Palin Assails Media Classism

Jan 9, 2009 9:12am

In an interview with conservative filmmaker John Ziegler for his pending documentary "Media Malpractice… How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Smeared," Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin takes more shots at the media.

“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” Palin says in the film. “It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out, and I think that as we watch that, we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here. Also, that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”

On why she didn’t answer Katie Couric’s question about what she reads, Palin said that was because, "Katie, you’re not the center of everyone’s universe. … To me the question was more ‘Do you read? What do you guys do up there?’"
