Subtle Media Sarcasm WatchSo the press was entirely shut out of Sarah Palin's magical journey through the UN today. They are making up for it by being quietly bitchy. The headlines: "Palin meets her first world leaders in New York." (You know, from first world countries like Afghanistan!) And here is the most sarcastic Associated Press lead sentence ever:
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Less than a week after balking at the Alaska Legislature's investigation into her alleged abuse of power, Gov. Sarah Palin on Monday indicated she will cooperate with a separate probe run by people she can fire.
Ha, someone replaced your wire service with Wonkette! Best of all, of course, is CNN leading with the attached "live developing story" a few inches above their report on the 29 seconds their reporters were allowed to spend in the same room as Palin today. Hilarious.
