Sarah Pailn's Emails.

Apparently the fact government officials are releasing 24,000 of Sarah Palin's emails is a big deal. It is most read story on the CNN website. MSNBC, who love to take shots at Pailn, have it as their lead story. Whereas Fox News, who love Sarah Palin, have buried the story farther down their site instead going with the events in Syria as their lead story. The BBC News website is also leading with the events in Syria but the Palin email story is their most read. The CBC News website has the Palin email story as the fourth most viewed trailing stories on NATO, E-coli and a senator who hit a moose on the highway. . . . . . . . Only in Canada eh?

It is an interesting commentary on our society that emails of the former governor of the second smallest state in America are so important to so many people in the English speaking world. To their credit, the BBC did lead with events in Syria (The Syrian government has sent the army in to put down a big protest) on their front page. Fox News is giving this story about as much attention as it deserves by putting it under stories on Syria, Newt Gingrich, the UN Environmental Program and the trial of a mother who killed her daughter. Though, if it were Nancy Pellosi's emails that were to be released you have to wonder if the Fox News homepage would look different.

  1. I live in Toronto and I can personally care less about one man/woman's personal affairs. Well, whatever floats your boat. I'm personally more concerned with world issues.

  7. I find it soooo dificult to take someone like Sarah Palin seriously as she said she believes Human Beings came into existence only 4,000 years age. I think that she detracted that statement but only after she was advised to lol. Unbelievable that some ppl were voting for her to get into the highest office as well. She defo made that statement as I heard her saying it lol.
