In the wake of the news that the Federal Communications Commission backed off on its controversial study of American newsrooms, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin used her standard Facebook perch Friday to go after the media for its selective outrage.
Pulling no punches, Palin shamed the “lamestream” media for failing to “wake the h*ll up” until President Obama had his boot on their necks.
Her comment, in it’s entirety:
“What? Lamestream calls for empathy, even outrage, for a First Amendment violation that’s on par with all the abuse we’ve brought to your attention as Obama stomps on our Constitution. You’ve IGNORED us, you’ve marginalized us, you’ve left us for ‘destroyed.’ But when Obama’s boot is on YOUR neck you finally wake the h*ll up and cry foul? Good Lord.”
Palin included a link to a Breitbart article about America dropping from 33rd to 46th in the World Press Freedom Index, with author Ben Shapiro pointing out that “the violation of press freedoms has been egregious under this administration.”
The harsh commentary from Palin not only reflects an understanding of how important a free press is to our form of government, but gives every indication that she vividly recalls the despicable way she has been treated by the media.
