Speaking to reporters today in Alaska, Sarah Palin said she now wants “to be able to help also Americans to know that they can trust their media”. Erm, “also Americans”? Does that mean Canadians too? Then again, maybe I’ll still also pass.
According to Lisa Tozzi of The New York Times, Gov. Palin “said for the most part the media is good but ‘one bad apple sometimes does kind of spoil the whole bunch’ and went on to say that during the campaign there had been some ‘stinkers that have kind of made the whole basket full of apples there once in a while smell kind of bad’.” Palin also said that she’s “disappointed in the change that I’ve seen in the national media compared to, you know, a couple of decades ago when I received my journalism degree.” That would be the degree she received from the University of Idaho after attending five colleges in six years. According to University officials, despite her degree, Palin does not appear to have worked for the college television station or campus newspaper or campus television station; she did, however, work briefly as a sportscaster for KTUU in Anchorage after graduation.
I’ll pass on the fashion advice too, considering that on Wednesday Gov. Palin was wearing “black sweatpants, high heels and a blue hooded sweatshirt”.
