Kurtz Unclear on the Tao of Trig
The Washington Post’s "media critic" Howard Kurtz seems to have forgotten who is allowed to bring Trig into American political discourse. From Monday’s chatz:
Wheaton, Md.: Howard, why is no one calling for Sarah Palin to apologize for her comments on her Facebook page — to paraphrase "Obama’s death panel would decide Trig’s fate." This is about as outrageous as it gets. Is she getting this from Rush or Beck?
When is the press going to jump on this? She needs to take her own advice and "Stop making things up".
Howard Kurtz: Maureen Dowd mentioned it, and it came up on a Sunday show or two. But I guess being an ex-governor means not having to say you’re sorry. And I was surprised she brought Trig into it, given her scolding of the press for its coverage of her family.
Sarah’s first rule of Trig: Don’t talk about Trig, unless you’re me.
