Reporters on open mic caught bashing Palin

UPDATE: Politico has some of the quotes.

A group of reporters covering a Sarah Palin speech in California last week were caught on a hot microphone making fun of the former governor while covering the event.

“Oh my God, I feel like I just got off a roller coaster, going round and round, and up and down,” one journalist is heard saying of Palin’s remarks. “S—- flying out everywhere.”

Palin's speech was at California State University, Stanislaus, in Turlock. The comments were caught by a local Fox affiliate, and in a statement the station says the reporters were warned several times that a microphone was picking up their conversation. . . .

A second reporter is heard on the recording comparing Palin’s speech to a bad college paper.

“When you've got to write a report as a college student and you just try to jam as many quotes in as possible…That's what I got,” the male reporter said.

A third journalist later says, “She didn’t finish a statement,” to which another chimes in “Did she make a statement? Because I didn't catch that either.”
