National Public Radio (NPR) Slanders Governor Palin’s Child
If the daughter of Governor Sarah Palin had flagrantly vandalized or stolen the property of someone, if she had deliberately caused the death of someone, if she had broken a traffic law, her identity could not be revealed by any news reports, because she is a minor child according to law. However, the totally unverified rumors about her that began on the far left blog, “The Daily Kos,” and were repeated on Andrew Sullivan’s “Daily Dish” have now been broadcast by NPR (National Public Radio) on the 6 pm newscast today, even though she is a child and has committed no legal transgressions. Apparently, because she is the daughter of a Republican politician, the mainstream media will not protect her against scurrilous lies. Although no mainstream media source has verified the allegations against the young girl at “The Daily Kos,” tragically the “self-righteous” NPR, and probably other respected media, has participated in the abuse of an innocent child, solely in the interest of promoting their favored political party – the Democrats.
Is this what passes for acceptable investigative journalism of today, when the journalist, ArcXIX, has NO identity and NO credible sources? I have been troubled and saddened with the Internet targeting of Governor Palin’s daughter, who is a minor. Is it legal for adults to post pictures of a seventeen-year-old child, discuss her anatomy in the photographs, speculate about various scandalous scenarios she “may” have been involved in, etcetera. These writers justify this abuse of the young girl, because one of her parents is a politician. I find it despicable and believe that we need legislation and laws to legally protect minor children on the Internet. No child should be subjected to these types of abuses from adults and no child should be stalked on the Internet by the likes of bloggers such as “The Daily Kos” and Andrew Sullivan. Even though Barack Obama has condemned this behavior, it is continuing with his supporters having created entire websites to broadcast untruths about this innocent child. She is seventeen, and still a minor child according to law, yet the law is not protecting her. Even worse, no one seems to care, not even Republicans.
