It wasn't even a week ago that Sarah Palin had this to say said to some in the media;
'And first, some straight talk for some, just some in the media because another right protected for all of us is freedom of the press, and you all have such important jobs reporting facts and informing the electorate, and exerting power to influence. You represent what could and should be a respected honest profession that could and should be the cornerstone of our democracy.
Democracy depends on you, and that is why, that's why our troops are willing to die for you. So, how 'bout in honor of the American soldier, ya quite makin' things up..."
Well today some in the media went ahead and made stuff up. CNN stringer Dennis Zaki fabricated a complete story about Sarah and Todd Palin getting a divorce! However the joke was on Zaki. Before the story could take on life on the web, Sarah Palin's spokesperson had this up on Sarah's Facebook page:
Yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story. There is no truth to the recent “story” (and story is the correct term for this type of fiction) that the Palins are divorcing. The Palins remain married, committed to each other and their family, and have not purchased land in Montana (last week it was reported to be Long Island).
Less than one week ago, Governor Palin asked the media to “quit making things up.” We appreciate that the more professional journalists decided to question this story before repeating it.
Stapleton's message was later confirmed with this official quote from Sarah Palin by blogger extraordinaire Robert Stacy McCain:
"Divorce Todd? Have you seen Todd? I may be just a renegade hockey mom, but I'm not blind!"
-- SARAH PALIN
This whole make up lies and feed them to the MSM gag, is an old tactic employed by the Alaskan bloggers. These smear merchants are the same ones who filed all those bogus ethics complaints against Palin while she was governor. Make sure to see the Ethicsgate video, to see how they all work together with the DNC and members of the Obama administration.
Finally, a word of caution to conservatives. Whether you like or dislike Sarah Palin, the tactics used against her must be stopped. I have said time and time again that if the left is successful in stopping Palin, the same tactics will become standard operating procedure against ALL conservatives. To prove my point, Conservatives4Palin are reporting today that Minnesota bloggers are now filing bogus ethics complaints against Rep. Michele Bachmann!
Pam Geller at Atlas Shrugs has already heeded the warning and has decided to fight the lies with stone cold truth. Geller has fired a major salvo and has posted naked pictures of Obama's mama! Yeah, she went there!
