If anyone knows how to unleash the fury of the lame stream media it’s Sarah Palin.
Palin pushed the hot buttons of the liberal Daily Beast when she dared to call out the hypocritical media coverage of actress Lena Dunham’s self-confessed child molestation case, compared to the conservative Duggar family.

The Duggar’s have been in the media spotlight after it was disclosed that their son, Josh Duggar, admitted he had molested his sisters.
While Palin didn’t defend Duggar, she did ask in a lengthy Facebook rant on Thursday, why the media is treating the Duggar case so differently than a similar case in which Dunham admitted in her memoir that she had sexually experimented with her little sister.
You didn’t hear about Dunham’s confession? That’s Palin’s point.
“HEY LENA, WHY NOT LAUGH OFF EVERYONE’S SEXUAL “EXPERIMENTS” AS YOU HAUGHTILY ENJOY REWARDS FOR YOUR OWN PERVERSION? YOU PEDOPHILE, YOU,” Palin wrote.
Proudly linking to daughter Bristol Palin’s blog that also covered the topic, mama Palin wrote:
“Radical liberals in media who have total control over public narratives are disgusting hypocrites, so says my daughter. Go get ’em, Bristol! Read her post!”
Surely the Palins had to know they were really going to tick off some media outlets by writing this. But Sarah didn’t relent, in a lengthy post that outlined her sheer disdain for the media double standards, she said in part:
“I’m not defending the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn’t the perpetrator, it’s the innocent ones so harmfully affected. I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham’s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.”
Palin’s post ignited the wrath of those over at the liberal Daily Beast. In an article titled, “Irrelevant Sarah Palin Defends Molestation-Apologist Duggars, Deflects Blame onto Lena Dunham,” the author lists a series of unhinged personal attacks against Palin.
The Daily Beast article continued the “Palin is irrelevant” narrative throughout, relentlessly hammering jabs at her, irrelevant to the topic at hand.
The hypocrisy in that, was not lost on in the Twittersphere:

Here is some of the substance of what Dunham said:

The substance in that seems relevant enough for the media to cover, or acknowledge, heck, even whisper about. But for the most part, crickets.
