Letter: Media too hard on Palin and soft on Obama

Media too hard on Palin and soft on Obama
What if the media had put as much effort in digging up dirt on our current president as they have Sarah Palin? The cocaine use, the questionable association with known terrorist William Ayers, his coziness with racist Jeremiah Wright, and his Muslim ties didn’t really seem important. No, they found it more newsworthy to badger Sarah Palin about a pregnant teenager, and tons of unwarranted complaints filed by liberals (none of which were ever proven).
The media, especially liberal media, has overlooked the massive hole that the Obama administration is continuing to dig and the hundreds of thousands of jobless people in America. Our economy is tanking, our borders are still pretty much wide open, and the “immoral majority” seems to be running rampant. But are these things worthy of news coverage? No. Let Sarah Palin go buy a new pair of shoes and we have breaking news. Seems like we have more gossip than we have news.In S.C., the governor made a bad mistake, does the news media focus on the wrong doing? NO! They tell us that Sanford is torn between his wife and his soulmate. The news media gives us hours upon hours of coverage of Michael Jackson, although he was talented, he should never be front page. The news media holds partial blame for the deterioration of society by wasting resources to cover soap operas while letting important news go uninvestigated.
