Sarah Palin: There is not truth coming out of mainstream media. “I want to help them,” she added. I have a journalism degree.

Sarah Palin Says She Wants to Help the Mainstream Media 

ABC News’ Sheila Marikar (@SheilaYM)reports:

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network posted online Wednesday, Sarah Palin once again called the mainstream media “irrelevant” and said she wants to help them.

“Much of the mainstream media is already becoming so irrelevant because there is not balance,” she told CBN’s David Brody. “There is not truth coming out of mainstream media. And I know that first hand. I live with it every day.”

“I want to help them,” she added. “I have a journalism degree. That is what I studied.”

Palin did not mention her most recent collaboration with the mainstream media – appearing on the cover of Newsweek and sitting down for an interview with the magazine. She praised that piece in an interview with Fox News last week.

Palin also shared her thoughts on Twitter, saying she tries to use up her 140-character allotment as often as possible because “I want that space. I want to get that thought across,” and dished on her favorite movies: “’Hoosiers,’ ‘Rudy,’ any of those underdog stories.”

She did not offer any new information about her 2012 election story.

    if it hasnt accured to you before it might now! Sarah Palin is setting up her platform to take over the world. Anti media..Media has not done what they should concerning this liar, cheat and fraud. So if by chance they want to actually REPORT the truth about her curiously abusive, unethical and incompetnet record as a conservative lawmaker, cough cough, they will be lying! You see now? Palin knows firsthand cause the media is lying…. She lives it everyday. What she lives is a media that has given her credibility where she had none….Will they render HER.. Sarah whackadoodle from Wasilla Palin irrelevent? Why haven’t they yet?

      I think it may be simpler than that (as she is a simple person). With everything going on with Murdoch, she’s probably putting herself out there to other news media since she knows she’ll be out of a job with fox in the near (hopefully) future.

      Her inability to connect the dots in her ongoing battle to disparage the MSM’s accuracy in reporting to herself is stunning. Palin works for the #1 TV network that makes a huge profit from skewing information to reflect a specific POV and by sending a specific message to its viewers that it hopes will influence the way they think/act/vote. She calls herself a Christian, but it is hard for me to match this claim to her words/actions. My Bible tells a Christian to clean up his/her own act BEFORE telling someone else to clean up theirs. She has a mote in her eye that she refuses to acknowledge is there but sees no hypocrisy in criticizing others about the mote in theirs. I perceive Palin’s complaints about the MSM’s reporting on her as an attempt by her to control the type of information about herself that is available for the public to peruse. I also view it as an attempt by her to demand the right to censor any negative, unflattering information about herself and prevent it from being released to the public. I sense the initial steps of a snow-job that is under construction. A snow-job with the intended purpose of boosting her chances at winning the Republican Party nomination for president in 2012. She is issuing a warning to the MSM that if she runs for president in 2012, its reporters had better avoid asking her questions she doesn’t want to address or risk being denied access to her and her campaign staff. I’m not trying to promote a new conspiracy theory about Palin in rendering this analysis. I’m only keeping my mind open to the possibility that she will do anything to get what she wants or thinks she deserves, and because I have seen the MSM dance to Palin’s tunes in the past and assist her in shaping the image of herself that she wanted the public to see–an image that was/is not an accurate portrayal of the real Sarah Palin.

    She should have added, “I am incoherent, uneducated, and unprincipled as well. I can teach them how to prevaricate with style and persistence.”

    What she lives every day is being liar and spreading her lies in the media every chance she gets. She can’t even get the ‘who, what, where, when, how, why’ straight about her own 7th pregnancy. She can’t write her own op-eds or facebook posts. Will someone please stick a dirty sock in mouth.

    Where I went to college you majored in Journalism/Communications because everything else was too hard. Just one step below that is a major in Philosphy.

      Actually, I don’t know what school you went to but philosophy was often a minor for a lot of people at my school who went into pre-med (biology and zoology). The reasoning was if you didn’t make it into med school, law school was the alternative. A philosophy major actually has to write well, understand and be competent doing proofs and pass some pretty rigorous courses in logic. I am pretty certain Ms Palin would have benefitted from some of the logic courses.

      If Payme Failin’ Paylin can’t debate or discuss her way out of a paper bag with her word salads, she’d be totally lost and going ’round & ’round in word salad circles like a dog chasing its tail, if you even mention the word “Philosphy” let alone ask her to have a discussion on it. Much less take a minor in Philosphy.

      I mean can you just imagine? –Nah, I can’t.

    Ha! I knew it would come down to Christian Broadcasting Network. Of course! When things don’t pan out with the movie, they’ll give her a show.

    But isn’t her degree “Communications”?

    You know, don’t care. Enough with the prevarication. I’ve gone as far as I can with being fair. I’m gonna take that to mean that she doesn’t have a degree. If she can’t say what it is, and be firm about it, there isn’t one.
    She should have stuck with the communications meme, because there’s simply no way she DID what was REQUIRED for that degree.
    I think it’s strongly likely that she may have attended graduation ceremonies, but needed to get back there to finish up. Her stint at KTUU was an internship for credit, I think.

