Washington Post Columnist Breaks His Palin Vow On Day One of Sarah-Palin-Free Month | The Blaze.
Back on January 21st of this year (11 days ago), Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank made a pledge to not mention former Alaska Governor and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin for an entire month. His hope was for a “Palin free February” and he also wished that others would join him. Milbank made no secret of his intentions or motives, he wanted Sarah Palin out of the spotlight forever:
“I hereby pledge that, beginning on Feb. 1, 2011, I will not mention Sarah Palin — in print, online or on television — for one month. Furthermore, I call on others in the news media to join me in this pledge of a Palin-free February. With enough support, I believe we may even be able to extend the moratorium beyond one month, but we are up against a powerful compulsion, and we must take this struggle day by day.”
He went on to say;
“if we treat her a little less like a major political figure and a little more like Ann Coulter — a calculating individual who says shocking things to attract media attention — it won’t matter”
And he breaks his vow….
