This you have got to see. Joe Scarborough lays it out — finally — and good for him. The MSM did not do their job. That’s what many, many have been saying all along. Watch Mika’s face. See the video @ http://sarah-palin-2012.blogspot.com/2008/12/media-dropped-ball.html
Joe says the following on this tape:
“If Sarah Palin had run Ted Stevens’s campaign in 2002, and somebody had bragged about it in the New Yorker, the press would have savaged her.”
“I’m convicting the press because they didn’t investigate this past summer, when they were sending all those people to Wasilla, a town of 9,000, they should have been going to Chicagoland.”
“To look at the background of a candidate who had only been in national politics for one year before he decided to run for president of the United States, and was born from the most corrupt political city in America. Do you not think, do we not think, that warranted an investigation? Not to suggest he did anything wrong, but to see what his background was?”
“But we sit here now, it’s almost Christmas, and we don’t know the truth about it. We don’t know the truth about any of this, because we haven’t done the investigative work.”
So was Barack Obama intimately involved in the campaign of Rod Blagojevich? Rahm Emanuel says he was.
But, wait, Mike Barnicle jumps in to ‘splain it:
SCARBOROUGH: You don’t know Obama. You can’t even tell me whether he ran the 2002 campaign of the most corrupt governor in America.
BARNICLE: I can tell you this much: he was a state senator then, and he ran that campaign about as much as I did.
SCARBOROUGH: Oh really? How do you know that?
BARNICLE: Just instinct.
