Sarah Palin and the Blazing Media Bias of Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican firebrand Sarah Palin invaded the city she loves to hate on Saturday and rubbed shoulders with the herd of journalists she usually holds in disdain.

The above headline penned by Reuters news agency says more about them than it does Sarah Palin.  It is another example of liberal media bias on steroids. 

The intro has four highly emotive words with negative connotations.  In one sentence Reuters describes Palin as an "invader," a "hater," some kind of fanatic (a "firebrand") who "loves to hate" and who holds people in contempt, i.e. she disdains them.  You can also infer from the comment that she is also a hypocrite, as she is now "rubbing shoulders" with the persons disdained.

Disgusting.  See it for yourself here.

Webster's definitions: 
firebrand:  one that creates unrest or strife (as in aggressively promoting a cause) : agitator
invader:  1 : to enter for conquest or plunder  2 : to encroach upon : infringe
disdains:  a feeling of contempt for someone or something regarded as unworthy or inferior : scorn
