The Brilliance Of Sarah Palin: Confusing The 'Lame Stream' Media
"Congratulations, Sarah Palin, you have turned the Washington press corps into a bunch of paparazzi stalking your every move." – Jay Newton-Small
I am not sure if Sarah Palin will announce a run for the presidency in 2012 or not. I am also not sure if I would vote for her if she does. What I am sure of is that Sarah Palin is nothing the political world has ever seen before and has the media running in circles and confused. Although, if they had an ounce of sense they would understand instinctively what the rest of us do.... Palin is brilliant, unconventional and is playing the media like a fine tuned piano.
The old "lame-stream media" is confused because Palin announced a "bus tour" for her and her family, yet didn't give a set schedule. They are upset she hasn't given them the chance to dog her footsteps and question her at each stop just so they can edit her answers and spin their stories the way they want to.
In the meantime she gives insider scoops to those she chooses and the rest spin, talk, complain and create media buzz and speculate the only way they can...... by running around behind the news, reporting events after the fact.
The media seems peeved that the only straight up original news is found at SarahPac, where the donation buttons are prominent and she can get people to sign on for her email list giving her a bigger pool of email subscribers.
Yes, all this is too confusing for the media outlets to understand... right. Let us not even mention the stories that have the information wrong where even their corrections screw the whole story up...no, we will leave that to Conservatives4Palin to point out.
Palin has them all running in circles, fighting to keep up and failing miserably.
Palin is not only getting all the media attention she wants, she is doing it on her terms. She is showing everyone, very clearly just how "lame" the lame stream media has become.
