Palin tells Bernanke ‘cease and desist’-report
WASHINGTON, Nov 8 (Reuters) – Tea Party favorite Sarah Palin on Monday weighed in on the global debate over the Federal Reserve’s $600 billion plan to buy up government debt, suggesting Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke should “cease and desist.”
Why would Reuters, a fist class news reporting organization, run an article featuring Sarah Palin’s opinion about this?
Though some political persons may enjoy her time in the headlines, I hardly believe that most Americans really care what she believes when economic methods are the topic…Reuters is not Wonder Wall… right?
As the second paragraph of our story said, Palin is widely seen as a prospective 2012 Republican presidential candidate.
That, coupled with her party’s election gains just a few days earlier, means her opinion on such issues is newsworthy: GBU Editor
