plain and simple libtard! fascism.

    Good God, she’s stupid. And, Puddy, you don’t get the distinction, in First Amendment terms, between what Palin said and what Obama supposedly did with regard to his plane, do you? I’m amazed the last few Republicans surviving even remember that they’re supposed to breathe, eat, and shit everyday to maintain their survival. They’ll need endangered species status after this election.

    @3: McCain kicks people off the plane, too (cf. Joe Klein), but most importantly, you managed to MISS the point entirely.

    Yeah, a free press would be nice…

    But we have the Obama choir instead.

    Speak truth to power, get the Joe the Plumber treatment.

    Your editorial board picks McCain, your beat reporter gets tossed out of the plane. Net result: “pour encourager les autres.”

    VDH sums it up:

    “The story that the media chose to ignore was not merely the Obama about-face on public financing, or even the enormous amounts of money that he has raised — some of it under dubious circumstances involving foreign donors, prepaid credit cards, and false names. Instead, they were absolutely quiet about a historic end to liberal support for public financing.

    For all practical purposes, public financing of the presidential general election is now dead. No Republican will ever agree to it again. No Democrat can ever again dare to defend a system destroyed by Obama. All future worries about the dangers of big money and big politics will fall on deaf ears.”

    So a President Palin would only go on FOX for her addresses, Rush Limbaugh would be her press secretary and the only newspapers left in the country would be the Washington Times and the New York Post. Which we will be allowed to read once we swear out an oath of allegiance to the Queen of the United States.

    Sarah Palin is a dangerous woman. There are plenty of folks who line up behind her, Puddy, Cyniclown and MTR would be happy to be her generals. Fortunately the American public is smarter (finally) than the Republicans have given us credit for. To their utter and complete downfall on Tuesday.

    I early voted for Obama and clean slate of Dems. In one race here only a Republican was running for a house seat. I withheld my vote.

    Dear Sarah,

    In this country (for now anyway) you can say pretty much anything you want about your opponent and ask all the “do you still beat your wife” questions you can think of.

    In return, the press, whose job is to vet and then inform the public, is allowed to do just that. They can call you stupid, mean, uniformed, intellectually bankrupt and/or a fool.

    If you are “afraid” of the press’s reaction to the absurd comments and charges that you have made, well, perhaps you should think before you speak. The fear you have is of being caught, found out and exposed.

    We have nothing to fear from our press. It is a good thing that our government is a little bit afraid of the press. Keeps it less dishonest.

    I understand your disapproval rating has risen to 30% in your home state. You won’t get them back and reelection at this point is beginning to look like a lot less than a sure thing. And with the price of oil dropping, you won’t have the excess oil money with which to buy votes. In fact, you will be facing a nice budget shortfall. You betcha’!!

    Good luck in 2012. President Obama and his political advisers can’t wait. You are going to end up looking like one of those wolves you shoot from the sky.

    Sincerely,

    MLF

    Very odd … have heard not a word from McPalin about their plans to amend and upend the First Amendment by reviving the (un)Fairness Doctrine. Perhaps that’s because it’s the intolerant illiberal left that wants to use “fairness” as an excuse for smothering us with smelly leftist orthodoxy.

    Only one wedge of Big Media tries to talk truth or talk trash to left-wing tyranny, and left-wing tyranny will try in 2009 to shut down that little wedge of free speech.

    Yup. The press is owned by rich Republicans who display their bias right on the front page. See, e.g., Seattle Times coverage of Burner’s economics degree and Seattle Times editorial endorsing a gubernatorial candidate who has a shady background, is embroiled in a fundraising scandal, makes outlandish promises (e.g., he can build an 8-lane 520 bridge for $1 billion less than a 6-lane bridge costs), flings vile smears at his opponent, and has all the wrong priorities for our state. Ah, but he’s against the inheritance tax, and that’s all that matters when the family that owns the newspaper is worth $450 million.

And what he ranted about was that Bill Gates would be eligible for Medicare. Rush spent over an hour talking about Bill Gates, but never once mentioned the millions of elderly Americans who have to choose between buying food or medicine. That isn’t “smart,” it’s dishonest. Any cheap crook can be as dishonest as Rush, it takes no skill at all. And who gives a fuck if Bill Gates gets Medicare? Whatsamatter, doesn’t Gates pay enough taxes to satisfy Rush? If you think that demagogue is “smart,” you’re even stupider than your buddy thinks you are.

