Video: CNN egregiously distorts National Review quote to humiliate Palin

posted at 6:55 pm on October 21, 2008 by Allahpundit

Lowry wrote about this an hour ago, but I missed the segment and wanted to wait for a transcript before blogging it to make sure TPM didn’t edit out any vital context. Verdict: Nope. It’s a fair cut. The full quote from Byron York:

Watching press coverage of the Republican candidate for vice president, it’s sometimes hard to decide whether Sarah Palin is incompetent, stupid, unqualified, corrupt, backward, or — or, well, all of the above. Palin, the governor of Alaska, has faced more criticism than any vice-presidential candidate since 1988, when Democrats and the press tore into Dan Quayle. In fact, Palin may have it even worse than Quayle, since she’s taking flak not only from Democrats and the press but from some conservative opinion leaders as well….

Yes, there are legitimate concerns about Palin’s lack of experience. Who wouldn’t, at the very least, wish that she had more time in the governor’s office on her résumé? But a look at Palin’s 20 months in power, along with interviews with people who worked with her, shows her to be a serious executive, a governor who picked important things to do and got them done — and who didn’t just stumble into an 80 percent job-approval rating.

And here’s the clip. For the record, the full question as posed (TPM picks it up halfway through) is, “The press has been pretty hard on you, the Democrats have been pretty hard on you, but also some conservatives have been pretty hard on you as well. The National Review had a story saying that, you know, I can’t tell if Sarah Palin is incompetent, stupid, unqualified, corrupt or all of the above.”

The freakiest thing about this? Drew Griffin, the reporter, is the same guy who’s been doing good work on Ayers and ACORN. Exit question: Blame the researcher, or was he looking to make amends to the left?

Update: Griffin did say immediately after the clip cuts off, “But they were talking about the fact that your experience as governor is not getting out,” which is at least true to York’s ultimate point. Still doesn’t excuse imputing to him the views he was imputing to the media, though.

It’s CNN – they are attempting to appease the coming Socialist Regime.

OT – I was watching CNN (by accident!) yesterday and they were trying to make some political hay out of black descendants from slaves the McCain family had back in the day. I couldn’t believe they were trying to make some kind of political point with that.

To be fair to Griffin, some producer probably got him that quote. He said he didn’t know who it was by, and he’d certainly know Parker and Buckley have said some unflattering things.

I watched the rest of the videos of the interview and Drew Griffin was pretty fair. The National Review Article says “If you watch press coverage of Palin you’d think blah blah blah blah” Griffin made it sound like someone at National Review said all the stuff. So it was a screw up, more than attack and if you read KLo’s post at the Corner she notes that Griffin clarifies that her story as Governor is not getting out.

I can’t describe how depressing it is that what seemed to be the only legitimate journalist on CNN was responsible for asking this question. I mean, this guy asked questions about ACORN that nobody else would touch. He completely stopped Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer cold.

No, the press does not understand that people hate them. Just like the snotty little elitists like Buckley and Noonan do not understand that rank and file conservatives think they are parasites.

These folks live in such a cocoon that they have no idea what 80% of the people in this country look like, or sound like or live like or think like or anything else.

Why not prepare yourself to counter such idiotic entrapments?

When tripped up by some sensational charge, her first response should be, “I don’t believe it.”

The MSM has proven that she’d be correct to respond that way, since each one of these has been an outright misrepresentation.

Ask for an exact quote or citation and authorship, at the least. And then say, “I will clear the quote with that person and get back to you. I believe in fact-checking the MSM.”

The interviewer will appear to be natural…Gov. Palin will look and talk like Max Headroom…and the network will deny any tricks and accuse anyone pointing to their obvious bias as trafficking in innuendo, attack and negativity….

You are the first person to ever thank me personally. Honest to God truth.

It hurt something awful. Still hurts.

Thanks -

I’m totally unworthy. I should be beaten..by women in leather body suits, because I’m a naughty boy.

Oreilly’s got Ayers on tape claiming to be a marxist, and during Obama’s “relationship” with an unrepentent terrorist……red meat?

Forget it! O’reilly’s still a stupid moron that does not understand economics even when Gingrich trys to explain it.
