Kurtz: Journalists privately admit they’re ‘censoring’ their coverage of Palin.


Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) campaign has undertaken an aggressive effort to accuse journalists of being overly hard on Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK). Campaign aides have attacked the media for being sexist, lacking “deference,” and trying to “smear” Palin. In today’s Washington Post, Howard Kurtz writes that in response, “some journalists say privately they are censoring their comments about Palin to avoid looking like they’re piling on.”
