You Have GOT To Be Kidding Me, Even The AP Can’t Fall This Low

Thank God it didn't happen to Kahlid Sheikh Mohammed

Sarah Palin’s personal email account has been hacked and its’ contents divulged to the public. I repeat, personal email account. This is a disgusting, immoral and illegal act, which should have every decent person up in arms and filled with revulsion at such behavior.

This is why I could not believe my eyes when reading this piece from the AP..

WASHINGTON (AP) – Hackers broke into the Yahoo! e-mail account that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin used for official business as Alaska’s governor, revealing as evidence a few inconsequential personal messages she has received since John McCain selected her as his running mate.

The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions about the propriety of the Palin administration’s use of nongovernment e-mail accounts to conduct state business. The practice was revealed months ago – prior to Palin’s selection as a vice presidential candidate – after political critics obtained internal e-mails documenting the practice by some aides.

What??? This is the point of the story, “raises new questions”? Read the entire article and you will not find a word of condemnation toward the culprits of this theft or sympathy toward Gov. Palin, whose personal privacy has been severely violated. All we read is that “The disclosure Wednesday raises new questions” blah, blah, blah. Imagine if this had happened to Kahlid Sheikh Mohamed, or God forbid a journalist, we’d have every paper in the country calling for a commission to investigate this “severe breach of privacy”, and Patrick Fitzgerald would have a new job. I have no words to describe how despicable this is. Not only is the media in the tank for Obama, they’ve lost every shred of human decency in the process.

They need to be taught a lesson and there is only one way to do that. Do not patronize them. Don’t listen to what they say, don’t read what they write, and most importantly don’t do anything that helps contribute to their bottom line. Media at the end of the day is a business and it’s about time unsatisfied customers take their business elsewhere.
