"Sarah Palin ‘affair’: big media stays quiet as ‘lover’ named

While America's respectable media focus on John McCain's acceptance speech to the Republican faithful, blogs and gossip sites continue to lead the feeding frenzy surrounding the National Enquirer's allegation, reported here yesterday, that McCain's running mate Sarah Palin had an affair with her husband's business partner.

The Enquirer's own anonymous source claims there was an affair. The paper reports: "Todd discovered the affair and quickly dissolved his friendship and business associations with the guy. Many people in Alaska are talking about the rumour and say Todd swept it under the rug."

Further allegations continue to emerge from the original Enquirer story, including the suggestion that Palin had attempted to force her pregnant teenage daughter Bristol to marry the father of her child before the story of the pregnancy broke. Bristol refused, leaving her mother with a messy situation to deal with in the run up to her speech to the Republican convention.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post is showing the way for mainstream media nervous of Palin's lawyers. Reporters there are pursuing slightly less tawdry scandals in the ongoing evaluation of her suitability for the post of Vice President. The paper has printed emails sent by Palin which criticise the official inquiry into her ex-brother-in-law, State Trooper Mike Wooten. The 'Troopergate' scandal concerns allegations that Palin got rid of her public safety commissioner Walt Monegan for failing to heed her demands to fire Wooten.


Blogger commentary:

"Remember when John Edward's affair was the hot news story all during the time Hillary's supporters claimed that public knowledge of the affair would have shifted the nomination to her? (And remember how quickly the Edwards story faded once Hillary conceded to Obama?) Remember all the attention Edward's affair got even though he was already out of the race, and the affair unable to affect our daily lives?

Well, I am casting the gauntlet down to the corporate media on this one. Only a few days ago, I pointed out how the media went after Obama's pastor for his supposed racist views, yet seemed unconcerned with Palin's pastor's claim that terrorism in Israel was God's punishment on Jews for refusing to convert to Christianity!

And here we are. The "Family values" nominee for Vice President has her own stained sheets. Fairness and honesty demands that the media examine this story with the same intensity with which they reported on John Edwards' affair.

So, media, will you be fair and unbiased? Or will you prove that you are still the lackeys of the rich and powerful GOP? Will it be one set of journalistic standards for the Democrats, and another kinder and gentler set for the GOP?

The gauntlet is thrown. The challenge is made. The whole world watches to see what the US corporate media will do now. --- Webmaster of Wake the Flock Up

They won't cover it; the blogs will have to make them!
