A hypothetical NY Times hit piece on Palin

Some of Sarah Palin's closest supporters online are beating their breasts over a New York Times reporter who, while in Alaska, asked Sarah Palin a question about her national ambitions at a press conference.

The conclusion? A NY Times smear is brewing.


Joseph Russo over at Conservatives 4 Palin is wondering if The New York Times is about to unleash another hit piece against Alaska Governor Sarah Palin? His suspicions have been roused because there is a Times reporter suddenly skulking around Juneau likely interviewing Palin's enemies at the capitol.

The New York Times is not known to have sent too many reporters northward in the past, so this seems a bit odd especially since there really isn't anything major happening with Palin at this time. One of the questions that reporter Bill Yardley asked Palin at a recent press conference was about her possible plans to run for office on the national scene in the future. Apparently, the Times wants to smear her again in preparation to hurt her future chances and/or blunt any help she might give other Republicans that wish to run in 2010.
