Sarah Palin says what happened to Newt Gingrich is a good example of why Republicans running for president should avoid the “lamestream media.”

“There’s got to be the preparation on all the candidates’ parts for those gotchas. That’s what the lamestream media is known for nowadays is the gotcha trip-up questions,” she told Sean Hannity on his Fox News Channel show Wednesday…

“I don’t know why politicians feel that they have to apologize for something that they said just because they’ve gone through a 24-hour cycle of the lamestream media giving them a hard time,” she said. “If Newt Gingrich believes that it’s right-wing social engineering to undo Obamacare and reform Medicare … then say so. But don’t apologize later just because the media has dinged you on what you said.”

Of course it wasn’t the media that raked Gingrich over the coals, it was his own Republican/conservative base. But blaming the “lamestream media” is always convenient.
