Palin predicts media
will declare Obama winner

Washington Post, by Erik Wemple

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/4/2012 5:49:37 AM

In a chat with Neil Cavuto of Fox Business Network, Sarah Palin issues a prediction right after last night’s debate. “Ninety percent of the liberal media — the lamestream media — they’re going to say, of course, that Barack Obama won the debate.” Though Palin is generally crafty enough to make highly squishy statements about stuff, this one is slightly fact-checkable. Running down just a few of the institutions commonly associated with media mainstreamness, we discover that perhaps Palin needs to recalibrate just a touch:

Comments:
I assume she didn't watch it, or if she watched it, didn't understand it.

To be honest I thought the media would also declare 0bama the winner because that's what they've been doing his whole term, regardless of any evidence to the contrary. I'm still shocked and cautious at the left medias reaction to 0bama's predictable performance last night.

I'm sure our Sarah undestood the debate quite well, no matter what OP thinks.

As my wife said, "If Obummer had won, the whole first hour of little Georgie on GMA would have been about it."

They gave Mitt about 4 minutes.
And Chrissy Mathews meltdown is precious. LOL

I'm a Sarah Palin fan but I think she got this one wrong. Comments from, of all people, Maddow, Matthews, Carville, and Maher bear that out.

Go away. Please. The term "lamestream media" if for talk show hosts, not for a former governor and VP candidate. Grow up. Or get a talk show.

"See, see!" cried the Wimple. "We're not biased toward obama".

Maybe this morning after their boy was found on the battlefield with his arms, legs and head cut off.

But... you just wait a day or two. All the king's horses and all the king's men WILL put Humpty Dumpty together again.

That was my assumption as well. However, it was hard to see how they could declare obama the winner and get away with it this time. Romney was great! Palin is very conservative and she's still skeptical about President Romney and might have a good reason for that. We shall see, but Romney any given day over obit.

Before you post, note that Palin talked to Cavuto. His show comes on at 4 pm.
She made the commend hours before the debate.

And yes, the LSM is giving the win to Romney, but read the usual snarky paragraphs.

Now the hope Obummer will come back and do better.

She can be given some slack for this opinion, as we all expected lies and spin in Obama's favor. That it didn't happen is a clear indication of just how soundly Romney cleaned his clock!

She should be pointing out that the MEDIA is responsible for Obama's poor performance. Since they chose to coddle him for the past 4 yrs, Obama has no experience answering questions or deflecting challenges.
Gotta love it---Obama done in by the adoring sycophants!

Give the media a day or two for the shock to wear off and for them to get their marching orders from the 0bama camp. I figure by the weekend, they will have figured out a way of making 0bama seem like the winner.

Listening to talk radio (what's left of it, anyway)up here in MA, I'm amazed at how many people are now calling in saying "Sarah was right". And then enumerating the MANY times Gov. Palin was correct, if shocking, in what she said.
The entire country thought that no matter what happened last night, it would be spun to a great obama victory. Because that is ALL that we have had since the great (sarcasm)speech of 2004.
I think one of two things will happen. Something really nasty will emerge from Chicago, and/or in the days to come, the chris matthews of this world will re-write history.
I'm pretty sure, poster, that Gov. Palin did understand what was said last night and what happened. She is a pretty smart woman.

The kindest thing the Boston Globe could say about Obama this morning was that he was "cautious." One of their columnists said it was a knockout for Romney; another said that "an ineffective Obama falls flat."

Palin appears to be trying to minimize anything Romney does. That kind of petty spitefulness is unbecoming, to say the least.

Proving once again that Sarah Palin makes liberal's heads explode, not matter how long she's been NOT RUNNING FOR ANYTHING. It's a wondrous thing, and I hope if somehow Romney beats the mainstream media and becomes president, he'll appoint her to something very high profile so the MSM will stay distracted. And crazy.

Believe it or not, McClatchy newpapers did not declare Romney the winner at least for the first paragraphs. I didn't read beyond that. Loved the fact that Lehrer let the candidates really talk. Liberals unhappy that he didn't ask loaded questions? Liberal caller on C-Span: But they didn't talk about social issues such as (you fill in the dots). No, you dummy, it was on the economy. All logic lost on left.

Considering all the damage Palin has done to the Republican party, I wish she'd please shut up and go off to cheer Bristol on "Dancing with the Stars" or Todd on whatever reality show he is on these days. Every time she opens her mouth on TV, any independents who are watching are reminded she and Romney are from the same party, and he loses votes. I disagree with the poster who said s/he wishes Romney would appoint her to some position when he wins. So far Romney has handled this "maverick" perfectly, avoiding her like the plague.

