UPDATE: Stop Making Things Up!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

UPDATE: I will be a guest on #1 Alaska Talk Radio Host Eddie Burke's show TODAY at 5:45p.m.PST/8:45p.m.EST. Eddie and I will be discussing the ridiculous Sarah rumors out there. If you live in Alaska, you can listen to a.m.700 KBYR. Outside Alaska? Listen online www.kbyr.com. Spread the word-Thanks!!!

NO, Sarah Palin and her family are not going to be starring in a reality show, and NO, Sarah Palin and her family did not push their way into a pre-Oscar party just to "load up" on free samples, otherwise known as a swag bag giveaway. Once again, the msm are doing their best to paint Sarah as an attention-seeking diva who will do just about anything to get attention and make money. When did it become okay to falsely report a story as the truth? When did it become okay to stop checking the facts? I guess when it comes to Sarah and her family, the media and liberal left will stop at nothing to attempt to destroy her character. I can tell you right now that people are not buying this. People are beginning to realize that the msm are nothing more than mouthpieces for the liberal left.

I am so glad that so many individuals are confronting these false reports head on. Politico is one of the media sources that got the story on the reality show right the first time:

"The focus of series would be Alaska and will be similar to a nature series on the Discovery Channel.

'It will not be focused on the Palin family, Alaska is going to be the star,' the source said. 'It will be more ‘Planet Earth’ than the Osbournes go North.'”

Thank you, Politico for taking the time to actually investigate the story instead of writing a piece of fiction. Sarah is a great ambassador for her state. She wants others to see how beautiful and authentic the state of Alaska is. I can tell you right now that the state of Alaska has already won this lifelong California girl over.

The other falsely reported story out there about Sarah and her "entourage," as the msm described them, stocking up on tons of freebies is being blown way out of proportion and another untruth. Here is just a sample of the crazy stuff that is being reported about this issue:

"Sarah Palin showed up at a celebrity gift suite with two daughters, her brother and a small entourage in tow and loaded up with free promotional cosmetic and fashion items being given away in connection with Oscar-week festivities.

Lorna Khoo of Cardstore.com and various other vendors exhibiting their wares at the Silver Spoon gift suite said the former vice presidential candidate visited the suite on Wednesday morning and snapped up organic soaps from Wembe, personalized stationery from Cardstore.com, leopard-print wedge sandals from Bandals, and a slinky robe from Jenna Leigh lingerie."
(Baltimore Sun)

Give me a break. Everyone has been given freebies during their lifetime. We all know companies give out free stuff with the hope that individuals will return to buy their product. Sarah received what any other individual in attendance received. To say that she and her family members "showed up and loaded up" makes it sound like she was a party crasher just out to have a good time. Melissa Lemer from Silver Spoon, the organization who put on the event, which was also a charity event for Haiti, has released the following statement demanding an apology:


The Silver Spoon, a company owned and operated by women and established with a firm belief in supporting women in business and leadership, invited Governor Sarah Palin and her family to participate in a charitable function sponsored by The Silver Spoon and the Red Cross to support the Red Cross’ disaster relief efforts in Haiti. Governor Palin graciously accepted since it was in support of such a worthy and timely cause. The governor arrived with a small group about 15 minutes prior to our store’s official opening; and upon arrival, she and her entire group gave generous donations to the cause. We offered to open early to accommodate her schedule; she did not ask us to open early. The other vendors routinely set up an hour before the event opens, so they were already there when the governor arrived. No one was asked to come in early. When Governor Palin arrived, she and her guests made generous donations. I escorted her around and introduced her to every vendor, and they talked to her about their products and gifted her with samples. She never asked for anything but politely accepted the products. The governor and her family and guests were very gracious and respectful to everyone. We asked and the governor happily agreed to take a photo with the American Red Cross staff and the staff of The Silver Spoon. The governor stayed for a total of about 35 minutes, thanked everyone, made an additional generous personal donation pledge to the Red Cross, and then departed.

The stories currently circulating about Governor Palin’s attendance at our event are total fabrications. Just one example of the many falsehoods is the ridiculous idea that Governor Palin walked away with 40 AIAIAI headphones. In reality, she was given two pairs of AIAIAI headphones – one for herself and one for her daughter Bristol who could not attend the event. The idea that she took 40 pairs is an outrageous falsehood. It would have been impossible because the vendors only bring around 100 items for the entire two day event. They would have run out of product after an hour of opening yesterday.

Just to clarify things, the entire point of giving someone a swag bag is to have them take your product and hopefully purchase more. The whole point of giving away products is to “give them away.” That’s why we call this type of evehttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifnt style a “gifting suite.”
We would like an immediate retraction and an apology to The Silver Spoon, its vendors, and especially to Governor Sarah Palin.

Yep, just another example of the liberal msm at work; it definitely gives new meaning to the phrase "all in a day's work." I am so glad that great organizations like The Silver Spoon are not going to let the false reporting go unnoticed. I wonder if the delusional msm will ever... really... get... it....
