It’s been over two weeks since McCain picked unknown Gov. Palin as his running soulmate for the presidency. The Republican Party deemed ABC News as the only media outlet worthy enough to ask her questions.

Effectively, a political party has said “screw you” to the American people, and media people — afraid of reprisals down the road — wimped out and went along with the Republican gatekeepers.

Seeing that “exclusive” tag on the ABC News interviews with Palin makes my blood boil. Get me out of this bizarre alternative American universe!

I cannot recall a more blatant incidence of abridging the freedom of the press. If anyone should be made available to the press 24/7, it’s Gov. Palin. We have to make up for lost time — she was absolutely unknown to us two weeks ago.

With her bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Gov. Palin probably is aware that our American Fourth Estate has been taking on Soviet characteristics lately. Heck, you can see the Russian press corp from Alaska!
