Ann Althouse first made the observation, and she linked to a reporter shouting a question and Palin answering.

Charles Gibson's Holy War & Sarah Palin

If he was any sort of man, Gibson would apologize to Gov. Sarah Palin for deliberately misquoting her, and for his condescending tone, and for his "cueing" the left to their talking points, and for his relentless unprofessionalism and obvious disdain.He won't.
