Great Moments in Unmerited Media Elitism: A ‘Black Friday’ Classic Flashback

The media, blogs and others have been mocking Sarah Palin for saying “we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies,” even though if you listen to the entire clip, seconds earlier Palin mentioned the sanctions against North Korea. She knows the difference even though the left would like to pretend otherwise.

One of those members of the talking-head media who calls Palin dumb on a fairly consistent basis is Joy Behar. If she hasn’t already, I’m certain that Joy will mention Palin’s Korea slip-up.

Today, Black Friday, marks the one-year anniversary of the super-brilliant Palin critic Behar wondering if the term “Black Friday” is based in racism:

GOLDBERG: Oh, hello and welcome to ‘The View.’ Today is Black Friday, all day long,” Goldberg said. “And I’m going to stay black all day because of it.

BEHAR: Isn’t it a little racist to call it Black Friday?

GOLDBERG: Well, I would have called it African American Friday, but that’s taking something away from it.

BEHAR: But there’s a negative connotation to it? Or does it mean something else?

GOLDBERG: No, it’s like when you make all the money – you’re in the black.

BEHAR: So it’s positive?

GOLDBERG: Yeah. It’s in the black, so it’s a huge great thing.

Speaking of the Palin thing, Sarah responded to the media making a big deal over her slip of the tongue the only way Sarah can — she gave them a halibut club between the eyes: A Thanksgiving Message to all 57 States.

If only the media would have been this hyperanalytical of every Obama & Biden gaffe.
