Loser Says Palin Banned Books
Time is getting a lot of press over its revelation that Sarah Palin, as mayor, tried to ban some books from the local library and threatened to fire the librarian.
Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. “She asked the library how she could go about banning books,” he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. “The librarian was aghast.” The librarian, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn’t be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire her for not giving “full support” to the mayor.
Stein is, curiously, the LOSER that Palin beat in the mayor’s race. Nothing from the librarian and no cites for the “news reports from the time”.
Just a fact free diatribe from a LOSER and Time presents it as fact.
Palin would not have been the first mayor to be approached by voters and asked about the books that the library stocked. I suspect you could find hundreds if not thousands of similar stories. Even state governments and [gasp] Congress have fallen into that trap. No books were banned.
A small town mayor responded to the concerns of her fellow villagers. Just like mayors all over the world do every single day.
She did not fire the librarian. We do not know what was going on since the “news reports from the time” are not quoted or cited and the librarian was not found for comment.
This isn’t journalism. It’s tabloid trash.
