Hey, I'm not saying it's fair. I don't care about her personal life and I wish that the families of politicians would be left alone.
I'm saying that I don't think she got it much worse than a lot of other people. Maybe she got more than most VP candidates, but that comes with the enormous fame that she garnered in such a short time.
That's America. The media loves to make you a superstar, and then they love to tear you down. The more of a star you are, the better. The media made her a star overnight, and I didn't hear people complaining about that. I didn't hear anyone saying it was unfair that the media was covering what type of glasses Palin was wearing, or her fashion sense.
A lot of that early hype was bullshit, based on the fact that she was a good looking woman that made ONE capable speech at the Republican National Convention. I didn't hear anyone talking about media bias then.
I guess it's only a crime when Obama is loved by the liberal media.
