Letter Writer Nails Washington Post for Anti-Palin Bias, Awaits Paper’s ‘Let's Get Obama' Project

A gem of a letter appeared in the “Free for All” page of letters in Saturday’s Washington Post.

“Kindly let us know exactly where on your Web site we should go to participate in your ‘Let’s Get Obama’ project so we can interact with the objective mainstream media,” Michael Crawford, of Great Falls, Virginia, concluded.

To understand that kicker, read the letter in full as published in the June 18 newspaper:

In an unprecedented effort, The Post asked readers to help go through a massive dump of e-mail from Sarah Palin’s tenure as Alaska governor, hoping that someone will find something that can be used against her.

Without any sense of irony, the June 12 news article “Palin ambitious, protective in e-mails” quoted a “Democratic stategist” solemnly opining that Palin would “avoid interacting with objective, mainstream [media] outlets.”

To the contrary, I believe that Palin and millions of other people would be eager to participate in an objective and balanced effort to comb through President Obama’s e-mails for potentially embarrassing and politically damaging items.

Kindly let us know exactly where on your Web site we should go to participate in your “Let’s Get Obama” project so we can interact with the objective mainstream media.