    Today’s Polls, 10/31

    Is Pennsylvania John McCain’s last, best hope?

    Perhaps it is. But that speaks as much to McCain’s problems elsewhere on the map as any success he has had in the Keystone State. Pennsylvania does seem to be narrowing a bit: the Muhlenberg / Morning Call tracker is now down to “only” a 10-point lead for Senator Obama, while a Strategic Vision poll puts the race at O +5. Strategic Vision has had a Republican lean and some very erratic polling in Pennsylvania all year, so our model treats that result as the equivalent of a +7 or a +8. Nevertheless, with little progress being made elsewhere, McCain will take what he can get.

    Indeed, unlike other recent days, there is no good news for McCain in the national tracking polls. McCain gained a point in the Rasmussen tracker; the other seven all moved toward Obama, although by mere fractions of a point in the cases of Zogby and IBD/TIPP.

    As we alluded to this morning, the numbers from PPP out of Colorado and New Mexico, which used very large, list-based samples, are awful news for McCain in states where majorities of the electorate have already voted. Contrary to Rick Davis’s assertions, there is absolutely no reason to conclude that McCain is competitive in Iowa, and there is a slew of evidence that Obama is on track to win New Hampshire, even if the UNH Tracking Poll is now coming a bit off its outlier-ish numbers. Ohio is another big problem for McCain. Except for the Strategic Vision poll, everything else we’ve added to the database over the past several days shows Obama with leads ranging from 3 points to 16 (though the latter result, from Ohio University, looks very much like an outlier). In North Carolina, which seemed to be tightening last week, Obama now appears to be holding on to a very small lead, and much of that state has voted too.

    Trick or Treat

    Do you spook easily?

    Judging by the response in my inbox, some of you do.

    Matt Drudge is touting the results of a one-day sample in a Zogby poll, which apparently showed John McCain ahead by 1 point.

    There are a couple of significant problems with this.

    Firstly, there is a reason that pollsters include multiple days of interviewing in their tracking polls; a one-day sample is extremely volatile, and have very high margins for error.

    Secondly, the Zogby polls have been particularly volatile, because he uses nonsensical party ID weightings, which mean that his weighting process involves making numbers doing naughty things that they usually don’t like to do.

    Thirdly, Zogby polls are generally a lagging rather than a leading indicator. This is because he splits his interviewing period over two days; most of the interviews that were conducted in this sample took place on Thursday night, with a few this afternoon. The reason this is significant is because lots of other pollsters were in the field on Thursday night, and most of them evidently showed good numbers for Obama, as he improved his standing in 6 of the 7 non-Zogby trackers.

    Finally, there was no favorable news for McCain to drive these numbers. Polls don’t move without a reason (or at least they don’t move much).

    So go out to your Halloween parties and enjoy yourself, and we’ll be back to covering the polls for you tomorrow.

    @87, it had something like 33.6 million viewers total. That’s only 4.8 million viewers per network that had the 30 minute show on so I’m sure you can find something to twist around to an untruth to make yourself feel better.

    Palin’s obvious lack of knowledge about the Constitution doesn’t really matter to her supporters though. Few of them have read the Constitution.

    @87 “Anyone seen the ratings on Wednesdays obama commercial. When it’s bad news the media skips the report.”

    For those who bother to read newspapers, this information was reported on Thursday.

    For those who live under logs, I’ll repeat the data (which I posted here on Thursday):

    Obama’s program drew 33.6 million viewers, 50% more than Perot’s 1992 infomercial got (22.7 million). ABC’s “Pushing Daisies,” which competed with Obama’s program for viewers, got 6.6 million viewers, compared to this show’s season average of 5.9 million. In short, over 11% of our nation’s population watched Obama’s show.

  67. 100

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @91 Of course the righties will try to twist it, but viewers per network is a meaningless statistic, in the same way that how many counties Republican candidate ________ (fill in name) won is a meaningless statistic.

    Obama’s 33.6 million viewers is a hell of a lot of viewers. I can’t think of any other TV show that gets that big an audience, except the Superbowl. Anyone who didn’t want to watch it could have flipped the dial to ABC’s “Pushing Daisies.” For every person who did, 48 people watched Obama’s show.*

    * Based on 6.6 million total viewers – 5.9 million regular viewer = .7 million new viewers divided into 33.6 million viewers.

    Uh Ted.. You know you’re profoundly ignorant. Just stating the facts.

