Liberal Scholars Question Governor Palin’s Credentials

Here is some biased journalism if ever I saw it. The Politico, which covers Washington politics, has published a piece stating that history scholars say Sarah Palin is the least experienced Vice-Presidential pick in modern times. Reading the article is quite likely to make one believe that the current Alaska governor is not qualified to be Vice President.

What the article doesn’t say is that most of the historians interviewed for the story — Matthew Dallek, Joel Goldstein, David Kennedy, and Doris Kearns Goodwin — are scholars known for having liberal political views, and some have even donated to the Obama campaign. That could certainly taint their objectivity on Governor Palin’s credentials, but The Politico chose to leave those details out. A single conservative — Brad Blakeman — was included in the piece, but his opinion received only two paragraphs in the two-page article. Hardly fair and balanced.

The Politico does do some excellent reporting on occasion, but this is not one of those times.

  1. I like Sarah Palin.
    I liked Mother Teresa, too, but that doesn’t mean she should be Vice President
    Palin is already under investigation for abuse of power.
    That’s even BEFORE she takes office!
    Gotta hand it to the GOP for pure audacity!

    These are the folks who rape the environment and call it the Healthy Forests Initiative.
    They rain death from the sky and call it a Patriot Missile
    Now they put up Bush in a bra and call her a maverick.
    Wow, what hutzpah!
