LAS VEGAS â€“ Sarah Palin rallied an online army of conservative bloggers and activists Friday night at a Las Vegas conference, lambasting the â€œold mediaâ€ establishment for what she described as a failure to â€œtell the truthâ€ â€“ and pointing to President Obamaâ€™s election as the product of that failure.
Palin headlined the RightOnline convention with a speech that accused the media of not properly vetting Obama, whom she labeled a socialist, during the 2008 presidential campaign. She charged the media were more focused on investigating the price of her wardrobe than they were on probing Obamaâ€™s record.
â€œIf the media had done their job, we would have known of his strange attraction to leftist, radical ideas,â€ she said. â€œWe would have known that he actively sought out Marxist professors.â€
The former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential nominee went on to trumpet the work of the hundreds of bloggers and social media-savvy activists gathered at the conference inside the Venetian Hotel as critical in the 2012 presidential election.
â€œYou do what many in the old media canâ€™t do, wonâ€™t do, and thatâ€™s tell the truth,â€ she said.
â€œYou are an army of Davids against the old Goliath,â€ she said, referring to traditional news sources, which she repeatedly attacked throughout her fiery speech. â€œNew media is giving voice to the people because you are of the people and you are leading the charge.â€
But in her 35-minute speech meant to galvanize conservative online activists ahead of Novemberâ€™s vote, Palin, a Fox News contributor, made no mention of Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Palin has yet to officially endorse the former Massachusetts governor, who has now earned more than the 1,144 delegates needed to secure his partyâ€™s nomination.
