Michael Calderone at Politico has a piece looking at how Sarah Palin has been surprised by the glare of the national media spotlight. The interesting nuggets are the quotes from political journalists in Alaska who said they'd heard that Bristol Palin was pregnant but would expend any energy pretending that was a story.
"I knew Bristol was pregnant in May," said Andrew Halcro, a prominent blogger who ran against Palin in the 2006 gubernatorial race as an Independent. "So that rumor's been out there, but it would have never come out."
Halcro is the blogger who broke the story that Palin might have had personal motivations in firing Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan, so he's not the sort who would be inclined to give the governor a break.
So, does this suggest lack of intellectual curiosity on the part of Alaska media, or do they have better sense than national reporters?
John Kass thinks it's the latter.
