Sarah Palin has a New Year's resolution — to be "more aggressive" in calling out the media for "practicing lapdog laziness."

In a Facebook post on Saturday, the former Alaska governor and one-time vice-presidential nominee railed against the media for standing behind President Barack Obama, even after the revelations about the National Security Agency's spying programs.

"Hey reporters, we know that once Barack Obama got elected you bailed on keeping government accountable; you've been abject failures there," Palin wrote. "Case in point: Nixon's presidency was over once reporters busted him for allowing his people to spy on political opponents. Today, the Obama presidency's hallmark is spying (in addition to violating economic and Constitutional liberties), for which you celebrate Barack Obama. Transparently hypocritical, much?"

Palin's relationship with what she calls the "lamestream" media has been difficult through the years, including in November when MSNBC host Martin Bashir called her the nation's "resident dunce" and a "world-class idiot" for comparing America's national debt to slavery, words he apologized for saying.

On Facebook Saturday, Palin's post also praised Sen. Rand Paul for kicking off the new political year "suing the president for violating our rights," referring to the Kentucky Republican's announcement this past Friday that he plans to file a class-action lawsuit against the Obama administration over the NSA's policies.

Palin said she wrote her post after returning from her family's remote cabin near Mt. McKinley, where she described spending "a glorious few days" with cell phones or television, saying she recommends getting back to "some simplicity."

She also said she resolves to "eat more meat," to "help others make the federal government as irrelevant in our lives as possible," and to "live out Coach John Wooden's "Pyramid of Success", encouraging everyone to do our individual part to live with industriousness, self-discipline and selflessness so we, collectively as a nation, can restore America to her exceptionalism."
