Poll: Fifty Percent Says News Coverage Of Sarah Palin Has Been FairPoll: Fifty Percent Says News Coverage Of Sarah Palin Has Been Fair

By Greg Sargent

It looks like the GOP's efforts to persuade the public that the press has been out to "destroy" Sarah Palin are a bit of a bust. Check out these numbers buried in the internals of the new ABC News poll:

Overall, do you think the news coverage of Palin has been fair or unfair?

Fair 50%

Unfair 41%

For some reason, more people think the press should actually do its best to tell them something about the person who is running for the second highest office in the land. Silly public.

Meanwhile, that 41% who say the coverage is unfair is probably a GOP baseline, though it should be noted that the McCain campaign's attacks on the media over Palin are largely about goosing the base in any case.
