Dana Perino: Media Was ‘Disappointed’ Palin’s Emails Did Not Prove She Was Stupid Or Evil

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino appeared on 'Fox & Friends' this morning and enjoyed the fact that Sarah Palin was able to score a victory over the media. Steve Doocy asked Perino for her thoughts on newspapers asking their readers to do their “dirty work” and sift through Palin’s recently released emails, something Perino found amusing especially since Palin won in the end.

Dana Perino: “When it comes to Sarah Palin there is an obsession that nearly turns into a circus. . . . The media asked their readers to help them read through the emails as if they were trying to find something that would either prove she was evil, prove she was stupid, prove she did something wrong in office. And they’re disappointed, and the thing that is great to me. Guess who wins again? Sarah Palin.”
