Sarah Palin Crushes Time Magazine Over Their Lies

UPDATED at end of article.

By Gary P Jackson

From Fox Nation:

Sarah Palin’s recent email to Time Magazine Congressional Correspondent Jay Newton-Small started off congenial enough. The mood soon shifted dramatically when Gov. Palin attacked the magazine over the “total lies” that had been published about her. Included in her email is not only a call for a retraction of the false stories, but a demand for an apology to Fox News‘ Sean Hannity and Christina Aguilera who were both included in the story Time ran. The text of the email follows:

Subject: Great job, MSM!

Jay – pls tell your bosses there at Time Magazine thank you for the invitations to attend the upcoming functions. I’ll sure put a lot of thought into those invitations.

Then, have your editors retract Time’s most recent ridiculous lies about me supposedly giving Sean Hannity a radio interview wherein I supposedly talked about Christina Aguilera (that I slammed her for her Nat’l Anthem mistake, and called for her deportation, etc). You guys were fooled into running a fake story that even US Weekly pulled and apologized for their blunder. Total lies – and you guys (once again) even put quotation marks around things I have never uttered.

Then, Time needs to run an apology to Christina along with the retraction. (Add Hannity in your apology, too…those good folks don’t deserve to be in a caustic, untrue story about me.) Thanks much – keep up the great work, Time Magazine.”

Last May, Sarah was named by Time Magazine as one of the most influential people in the world. No doubt the invitations she’s talking about are to yet another function where she will be honored.

As Stacy Drake reported last week, both Us Weekly and Time Magazine were duped by a satire website that made up a story about Sarah Palin trashing Christine Aguilera’s performance at the Superbowl, when she flubbed the National Anthem. They claimed she did this in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.

Of course, the story was a lie, and the radio interview never happened. Neither Us Weekly nor Time bothered to contact Sarah or Sean for their “reporting.” They just did what many lazy, corrupt “journalists” do these days: Copy and paste.

These “satire” websites are popping up all over. No doubt due to the success of The Onion News Network. The problem is, more and more so-called “journalists“, as well as some regular people, are thinking these stories are real. In my news alerts there are three or four “satire” pieces a week on Sarah Palin alone!

This isn’t the first time a “journalist” has fallen for one of these fake stories either. They do it often.

When all of the chaos in Egypt started, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow gleefully reported that Sarah Palin was calling for the U.S. to invade the country. For full out war. Of course, Maddow got her information from a “satire” website that put that out story.

Maddow, a glittering jewel of colossal ignorance, and the prototypical MSNBC on air “talent” was called out immediately and ridiculed as she should have been. Her excuse? “Glenn Beck made me do it!” That’s right, the left wing loon blamed it all on Glenn Beck!

Here’s the deal: At this point, if you see something reported by the media, especially something about a Conservative, you should verify it before you believe it. Today’s “journalists” are lazy and corrupt. They will print anything to hurt a Conservative as fact, without doing a second of research, or follow up.They have an agenda, and since their integrity and reputation went out the door long ago, they have nothing to lose by becoming nothing more than propaganda machines.

Just a few weeks back the National Enquirer ran a story that Sarah’s husband was having an affair, something that ended up forcing the Anchorage police department to publicly deny, as the person named, was under police investigation. The Enquirer had no evidence, just an anonymous tip from one of those throw away email accounts. The tipster went by “palinmorals.” We have a few ideas about the who, what, and where, but since we can’t prove it, we’ll leave it at that.

Journalism is dead in America. I mean dead. The media has abused it’s Constitutional right to free speech by being sloppy, corrupt, and pathetic. America deserves better. Much better.

UPDATE:

It must be pointed out that while Sarah sent her email to Time’s Jay Newton-Small, she was NOT the author of the hit piece. In fact Newton-Small was the one who had Time correct their error.

