Sarah Palin

Prediction: How the Media Will Report Sarah Palin’s Book Tour

By on 11.18.09 | 1:35PM

The Detroit Free Press reports that hundreds camped out overnight to see Sarah Palin in Grand Rapids, Mich., and by 7 a.m., an estimatef 1,500 were already waiting in line -- for a 6 p.m. event.

Remember, the media elite view Palin's popularity as an existential threat. So how are they to cover the massive crowds that turn out for Palin's book tour?

First, expect the major national outlets (NBC, New York Times, etc.) to ignore this evidence of Palin's overwhelming popularity. They've been commissioning polls especially designed to show that Palin is unpopular, and they're not going to let facts get in their way.
