We already knew that they were biased.
Now we see that they are biased and lazy.

Help Us Review the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records

By DEREK WILLIS

On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting on NYtimes.com starting on Friday afternoon.
We’re asking readers to help us identify interesting and newsworthy e-mails, people and events that we may want to highlight. Interested users can fill out a simple form to describe the nature of the e-mail, and provide a name and e-mail address so we’ll know who should get the credit. Join us here on Friday afternoon and into the weekend to participate.

--
Over 24,000 e-mail messages to and from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin during her tenure as Alaska's governor will be released Friday. That's a lot of e-mail for us to review so we're looking for some help from Fix readers to analyze, contextualize, and research those e-mails right alongside Post reporters over the days following the release.
We are limiting this to just 100 spots for people who will work collaboratively in small teams to surface the most important information from the e-mails. Participants can join from anywhere with a computer and an Internet connection.
If you need inspiration before getting started, take a look at what to expect from the e-mail drop. For micro-updates as tomorrow unfolds, check out our new Twitter feed.

The smoking gun in Sarah Palin’s emails
Posted on June 10th, 2011 by Sean Curnyn

It didn’t take Yours Truly too long to find it. On page 80 of this group of scanned emails, there is this revealing missive from a newly minted “supporter” of Sarah Palin:

From: XXXXXXXXX@aol.com
Sent: Friday, August 29th, 2008
To: Palin, Sarah H. (GOV)
Subject: Congratulations!

Governor Palin,
A few minutes ago I finished listening to your first speech as the US Vice Presidential candidate and I have to tell you it was electrifying! I believe you are going to bring a lot of energy and excitement to the Republican ticket. Congratulations! you make us proud.
You have already embarked in one of life’s most wonderful journeys; I am not talking about the Vice Presidency (although you have my unwavering support) I am talking about the journey of being the privilege parent of a special needs angel. Being blessed with one of our own, I can tell you that your life is forever changed, you see the world through a different lens and you appreciate each moment so much more.
I will proudly vote for the very first time in my life (because a US citizen in January of this year) in November giving you my support and awaiting to see you holding your baby in celebration of a victory.
Our regards to your lovely family,
The Castanedas
Texas



So there it is. It tells you everything you need to know about why Sarah Palin fiendishly created her alleged son Trig in the laboratory, knowing that his very existence would tug the heartstrings of people like the Castanedas in Texas, and get them to vote for her even though we all know that voting Republican is against the interests of Hispanic immigrants. Palin’s plan was set in motion decades ago, and there is nothing she will stop at to achieve the absolute power she seeks in order to turn Amerikkka into JesusLand and force the underclass to work 20-hour days hydrofracking the entire country so she and her animal-hating Alaskan cronies can ride their snowmobiles for five cents per gallon of gas.

Looks like the original poster couldn't prove his allegations and thus loses argument cheers

http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_theticket/20110610/ts_yblog_theticket/sarah-palin-emails-mostly-confirm-what-was-already-known-about-the-ex-governor

Here are a few of the highlights spotted by news organizations scouring the Palin emails so far:
• Palin was as stunned as anyone when McCain picked her to be his running mate. "Can you believe it!" Palin emailed her top aides after the news was announced. (Los Angeles Times)
• Palin paid close attention to her local coverage, bristling at a report in the Anchorage Daily News that she had snubbed the annual Miss Alaska contest. She promptly wrote a letter to the editor defending her absence—though she wrote it in the third person and asked a staffer to send. (Los Angeles Times)
• But Palin didn't always hate the press. In 2007, she encouraged her staff to talk to the media. (New York Times)
• Months before McCain tapped Palin as his running mate, the Alaska governor was plotting ways to get on his radar. "Is it possible to get hooked up (maybe by Nick Ayers?) with someone from the McCain campaign?" she wrote in January 2008. (Washington Post)
• Palin admired an energy speech Barack Obama gave in August 2008, just weeks before she joined the GOP ticket. "Great speech," she emailed aides. (Los Angeles Times)
• In February 2007, an adviser told Palin she should meet with an Alaska native, Pete Rouse, who was then Obama's Senate chief of staff. "I'm game to meet him," Palin replied. (Wall Street Journal)
• Palin wasn't on exactly the best terms with Alaska's congressional delegation. (Los Angeles Times)
• There were rumors about whether Palin was the mother of her son, Trig, from the start. In April 2008—just days before she gave birth to Trig—Palin emailed her husband and senior staff to alert them that a political rival was spreading rumors that it was her daughter, Bristol, who was actually pregnant. "I wish I could shame people into ceasing such gossip about a teen, but can't figure out how to do that," Palin said. (Washington Post)
• The Palins once hung out with an Elvis impersonator. (Atlantic Wire)
•In September 2008, a Palin aide suggested the governor should appear opposite Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live—which Palin later did. (Politico)
• It was reported long ago that Palin installed a tanning bed in the governor's mansion, but here'e the email proof. (Atlantic Wire)
• Palin was really into the Iditarod. (Wall Street Journal)
• The governor and her aides once emailed around a poem entitled, "An Indian with One Testicle." (The Atlantic)
• Newt Gingrich once advised the governor on her PR. (Politico)


