This is how media bias works, folks. Search for MSM stories on the ethics charges leveled against Sarah Palin and you’ll find an endless number of articles from CNN, ABC, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Washington Post and more, using the trumped-up charges to trash her reputation and, more importantly, her political viability. And it worked. They didn’t care about the lack of evidence supporting the charges… just that charges had been leveled. The damage was done. The MSM had tarred and feathered Governor Palin by reporting that the “ethics charges” were evidence to question her integrity and claim abuse of power by the self-described “Maverick”.
But two things have now happened rendering the story of Governor Palin’s “ethics charges” of no interest to the mainstream media. The election is over… and she has been cleared of wrongdoing on all counts.
The accusations made news, but with another dismissal of an ethics charge last week against Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential nominee has quietly been cleared of every ethics complaint filed since the torrent of allegations began in 2008.
Mrs. Palin, who became a target of such complaints after being named Sen. John McCain’s running mate, is 14-for-14 in fighting off the complaints.
Quietly is the key word. Search online for stories of Palin being cleared of all ethics charges and the most you’ll find is an article in the UK’s Guardian, one in a Newsweek blog and another in the conservative-friendly Washington Times.
With the election over, the damage is done. With Palin being cleared, the story is done.
