    Palin went on to take aim at the news coverage disseminated by the larger media industry. She cited her own credentials as grounds for assuming the role of critic in the world of journalism.

    “I want to help clean up the state that is so sorry today of journalism,” explains the conservative favorite. “And I have a communications degree. I studied journalism — who, what, where, when, and why — of reporting. I will speak to reporters who still understand that cornerstone of our democracy, that expectation that the public has for truth to be reported. And then we get to decide our own opinion based on the facts reported to us.”

    She adds, “So a journalist, a reporter who is so biased and will, no doubt, spin and gin up whatever it is that I have to say to create controversy, I swear to you, I will not waste my time with her. Or him.”

    This woman is the epitomy of a word salad. She made a “slip” alright, it was accepting the Vice Presidential nod.

    I hate to have to defend Palin but I think that was just an honest slip of the tongue.
