NYRB buys idea of Palin's 'arduous...even dangerous' feats. Alaskans don't.

Janet Malcom in the New York Review of books offers this credulous appraisal of things Sarah Palin did on her television show: "Palin, who is both narrator and star of the series, performs arduous and sometimes even dangerous feats of outdoorsmanship to demonstrate the conservative virtue of self-reliance."

Well, bullshit.

Longtime Alaska outdoor journalist Craig Medred dissects that claim in Alaska Dispatch: " National Park Service rangers and other personnel who monitored the activities of Palin and her producers in the park say no one involved with "Sarah Palin's Alaska" was ever in any danger."
