Palin rallies conservative bloggers to avoid repeat of 2008

Sarah Palin rallied an online army of conservative bloggers and activists Friday night at a Las Vegas conference, lambasting the “old media” establishment for what she described as a failure to “tell the truth” – and pointing to President Obama’s election as the product of that failure.

Palin headlined the RightOnline convention with a speech that accused the media of not properly vetting Obama, whom she labeled a socialist, during the 2008 presidential campaign. She charged the media were more focused on investigating the price of her wardrobe than they were on probing Obama’s record.

“If the media had done their job, we would have known of his strange attraction to leftist, radical ideas,” she said. “We would have known that he actively sought out Marxist professors.”
