Palin bans reporters from meetings with leaders

NEW YORK - Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, on Tuesday banned reporters from her first meetings with world leaders, allowing access only to photographers and a television crew.
Looks like Palin is afraid of getting caught saying something dumb in her first meeting with foreign leaders.

She's in no position to ban anything.

My God, if McCain gets elected I hope he lives to 90.

is this what living in Russia is like?

watching Hannity interview her a few nights ago was like watching the North Korean press in action and pressing the (now dead?) Kim Jong Il for answers on real toughie questions.

Has anyone considered that it's maybe things like *this* that explain why the media seems to have it in for her, both liberal and lately some conservative media as well?

As time goes on, I cannot fathom how Republicans can continue to rationalize McCain choosing her. It baffles.

More on this..... CNN apparently told McCain-Palin that if they weren't allowed to have an actual reporter there, they wouldn't broadcast it at all:

Quote:
McCain camp tries to to keep reporters out of Palin meetings
Posted: 01:45 PM ET

From CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby


The media was allowed to observe Palin and Karzai for less than 30 seconds.
(CNN) — McCain-Palin campaign officials shifted course Tuesday after being informed by television news organizations that they would not broadcast footage of Sarah Palin’s meeting with Afghan leader Hamid Karzai Tuesday in New York — the Republican VP nominee’s first with a foreign leader — if a reporter was not allowed in to observe the pair.

CNN, which was the pool network for the event, informed the campaign of its decision. The network was then told a CNN producer would be allowed in the room to act as a media representative, just minutes before the photo op was scheduled to take place. However, print reporters and wire services were not allowed to observe the meeting, as they have been able to do at similar McCain events in the past.

The press only caught a brief glimpse of the vice presidential nominee. Palin was seated in a large chair a few feet from Karzai, with a table in between them. Seated slightly behind Palin were campaign foreign policy advisers Steve Biegun and Randy Scheunemann, who are accompanying the governor in her motorcade today.

As the pool entered, the Afghan president appeared to be telling Palin about his young son, who was born in January 2007.

Palin, her legs crossed and at one point patting her heart, was leaning in eagerly and smiling. Karzai, wearing his traditional clothes but without his trademark karakul hat, was also grinning while discussing the child. His remarks were mostly unintelligible as the noise from the clicking cameras drowned them out.

“What is his name?,” Palin asked.

“Mirwais,” Karzai responded. “Mirwais, which means, ‘The Light of the House.’”

“Oh nice,” Palin responded.

“He is the only one we have,” remarked Karzai.

After 29 seconds observing the meeting, CNN and other photographers covering the meeting were escorted out of the room.

Later, McCain-Palin press representatives chalked up the restrictions to a “mix-up, a miscommunication among staff.” The full pool — a print and wires reporter, along with a television producer — was then allowed in to observe Palin’s meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe for 15-20 seconds.


It infuriates me that people think she's being unfairly treated and then shit like this goes on.

Can't anyone see it's just a photo op? Doesn't anyone see this as unusual/suspicious that media (that were allowed in) are only able to basically come in, take their photo, and leave? And people are ok with this woman being the VP? I JUST DON'T GET IT!!!, and I've spoken to numerous female friends lately, and we all concur.

Can't imagine that she could ever top this:
Quote:
CBS Evening News, Sept 22nd

COURIC: On the trail, Biden is unmistakably himself, from occasionally cursing to getting emotional, as he did in Canton, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We were with him last Thursday during one of the rockiest weeks in history for the U.S. economy, something that wasn't lost on the six-term Senator.

BIDEN: Part of what a leader does is to instill confidence, is demonstrate that he or she knows what they're talking about and to communicates to people. If you listen to me and follow what I'm suggesting, we can fix this. When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk about the, you know, princes of greed. He said, “look, here's what happened.”

If that quote actually has some weight, some meaning, some sort of monumental, international, political, importance to you---man, you must be floored when you see shit like this:

you think that him mistaking the teevee for the radio is comparable to an actual gaff like misunderstanding the fundamentals of Fannie Mae or having never heard of the Bush Doctrine?

seems like Biden's mistake is along the lines of McCain flubbing Czheckoslovakia.

While I freely admit that what Biden said was dumb, at least we get to see him in these situations. I doubt, given current media restrictions, that we'd see Sarah Palin in this light because the Republicans are clearly trying to shield her from making similar embarassing statements.

Hiding her won't do any good. Eventually, she'll gaffe like the rest of them. You might as well get her battle-ready as soon as possible, rather than protecting her from herself.
