Sarah Palin goes on Fox to denounce interview of Duggar girls — conducted on Fox

Published

on

Appearing on Fox New with Sean Hannity, former half-term Alaskan governor Sarah Palin criticized “the media” for its coverage of the Duggar family scandal, singling out the interview with two Duggar daughters — while failing to mention that it was conducted by Megyn Kelly on Fox.

Although the Duggars agreed to give exclusive interviews with Kelly — spread out over two nights on her Kelly Files — Palin attacked her favorite target, “the mainstream media,” saying the girls were being “revictimized” but without mentioning they appeared on Fox.

What followed was Palin going off on one of her stream-of-consciousness rants regarding reality shows, the media, liberal bias, and Lena Dunham.

“I wrote a post after Bristol had pointed out that issues like, say, um, that liberal actress Lena Dunham having admitted and gleefully wrote about and offered up, rewarded with fame and fortune for, admitting to her sexual predatation [sic] with her own little sister, that she used her for sexual experiments and for her sexual outlet and, as I say, Lena Dunham has been praised, rewarded, and, um, and , you know, the media has this great big yawn when it comes to covering she or others that we have heard about on the liberal side of issues. And yet they try to crucify an entire family for a 14-year-old boy’s issue that he had, that was a bad bad bad issue, that he had twelve years ago, and it was an example that I used for this double standard, the hypocrisy, that, uh….so, you know, absolute blatant in this case.”

After Hannity shared a clip from Megyn Kelly’s interview with Jill and Jess Duggar, pointing out that they are part of a reality show family much like hers, Palin was off again.

“They do have a right to privacy. Yeah, well the difference with our family too, like the Duggars, is that people actually make their living by digging and poking and priding, I mean prodding, trying to find something on conservative families to try to destroy them and their reputations, but that’s another story. Uh, yeah, these girls are being re-victimized, for shame on the media for, under the guise of ‘Hey, gotta let them have their say anyway. Let’s interview them and put them there, back into the fire, and let them explain.’ They’re innocent! And these girls, yeah, so humiliated. The release of these confidential records is, it’s tragic, it’s illegal, it’s unethical. Why isn’t the dialogue going right now towards ‘Hey, let’s get that law enforcement official, he or her, who released this file. It was confidential.’  Who. who has been a victim, would ever want to speak out and still be able to trust law enforcement. That what they’re being told, with counselors and amongst themselves, that their files are going to be held confidential and then they’re exploited.  Why isn’t the press going after that police chief, she or he or whomever it was, and you know it was for political reasons, Sean.”

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."

Economists warn Trump policies will result in lost jobs and lower wages for American workers

Published

The 20-year-old San Diego bakery Con Pane Rustic Breads & Cafe went out of business this month after an audit by US authorities found immigrants working there illegally.

In April, a small Nebraska town lost a potato processing plant, and the local revenue it generated, in the wake of an immigration raid on its facilities. A restaurant in New York appears to have suffered similar fate in August.

Farmers say they are planting less, turning to automation, eliminating some crops, leaving them to rot in the field or contemplating selling out of the business altogether -- all because they cannot find enough immigrant labor.
