The Palin camp seems awfully “reactive” lately. Maybe per chance they will read this post, so I’m going to talk to them for a sec.
Rather than be all “zipping my lip and throwing away the key,” why not just put out a statement about what you’re up to? It’s not like being thrown in a jury pool or attending a movie screening is the most top secret thing in the entire world, so why treat it that way? Why does everything have to be a big, bad secret?
Sometimes (sometimes) the media isn’t really trying to make things up, they’re just desperately trying to figure out what on earth you’re doing. You can’t exactly get upset when the media tries to find out what’s going on and comes up with the wrong answer. Try giving them the right answer to begin with.
But you don’t owe anything to the mainstream media, right? Okay, so just tell your supporters and let the media have the crumbs. Because right now your supporters are getting treated like the media.Tweet
