Finally, the media’s slavering attack on the huge pile of Palin e-mails has generated some news. Sort of. MSNBC’s Open Channel blog reports:
The Twitter feed of the company that put online 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails for msnbc.com was hacked over the weekend, with vandals posting a series of pro-Palin and anti-Obama messages.
Among the tweets:
- Emails: Gov. Palin a Hard-Working Public Servant
- Email Witch-hunt Backfires
- Weiner’s America Or Palin’s America – That Is The 2012 Choice
- Obama’s Energy Policies to Drive Electricity Rates up 40 to 60%
- Editor-In-Chief of Reason Magazine: ‘Scrutinize Obama, Not Palin’
- Even the Washington Post Concedes The E-Mails “Underscore Palin’s Role as a Sincere Budget Cutter”
I hope they find these hackers and punish them for damaging the MSNBC brand by talking about stuff that actually happened.

P.S. Associated Press: “Palin emails let old media test new media methods.” Oh, okay. They meant to do that!
