And now, a short study in cognitive dissonance, from ABCNews.com’s The Note.
The final paragraph begins:
BOTTOM LINE: Sarah Palin, once again, has found a way to become part of the story.
However, earlier in the same article, the authors admit:
[Palin's] words, of course, amount to a rebuttal of those who have called her out for using violent images to “target” Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and other Democratic lawmakers during the 2010 election.
Note… “those who have called her out.”
You see, Palin didn’t “[find] a way to become part of the story,” she was made a part of the story by those who wanted to smear and attack her. All she did was respond to the attacks.
In other words, this article is self-refuting… the earlier paragraph giving the lie to the last. Almost as though neither of the authors had bothered to read what they had written.
That’s the Dinosaur Media for ya… all those fact checkers and editors and People Who Know More Than Us Bloggers. (For the humor deprived… this paragraph is mostly satire. If you cannot determine which parts, consult your nearest conservative.)
