Palin predicts media
will declare Obama winner

Washington Post, by Erik Wemple

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/4/2012 5:49:37 AM

In a chat with Neil Cavuto of Fox Business Network, Sarah Palin issues a prediction right after last night’s debate. “Ninety percent of the liberal media — the lamestream media — they’re going to say, of course, that Barack Obama won the debate.” Though Palin is generally crafty enough to make highly squishy statements about stuff, this one is slightly fact-checkable. Running down just a few of the institutions commonly associated with media mainstreamness, we discover that perhaps Palin needs to recalibrate just a touch:

Comments:
I assume she didn't watch it, or if she watched it, didn't understand it.

To be honest I thought the media would also declare 0bama the winner because that's what they've been doing his whole term, regardless of any evidence to the contrary. I'm still shocked and cautious at the left medias reaction to 0bama's predictable performance last night.

I'm sure our Sarah undestood the debate quite well, no matter what OP thinks.

As my wife said, "If Obummer had won, the whole first hour of little Georgie on GMA would have been about it."

They gave Mitt about 4 minutes.
And Chrissy Mathews meltdown is precious. LOL

I'm a Sarah Palin fan but I think she got this one wrong. Comments from, of all people, Maddow, Matthews, Carville, and Maher bear that out.

Go away. Please. The term "lamestream media" if for talk show hosts, not for a former governor and VP candidate. Grow up. Or get a talk show.

"See, see!" cried the Wimple. "We're not biased toward obama".

Maybe this morning after their boy was found on the battlefield with his arms, legs and head cut off.

But... you just wait a day or two. All the king's horses and all the king's men WILL put Humpty Dumpty together again.

That was my assumption as well. However, it was hard to see how they could declare obama the winner and get away with it this time. Romney was great! Palin is very conservative and she's still skeptical about President Romney and might have a good reason for that. We shall see, but Romney any given day over obit.

Before you post, note that Palin talked to Cavuto. His show comes on at 4 pm.
She made the commend hours before the debate.

And yes, the LSM is giving the win to Romney, but read the usual snarky paragraphs.

Now the hope Obummer will come back and do better.

She should be pointing out that the MEDIA is responsible for Obama's poor performance. Since they chose to coddle him for the past 4 yrs, Obama has no experience answering questions or deflecting challenges.
Gotta love it---Obama done in by the adoring sycophants!

Give the media a day or two for the shock to wear off and for them to get their marching orders from the 0bama camp. I figure by the weekend, they will have figured out a way of making 0bama seem like the winner.

Listening to talk radio (what's left of it, anyway)up here in MA, I'm amazed at how many people are now calling in saying "Sarah was right". And then enumerating the MANY times Gov. Palin was correct, if shocking, in what she said.
The entire country thought that no matter what happened last night, it would be spun to a great obama victory. Because that is ALL that we have had since the great (sarcasm)speech of 2004.
I think one of two things will happen. Something really nasty will emerge from Chicago, and/or in the days to come, the chris matthews of this world will re-write history.
I'm pretty sure, poster, that Gov. Palin did understand what was said last night and what happened. She is a pretty smart woman.

The kindest thing the Boston Globe could say about Obama this morning was that he was "cautious." One of their columnists said it was a knockout for Romney; another said that "an ineffective Obama falls flat."

Palin appears to be trying to minimize anything Romney does. That kind of petty spitefulness is unbecoming, to say the least.

Proving once again that Sarah Palin makes liberal's heads explode, not matter how long she's been NOT RUNNING FOR ANYTHING. It's a wondrous thing, and I hope if somehow Romney beats the mainstream media and becomes president, he'll appoint her to something very high profile so the MSM will stay distracted. And crazy.

Believe it or not, McClatchy newpapers did not declare Romney the winner at least for the first paragraphs. I didn't read beyond that. Loved the fact that Lehrer let the candidates really talk. Liberals unhappy that he didn't ask loaded questions? Liberal caller on C-Span: But they didn't talk about social issues such as (you fill in the dots). No, you dummy, it was on the economy. All logic lost on left.

Considering all the damage Palin has done to the Republican party, I wish she'd please shut up and go off to cheer Bristol on "Dancing with the Stars" or Todd on whatever reality show he is on these days. Every time she opens her mouth on TV, any independents who are watching are reminded she and Romney are from the same party, and he loses votes. I disagree with the poster who said s/he wishes Romney would appoint her to some position when he wins. So far Romney has handled this "maverick" perfectly, avoiding her like the plague.

