This woman has to be the most hypocritical human being on the planet. Not only is she having trouble with all her lies, but can’t resist making something out of nothing just to make sure her name stays in the news.
I guess that’s even more important now since she has a book out and sales may turn out to be quite disappointing.
Over the past summer Sarah Palin did an interview with Runners World about her love of running. She also took the time to pose for several photographs for the photographer Brian Adams (not that Brian Adams). In fact she posed for a total of 47 different photos for Mr. Adams. None appear to be a serious photos, minus three which of course feature Trig, but the remaining 44……. cheesecakes. Sarah bent over stretching, Sarah leg hiked up stretching and flashing a little smile, Sarah in a yoga pose, you get the idea. Six feature Sarah Palin desigrating the American Flag similiar to the one used by Newsweek.
So this week’s issue of Newsweek used one of the photos featured in the Runners World spread with the caption ‘How Do You Solve A Problem Like Sarah?’ and of course Sarah has found something else to use on her Majical Victim Tour as another victimization of poor Sarah Palin. But I say she should be grateful they at least used the ones with the photoshopped legs instead of using the original, wouldn’t you?
The choice of photo for the cover of this week’s Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this “news” magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant. The Runner’s World magazine one-page profile for which this photo was taken was all about health and fitness – a subject to which I am devoted and which is critically important to this nation. The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention – even if out of context.
Poor Sarah…………….the media she speaks of that’s willing to do anything to draw attention is the same media that’s she’s attempting to use and confuse with all of her contradicting stories and lies.
As we expected, but certainly not as Sarah expected Newsweek has responded.
This week, to coincide with the release of Sarah Palin’s book Going Rogue, Newsweek’s editors decided to print two essays (one by Evan Thomas, the other by Christopher Hitchens) about the former Alaska governor and have her image grace our cover. The photo chosen was from a shoot Palin had participated in for Runner’s World magazine.
To note that choosing that particular photograph has ruffled a few feathers is perhaps an understatement. Palin denounced it—and us—to her million-strong Facebook following last night. “The choice of photo for the cover of this week’s Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this ‘news’ magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant,” she wrote on her fan page, adding, “The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now.” She also told ABC’s Barbara Walters that she found the cover “a wee bit degrading.” Others, like CBN’s David Brody, said our cover was a new low: “biased and sexist at the same time.”
Today, Newsweek’s Editor Jon Meacham has responded to critics. “We chose the most interesting image available to us to illustrate the theme of the cover, which is what we always try to do,” Meacham said. “We apply the same test to photographs of any public figure, male or female: does the image convey what we are saying? That is a gender-neutral standard.”
Try again Sarah!