Erik, Erik! Have you forgotten what rhetoric is? What Sarah meant was that the left will reflexively declare the president the winner even though she doesn't. Judging from what I have seen so far she is correct. It's early times so that may change as the media absorbs the fallout.

Give the MSM time people!
Romney slam dunked Obama so badly that MSM can't help but say Romney was the winner. However, in a few days someone in the media will come up with a twisted logic that Obama didn't do that bad. A few days later it will be expanded. A few push polls later and they will even be declaring Obama the winner of this debate. Just give them some time.

Here, I'll give it a start.

"You know, Romney won but he used such aggressive tactics that he turned off many of the voters. Our polls have shown that a majority of the people don't like Romney's aggressive approach. Obama's inability to debate well is a net plus for him because people like his compassion. Romney may have initially been pronounced the winner but you know Obama is the one who gained the most from that debate because people have decided that this is the kind of leader they want. What a disaster that debate has turned out to be for Romney."

Palin did a seven-minute chat with Cavuto and it was very substantive. The little puff about the lamestream media took 5 seconds and is still arguably true. This whole WaPo idiot article missed that as well as a few posters here. So her comment was a bit overstated. So what. I'll translate for the not-so-brite. The media is still in the tank for Zero. Does anyone argue with that?

Our rejoicing should not cause us to let down our guard, for all that the debate was like an exploding cigar for the media. They haven't had time to get their stories straight. They are not going to take this lying down. They will be back - like the monsters in horror movies that arise again and attack after they are thought to have been killed.

The story -narrative, if one prefers- has yet to be constructed to explain what happened last night. Leftists are still wiping the remains of the cigar off their faces, Their ears are still ringing. They remain dazed, disoriented, not quite sure what happened to them. This won't last long. They will be back, and with a vengeance.

But how? What line of attack to take now? It certainly seems that their Icarus has fallen to earth, blasted out of the sky by a combination of his own hubris and Mitt Romney's obviously superior intellect.

It will be interesting to see how they try to wriggle out of this predicament. The stock responses of racism and class warfare will be difficult to use here. Blaming the moderator can only carry the load so far. Perhaps it was an aberration, a momentary lapse due to fatigue from overwork?

The ante has been logarithmically raised for the next debate. One can be confident Leftist heads are huddled, emails and phone lines are buzzing, emergency meetings are being scheduled to develop and implement plan B.

Why can't she bring herself to praise Romney? She has yet to fully endorse him and for some apparently selfish reason, is reserving her option to snipe at him.

No, President Romney will have no need of any service the former demi-gov might offer.

I wish everyone on OUR side, including Sarah Palin would STOP talking about obama and concentrate on what Mitt Romney is doing. I agree with #4, #8, and #25. IMO, who CARES what the demonrats OR the "media" is going to do to exact revenge against Mitt Romney? He can take care of himself. Enough with the wringing of hands and whining about "unfairness" of the "media". Let them bring it on!

Face it, Obama could have walked to the podium, sang "Basketball Jones," lit a cigarette and left, and certain elements would have declared him the winner. The only complaint you're going to hear will be Mitt's lack of "specifics," from the same clowns who were satisfied with specifics like Hope and Change and Yes We Can in 2008.

It was a bigger blowout than Reagan in 1980.

I watched Barack's traveling press secretary, a young woman who appeared to be dressed for halloween, and she said that the U.S. doesn't need an attack dog as president.
I have no idea what the basis of her comment was.
And I also saw the rev.al last night as he tried to come up with any positive for obama, and the rev said that because romney was so specific, joe biden would use that against ryan. (the rev apparently was talking about income tax policy.)
Old Joe will be completely confused by the numbers if he tries to attack ryan on income tax policy.)

By the end of the week the dishonest "fact checks" will have turned the outcome of the debate into an Obama "win". Palin is correct.

Wemple is just pouting because she called him on it before it could really get going.

OP, Palin knows the media's MO. Personal feelings aside, she's nailed this one.

Sarah was on Hannity last night and was very complimentary of Mitt and the debate.

#26 I agree. We should stop listening to the other side. Instead we should be shouting from the rooftops that our guy is the clear winner and the leader this country needs. We need to be louder and drown out the rats on the other side.

Go back to sleep 8, the coffee won’t help you. Sarah said what we all know to be true. If it had not been such a disaster for 0, the media would have certainly done exactly what she said they would do. However, since the clock cleaning was so completely thorough, it will take the media a few days to convince Americans they didn’t really see what they saw.

