Palin blames media for showing her in bad light during vice presidential run
Washington, Feb 24: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin believes that media intentionally tried to destroy her image during her vice presidential run.
In an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for his new film out this week, Palin said that she believes the media made a decision that `we're going to seek and we're going to destroy this candidacy of Sarah Palin's because of what it is that she represents.'
"Obviously something big took place in the media. It is very frightening, I think, what the media was able to get away with, this go around," she added.
According to Palin, unbalanced media coverage poses a threat to democracy.
"This is for the sake of our democracy that there is fairness in this other branch of government, if you will, called the media. It is foreign to me the way some in the mainstream media are thinking," the Politico quoted her, as saying.
"There have been lies told, there have been reputations trashed, there have been children that have been harmed," she added.
Talking about her interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson, in which Palin seemed unsure of how to define the Bush doctrine, the Alaska governor said she that was disrespected in a way that another candidate would not have been.
"I'd have to say there would be much more respect shown to the subject, yes," she said. (ANI)
