Sarah Palin's Bus Tour Is Making the Media Look Really Stupid

Sarah Palin’s nationwide bus tour is proving a few things about the mainstream media:

  • They’re really obsessed with Sarah Palin.
  • They’re really whiny when they don’t get their own way.
  • They really don’t think before they speak or write.

To be perfectly fair, they’ve proved all three facts countless times before, but they’re going overboard to demonstrate their adolescent tendencies this time around.

For instance, take one of CBS’s latest reports on her, as written by Brian Montopoli…

“Sarah Palin and her advisers are refusing to tell members of the media where she is going on her current bus tour and the former Alaska governor seems to be enjoying the cat and mouse game that’s resulted.”

This is news? Really?

But wait! There’s more! Since she isn’t informing them of her plans in advance, “this has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles all trying to make sure they don’t lose sight of the Palin bus.”

“It adds up to a dangerous situation,” explains CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro. “I just hope to God that one of these young producers with a camera whose bosses are making them follow Sarah Palin as a potential Republican candidate don’t get in a car crash, because this is dangerous.”

If that’s the case, why don’t they just stop following her? She isn’t a presidential candidate at this point. So they’re just wasting gas and ‘destroying the environment’ by needlessly following her in their gas-guzzling vans and other vehicles.

The simplicity of the solution to this “dangerous situation” doesn’t dawn on Corasaro though, who isn’t quite done embarrassing himself. He adds, “It feels like she’s baiting us and treating us like paparazzi and make the ‘lamestream media’ appear that way.”

Well… If the flash photography fits…

Meanwhile, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir goes a step further in accusing Palin of illegally depicting the American flag on her bus. Apparently, there’s a law that prohibits public use of the Stars and Stripes for advertising purposes. Who knew?

I wonder how long it took MSNBC to dig up that one? Now if they could only pay that much attention to America’s real problems, they might have something to brag about.

As it is now, they’re just pathetic.