    And no, prerequisites for the journalism program/tech certificate from the community college she attended before University of Idaho, doesn’t count as a “degree”.
    “Palin attended North Idaho College for two semesters as a general studies major in the spring of 1983 and the fall of 1983.” NIC Press Room
    Here’s the two-year program leading to an Associates:

    I have a sibling who frequently says “when I got my degree” and “my degree studies”, when what it is, is a Petroleum tech program and certificate. But the way it’s said gives the unmistakable impression of an engineering degree.

    Go ahead, Sarah. Run for president. Enough is enough. Do it. I’m all about it. Let’s get it on.

    Perhaps with the promoted “degree”, Sowah should hop on the “family vacation” bus and tour all the major media offices… Give them some advise and possibly a tour of said bus…

    It is okay with this Alaskan if she started on the east coast and slowly made her way west. Hopefully she will visit every single media outlet and quit as she neared Washington state.

    Oft times, people find work in their chosen discipline after struggling the 4+ years to earn their degrees. They find it helpful to actually do the ‘work’ of their profession in order to further educate and acquaint themselves with the mechanics and innovations of their trade in the hopes of rising to the top in their chosen careers. Journalists and communication specialists likely add a few English and Public Speaking classes to firm up their grasp of the written and oral language. Perhaps then they might feel qualified to mentor and help those around them. Well not ol’ $carah. Letting whatever education she claims lie fallow for years and learning the fine art of twittering is all she needs to declare herself an expert in her field. I’m beginning to rethink all those ‘A’s I earned in art in grades 1-8. Look out MOMA, clear some wall space for me!!!!

    You betcha, Mrs. TODD Palin.. this so called “Degree in journalism” dosen’t seem to have helped you be able to evalute or analyse events, statements or actions. You don’t even know the difference between a lie and the truth let alone reality.

    I don’t know how anyone could possibly believe she has a degree in journalism or communications when she says something so grammatically incorrect as, “Much of the mainstream media is becoming irrelevant because there is NOT balance. There is NOT truth coming …..” She can’t speak or write properly and almost always has her advisors write her op-eds and FB posts. Her speeches are usually written by someone else but you can tell when she’s attempted to add to them or write them on her own because it she mangles the English language. A case in point would be her “resignation” speech which she wrote herself and actually had loaded onto a teleprompter. I can’t imagine who had to put it on the teleprompter for her but they had to be laughing if they attempted to understand what she was saying. Only in $arah’s world is quitting not quitting and to remain in the job you swore an oath to do is to take the quitter’s way out.

    Her teachers don’t remember her, she had nothing to do with the school’s newspaper or TV channel, so the whole notion that she has a journalism degree or even a communications degree is doubtful. In fact, when someone tried to verify that Sarah Heath had a degree of any type of U of I, they were told there was nobody listed by that name. When then given her married name of Palin, they were quickly put on hold and later told they can’t give out information regarding $arah Palin. Where $arah is, there are always secrets.

    “I want to help them,” she added. “I have a journalism degree. That is what I studied.” You could have fooled me.

    I have an English degree, and I understand how to put together a sentence (not to mention an entire paper of more than 140 characters) that people could read and understand. I can look up something simple like American history and regurgitate those facts. If I were running for office, I could look up something complicated like the debt ceiling and actually learn about it. My brain and training would allow me to sound credible on the subject.
    Sarah Palin? If the woman has a degree, she bought it online from one of those scam schools. People around her say she’s a reader, but people who read a lot as children are coherent and understand the English language because they have READ books with actual English syntax in them. If she spends her time reading magazines and comments about her online, then that’s the kind of syntax we get from her. When you listen to her in an interview, she sounds like she’s trying to throw in words to make herself sound intelligent. The only time something with her name on it makes any sense is when someone else writes her Facebook rants. Those are so coherent (often wrong, but good English usage) that they are obviously not from her scrambled brain.
    Oh, did I mention I have a degree in English? Sarah, I just want to help. I haver a degree in English. A real one.

    Is this someone with a degree – who knows etc all there is to know. If so, why call on the following (paid for by SarahPac so far this year).
    $86,000 on consultants
    $12,000 on research
    $32,000 on speechwriting

    And it really is difficult to figure out why this person gets a free pass. Also, again what about her contract with Fox that says she can’t appear or be interviewed by anyone else?

    My younger sister has a Broadcast Journalism degree from the same university that Sam Donaldson earned his from. She was required to intern for a local TV station, but interned for 2. After graduation, she worked for a newspaper for 6 years. She is now a pharma rep – using her communication skills to sell drugs.

    As a conservative woman, $arah embarrasses her. While they have many past experiences in common, they end results have been very different. $arah is a phony.

    So Sister Sarah has a degree in journalism. Why did she need ghostwriters for both of her books?

    SP is a very slow learner – there is no proof of any degree for her. She should quit making stuff up – the world is not as stupid as she is.
