Today’s epic philippic comes from one Rachel D’Oro of the Associated Press, who breathlessly blurts out news of a scandal of scandals: Bristol Palin was paid $262,000 last year by the Candie’s Foundation to speak about the ill-advised nature of teenagers getting pregnant. A subject with which she has some familiarity.
Obviously, this is news because… because… well… did you see how much money she made?
Which is no one’s business but hers and the Candie’s Foundation, which despite the best efforts of the current administration to regulate who can be paid what is still free to pay whatever amount it wants to whomsoever it wants. But back to the story.
If you dig down, down, down — all the way to the eleventh paragraph — you discover this line:
The blog Palingates first reported the compensation figure.
The blog that even freakin’ E! Online, in an article about the subject loaded with snark, manages to identify as an anti-Palin site. Apparently this was missed by Ms. D’Oro.
She apparently also missed, on said blog, its link to a document screaming that Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy with Trig.
Obviously a qualified source for hard facts.
Really, Associated Press? Really?
You’re so desperate for anything to throw against the Palins, even as your favorite son Obama would rather shut down the federal government than stop spending the country into financial ruin you troll a demented hate blog for “research” into a non-story?
Wow, you’re awesome.
