Sarah Palin’s not letting up on her media bashing.
By ANDY BARR
After providing a comment to a news outlet doing a story about her, she’s now bashing the Daily Caller for “sloppiness” in its reporting.
The story attempted to call out Palin for working with a production company on “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” that received $1.2 million in tax credits for filming in Alaska — a credit she signed into law as governor. The report cited two minor conservative media personalities in Washington to claim Palin was facing a “heap of criticism from Washington conservative pundits.”
After responding to the story — which Palin said “most people won’t even notice” — with a comment to the Daily Caller, the former halfterm Alaska governor turned to Facebook to lash the conservative media outlet.
“Goodness, cleaning up the sloppiness of reporters could be a full time job,” Palin wrote.
“In response to The Daily Caller’s online inquiry, I gave them a statement that the writer buried on his story’s second page (which most people won’t even notice — I didn’t even notice it) after he spent the first page completely spinning a situation to give the impression that Alaska’s film production tax credit legislation was somehow solely my idea hatched up to benefit the Palins years before I was ever involved in a documentary series on TLC/Discovery Channel,” she continued.
The halfterm governor then launched into a long explanation of how the tax credit is similar to ones in other states hoping to court filmmakers and was pushed by Alaska lawmakers hoping to attract more business to the state.
“Having to set the record straight on my Facebook page yet again is further proof that the media can’t be trusted even to print a statement in a manner that people can read,” she concluded.