Erik, Erik! Have you forgotten what rhetoric is? What Sarah meant was that the left will reflexively declare the president the winner even though she doesn't. Judging from what I have seen so far she is correct. It's early times so that may change as the media absorbs the fallout.

Give the MSM time people!
Romney slam dunked Obama so badly that MSM can't help but say Romney was the winner. However, in a few days someone in the media will come up with a twisted logic that Obama didn't do that bad. A few days later it will be expanded. A few push polls later and they will even be declaring Obama the winner of this debate. Just give them some time.

Here, I'll give it a start.

"You know, Romney won but he used such aggressive tactics that he turned off many of the voters. Our polls have shown that a majority of the people don't like Romney's aggressive approach. Obama's inability to debate well is a net plus for him because people like his compassion. Romney may have initially been pronounced the winner but you know Obama is the one who gained the most from that debate because people have decided that this is the kind of leader they want. What a disaster that debate has turned out to be for Romney."

Palin did a seven-minute chat with Cavuto and it was very substantive. The little puff about the lamestream media took 5 seconds and is still arguably true. This whole WaPo idiot article missed that as well as a few posters here. So her comment was a bit overstated. So what. I'll translate for the not-so-brite. The media is still in the tank for Zero. Does anyone argue with that?

Our rejoicing should not cause us to let down our guard, for all that the debate was like an exploding cigar for the media. They haven't had time to get their stories straight. They are not going to take this lying down. They will be back - like the monsters in horror movies that arise again and attack after they are thought to have been killed.

The story -narrative, if one prefers- has yet to be constructed to explain what happened last night. Leftists are still wiping the remains of the cigar off their faces, Their ears are still ringing. They remain dazed, disoriented, not quite sure what happened to them. This won't last long. They will be back, and with a vengeance.

But how? What line of attack to take now? It certainly seems that their Icarus has fallen to earth, blasted out of the sky by a combination of his own hubris and Mitt Romney's obviously superior intellect.

It will be interesting to see how they try to wriggle out of this predicament. The stock responses of racism and class warfare will be difficult to use here. Blaming the moderator can only carry the load so far. Perhaps it was an aberration, a momentary lapse due to fatigue from overwork?

The ante has been logarithmically raised for the next debate. One can be confident Leftist heads are huddled, emails and phone lines are buzzing, emergency meetings are being scheduled to develop and implement plan B.

Why can't she bring herself to praise Romney? She has yet to fully endorse him and for some apparently selfish reason, is reserving her option to snipe at him.

No, President Romney will have no need of any service the former demi-gov might offer.

I wish everyone on OUR side, including Sarah Palin would STOP talking about obama and concentrate on what Mitt Romney is doing. I agree with #4, #8, and #25. IMO, who CARES what the demonrats OR the "media" is going to do to exact revenge against Mitt Romney? He can take care of himself. Enough with the wringing of hands and whining about "unfairness" of the "media". Let them bring it on!

Face it, Obama could have walked to the podium, sang "Basketball Jones," lit a cigarette and left, and certain elements would have declared him the winner. The only complaint you're going to hear will be Mitt's lack of "specifics," from the same clowns who were satisfied with specifics like Hope and Change and Yes We Can in 2008.

It was a bigger blowout than Reagan in 1980.

I watched Barack's traveling press secretary, a young woman who appeared to be dressed for halloween, and she said that the U.S. doesn't need an attack dog as president.
I have no idea what the basis of her comment was.
And I also saw the rev.al last night as he tried to come up with any positive for obama, and the rev said that because romney was so specific, joe biden would use that against ryan. (the rev apparently was talking about income tax policy.)
Old Joe will be completely confused by the numbers if he tries to attack ryan on income tax policy.)

By the end of the week the dishonest "fact checks" will have turned the outcome of the debate into an Obama "win". Palin is correct.

Wemple is just pouting because she called him on it before it could really get going.

OP, Palin knows the media's MO. Personal feelings aside, she's nailed this one.

Sarah was on Hannity last night and was very complimentary of Mitt and the debate.

#26 I agree. We should stop listening to the other side. Instead we should be shouting from the rooftops that our guy is the clear winner and the leader this country needs. We need to be louder and drown out the rats on the other side.

Go back to sleep 8, the coffee won’t help you. Sarah said what we all know to be true. If it had not been such a disaster for 0, the media would have certainly done exactly what she said they would do. However, since the clock cleaning was so completely thorough, it will take the media a few days to convince Americans they didn’t really see what they saw.

It's not clear to me that the OP really "understands it".

I figured everyone would call it for Obama too. Conditioning? It was a safe assumption - especially if asked to comment right after the debate.

