Plus, much of the attention and criticism she has gained recently has come from her own party. The media go where the story is and that includes investigating infighting within the Republican party over Palin about her role in the '08 defeat. As well as 15 ethics complaints filed against her in her own state so of course the media is going to focus in upon her. The previous V.P. candidate who basked in the limelight of being a rising political rock star within the Republican party is now whining about too much attention!! Critical op-ed pieces and other media attention come with the territory toward ALL politicians at that level. Some of the stuff said about Barack Obama and Joe Biden was rough but politics is a rough and trouble business and Obama generally stayed calm, cool and collected. He didn't quit when the mud starting flying and his conviction helped carry him to victory.
She can't enjoy the spotlight and all the fame, power and money, which goes with that and yet somehow be exempt from the media being critical of her. That's not how a free press works. What she is basically saying is I want nothing but good, free press coverage and if I don't get it I'm going to whine, take my ball and go home. She's basically arguing against a free press, which is a sacred right within the Constitution. Yet she seems to have no problem with other political stars getting heavy media attention, investigation and critical editorials about them.
In fact, when other politicians have to face the glare of the media attention she has sided with the media and bitched about the person complaining!!! How deliciously ironic!! Remember this video when Hillary Clinton was protesting the media spot light?:
