The Network [ABC] teased the interview on its web site this afternoon with this eye-popping bulletin: “Exclusive: Gov. Sarah Palin warns war may be necessary if Russia invades another country.”
But the transcript showed that she was merely repeating Mr. McCain’s position and had not used provocative language. And we’re wondering if the McCain camp is reconsidering its selection of ABC, since it hyped the teaser to sound like Ms. Palin was ready to press the button.
Sheesh! I hope to do more on this later when I have time, but for now it seems the only rational move for any Republican candidate is to make an independent video of all interviews—-the distortions in the press of what Palin said and Gibson’s own misquotes and misrepresentations, make this the only rational course.