I was shocked to find out LATER that they were actually declaring this one an Obama victory.

Jeesh. Some people just LOOOVVEE attacking way Palin too much.....It's, uh, kinda weird.

The past is always a predictor of the future. Why wouldn't she predict that the LSM would declare 0b@$tard the winner? The problem was, 0bit was soooooooooo very bad, the LSM couldn't declare him the winner without totally giving away the farm.

The LSM is up on their hind legs, declaring there is no bias. If they had declared 0bit the winner, every knee-pad JournoLister would have had to concede bias.

OP...
Did it ever occur to you that Sarah was the smartest one on this?
By her prediction that the media would, unfairly and with great bias, declare Obama to be the winner of the debate, she virtually assured that they would not--that they would call it right.
I am convinced that the media's pride would not let them follow Sarah's prediction, and they would call the debate right if just to spite Sarah.

Sarah did an interview with Hannity after the debate and was very exuberant with her praise of Romney's performance. I think within the next couple of days, she will be proven correct (yet again) in her prediction of the dem spin machines attempt to turn a Romney win into 0bama's. Note, she didn't say they would succeed, but that they would try.

#4 & #13 you are the snarky ones. You can always tell a Palin article by the number of posts like the 60,000 who lined up to see her during the 2008 election. Some are correct - just wait until the "lamestream" begins throwing roses in a few days to their annointed one. Later in the evening Palin gave a very good report on Romney - she loves our Republic & still sounds like a typical American patriot.

While I do not fully agree with Sarah Palin that the media will declare Obama winner, I understand why she says it.

You must understand that at this point, Sarah is NOT seeking the presidency but is trying to be a good wingman in the service of the republicans. What she is doing is to highlight the biasness of the media ahead of time before it actually occurs.

The fact that people like Matthews and Maher sound doleful, does not mean that they will not eventually somehow try to spin this as an Obama winner after the second debate if Obama does better. I think they have to sound a little negative at this point because Obama came across really badly compared to Romney last night and if they were to try to spin it this early after the debate, people would still remember and would correctly view them as sycophants. The leftist media is going to wait until this debate goes into the memory hole and then the spin will begin.

Al Gore has made the first stab at explaining what happened last night. It seems that Obama was a victim of altitude sickness. This supports the widely held theory that Gore is insane, perhaps because he lost the presidency to GWB of all people.

Altitude sickness. Not enough oxygen to the brain. Sure. That explains everything.

I am waiting to see who will be the first to play the race card on last night's Obama debacle. It's bound to come. Rich white bully beats up struggling black intellectual and social activist? Too crude. What, then?

I saw Palin on Hannity late last night and she was extremely happy with Romney and praised him. She was simply saying she thought the msm would do what they have always done - protect their boy - and some have tried. It is just that this train wreck was too big and too live on TV even for them to try to cover up.

I also heard her tell Hannity that she thinks Chicago will strike back. Of that, I'm sure. I will not be surprised if some kind of invented emergency arises that takes all this off the front page or maybe takes the next debate off the front page.

Good golly, the haters like to find a cloud in every silver lining, don't they. Sarah is absolutely right about the media. They declared Sloppy Joe Biden the winner after she wiped the floor with him. The difference here is that expectations were never that high for Joe. But this debate exposed O for the lightweight he is. Even his media supporters couldn't deny it.

Well, I think Wemple made a correct statement--she may need to re-calibrate a little--but just a little! Lehrer is already catching flak from the lames for the way he moderated. And they rea already making excuses for 0--he pulled his punches, Romney played fast and loose with the facts, blah, blah, blah. Sarah was right in kind, just not in degree--and even that might change in a couple of days, as others have suggested.BTW, I do agree with a prior poster--Palin should ditch phrases like "lamestream media", it isn't becoming to someone in her position...

Like everyone wearing a suit in Bristol and the majority of people in your NCAA tournament pool, President Barack Obama picked No. 4 seed Michigan State to win the national championship. That prediction up in smoke on Sunday, with Connecticut’s 60-54 upset (but not really an upset) win over the Spartans. The official UConn sports Twitter account was all too happy to remind the president about his pick.(Snip for Tweet)POTUS has opted for the safety of a “wisdom of crowds” approach to his NCAA tournament picks in the past, foregoing the trailblazing tactics that are sink or swim for poolers.

