Fox News Watch Panel Ignores Their Off-Air Criticism Of Palin While Bashing 'Snobbery' Of Other Critics


Apparently Fox New Watch's Jon Scott and Jim Pinkerton assume that none of their viewers know how to use the Internet or watched this clip of some of the off-air comments made about Sarah Palin on their show.

Here's what they said this week.

Scott: Sarah Palin's Alaska debuted on TLC last Sunday with record breaking ratings for that network. The show featuring the former Alaskan governor and her family as they explore our home state scored nearly five million viewers. TLC says it is the largest debut in the channel's history and yet the media critics were ready to pounce on her for putting that show together. Kirsten Powers, you're from Alaska. How about Kirsten Powers Alaska? […]

She is a draw! […]

Scott: Well and all kinds of critics were ready to pounce. In fact we said on this show last week there were some unsubstantiated reports that she was getting a million dollars or had asked for a million dollars an episode to do that show and I guess that turned out not to be the case. […]

Pinkerton: Golfers measure themselves on how much money they make. I think the snobbery in the coverage of her show which is a hit among real people is so thick you can cut it with a knife. I just... it boggles me that critics would turn themselves into such a stereotype that they would do exactly what you're expected to do which is pound away at her for being a Republican.
