London, Sep 20 (ANI): A new book has blamed the media for persecuting former Republican candidate for U.S. Vice Presidential Sarah Palin.

'The Persecution of Sarah Palin and the Liberal War Against Red America' by the Weekly Standard writer Matthew Continetti, published by Sentinel, will hit shelves in April.

The writer has called it "the real story of the Republican vice presidential nominee and her collision with the elite liberal media," reports the New York Post.

He called Palin an instant phenomenon, which made people react to her charm, ambition, political talent, and passion for hockey-mom values.

But he said that what followed was "an unprecedented attack from the media".

The book throws around words like "malicious spin . . . deceit . . . liberal snobbery" and says, "Palin's enemies decided nothing's too personal to attack-including her marriage, children, faith, even her wardrobe."

"(And) almost every word out of her mouth was spun by the media as a 'flub' . . . the media distorted Palin's positions and beliefs beyond recognition," said the author. (ANI)
