How does an MSMer imply there's something to the allegations of adultery made against Nikki Haley, a Tea Party fave running for the GOP nomination for governor of South Carolina? Express shock that family-values champion Sarah Palin would come to Haley's defense.
That was precisely Bianna Golodryga's gambit this morning. Here's how the co-host of the Good Morning America weekend edition teased an upcoming segment on the subject:
BIANNA GOLODRYGA: If this political year has taught us anything, it's to expect the unexpected. Take the South Carolina governor's race for example. Allegations of extramarital affairs are flying against the leading GOP candidate there. And Sarah Palin of all people has rushed to her defense.
"Of all people"? So Golodryga is ostensibly surprised by Palin's support of Haley. Why? Haley has categorically denied the allegations. By professing shock that family-values Palin would come to Haley's defense, it certainly sounds as if Bianna is implying there's substance to the accusations. If Golodryga's got proof, other than the allegations of men with possible political axes to grind, she should produce it. Otherwise, Golodryga should lay off the invidious insinuations.
