Palin a target because of her faith?
Some people are concerned that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is being unfairly scrutinized by the media now that the presidential election is over.
Janice Shaw Crouse, director and senior fellow of Concerned Women for America’s Beverly LaHaye Institute, said Palin, who was Sen. John McCain’s running mate for the Republicans, is being targeted by the media because she is a conservative Christian woman.
“Some reporters are delving into media archives to find any instance of misspeaking or comments that can be misconstrued to show her supposed ‘ignorance,’ ‘inexperience,’ or ‘unsuitability for public office,’” Crouse said today in a statement released through Christian Newswire.
“It is amazing the lengths to which some people will go to destroy anyone who stands for moral principles, especially those who are pro-life or pro-marriage. Sarah Palin was thrust into the media spotlight and into political stardom overnight. She is a natural politician who exudes authenticity and a touch for the common person. She is a role model for young women and an example of a wife and mother who chose the right priorities and excelled at politics as well. Granted, she is not used to ‘gotcha journalism,’ and the rest of us are tired of ‘gotcha journalism.’”
