Palin Sounds Off On Media, McCain Campaign At GOP Dinner (VIDEO)

CNN picks up on a speech Sarah Palin gave last week to the Alaska GOP, posted online this Tuesday, where she again expressed frustration with the media.

"Some in the media actually participated in not so much the 'who-what-where-when-why' objective reporting on candidates and positions, those five W's that I learned when I had a journalism degree so many years ago in college, when the world of journalism was quite different than it is today," she said.

"No, things have changed," she continued. "But complaining? Or whining? Absolutely not. But I am going to call it like I see it. It doesn't do any good to whine about any of this. But I can call it like I see it. Sometimes it gets me in a lot of trouble when I speak candidly, and I speak from the heart and I do such a thing. But I am going to."

"And there was that media slant this go round," she said. "And unless things change, the GOP had really better can stand together, 'cause we got that on the battlefield also. I call it like I see it and like I lived it on the campaign trail. Not complaining, but dealing with reality."

Palin also criticized " those goofy Defenders of Wildlife celebrity starlets who don't even know about Alaska" -- meaning Ashley Judd and the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, which has targeted Palin for her support of aerial wolf hunting. Of the McCain campaign, she said that when she wanted some support before her debate with Joe Biden, there was "nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray."
