Bolton Tells NewsBusters 'Palin Coverage Has Been Vile'

ST. PAUL, Minn.-- Former United Nations ambassador John Bolton came down strongly Wednesday on how the press have treated Sarah Palin since she was announced as John McCain's running mate last Friday:

I think some of the coverage of Governor Palin has been vile. Period.

Talking to NewsBusters at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, Bolton said (video embedded right):

I don't understand the media's focus. I think they're not being fair in in how they look at what she's done as governor of Alaska, and her entire executive branch career in terms of especially being the chairman of the Alaska Oil and Natural Gas Conservation Commission.
