WHOA! Mike Pence LIVID With Media, Defends His Wife…You’ll Never Believe Why!

Liberals are always the first ones to start screaming that “wives and children should be off limits” when it comes to criticizing politicians. Of course, they rarely follow that rule themselves.

Despite Michelle Obama’s laughable talking point that when Republicans “go low,” she and her fellow Democrats “go high,” we all know the exact opposite is the case.

The same is true in the media world. The same reporters, columnists, editors and publishers who love to lecture conservatives about hypocrisy and decent behavior rarely live up to their own lofty standards.

This latest story is a small but revealing example of either journalistic malpractice or incompetence that illustrates this phenomenon to a tee:

Vice President Mike Pence is demanding the Associated Press apologize for publishing and then refusing to take down a story with the email address of Karen Pence.

“When we requested they take it down, they refused. The @AP owes my wife an apology,” Pence tweeted Saturday, along with a copy of a letter to the news outlet from Mark Paoletta, counsel to the vice president.

In a Friday story, the Associated Press published Pence’s active private email address to millions of its readers. In turn, Paoletta said, Mrs. Pence was subjected to “vitriolic and malicious emails and raised serious security concerns.”

Ostensibly, Mrs. Pences’ email address was deemed relevant to the public interest after it was reported that the future vice president had used a private AOL email account instead of his official one when he served as governor of Indiana.

This allegation prompted some journalists to investigate his family’s other email habits and thus, Karen Pence’s email address was printed, leading to an avalanche of nasty abusive messages.

Even in connection to such stories, whatever they supposedly revealed, it is was clearly unnecessary for any media outlet to print the email address itself.

It would be no different than publicizing someone’s home address or phone number, since that can be viewed as an implicit invitation for crazy and possibly dangerous people to harass the person in question.

In fact it is worse because it is so much easier to harass someone via the internet than in person.

And the media seriously wonders why Americans hate them so much and are abandoning traditional news outlets in droves.
