The Post Goes Rogue

It's no wonder newspapers are going down the toilet. The Washington Post is covering Sarah Palin's "rogue" book tour like it was the New Hampshire primary, with stories--sometimes multiple--every day.

Dear Post: please get this straight. Book tours are for the purpose of selling books and making money. If Ms. Palin wants coverage in your rag for her book, she (or her publisher--also going down the toilet) should PAY YOU in the form of taking out an ad.

There's nothing newsworthy about her book tour, unless you're also going to include articles about every speech and public appearance made by Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich and the half dozen or so other potential GOP candidates for Prez in 2012.

Please, give it a rest. Who cares if a line of brain-dead Palin adorers lined up at Ft. Bragg--or anywhere else--to have her sign their books. Give us a Palin-free newspaper, at least for a few weeks, and stop promoting her book for her.

Of course, the purpose of the Post's coverage is not to promote Palin's book, but to continue its smear job against her.

That the Post hates her so much suggests there is something very special about her.

So, under James Young's equation, Post Hatred for an individual=individual is special.

Back in 2001, the Post came out with some strong words against bin Laden. I guess James Young would conclude that bin Laden is special like Sarah Palin.

"A tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing".
