FOX News dishes the gossip, pwns self
In publishing this news report, FOX has pwned itself. If there was ever any doubt that the media is a marketing tool for politics, not a source of objective news, there can be none now. Fox Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron admitted in as many words that the press knew that Palin was a complete incompetent, but kept it to themselves.
We all know how this happened. Some combination of confidentiality clauses, personal threats, and unspoken (or spoken) mandates from the top end of the media sources ensured that nobody would dish any unapproved dirt before the election. It doesn't matter who orchestrated it, or precisely how it happened. The fact is, not one journalist had the ability or the inclination to try to save America from having a virtually illiterate vice president.
And we think we have a free press.
