Shocking: Levin Johnston Shopping Tell-All Lie Book About Sarah Palin

Note he previously said, just this past month, he'd lied about her to get attention.

Now he's peddling more lies.

He will of course find an eager publisher.

And of course he should be published. Of course he should be a published author.

After all, he's accomplished so much -- he had unprotected sex with a younger girl, got her knocked up, and then abandoned her. And then, fearing that he soon might have to get a real job, he tricked her into accepting a false marriage proposal so he could sell the story to Us weekly for $100,000 (and also shop a reality show about the sham marriage).

Who wouldn't want to be in the Levi Johnston business?

Imagine if a man-boy had treated Chelsea Clinton in such a vile manner.

Now -- see if you can imagine publishing houses lining up to pay that man-boy a big advance.

Hard to imagine, eh?

So much of the media's behavior is dictated by its partisan sympathies and regard for social standing amongst their own. The Clintons are beloved by most in these institutions, so no editor with any concern for his future career or future standing among his peers would ever take this assignment; no house would sign a check.

But for a woman they hate -- a woman they've dehumanized as The Other -- then a provable scumbag gets signed up to talk his ignorant lies to an also-paid-for ghostwriter.

Remember how quickly the Reverend Wright story faded? ABCNews finally broke the story (after it was available for years, and after Obama had taken care of Hillary Clinton), and was attacked relentlessly by the left. JournoList, for example, schemed about how to punish ABCNews for reporting genuine news. (Belatedly, as hell.)

Those schemes on JournoList were not some aberration -- that was the shared sentiment of the entirety of the corrupt leftist media.

And those at ABC News who'd finally done their jobs felt the heat, felt the not-so-subtle social pressure, got the message from their peers that they were doing a Great Evil by doing their jobs.

And so, when Obama gave his ridiculously self-serving and question-dodging and lie-peddling "Great National Discussion on Race" -- a speech where race was a decidedly secondary topic to the much more important topic of Obama's continuing political viability -- the media fell over itself to declare the controversy "settled" (and settled by a speech worthy of Lincoln, too).

And ABCNews of course dropped the story, as all the media did; a CNN anchor even proudly declared his show a "Wright free zone."

They had never wanted to cover the story, and the moment they saw the opportunity to lie and say all questions had now been forthrightly answered, they declared the controversy settled.

Would the questions raised have been so easily settled by a self-serving speech given by a Republican caught in a similar situation? Of course not. But the herd mentality of the media -- all those dirty looks from peers and frantic calls from friends and colleagues -- worked.

They claim they don't make decisions about the newsworthiness of a story based on politics.

They lie.

50% of your standing in any public business is based on the opinion of your peers and colleagues. The other half is the actual clientele-- but as the media shows on a daily basis, they are less and less concerned about the audience.

Showing off, impressing your colleagues -- that's where the action is.

And whether you are deemed "brave" and "important" by your colleagues, or "pandering" and "frivolous," depends on which stories you cover and, crucially, which stories you don't.

And the media is in lockstep regarding which stories are "important" and which are "distractions."

Jeremiah Wright? Distraction.

But Levi Johnston....? Important.

They lie. That is almost all they do anymore. They lie in their reportage and then they rub salt into those wounds by lying about the reasons for their reporting decisions.

They all lie, and all from the same script of the same lies.

They lie to your goddamn face and then warble about their "integrity" and "professionalism," and how all their "experience" and "schooling" has dictated that only they know which stories are important. (Curiously, a frightening high percentage of "important" stories directly advance the interests of the progressive movement.)

They lie, and they lie, and they lie, and then they demand your respect and appreciation for their lies.
