Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has complained in the past about liberal bias in the mainstream media, calling it the “lamestream media.” But much of that media is coming to her defense amid negative portrayals of her in a new book and documentary film, Politico reports
The book, “The Rogue” by Joe McGinniss, and the British documentary “Sarah Palin: You Betcha!” have been panned by reviewers, and newspapers have declined to run Doonesbury comic strips with excerpts of the book.
The book represents “caustic, unsubstantiated gossip” with accusations that are “indefensibly reckless,” Janet Maslin wrote in a New York Times review. “‘The Rogue’ is too busy being nasty to be lucid.”
As for the movie, it’s “a sarcastically toned, strategically timed character assassination” that “lacks sufficient humor and insight to make it a must-see for anyone outside the Brit muckraker’s fan base,” Variety wrote.