Devastating stuff, filled with smoking guns.
Maybe now you can move on to the really important stuff, Artie - like Trig’s birth certificate.

The Palinistas did an excellent of job on the redactions during the 2 years they fought like hell to avoid releasing them. One of the companies hired to go through them said that had never seen anything like it, and that the level of care was astounding.
So it looks to me like they had a lot to hide.

Really?
What, precisely, was redacted?
Be very specific - I can take it.

Among the 14,482 emails that were sent or received by then-Gov. Sarah Palin (R), Alaska officials released just over 11,000 without altering them. But they also redacted some information from more than 2,300.

And they held back 953 entirely.

Almost a month of Palin's emails missing from releases
Quote :
Nearly a month of former Gov. Sarah Palin's emails are missing from the documents released to media organizations last week, a gap that raises questions about what other emails might also be missing from what's being nationally reported as her record as Alaska governor.

The records include no emails between Dec. 8, 2006 and Dec. 29, 2006. The state's log of emails that it withheld from public release lists none from that time period.

That means, if the record is to be trusted, Palin did not send or receive a single email about state business during a time when she was busy taking the first major actions of her new administration. That means zero emails during a period during which, among other things, Palin put out her proposed state budget, appointed an attorney general, killed the contract for a road out of Juneau and vetoed a bill that sought to block state public employee benefits to same-sex couples.

The state had no explanation Monday.

"I don't have any information on the missing documents," said Linda Perez, administrative director for Gov. Sean Parnell. "I forwarded all that off to (state technology services) and asked them if they would search their search criteria and see if they can explain or come up with any reason for this."

One likely factor is Palin's decision to use private email accounts for state business rather than her official state account

It's a practice she kept up for most of her term. So while the Palin emails are being reported as an account of her time as governor, it's far from a complete record.

A motorcyclist is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her into the cage to slaughter her right before the eyes of her screaming parents. The motorcyclist jumps off his bike, runs to the cage, and hits the lion on the head with a tire iron. The lion releases the girl and retreats to the back of his cage, and the motorcyclist returns the girl safely to her grateful parents.
A New York Times reporter has witnessed the whole scene, and tells the motorcyclist, “That was the bravest thing I’ve ever seen a man do.”
“It was nothing, really”, said the motorcyclist. “The girl was in danger, and it was the right thing to do.”
“Well, I’m a journalist from the New York Times, and I’ll make sure that this act doesn’t go unnoticed. If you’ll allow me to interview you, this story will be on the front page of tomorrow’s edition. So, tell me – what type of motorcycle do you ride, what are your hobbies, and what is your political affiliation?”
The motorcyclist says, “ I ride a Harley-Davidson, I’m a member of the Patriot Guard Riders; we attend the funerals of US armed forces members, firefighters, and police, and I am a Republican.”
The following morning, the motorcyclist buys a copy of the New York Times and sees the headline:

REPUBLICAN BIKE GANG MEMBER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT WITH TIRE IRON, STEALS HIS LUNCH

No, and I'm not outraged now, either. As a matter of fact, I'm amused at the fact that those snooping got their asses handed to them.
