Mark Levin has posted (I believe it’s just the first night; I’ve only seen clips) a transcript of the interview between Charles Gibson and Gov. Palin that includes the parts that were edited out, and as my John Locke Foundation colleague Jon Ham notes:
…When you compare his interview with Barack Obama, and especially his interview with a truly unqualified John Edwards in 2004, in which the toughest question was whether he thought the Republicans were being too tough on him, you see the depth of Gibson’s bias.
But radio host Mark Levin has posted the clincher on his Web site: the transcript of the Gibson-Palin interview with the parts that were edited out marked in bold. It’s quite illuminating. If Palin had an expanded explanation that seemed thoughtful, it was cut. Read especially her answer on Russia. This was edited in a way to make it seem she wanted to start World War III.
He’s right — you’ve gotta read the version Levin posted. When are we going to stop calling them the “mainstream media?” They are dead.
