Video: Media all over transparency story involving … a non-governmental official

posted at 2:45 pm on June 10, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

The way that MSNBC coos over the story of Sarah Palin’s e-mails from her time as governor, one might think they were perusing Anthony Weiner’s Twitter feed. Not a chance, because if they did that, the media might actually find something. Instead, Andrea Mitchell and Michael Isikoff give the palette of paper the breaking-news treatment, complete with a “DEVELOPING NOW” logo, as if emails from the Alaska government from 2009 and earlier were the hottest story facing the nation:

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Of course, there really isn’t any news in this, not since Alaska announced days ago that they would release the data.  The live-camera action of the cart being rolled out the door is simply gripping, of course, but it does give Isikoff and Mitchell a chance to note that the media has dedicated heavy coverage of the event, which involves someone who so far isn’t in public office nor running for public office.  Wait until the end, when Mitchell and Isikoff chuckle as they read a statement from SarahPAC stating that the e-mails will show “a governor hard at work.”  “We’ll see,” laughs Isikoff.

Well, that’s more than they promised after Anthony Weiner tweeted his underwear-clad genitalia.  But he’s just a member of Congress, so why should they be interested in transparency there?

Update (AP): How bad is it? This bad.

What Gov. Palin’s emails will also show:

Requests for federal earmarks declined dramatically in each of the fiscal years for which Sarah Palin exercised budgetary authority for the State of Alaska. In FY2007, Gov. Frank Murkowski requested $350 million in federal appropriations, which Gov. Palin reduced to $256 million in FY2008, $198 million in FY2009, and $69 million in FY2010. Overall, Palin cut earmark requests by more than 80% during her tenure as Governor.

ROFLMAO you can’t make this stuff up.

Many emails in the Palin trove come from her constituents. This rather adorable one, sent along by reader Clare C., is from August 11, 2008 and written by a very young fan. She writes:

Your awesome Palin when I grow up I want to be the first girl president for the USA. It was a great honor to meet you at Fred Meyers, My old hamster died of well I think it died of eating too much paint off the bars on its cage so I got a new hamster named Captain Cheese she is a very fat hamster it has blond, brown and black fur and black eyes. … Thank you for the taking a picture with me. It is an honor to have you as our Governor

katy the mean old lady on June 10, 2011 at 5:05 PM

hmmm i wonder what made her change her mind?

But toward the beginning of her administration, in January 2007, Ms. Palin wrote a long e-mail to her senior staff members urging them to talk to the press about whatever they wanted. (Read the e-mail.)

“In fact, I’ve stated that the more information and communication efforts put forth on behalf of your departments and divisions, the better,” she wrote in the e-mail, which she said was prompted by an article in The Anchorage Daily News that suggested she had banned aides from speaking openly to reporters.

“I have NEVER banned any of our team members from voicing opinions on anything,” she wrote. “I’ve asked that you all share your opinions, speak freely to the press, public, legislators, one another, etc. (In other words, don’t do what past administrations have done.)”

She concluded: “I will write to the ‘Ear’ reporter and clarify for her also.” The Anchorage Daily News has a column called Alaska Ear.

couldn’t be like i don’t know them searching 24,000 emails, sending 11 factcheckers to look at her book, dumpsterdivers, attackign her children, making crap up or nothing like that….

Palin responded with a mash note of her own:

Some of them are complaining about the method of presentation.

They think the state should have created an online database, or let them download them all from their HQs in DC and NYC.

Instead, the poor bastards had to actually travel to Juneau, Alaska and gather at the State Admin Building to take delivery of 5 boxes of paper weighing 55 lbs each, for each media organization.

That is hilarious, kinda reminds me of July 2009 when they all wound up in her backyard, then had to follow her another 450 miles to the Dillingham fishing camp to get any interviews. Andrea Mitchell in that rubber fisherman getup on the Palin’s boat was priceless.

If she was President, the White House Press Corpse would be grateful for Crawford Texas in August, compared to Wasilla Alaska in Jan-Feb.

Despite a dizzying presidential campaign schedule with Sen. John McCain, Sarah Palin kept in near constant communication with her Alaska staff going over appointments, oil and gas legislation, and even inquiring about what the press was asking her communications aides in Alaska.

It’s clear that Palin and her staff back at the state capitol believed that the press scrutiny she was receiving as the vice presidential nominee was overwhelming and unwarranted. It was also Palin’s first major experience being in the national media spotlight.

On September 15, 2008 Palin emailed members of her team working on a project to build a natural gas pipeline in the state saying, “I hear some of the anti’s are griping about TC-Alaska again, let me know if I need to answer any of their gripes.”

Department of Revenue Commissioner Pat Galvin replied, “There are very few anti’s griping within Alaska, but the national media is getting their first taste of AGIA and they WANT it to be wrong somehow. First, the New York Times wrote that the gasline is no sure thing, quoting Bert and Lyda as recent converts against it…acting as if you had said the gas was practically flowing right now. Recently, we hear that a Newsweek reporter wasn’t to ‘blow the lid’ off the real story that everybody knows we’ll never get through Canada, and AGIA was all a ruse to get you to the White House.”

Palin answered “Holy cow. Thank you guys for continuing to get the truth out!”

That same day she emailed her attorney general, Talis Colberg, to inquire about the his investigation into gas prices in Alaska.

Also on Sept. 15, she sent a message to her commissioner of the Department of Fish and Game and other top aides to check in about press inquiries regarding polar bears and climate change.

“I anticipate folks will be inquiring about our polar bear issue, though it hasn’t cropped up yet that I’ve heard of….climate change is a top issue of course, Just head’s up,” Palin wrote. “Also, predator control’s been quiet, but let me know if the issue’s volume gets turned up and I need to respond to anything.”

Again on the same day, her commissioner, Lloyd Denby replied, “We’ve received a number of public records requests and press inquiries regarding polar bear and predator control, but nothing out of the ordinary (other than the number and frequency.”

Press secretary Bill McAllister e mailed Palin to report on some of the media inquiries they received including about her tanning bed, rape kits, and her “belief that dinosaurs and humans co-existed at one time?” The former and now current reporter ends his email, “I continue to be dismayed at the media.”

She replied clearly frustrated, “Arghhh! I am so sorry that the office is swamped like this! Dinosaurs even?! I’ll try to run through some of these in my head before responding. And the old, used tanning bed that my girls have used a handful of times in Juneau? Yes, we paid for it ourselves. I, too, will continue to be dismayed at the media and am thankful you and Sharon are not part of the strange going’s-on in the media world of today.”

There are also many emails from supporters excited about her vie-presidential bid, some that Palin took the time to respond to herself. But buried among the notes from supporters, there are also several graphic death threats directed at Palin and sent to her state account – some were apparently even sent from outside the country.

OMG!!!!111!!! Palin still handled the responsibilities of bering the VP candidate and gov at the same time. Isn’t that like walking and chewing gum at the same time?

It would be like she was a real person, or something! Wouldn’t that be da bomb!

My only worry is what would that do for Levi’s book coming out.

CNN’s Dan Griffin on Palin E-mails: Palin “a Hardworking Governor,” “Different than the Narrative”

“…what we’re seeing here…is a hardworking governor, working hard for the State of Alaska, a lot of discussion about policy, about taxes, about cutting budget, a lot of just the mundane state government work.”

“…somewhat different than the narrative that we’ve been hearing from certain political parts of the country…”
