After Saying Her Whining Days Were Done, Palin Whines That Website Buried Her Quote
Sarah Palin, having vowed to stop whining about her press treatment, is now complaining that a quote she gave to The Daily Caller wasn’t placed high enough in the story.
The publication, helmed by Tucker Carlson, quoted from a nearly 650-word statement she issued to them in response to an article on legislation she signed as governor of Alaska providing tax credits to production companies who film in Alaska. It also reprinted the entire statement on the next page of the article. This was not good enough, however, for Palin, who said that her statement was “buried.”…
“In response to The Daily Caller’s online inquiry, I gave them a statement that the writer buried on his story’s second page (which most people won’t even notice – I didn’t even notice it.”
Reporter Chris Moody says he was “surprised” by the response, written on Palin’s Facebook page, because Palin’s staff demanded and got their wish that the entire response be used, and seemed fine with the agreement that was made.
But Palin repeatedly claimed the placement was insufficient in her Facebook post, writing that “having to set the record straight on my Facebook page yet again is further proof that the media can’t be trusted even to print a statement in a manner that people can read.”
News publications rarely run articles featuring unabridged statements as lengthy as Palin’s and Moody himself could not recall receiving similar demands from any other source.Click here for reuse options!
