<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The mainstream media is consistently manipulated by Sarah Palin. The same Sarah Palin they criticize for being dimwitted is beating the news media at their own game. The release of more than 24,000 pages of emails by the Alaska governor's office is just the latest incident Palin has orchestrated to once again keep he name in the news without committing to run in 2012.

The 24,000 plus pages of emails released to the press Friday were in printed form as reported by Yahoo! News. The release of the emails was an embarrassing feeding frenzy as media outlets loaded up more than six large boxes containing the emails. The press had requested release of the emails when Palin accepted the nomination to run as the vice presidential nominee on John McCain's ticket for his 2008 failed presidential run.

Palin is taking advantage of the media's obsession with her private emails and using the situation to promote herself as the CEO of Alaska during her reign as governor. Palin is also using the media's obsession to promote her new documentary, "The Undefeated."

The last several months the media is now addicted to Palin and they cannot resist the temptation to continue their 24 hour coverage of her every move. It is a curious obsession that is gaining Palin political clout she would never have experienced. The media covers Palin now for the simple reason that she drives ratings and creates buzz by the mere mention of her name.

The Palin bus tour is just another example of the media working feverishly to keep up with the former governor. They complain endlessly about covering Palin but they are the first in tow when Palin runs from town to town.

Meanwhile, it is impossible to convince the media to cover the United States $14 trillion budget or that the United States is footing the bill for 75 percent of all military operations in Libya. The fourth estate has become TMZ and the result is just another example of the decline of the United States. </div></div>

No, she did NOT orchestrate this. It is a function of Alaska open records policies, and the equivalent of an FOI request to Alaska to formally request them, by David Corn of the Nation Magazine, years ago.

That it HAPPENS to feed into Ms. Palin's cult of personality narcissistic self-promotion is an accident that Ms. Palin had nothing to do with.

Don't you agree?

I think the fact that the emails were released in paper form says it all. [Not to mention the 2,000 that were not released.]

Basically, it took them 3 years to go through 24,000 emails to weed out the really damaging one's.

First they said it would cost 15M, actually the price came in at under $800....bit of a difference.

Evidenced by?

Ohhh ... I forgot, you're the guy who makes up whatever they need.

Now ... when might we expect to see then Senator Obama's e-mails, or his Harvard transcripts, or from Columbia, or from Occidental, or his medical records?

I read the entire article. It's one man's incorrect opinion.

Explain in what manner this was 'orchestrated' by Ms. Palin to outsmart the media. It wasn't.

In fact, she had placed her own e-mails apparently outside the reach of the public records law, to hide what she was doing, using personal hotmail or g-mail accounts to transact state business.

It took some ingenuity to find a backdoor way to get at those, and that was exactly the opposite result of what Ms. Palin intended by trying to hide her state-related e-mails in her private accounts.