    Mortgage lenders started making risky loans back in 2003 when the traditional credit-worthy home buyers all had houses but the world had an insatiable appetite for mortgage backed bonds. At least 3 years before the Dems took over the Congress.

    There was demand and mortgage companies were only too happy to lower their lending standards to meet that demand and skim a lot of money off the top in the process.

    Now lets see you try to sell that worn out talking point about the CRA which doesn’t have a lick of truth to it.

  88. 126

    YLB spews:

    why for work cause we had a very good economy for 6 years

    Uh Ted… This is not true. For at least the first couple years of Bush’s term the economy didn’t produce enough jobs to supply new entrants to the work force.

    Throughout the ENTIRE Bush term in office, the economy did not produce nearly the jobs it did when Clinton was in office.

    Bush’s policies of rewarding the rich and well-connected and wasting badly needed resources on a money pit in Iraq have completely FAILED the American people.

    And that’s why Bush’s approval rating is in the twenties – lower than any President in history.

    Keep apologizing for the guy you voted for twice Ted. You’re in good company with that twenty percent.

  89. 128

    YLB spews:

    127 – Uh Ted. That article is full of lies. Thanks for doing what I’d thought you’d do.

    The banks that were regulated under the CRA made a very small percentage of the sub-prime loans. In general, the loans made under CRA regulations actually have a good performance record. The CRA was designed to correct the old discriminatory practice of red-lining.

    At least half of the bad loans were made by mortgage lenders like Country-Wide and were not bound by the CRA. These bad loans financed McMansions and other homes in suburban sub-divisions in places like greater Las Vegas.

    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac don’t lend to the home buyer. They bundle loans into mortgage backed bonds and by doing so compete with all the other investment banks serving the once insatiable market for higher yielding bonds.

    It’s a pretty bad idea to announce a high profile investigation of vote or registration fraud before an election. It used to be DOJ policy not to do that.

    What if Bill Clinton’s DOJ did that back in 1996 against an organization signing up Republicans to vote?

    Well, it’s just dandy for Democrats to rip away citizens rights or our security in the name of politics. I would bet the leak came from a left over democrat in DOJ.
    Bush should have never kept any of them on board if it wasn’t for 911 they would have been gone.

  93. 132

    YLB spews:

    128 – Fannie and Freddie were guilty of getting into the same greed game as Lehman Bros, Bear Stearns and any other investment bank wanting a piece of the mortgage bond action. Yes, they had champions in Congress who ran interference for them but Republicans controlled both houses of Congress and the White House for 4 solid years and the first two years of Bush’s term had only a one vote disadvantage in the Senate.

    If the Republicans wanted to fix the problem, they could have done it. It’s stupid to blame what started in 2003 and even earlier as the Dem’s fault

    Besides that, the whole philosophy of Republican governance is whats at issue. The free market can do no wrong can it not? It’s self-correcting is it not?

    If this conservative mantra is so hot then why did so many Republicans vote for the bailout? Why was there a need to spend any taxpayer money?

    Isn’t the bailout socialism for Wall Street?

    131 – Don’t know what you’re trying to say.

    I’ll reiterate. If the government makes a big deal about voter or registration fraud too soon before an election THAT IN ITSELF will INFLUENCE the outcome of the election.

    Again the Republicans did this in 2004 right before November with another ACORN brouhaha in Missouri. And they’re doing it again right now. It’s a dirty trick used to influence the outcome in a battleground state.

    The ultimate test is would you want a Clinton to do something like that?

    The media runs with it for days then when nothing is proven they never retract it on the front page but, in the O.B. section under z.

    All ACORN does that pisses off wingnuts is to register poor people to vote and conduct GOTV drives. Their constituents of course are highly likely to vote Democratic. Being a poor organization means they don’t pay their people that much and sometimes the people they hire cut corners on the job – just like low-paid employees at any other place. ACORN has been fined heavily here in WA State for not supervising their people enough. Yeah, here in WA State, a blue state with a supposedly liberal media.

    And just because someone is registered falsely doesn’t mean that someone shows up to to commit vote fraud. In fact, it’s highly unlikely. Show me anywhere where a vote for Mickey Mouse has been recorded.

    Worst position (standing and respect) of the

    So do you support these? From your false questions, I have to asume so. Great job.

    Again – have there been any convictions against ACORN? didn’t think so – just a lot of hot air. AND ACORN flags the voter registrations it thinks are bad – but is required by law to hand them in anyways. Can’t get more responsible than that.
