It seems the once respected leaders of the newspaper industry are fast becoming indistinguishable from the lowliest of supermarket tabloids. The Media Research Center reported this:
…the state of Alaska is releasing 24,000 official emails from Sarah Palin’s term as governor. The liberal media cannot wait to dig through these emails, hoping for fodder to continue their vicious attacks. Both The Washington Post and The New York Times have gone a step further by asking readers to sign up on their websites as amateur Palin bashers and help them to look for dirt.
Would these two so-called "news" organizations actively canvass readers to dig up dirt on Bill Clinton or Anthony Weiner?.
The Media Research Center is gathering emails to send to these two "news" outlets. Add your comments here.
Anyone with any common sense knew this was going to come back to bite the liberals and the liberal media in the rear. The emails are simply reaffirming what we already knew.
Governor Palin conducted the business of her state in a transparent, bi-partisan, and responsible manner. She worked long, hard hours and treated everyone with respect. America is finding out that Palin is a smart, effective, fiscally responsible leader whose goal has always been to serve the people she represents.
She knows how to prioritize, delegate, and choose the most qualified and competent people to serve with her. America is learning that even in the face of death threats from crazed liberals, Gov. Palin just kept working and putting Alaska and Alaskans first.
Here is one example of the shocking secrets exposed in the emails. We learn that…[Emphasis mine]
The governor's goal has always been to introduce a gasline bill on day one of the session, but we want to get it right with a good product. The gasline team is recommending that the bill be delayed to continue to work through the vetting process with the experts. That's where it is now.
We have the bill with the concepts and the details, but it is going through the experts' hands right now. We don't want to introduce a bill just to introduce a bill and meet a goal. Delaying the bill's introduction gives experts the chance to weigh-in and ensures that the best product goes before the Legislature. She amended a line of the story that instead of stating that a bill will be introduced in the first week of the session, she wrote that a bill will be introduced in the first weeks of the session. I forwarded this paragraph from the weekend and she was going to draw upon it to further define the law of general application.
The governor has (long) stated that the obsolete Stranded Gas Development
Act was the improper legal vehicle for negotiating a viable and profitable contract. Therefore, the governor's gas cabinet is working around the clock to draft a bill seeking a law of general application, when passed, this law will bring transparency to a competitive process, will jumpstart construction with valuable incentives, and will maximize the return on a gasline for both the state and the project proponent.
The Palin Administration will be introducing this bill in the upcoming legislative session as soon as the bill has been vetted through experts. As to the Port Authority Board and ANGDA sharing information, I applaud any efforts by any potential applicants to join forces, including the three primary North Slope producers, in whatever manner they deem appropriate to eventually submit the most attractive and beneficial proposal for the Administration's consideration under the new law.
We also learned that Piper wanted to go for a walk with her mom one day and that Ivy Frye had bought a new pair of rain boots to wear while hiking the rain-soaked streets in Juneau. Our sources have not yet informed us whether or not Andree McLeod or Jeanne Devon plans to launch an ethics charge against either Governor Palin or Piper for this egregious behavior.
This ill-fated, biased attempt to besmirch the Governor has been labeled "Operation Backfire" by Jedediah Bila. To their great chagrin, the most damning criticism the left has been able to wrap their sharpened talons around are the typos. How ironic that the left’s big expose is turning into Governor Palin’s best campaign advertising. Game on, ladies and gentlemen.
