The good folks at "Fox & Friends" Monday morning credited NewsBusters for exposing the four hit pieces the New York Times published Sunday about Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
With the words "Palin Panic? NYT Puts Out 4 Hit Pieces In One Day" on the screen, co-host Gretchen Carlson teased (video embedded right):
In the meantime, we should talk a little New York Times, and the articles that they've been writing about Gov. Sarah Palin. In one day, in fact, I think that they had four articles on Sarah Palin, and last time I checked she was running for VP, wasn't she?
Co-host Steve Doocy ably took the handoff (h/t NBer blonde):
STEVE DOOCY, CO-HOST: Yes, she was. On the front page, there was something...
BRIAN KILMEADE, CO-HOST: Well, she's new.
DOOCY: ...yeah, she is new. There was a 3,100-page [word] item that started on page one. Maureen Dowd took a shot at her. Frank Rich, the former Broadway reviewer turned political pundit took a shot at her, and something else as well. It is on NewsBusters.org, which is a website that monitors the media, they said, obviously, Sarah Palin has got the liberal media in a panic, because for the New York Times to do four hit pieces on her in one day, the NewsBusters write, clearly they are in meltdown mode.
Thanks for the shoutout, gang. We greatly appreciate it.
