A.P. writer rips Palin; didn't do same to Obama and ...

... most notably it's been revealed that she once donated to a far-left 527 organization.

Associated Press reporter Sara Kugler pounded out a 7-paragraph article today on how McCain running mate Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), has "[Banned] reporters from meetings with leaders" from around the world. Palin is in New York City for the open of the United Nations General Assembly. A review of media coverage from Obama's behind-closed-doors chats with European heads of state, however, shows no such complaint by the media about a lack of access.

Kugler complained that Palin "has not held a press conference in nearly four weeks of campaigning, on Tuesday banned reporters from her first meetings with world leaders, allowing access only to photographers and a television crew."

Yet when Sen. Barack Obama went to Europe this summer and met with past and present foreign leaders, print media were similarly on the outside looking in ... yet no complaint was registered in the article about lack of access, and Obama's European tour as a way to "burnish" his foreign policy credentials was recorded matter-of-factly. (Link.)

What a big surprise with the AP, eh? In Kugler's case, there's probably a good reason for her "dismay": She was a donor to a George Soros-funded 527 during the 2004 presidential campaign.

But c'mon. "Progressives" always tell us that the MSM is not liberal. And if its reporters are, they can still maintain their objectivity.

And the Pope is Jewish.
