It was all the media’s fault.


Or so Sarah Palin seems to say in an interview with right-wing filmmaker John Ziegler for a documentary on what he calls “media malpractice.”


As Politico reports, Gov. Palin sees herself as a victim of that mythical political bogeyman, the “Mainstream Media.” She thinks the MSM promoted its own self-interests at her expense:


“What is it that drives someone to believe the worst and perpetuate the worst in terms of gossip and lies? … I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen. And I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.”


Palin also sees herself as a victim of the McCain campaign, because they wouldn’t let her drop out of the Couric interviews:


“I knew it didn’t go well the first day, and then we gave her a couple of other segments after that. And my question to the campaign was, after it didn’t go well the first day, why were we going to go back for more? And because of however it works in that upper echelon of power brokering in the media and with spokespersons, it was told to me that, yeah, we are going to go back for more. And going back for more was not a wise decision either.”


More self-pity can be seen here:
