The Boston Globe is pushing the totally discredited Sarah Palin rape-kit story; no news organization at this stage of the game can push such smears without truly exposing their bias. The Palin rumor mill is being assisted by the Mainstream Media wing of Obama’s campaign.
But the truth is that there is no record of a rape victim ever being charged for a rape kit by Wasilla; there’s no evidence Mayor Palin knew about the policy or took any action on it either way; and no record of a victim’s insurance company being charged by the town.
How does an alleged “newspaper” make such a claim without any facts whatsoever?
The story is old news in the new media. Left-leaning Slate.com called it “a nasty and untrue rumor.” National Review’s Jim Geraghty, who has written exhaustively on the story calls it “unsupported by the facts.” But at the Obama-Uber-Alles Boston Globe, they call it “news.”
We have come to the point in the media’s treatment of Gov. Sarah Palin where even the fig leaf of pretense is gone. The press has openly chosen sides and has stopped apologizing for it.
