Sarah Palin Scolds Media For 'Futile Search For Scuttlebutt'
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Sarah Palin says her bus tour of the eastern United States was "one of the best weeks" of her life.
In a new web video released by the former Alaska governor's political action committee, Palin reflects on the trip, which just wrapped up after launching in Washington, D.C. Memorial Day weekend. The three-minute clip features footage of the big name Republican on the road, as well as clips of interviews with voters.
Palin took the opportunity to scold the media in a statement released with the video.
"Even though the media too often sadly chose sound-bites over substance, they did get lots of substance during our 'One Nation' tour from the nearly two dozen opportunities I got to speak candidly with them and talk about policy, politics, history, and everything in between," she said. "Not surprising, some members of the media missed a lot of this due to their relentless and futile search for scuttlebutt."
While Palin appeared to more actively engage with members of the press during stops on her trip, the former governor had to contend with some less favorable coverage along the way.
The former governor came under scrutiny when she snatched the spotlight from Mitt Romney in New Hampshire the day he launched his presidential campaign. >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
