David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, has a really important demand which requires everyone’s immediate attention:
“Sarah Palin has made serious accusations of journalistic malfeasance. Either Palin accurately described the tapes, or she did not. America’s news consumers need to know the truth about these serious accusations. The public in Alaska needs to know the truth so they are fully and correctly informed before they cast their ballots Tuesday. Palin has a responsibility to release the full, unedited tapes publicly and to all media.”
Now David Brock is not stupid. He knows that there are no “tapes” to release. The recording was left on the voicemail of a Joe Miller staffer, who has released the entire voicemail. Even Greg Sargent has given up on the “release the tapes” meme.
There is nothing Sarah Palin could release even if she wanted to. The recording speaks for itself and shows that the CBS affiliate in Alaska was hoping to find “registered sex offenders” at a Joe Miller rally or a fight, so that it could report that angle as the Joe Miller story of the day.
Is this the best Media Matters, with all its Soros money, can do?
I have a challenge, as well:
“Legal Insurrection Blog challenges David Brock to refuse to accept donations to Media Matters from currency manipulators and speculators who want to undermine our national sovereignty.”
