Some say that Governor Palin has a contentious relationship with the press. She has had to issue statements on occasion, to correct the record concerning false information the media reported. Although journalists have spread countless distortions and contrived non-controversies against the governor, she has never reacted to them in the way the current Vice President did today. The British Daily Mail reported (emphasis mine):
As the unaware $500-a-head invitees dined on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese, grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps, veteran reporter Scott Powers was locked away.
The Orlando Sentinel reporter was ushered into the closet inside wealthy property developer Alan Ginsburg’s Winter Falls mansion, after being told that Joe Biden and Senator Bill Nelson had not yet arrived.
They were due to speak to the audience to raise money for the 2012 elections.
I certainly hope Mr. Powers recovers from his ordeal covering the Democrat fundraiser.
