Media Matters Lying, Again

| | Comments (0)

The leftwing Media Matters lies. A lot. And their page of Palin Myths is no exception.

There's several objectionable claims included in their list of "myths and falsehoods" in the media coverage of Sarah Palin, but the most obviously and clearly false is: "Media fail to challenge McCain camp talking point that Palin is 'commander in chief' of the Alaska National Guard."

It is true that the media fail to challenge it, of course, just as the media also fails to challenge the claim that Bush is the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces, and the claim that the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Every governor is the commander-in-chief of their national guard, when not in active federal service. And as Alaska Statute 26.05.060 states, "The governor as ex officio commander of the militia of the state has command of the Alaska National Guard and the Alaska Naval Militia while they are not in active federal service."
