The Left Never Admits Fault: Fox40’s Palin Coverage
Here’s an excellent example of how the left never admits they’re wrong: Ed Driscoll’s PJM post on Fox40’s coverage of Sarah Palin’s recent speech at Cal State Stanislaus.
The article itself is fairly straightforward, as is the incident. Essentially, it boils down to some people being heard on an open mic making disparaging comments about Mrs. Palin and her speech, during the live coverage. Whether or not the voices belonged to Fox40 employees or others is not clear, but it hardly matters to the bigger picture.
However, the comments section (where you’ll see a few of my contributions) is truly indicative of the way the modern left operates. There are no comments from lefties admitting that the statements heard were out of line or that Sarah deserves an apology. Rather, the lefties that have posted, and I admit that they are few, have focused on shifting the blame away from those making the inappropriate comments and onto Mrs. Palin herself… as if she was somehow responsible for the poor behavior of those who don’t know better than to keep their mouths shut when there’s an open mic around.
Final point: Imagine if someone from a local affiliate had been heard making similar comments during the speech of a prominent Democrat, such as Mr. Obama, Mr. Biden, Mr. Reid, etc.
