Sarah Palin takes down Brian Williams

Brian Williams recently interviewed Obama and left alot of questions unanswered. The fact that Obama has mentioned another 'right wing conspiracy' in regard to his being a muslim is not too shocking to me. It has comes up in other sites and commentary. Palin is correct to jump all over Williams for not following up as is mentioned below.

Here is what was written at the Western Center For Journalism:

Sarah Palin blasts Brian Williams
By Caleb

Sarah Palin’s comments on last night’s Sean Hannity Show were dominated by critiques of the media, and one member of the media in particular.

She slammed Brian Williams’s interview of President Obama on Sunday, in which the president responded to recent polls showing a significant segment of the population believes he’s a Muslim.

After quipping, “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” Obama responded to Williams’s question about whether the doubt about his religion reflected his inability to communicate with voters with an answer that had echoes of Hillary Clinton’s “vast right-wing conspiracy” comment.

“The facts are the facts,” Obama told Williams. “We went through some of this during the campaign — there is a mechanism, a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly.”

Palin thought Williams should have pressed him on what he was implying with these comments.

“My first reaction was listening to Brian Williams and wondering, ‘Brian, that’s some stealth reporting. You’re not even going to follow up and ask him what in the heck is Barack Obama talking about. What is he insinuating’?

I was pretty appalled at that notion that Brian Williams was just letting him get away with that kind of false accusation that there is some kind of suggested right-wing conspiracy again, especially knowing that the media still — the mainstream, lame-stream media — they’re in his back pocket, still.”
