Michael Isikoff, Lester Holt, and Bill Dedman… or Larry, Moe, and Curly come back to life on MSNBC and NBC.

Michael
Isikoff, Lestor Holt, Bill Dedman – or Larry, Moe, and Curly come back to life on
NBC and MSNBC!

I ran across the article below  by Brent Baker from Media Research Center –

I classify the article under“The NBC has more money than brains, ethics, or real news stories category, or.. the

What-else is new category.”

 These people actually flew to Alaska and wasted thousands of dollars for what?

Are you freakin serious? The only bombshell here is that liberal News like NBC,
MSNBC, CNBC are all owned by liberal billionaires and they don’t focus on real
important stuff. They focused on Sarah trying to give her kids healthy food and
what selection of drapes she wanted in the Governor’s mansion.

Gee well
I guess that’s not much of a bomb shell either because the liberal press has
been doing that for years!

The above words are my personal opinion and as such are currently protected under the first amendment.

If you don’t believe me, stop being a mindless liberal follower and go read the Constitution for yourself.


NBC the Most Excited by Palin’s E-Mail, Yet Fails to Dig Up Any ‘Bombshells’

Much of the media made
fools of themselves with their excited obsession over the release of Sarah
Palin’s gubernatorial e-mails, but NBC News went the furthest, sending, as did
CNN, reporters to Juneau as the network uniquely led its Friday night newscast
by hyping the non-news as a major event. “On the broadcast tonight,” anchor
Lester Holt heralded, “mail call. Thousands of pages of e-mail from Sarah
Palin’s time as Governor. What we’re learning about her tonight.”

Following a story from “national investigative correspondent” Michael Isikoff
in which “MSNBC.com investigative reporter” Bill Dedman had the gall to
complain “we waited longer for these records than Sarah Palin was Governor,
almost a thousand days,” NBC’s David Gregory recognized, in an
understatement: “As Mike and his team are finding, not a lot of bombshells
here.”

ABC also got into the act, but didn’t send any on-air personnel to Juneau. On
Saturday’s World News, however, John Berman trumpeted his big discovery
proving Palin’s hypocrisy: “While these days Palin is criticizing parts of
Michelle Obama’s national battle against obesity…she once e-mailed an aide
asking for ‘low carb foods…just don’t want the kids to have too much
sugar/white carb stuff.’” That should pretty much discredit her.

CBS showed the best news judgment,
not mentioning the Palin e-mails on Friday or Saturday’s CBS Evening News.

Isikoff’s find – Palin once praised something candidate Barack Obama said:
“Among the e-mails, this exchange from Palin to an aide written a few weeks
before she was picked by McCain, praising then-candidate Obama’s energy policy
speech. ‘He gave a great speech this morning in Michigan – mentioned Alaska,’
adding, ‘we need to take advantage of this and write a statement saying he’s
right on.’ Then in a later e-mail telling an aide, ‘he did say ‘yay’ to our gas
line. Pretty cool. Wrong candidate.’ Palin later became one of Obama’s fiercest
critics on energy policy.”

From the top of the Friday, June 10 NBC Nightly News:

LESTER HOLT: Good evening, I’m Lester Holt, in tonight for Brian.
Sarah Palin’s short rise from obscurity to a source of endless political
fascination reached a new level today as reporters lined up to scour thousands
of pages of e-mails from her time as Alaska Governor. Looking for deeper
insight and clues into her political ambitions. Responding to media requests,
the state of Alaska released 24,000 pages of e-mails covering the period from
December 2006, when she was sworn in as governor, to September 2008 when she
was named John McCain’s running mate. With Palin a potential presidential
challenger, the question tonight is: Could her foes try to use them to try and
define her candidacy? NBC’s national investigative correspondent Michael
Isikoff has been examining some of those e-mails. He joins me now from Juneau,
Alaska, with more. Michael, good evening.

MICHAEL ISIKOFF: Good evening, Lester. News organizations have waited nearly
three years to get access to these documents. Stacks of e-mails from Palin’s
time as Governor. Palin and the state of Alaska fought having to make them
public. But now that they are, a Palin spokesman said today that they show she
was a very engaged Governor and that everybody should read them.

A media frenzy Alaska hasn’t seen since 2008. Journalists jockeying to get
their hands on thousands of pages of e-mails sent by Sarah Palin to more that
50 top aides and officials in Alaska. The 250 pounds of documents contain
e-mails from Palin’s first two years as Governor and continue through September
2008, including the chaotic first weeks after John McCain thrust her into the
national spotlight as his running mate.

As Governor, Palin was a frenetic
BlackBerry user, firing off e-mails but using her personal Yahoo e-mail account
rather than government accounts to conduct state business — all in an effort
to keep her communications private. News organizations like MSNBC.com first
requested the e-mails in 2008, but prying them loose from state archives hasn’t
been easy.

BILL DEDMAN, MSNBC.COM INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER: The state public records law
calls for a ten day release of public records. We waited longer for these
records than Sarah Palin was Governor, almost a thousand days.

ISIKOFF: Among the e-mails, this exchange from Palin to an aide written a few
weeks before she was picked by McCain, praising then-candidate Obama’s energy
policy speech. “He gave a great speech this morning in Michigan – mentioned
Alaska,” adding, “we need to take advantage of this and write a statement
saying he’s right on.” Then in a later e-mail telling an aide, “he did say
‘yay’ to our gas line. Pretty cool. Wrong candidate.” Palin later became one of
Obama’s fiercest critics on energy policy. Palin says the e-mails won’t be a
distraction.

SARAH PALIN, ON FOX NEWS SUNDAY, JUNE 5: I’m sure people are going to
capitalize on this opportunity to go through 25,000 e-mails and perhaps take
things out of context. They’ll never truly know what the context of each one of
the e-mails was or each one of the issues were that I was working on that day.

ISIKOFF: The e-mails have lots of redactions, and so far, there are no
bombshells, but they do show Palin’s irritation with what she calls the
“lamestream media.” Writing from the McCain campaign trail, she writes in one
e-mail: “It drives me crazy to catch all the corrections.” And in an earlier
e-mail, “I feel like I’m at a breaking point with hurtful gossip.” Lester?
