Media Doing the Work of the Obama Opposition Research Team

Jon Henke posts the audio of a phone call made by a Wasilla, Alaska process server, who has been deluged by calls from the media, seeking salacious and damaging material about Sarah Palin:

The media is supposed to get to the truth, but in the case of Sarah Palin, all they want is the dirt. As Henke says:

This is the stuff that opposition researchers usually do. I would expect the Obama campaign and the DNC to go after the personal records of Palin’s family and friends like this, but the media? Did they go after Barack Obama this thoroughly on personal history?
