Palin Africa Story A Hoax
The "Sarah Palin doesn't know Africa" story is a hoax! All The Lefties and Pbama Cultists have egg all over their faces!
From Associated Content:
The story that Governor Sarah Palin did not know that Africa is a continent appears to have been a hoax. What's more, the alleged source of the hoax, a "senior McCain advisor" named Martin Eisenstadt does not exist.
Martin Eisenstadt is the creation of a couple of film makers who also created a fake think tank for their creation to work for, the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy. There are also some clips of "Martin Eisenstadt" on Youtube and a blog which are also faked. The film makers claim that they created "Martin Eisenstadt" as a character for a proposed TV series.
Why did the story that Sarah Palin didn't know that Africa was a continent gain such credibility in the media? Part of the reason is that the Internet tends to magnify the old saying by Mark Twain that by the time the truth puts on its shoes, a lie can travel half way around the world. The Internet is the perfect vehicle for spreading rumor and innuendo.
The other reason is that people in the mainstream media are quite willing to believe any story that suggest that a prominent conservative is a dimwit. It is no accident that the story of Sarah Palin and Africa started at MSNBC, a network that actually works at liberal bias rather than having it come naturally. But the story spread and was reported as fact across the media, newspapers, TV, and even talk radio.
This is a perfect example of the Liberal Owned Media (LOM) and MSNBC being so biased, so anti-anything-but-the-Liberal Agenda, that they rush to report something without confirming it or doing the most basic fact-checking.
Now, check around the internet and find out how many Liberal sites and blogs are bothering to correct themselves and are publishing that this was a hoax. My guess is ZERO!
The Pbama Cultists have been PWNED again! Fabulous.
You have some great input here:
In fact I find her to be a feminist in that she seeks to thrive in Male dominated areas like hunting. Yes, yes, I agree.
That being said Palin is still not quite the direction I hope the GOP goes in. Her lack of education and (McCain) reported unwillingness to listen to advisers also are of concern for me if she should run for office. Again, I agree...with most of that.
I like where she's at in the Conservative spectrum. I don't know about her lack of education...I think she is educated and intelligent. Certainly - at least in my opinion - smarter than Joe Biden who manufactured the U.S. and France kicking Hezbollah (or was it Hamas) out of Lebannon out of thin air.
I agree she has time and may grow.
The GOP needs a mix of a Rudy Giuliani and a Sarah Palin. Rudy knows how to campaign, witness his devastating speech at the Repub Convention. To use a phrase comedians use, he "killed." And that is what McCain lacked.
Thanks for visiting and commenting, as always!
Today's 'journalists' have absolutely no integrity.
None. Zip. Nada.
And no verification or fact checking by MSNBC, they just ran with it. That is not journalism, it's blind and biased media favoritism.
