The coverage of Palin, which is taking away from reporting on the more credible Republican contenders, is all the more striking given the grumblings among the media, in light of what they view as a less-than-sizzling start to the 2012 presidential campaign.

Others went on the record to argue there just wasn’t much news to cover yet, at least in comparison to 2008.