It's not clear to me that the OP really "understands it".

I figured everyone would call it for Obama too. Conditioning? It was a safe assumption - especially if asked to comment right after the debate.

I was shocked to find out LATER that they were actually declaring this one an Obama victory.

Jeesh. Some people just LOOOVVEE attacking way Palin too much.....It's, uh, kinda weird.

The past is always a predictor of the future. Why wouldn't she predict that the LSM would declare 0b@$tard the winner? The problem was, 0bit was soooooooooo very bad, the LSM couldn't declare him the winner without totally giving away the farm.

The LSM is up on their hind legs, declaring there is no bias. If they had declared 0bit the winner, every knee-pad JournoLister would have had to concede bias.

OP...
Did it ever occur to you that Sarah was the smartest one on this?
By her prediction that the media would, unfairly and with great bias, declare Obama to be the winner of the debate, she virtually assured that they would not--that they would call it right.
I am convinced that the media's pride would not let them follow Sarah's prediction, and they would call the debate right if just to spite Sarah.

Sarah did an interview with Hannity after the debate and was very exuberant with her praise of Romney's performance. I think within the next couple of days, she will be proven correct (yet again) in her prediction of the dem spin machines attempt to turn a Romney win into 0bama's. Note, she didn't say they would succeed, but that they would try.

#4 & #13 you are the snarky ones. You can always tell a Palin article by the number of posts like the 60,000 who lined up to see her during the 2008 election. Some are correct - just wait until the "lamestream" begins throwing roses in a few days to their annointed one. Later in the evening Palin gave a very good report on Romney - she loves our Republic & still sounds like a typical American patriot.

While I do not fully agree with Sarah Palin that the media will declare Obama winner, I understand why she says it.

You must understand that at this point, Sarah is NOT seeking the presidency but is trying to be a good wingman in the service of the republicans. What she is doing is to highlight the biasness of the media ahead of time before it actually occurs.

The fact that people like Matthews and Maher sound doleful, does not mean that they will not eventually somehow try to spin this as an Obama winner after the second debate if Obama does better. I think they have to sound a little negative at this point because Obama came across really badly compared to Romney last night and if they were to try to spin it this early after the debate, people would still remember and would correctly view them as sycophants. The leftist media is going to wait until this debate goes into the memory hole and then the spin will begin.

Al Gore has made the first stab at explaining what happened last night. It seems that Obama was a victim of altitude sickness. This supports the widely held theory that Gore is insane, perhaps because he lost the presidency to GWB of all people.

Altitude sickness. Not enough oxygen to the brain. Sure. That explains everything.

I am waiting to see who will be the first to play the race card on last night's Obama debacle. It's bound to come. Rich white bully beats up struggling black intellectual and social activist? Too crude. What, then?

I saw Palin on Hannity late last night and she was extremely happy with Romney and praised him. She was simply saying she thought the msm would do what they have always done - protect their boy - and some have tried. It is just that this train wreck was too big and too live on TV even for them to try to cover up.

I also heard her tell Hannity that she thinks Chicago will strike back. Of that, I'm sure. I will not be surprised if some kind of invented emergency arises that takes all this off the front page or maybe takes the next debate off the front page.

Good golly, the haters like to find a cloud in every silver lining, don't they. Sarah is absolutely right about the media. They declared Sloppy Joe Biden the winner after she wiped the floor with him. The difference here is that expectations were never that high for Joe. But this debate exposed O for the lightweight he is. Even his media supporters couldn't deny it.

Well, I think Wemple made a correct statement--she may need to re-calibrate a little--but just a little! Lehrer is already catching flak from the lames for the way he moderated. And they rea already making excuses for 0--he pulled his punches, Romney played fast and loose with the facts, blah, blah, blah. Sarah was right in kind, just not in degree--and even that might change in a couple of days, as others have suggested.BTW, I do agree with a prior poster--Palin should ditch phrases like "lamestream media", it isn't becoming to someone in her position...

We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous. You meet a lot of

The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle. The family was preparing to go to church and the children´s father had just run back inside the house to get a baby bottle when a man hopped

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When Oprah Winfrey served on a Chicago jury in 2004, she couldn’t go to the bathroom attached to the jury room unless her fellow jurors sang to drown out the noise. One of the songs they sang was Kumbaya. When Alexis Sanchez used the bathroom in her college dorm, she brought her iPod with her. “I would blast it,” she says. “I would play ´D. A. N. C. E.´ by Justice, and some Maroon 5 song. That was my poop playlist. It had to be a ritual or else I would focus too much on if there were other girls

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
