Sarah Palin wrote a lengthy Facebook post a few days ago ripping media double standards over the Josh Duggar molestation scandal in contrast with the muted media reaction to a disturbing incident Lena Dunham detailed about touching her sister when she was really young.
Palin repeated the same criticism when she appeared with Sean Hannity tonight to defend the privacy rights of Jessa and Jill Duggar, two of Josh Duggar’s sisters and victims.
Palin again went after the mainstream media for “re-victimizing” the Duggar sisters by foisting all this attention on them in the first place, but also criticized the act of interviewing them in the first place. And it’s worth pointing out here that interview was conducted by Fox News’ own Megyn Kelly.
Here’s Palin’s full quote:
“These girls are being re-victimized, for shame on the media for, under the guise of ‘Hey, gotta let them have their say anyway,’ let’s interview them and put them there, back into the fire, and let them explain. They’re innocent!”