The online portal, which had been handling millions of visitors over the past few days as enrollment pushed past 6 million, was “down for maintenance” starting at around 3:20 a.m. Officials said it returned to functionality at 9 a.m. Health and Human Services officials said the problem was a software bug discovered overnight that was being repaired. The site goes through routine maintenance at night, but this incident spilled into high-profile hours on the final day for most people

The “impacts” report of the IPCC is out today, and we’ll try to get through some of the highlights of the thousand-page plus report. (Always reminds me of Churchill’s note about an overlong memo: “This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.” We’ll take the risk.) Turns out that an acquaintance of mine helped write the FAQ portion of the report. But we don’t need to read the report, because Barbara Boxer is on the job: “In California, we can just look out the window to see climate change’s impacts – from the driest year on

The Tampa, FL driver behind “Redneck Roadrage/Instant Karma,” a viral YouTube video in which an aggressive driver gets his sweet, sweet comeuppance, spoke to WTSP about the incident, and said the video had led to an arrest of the driver. Authorities were able to identify the driver from the video. He has been charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene, and, best of all, not wearing a seatbelt. “Honestly, looking back, I feel kind of bad for laughing,” said the driver, who declined to give her name. “But at the same time, it’s kind of funny.” “None of us are good drivers.

A 43-year-old man was swept out to sea Sunday during a baptism ceremony at a coastal park in northern Santa Barbara County. Two other people were also dragged into the ocean but returned to shore during the early morning service at Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve. But an extensive search by emergency teams failed to find the missing man by nightfall, the Santa Maria Times reported. Jesus Christ Light of the Sky, the Santa Maria church that put on the ceremony, performs similar baptisms two or three times a year, Pastor Mauro Cervantes told the paper. Most of the 25 people

The Obama administration is threatening public safety by deliberately hampering immigration law and releasing aliens with criminal records, according to a new review of internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement data. A Center for Immigration study to be released Monday and obtained in advance by The Daily Caller, found that last year ICE reported nearly 722,000 encounters with illegal or criminal immigrants. But ICE officers filed immigration charges against less than 195,000 aliens. “According to ICE personnel, the vast gap between the number of encounters reported and the number of aliens put on the path to removal exists because officers are not permitted

One of Russian President Vladimir Putin´s closest ex-advisers has claimed that the ex-KGB agent ultimately wants to reclaim Finland for Russia. Andrej Illiaronov, Putin´s economic adviser between 2000 and 2005 and now senior member of the Cato Institute think tank, said that "parts of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic States and Finland are states where Putin claims to have ownership." "Putin´s view is that he protects what belongs to him and his predecessors," he said. When asked if Putin wishes to return to the Russia of the last tsar, Nicholas II, Illiaronov said: "Yes, if it becomes possible." Illiaronov admits

The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight was in emotional turmoil over the break-up of his marriage, his family have revealed. Speaking about the mystery for the first time, the wife and daughter of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah said the 53-year-old pilot had been distracted and withdrawn in the weeks before the aircraft’s disappearance – and refused pleas to attend some marriage counselling sessions. Three weeks after Flight MH370 went missing with 239 crew and passengers aboard, investigators in Malaysia believe that someone – possibly the captain – deliberately steered the Boeing 777 off course after communications were cut.

A substitute teacher in the suburbs of Cincinnati was escorted off campus earlier this month because he allegedly sought students’ help to extricate himself from a Nigerian lottery scam. The help apparently involved the sum of $100. Officials at Fairfield Middle School in Fairfield, Ohio say the sub, Jay Deutsch, also told a female student she was attractive in a way the student found creepy, according to local ABC affiliate WCPO. Deutsch allegedly made the comments on March 7 while he was teaching a gifted social studies class. It was first period.

After Barack Obama went on Zach Galifinakis’s Between Two Ferns to push Healthcare.gov, there wasn’t much else he could do in pop culture without jumping his own personal shark. This week’s cold open on SNL imagined a future in which he did. In the final 48 hours before the deadline to sign up for healthcare, Obama’s aides forced him to be photographed in Pharrell’s hat and alongside Kim Kardashian and Harry Styles. And “a cat dressed as Elsa from Frozen.” And BatKid. And the Pope. As a last ditch effort, they even brought back Kate McKinnon’s Justin Bieber to do the most

As a story, it doesn’t attain to the level of the worst of the cheesy Biblical movies made in the fifties. Aronofsky broke the first and sacred rule of storytelling: you have to make the audience care. We never cared about Noah even after he was kind to a wounded, half dog – half snake. (No, that wasn’t a mistake.) We never cared for any of the characters. I kept hearing people say this movie is deep. It isn’t. It is psychologically pedestrian. The

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful.

Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs.

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.
