How do you get out your message and make points in the process? If you’re a republican the time honored way is to complain that the liberal media isn’t being fair to you. Milk that perception wherever and whenever you can and eventually you will score meaningful wins. After all who owns the media but corporate America and we all know how they feel about liberals now don’t we.
Already the McCain campaign has scored two significant victories; Sarah Palin will be interviewed in Alaska by Charlie Gibson; and MSNBC has replaced it’s election anchors. The MSNBC win was scored after some questionable on air behavior by Olbermann and Matthews during the conventions. Bad behavior not withstanding the boys portrayed a liberal bent and we can’t have that now can we. In case anyone has forgotten the NBC and MSNBC News/Entertainment divisions are owned by General Electric. Yes I know they are patriots too, but when the interests of GE come up against your interests who do you think GE will favor?
Then there’s Sarah Palin’s national coming out interview. Complain about fairness, whine about the liberals when you want to get some star like, kid glove handling for your newest product. The McCain campaign has said it’s about personalities, not issues so they’ve set Sarah Palin up for two days of interviews with Charlie Gibson of ABC in Alaska (do I hear “home court advantage”). ABC, that stalwart of corporate citizenship, the network that gave us a heroic george w. bush staring down the inside of a concrete bunker on September 11th (“If some tinhorn terrorist wants me, tell him to come and get me! I’ll be at home! Waiting for the bastard!”) can’t be expected to be anything but deferential to the governor. Wasn’t it Charlie Gibson who said of Palin,

Once you know about her daughter’s pregnancy, once you know about her husband’s political interest in the Alaska Independent Party, once you know about the special nature of their latest child, I think that’s enough.

Ahh, Charlie loves Sarah, that’s so nice and “post partisan.” Yeah I’m sure we’ll get some really deep and relevant answers here. As Josh Marshall says, “It will be unwatchable.” You all stay tuned now cause the whining and complaining aren’t done yet. No sirree it’s only September and republicans haven’t had enough faux outrage to satisfy their appetites just yet.
