Vanity Fair's October 2010 profile on Sarah Palin is a fantastic piece of journalism. The writer spent this spring and summer with Palin and her campaign for the story. Nothing I say could do it justice though. I highly suggest you guys read the entire thing, though you may not have time to finish it...http://www.vanityfai...currentPage=all
And can we please not use the "liberal media" fallback? Kthxbye.
After reading the opening paragraph I was already clear on the bias of the writer. A hackney wanna-be who wants to hitch onto Sarah's coattails and try to get rich off it.
Even as Sarah Palin’s public voice grows louder, she has become increasingly secretive, walling herself off from old friends and associates, and attempting to enforce silence from those around her. Following the former Alaska governor’s road show, the author delves into the surreal new world Palin now inhabits—a place of fear, anger, and illusion, which has swallowed up the engaging, small-town hockey mom and her family—and the sadness she has left in her wake.
Oh my goodness...Sarah is trying to have a private life? What??? With kids and after having her life torn apart 24/7 by the liberal media??? What an obvious attention whore, hiding and stuff!!!!And here is one clear indicator of a writer's ability: When they tell you how a person they hardly know feels
about things behind closed doors, they probably do not have a clue about honesty. You can expect more of this liberal use of lies, that is the basis for the article, which is why it got the first paragraph.
With few exceptions—mostly Palin antagonists in journalism and politics whose beefs with her have long been out in the open—virtually no one who knows Palin well is willing to talk about her on the record, whether because they are loyal and want to protect her (a small and shrinking number), or because they expect her prominence to grow and intend to keep their options open, or because they fear she will exact revenge, as she has been known to do.
OOOHHHHH...Sarah will get you! That's why I had such a hard time getting dirt on her, people are afraid to say anything bad about Sarah Palin.Anyone think this notion might be a little...I don't know?... Made up completely out of fairy dust and lemonade lies? Nobody will come out and tell us she's a horrible eprson, therefore she must be a horrible person who they are afraid of.Good deduction there mr. writer, now look at the little paper clipped to your collar to see where you live. Give the note to the man in the short bus, he is a friend.
