Palin on Media 'Hypocrisy': Lena Dunham Is Praised, But Duggars Are 'Crucified'
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was on “Hannity” tonight to discuss the child molestation scandal involving Josh Duggar.
Writing on her Facebook page, Palin compared the media storm over the Duggar family to that of actress Lena Dunham, who wrote in her book that she gave candy to her one-year-old sister in exchange for a look at her vagina and kisses when she was a seven-year-old child.
"Lena Dunham, as I say, has been praised, rewarded and ... the media has this great big yawn when it comes to covering she or others that we have heard about on the liberal side of issues," Palin told Sean Hannity. "And yet they try to crucify an entire family for a 14-year-old boy's issue that he had."
The former GOP vice presidential hopeful said that the double standard and hypocrisy are "absolutely blatant in this case."
Palin added that the Duggar family has a right to privacy and that the Duggar sisters are being re-victimized by the media.
"The release of these confidential records ... it's tragic, it's illegal, it's unethical."