Newton-Small is one of the few writers who has been fair to Sarah. We want to clear this up because we don’t want our readers going off on her. This wasn’t her fault, and in this case she was part of the solution, not the problem.

Thanks,
Gary

Sarah Palin On The Red Carpet At Time Magazine’s Most Influential Gala

Sarah Palin looked absolutely stunning as she, Todd, and daughter Piper walked the red carpet at Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People gala event.

Sarah was chosen one of the world’s most influential leaders. You can read more here.

Below Sarah is seen giving a shout out to the troops, something she does any time she makes remarks to a crowd.

We love Sarah Palin because she is a strong decisive leader, and just the person this nation needs if we are to turn things around, but as we say in Texas, she cleans up well too!

Sarah is a true world leader, destined for greatness, and she was simply radiating with poise and confidence. She is truly the brightest star, the North Star, wherever she appears.

Fox 5 New York has coverage of the event here.

Sarah Palin Chosen As One Of Time Magazine’s Most Influential Leaders

The list is out and Time Magazine has once again chosen the world’s 100 Most Influential People. Sarah was chosen as one of the worlds’s Most Influential Leaders, and showcased in their coverage as an Icon. Sarah is seen with Time’s assistant managing editor Radhika Jones, who compiled and edited the project for the magazine:

 

As Time is want to do, they chose someone of note to write Sarah’s introduction. In this case it was none other than Texan Ted Nugent:

If Sarah Palin played a loud, grinding instrument, she would be in my band. The independent patriotic spirit, attitude and soul of our forefathers are alive and well in Sarah. In the way she lives, what she says and how she dedicates herself to make America better in these interesting times, she represents the good, while exposing the bad and ugly.

She embraces the critical duty of we the people by participating in this glorious experiment in self-government. The tsunami of support proves that Sarah, 46, represents what many Americans know to be common and sensible. Her rugged individualism, self-reliance and a herculean work ethic resonate now more than ever in a country spinning away from these basics that made the U.S.A. the last best place.

We who are driven to be assets to our families, communities and our beloved country connect with the principles that Sarah Palin embodies. We know that bureaucrats and, even more, Fedzilla, are not the solution; they are the problem. I’d be proud to share a moose-barbecue campfire with the Palin family anytime, so long as I can shoot the moose.


Nugent is an author, activist and rock-‘n’-roll legend

That would be a fun BBQ to attend!

Also chosen for Time’s honor was Glenn Beck, and as luck would have it, Sarah was asked to write Glenn’s introduction:

 Who’d have thought a history buff with a quirky sense of humor and a chalkboard could make for such riveting television? Glenn’s like the high school government teacher so many wish they’d had, charting and connecting ideas with chalk-dusted fingers — kicking it old school — instead of becoming just another talking-heads show host. Self-taught, he’s become America’s professor of common sense, sharing earnestly sought knowledge with an audience hungry for truth. Glenn, 46, tackles topics other news shows would regard as arcane. Consider his desire to teach Americans about the history of the progressive movement: he’s doing to progressive what Ronald Reagan did to liberal — explaining that it’s a damaged brand.

His love of the Founding Fathers inspires others to learn and respect our nation’s history. Best of all, Glenn delights in driving the self-proclaimed powers-that-be crazy. (The whole country awaits the red phone ringing!) Even his critics (whom he annihilates in ratings) have to admire his amazing ability to galvanize everyday Americans to better themselves and peacefully engage their government. Though he sometimes dismisses himself as an aw-shucks guy or just a “rodeo clown,” he’s really an inspiring patriot who was once at the bottom but now makes a much needed difference from the very, very top.

Sarah was on Glenn Beck’s radio show today discussing their shared honor, as well as their affection for the Great State of Texas, and Sarah’s fondness for the neat little town of Giddings, where she and her family often stay when in the state.

Time also publishes a list of the 100 Least Influential People. Deliciously delicious is who makes the list, with the word loser beside his name.

Who knew American politics needed its own Kato Kaelin?

Ouch!
