Is the press out to get Sarah Palin? You betcha. In fact, we have the evidence.

Since Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin accepted Sen. John McCain’s invitation to join the GOP ticket as his running mate, negative news reports about her have flooded from the major media outlets.

We decided to take a peak at Associated Press headlines mentioning Palin since Sept. 3, the date of her GOP acceptance speech.

What we found was astounding. We found no comparable trend of negative stories relating to Barack Obama or his running mate Joe Biden. Here is a sampler of AP headlines:
