CNN And MSNBC's Palin Email Bombshell Dreams Fall Apart-Media Beclowns Itself

Both MSNBC and CNN's political teams must have been salivating in anticipation of the release of the mass of emails from Palin's time as Alaska's Governor. Surely there would be any number of "smoking guns" and the liberal media could finally, finally, put an end to the person they hate with a vengeance.

But, once again Palin wins and they lose. This was supposed to be the end times for Palin what with two books including a "tell all" from a former aid coming out attacking her, the emails, and the media blowing up  the ridiculous Paul Revere, saga but the media winds up looking like buffoons.

At MSNBC's "Hardball" Chris Mathews had a team member, Mike Isikoff, in Alaska wading through the 26000 or so emails (poor man) and, surely to Matthews disappointment had, nothing unduly negative to say. In fact he ended up by praising her early work as Governor. "She was known as a reformer and worked with the democrats against the oil companies." This is not what Matthews expected to hear no doubt.

And here is CNN's witch hunt exploding

The emails: 'Your Obama-compliant mainstream media at work'

"A hard-working governor, working hard for the state of Alaska"
William Jacobson is maintaining a linked list of headlines showing how the media is reporting as they sift through Gov. Palin's emails.
Jimmie Bise at The Sundries Shack catches an anchor in the CNN studio egging on reporter Drew Griffin in Juneau to reveal something negative about Sarah Palin:

But to the anchor's disappointment, Griffin reports that as he sifts through the emails what he was seeing is a "hard working governor, working hard for the state of Alaska." When the anchor asks if Griffen has uncovered any juicy tidbits to support the charge that Gov. Palin is thin skinned, the reporters replied that many times the governor defected criticism meant for her staff onto herself. Emails like those, Griffin says, show Sarah Palin to be quite a different person from the negative stereotype the left and many in the media have created of her.

Even the serial Palin detractors at Politico were forced to report, to their chagrin, that the media had uncovered "no big bombshells."
