@Crackr: I get the online version of the Christian Science Monitor. It gets emailed to me weekly, ergo it is a PERIODICAL which is not the same as the Monitors website. Every other major publication does the same thing. Your futile effort to cloud the issue in pointless semantics is getting you nowhere. The fact is she was asked a very simple question, and she failed to answer it. And instead of coping to her mistake and clarifying it she attacked the "lamestream media" instead.

Katie Couric's question was "What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read?" (Full clip here.)
Maybe it`s the Christmas spirit, but rewatching Palin`s response today, I`m inclined to be more forgiving of Palin than I was the first time around. She`d just been thrust onto the national stage by McCain, was nervous for this big interview, and her mind clearly blanked. She then tried to finesse the question in a way that she`d no doubt successfully done before with the local media. But Couric and CBS pounced on the moment to make the case (accurately, I think) that Palin wasn`t quite ready for the big leagues.
