Sarah Palin in the Fox News Bubble
As I said on last week's podcast, non-Fox media outlets must stop using clips of Sarah Palin on FOX as part of their coverage of her. I sense that Keith Olbermann already gets this. If Sarah Palin wants to come on his show (or any non-FOX outlet) then footage of her can run. But if she remains in the FOX/Facebook safety bubble and embargoes other outlets, they should embargo her admittedly lively diction and attractiveness. If what she said on FOX is part of the story, show it on the screen and read it without allowing her to charm anybody.
And everytime a non-FOX outlet shows her at a Tea Party Rally, they have an obligation to tell their audience if she is a paid speech-maker at that function.
