    Default McCain adviser: Palinís book is fiction

    Depictions ‘took place entirely in her imagination,’ says Wallace


    Working mom’ interview?
    Palin described thinking the Couric interview would be lighthearted and fun. "It was supposed to be ... a working mom speaking with [another] working mom and the challenges that we have with teenage daughters," she told "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in an interview broadcast Monday.
    Wallace told msnbc that this is "rationalization or justification or fiction." "We set up this interview on the day of the U.N. General Assembly, with a walk-and-talk in front of the U.N. It was never made as two working gals ... that was supposed to be to highlight her foreign policy savvy."


    Well, so much for Palin's foreign policy savvy.

    Americans had barely finished voting a year ago when anonymous sources in the campaign (who were widely assumed to be Schmidt and fellow adviser Nicolle Wallace) were calling the Palin family “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus.” (Now that's funny no matter who you are)
    [Since the publication of this story, Schmidt called to refute that either he or Wallace were the source of anti-Palin leaks.]
    In any event, there were leaks about Palin’s lavish spending on clothes, unwillingness to stay on message and demand that she deliver her own concession speech on election night.

    Sarah's pissed over Newsweek cover? You betcha!


    November 18, 2009 - 7:57am




    Newsweek magazine dug up an old Runner's World photo of Sarah Palin in running shorts and used it on the cover for a story entitled How Do You Solve a Problem Like Sarah?
    So Sarah's pissed. She called the cover "sexist" and conservative pundits are weighing in with bombastic self-righteous indignation.
    Odd. These same pundits gleefully promoted Palin as the new sex symbol for the GOP when the John McCain campaign plucked her from obscurity in a desperation effort to salvage the 2008 Presidential election.
    But Sarah, wearing a bright-red, form-fitting top in the photo, is seeing red over the cover photo.

    Palin photographer breached contract with sale to Newsweek
    Jeff Bercovici
    Nov 18th 2009 at 2:

    What on earth was Sarah Palin thinking when she posed in a pair of teeny-tiny gym shorts for a photograph that ended up on the cover of Newsweek -- a cover she has called "sexist"? Perhaps she was thinking that her image would only appear in the magazine she was posing for, Runner's World, and nowhere else, at least not for months and months. If so, she had good reason -- since, as DailyFinance has learned, the photographer who shot the picture violated his contract by reselling them to Newsweek.

    That photographer, Brian Adams, could not immediately be reached, and his agent, Kelly Price, declined to comment, saying, "I keep all of my clients' business private." But a spokeswoman for Runner's World confirms that Adams's contract contained a clause stipulating that his photos of Palin would be under embargo for a period of one year following publication -- meaning until August 2010. "Runner's World did not provide Newsweek with its cover image," the spokeswoman said. "It was provided to Newsweek by the photographer's stock agency, without Runner's World's knowledge or permission." The spokeswoman declined to say whether Runner's World intends to respond to Adams's breach of contract with legal action.

    But while Newsweek's use of the photo violated the embargo, it's not clear to what extent Adams is at fault. A source with knowledge of the situation says multiple outlets, including Time, approached Runner's World after the photos first appeared on its website in July to inquire about obtaining the reuse rights. Those who inquired were forwarded to Adams. Editors at the magazine were aware of negotiations to resell the pictures, and were primarily concerned to see that Runner's World received prominent credit, says the source. In the event, Newsweek credited Runner's World right on its cover. Another source says there is some disagreement over whether the exclusivity clause in Adams's contract is meant to cover all magazines or only titles that compete with Runner's World. Meanwhile, a post on Adams's blog seems to suggest he didn't know about the resale to Newsweek until after Price concluded it. "

    CNN Poll: Most Americans say Palin not qualified to serve as president
    Posted: November 16th, 2009 05:57 PM ET

    From CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser
    CNN Poll: Most Americans say Palin not qualified to serve as President.



    WASHINGTON (CNN) Ė Fewer than three in 10 Americans think Sarah Palin's qualified to be president, according to a new national poll - the least of any of the five potential candidates included in the survey.
    But another woman tops that list in the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday: two-thirds of the public thinks that Secretary of State HIllary Clinton's qualified for the Oval Office. That's more than Vice President Joe Biden, who's currently next in line for the presidency.

    Sorry, I do not consider Rush Limpbaugh, Sean Hannity or Glenn Beck any kind of reliable news source either.

    Apparently so did our own CBC, they showed the cover of the spoof book on their coverage of the Rogue launch and made their public apology last night.

    You need to realize that it isn't news unless it comes from:

    Fox
    The National Review
    World Net Daily
    American Thinker
    The New York Post
    Washington Times
    Wall Street Journal

    None of the others count.
