Palin says she owes nothing to the mainstream media

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin discussed with fellow Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren her refusal to give the media (or her supporters) a schedule of her ongoing “Our Nation” bus tour, but she didn’t address why she needed the media to help promote it.

“I’m like: A. I don’t think I owe anything to the mainstream media,” Palin told Van Susteren. “I think it would be a mistake for me to become some kind of conventional politician and doing things the way that it’s always been done with the media in terms of relationship with them, telling them to come along and ‘We’ll orchestrate this, we’ll script this and we’ll basically write a story for you’ media about what we’re doing every day.

“No, I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop is going to be, you know, if they – we’ll do a stop, we’ll do a lot of OTRs, off the records, we’ll meet a lot of great Americans and then I’ll write about that at the end of the day and it’s not about me, it’s not a publicity-seeking tour, it’s about highlighting the great things about America and the media can figure out where we’re going if they do their investigative work or they’re going to keep, kind of as you put it, going crazy trying to figure out what we’re doing here.

Although the full interview isn’t scheduled to air on Fox News until tonight, a preview video showing the exchange has been posted to the organization’s website:

According to “two sources with direct knowledge” of the tour, Palin will be bringing her bus tour to Iowa in June.

It is also worth noting that to date, and despite several inquires by The Iowa Independent, Palin has still not addressed a passage in her book where she appears to have mistaken flood-ravaged Cedar Rapids, which she described as a “slice of Americana,” with the very non-flood damaged town of Cedarburg, Wisc.

… While it may be easy to excuse a politician for confusing towns along a long campaign trail, this error happens against the backdrop of numerous concerns about facts in Palin’s book. The Associated Press dedicated a team of reporters to the book and found numerous discrepancies, ranging from her contention that President Barack Obama pushed the through a bailout package that actually was achieved by his Republican predecessor to her statements with regard to travel expenses.

But the Cedar Rapids stop should have been memorable because of the one thing that Palin appears to have forgotten: The flood-ravaged neighborhood she toured.

Long before she joined the campaign, McCain appeared to have made the Iowa floods a priority. Despite calls by Gov. Chet Culver for both McCain and Barack Obama to not tie up precious state resources in the immediate aftermath of the flood by visiting the state, McCain toured flood-damaged sites in Iowa on June 20, 2008.

When local Republican officials complained that McCain and Palin were not making time to see the devastation in Cedar Rapids first-hand at the time of the September airport rally, the campaign made time concessions so that the short walking tour could take place. A month later, in October 2008, both the McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee targeted Iowans with mailing pieces and robocalls that indicated Democrats “went on vacation” instead of helping flood victims.

The stop described in Palin’s book might very well be one she’ll “never forget,” but it did not take place in Cedar Rapids. …
