Sarah Palin Asks: Do Wall Street Journal Reporters Read the Wall Street Journal?

An excellent smack down by Sarah Palin as well as proof that some people are so biased against Sarah Palin they forget their own ideas and in this case, writings, mirror hers. How stupid is that?

Do Wall Street Journal Reporters Read the Wall Street Journal?

Ever since 2008, people seem inordinately interested in my reading habits. Among various newspapers, magazines, and local Alaskan papers, I read the Wall Street Journal.

So, imagine my dismay when I read an article by Sudeep Reddy in today’s Wall Street Journal criticizing the fact that I mentioned inflation in my comments about QE2 in a speech this morning before a trade-association. Here’s what I said: “everyone who ever goes out shopping for groceries knows that prices have risen significantly over the past year or so. Pump priming would push them even higher.

Mr. Reddy takes aim at this. He writes: “Grocery prices haven’t risen all that significantly, in fact.” Really? That’s odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy’s own Wall Street Journal titled “Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies.

The article noted that “an inflationary tide is beginning to ripple through America's supermarkets and restaurants…Prices of staples including milk, beef, coffee, cocoa and sugar have risen sharply in recent months.

Now I realize I’m just a former governor and current housewife from Alaska, but even humble folks like me can read the newspaper. I’m surprised a prestigious reporter for the Wall Street Journal doesn’t.

- Sarah Palin

People we are in grave danger. What the Fed is doing can destroy the nation. Sarah Palin is one of the very few out there actually speaking up. We don't have time for petty politics and other such nonsense. It's quite obvious who our leader is. It's time to get behind her and put the silliness on the back burner.
