(RCP) On Friday night Former Governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) delivered a fiery speech that ripped the media for not vetting then-Senator Barack Obama. Palin spoke to the Right Online conference in Las Vegas.
Palin drove her point home about the media not vetting Obama when she went on a riff of "if the media had done their job ..."
"You do what the old media won't do and can't do and that's tell the truth," Palin said. However, Palin had slight praise for member of the media who don't want to a member of "Makecrapupistan."
Palin praised Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report for being a pioneer who first reported stories that the media ignored, namely the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
"I have learned in the last four years or so, it doesn't do any good to personally complain about the untruths told by the old media. I might as well save my breath. Shoot, by now I should have been divorced how many times? Under FBI investigation. Living in the Hamptons. It still is a great mystery who really is Trig Paxon Van Palin's real mother," Palin told the audience.
Palin ended the speech with her signature line: "Don't retreat. Reload with that inspiration."
Thanks to the Right Scoop for capturing the full speech.
