"The Guardian is no better than any other branches of media in its Palintology. I wrote a brief, innocuous piece on Palin mixing up North and South Korea and it got shared a whopping 34,000 times on Facebook (when a typical article is doing well to get 1,000 Facebook shares). Palin has been tagged 1,100 times in Guardian articles, and probably mentioned in many more, all since 2008. (Joe Biden, in contrast, has been tagged just 250 times.)"That's why, though a dangerous trend, the Washington Post's and Dana Milbank's "just for fun" boycott of a major political figure won't work out. The reader's market has already given its evaluation of sidelining Governor Palin.
