Another Politico Hit Job

Editorial Note: I missed Hogan’s post. Bumping this down botton. His is better.

Here is the latest hit job on Sarah Palin. There is just one problem with it. It doesn’t appear to be true.

Take, for example, this bit:

According to a source familiar with the situation, she backed out of planned interviews with conservative talk-show hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin the morning she was scheduled to talk to them.

Mark Levin is responding to this on his Facebook page.

This is a flat out lie. Sarah Palin never backed out of any interview with me. Period. And John Martin, the reporter, never contacted me to ask me directly. I insist on a retraction.

Likewise, the CEO of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, Charlie Davis, is disputing the Politico article.

The Politico has a well documented history of wanting to be first rather than right in breaking news.

They famous got Fred Thompson’s fundraising numbers wrong back in 2008.

They declared John Edwards would be dropping out in 2008 when he did not.

Note that it was also Jonathan Martin in the Politico back in 2008 who announced Fred Thompson would be dropping out of the race before the Iowa primary.
