    A new report linking cell phone use to brain cancer makes headlines. But is the coverage based on fact or hype?

    Two big trials get big media attention. Does that help or hurt the cause of justice?

    I'm Jon Scott. "Fox News Watch" is on right now.

    PALIN: Many of the mainstream media are looking for kind of a conventional campaign tour. I said from the beginning this is not a campaign tour, except to campaign on our Constitution, our charters of liberty. And they want a kind of the conventional idea of, we want a schedule, we want to follow you, and we want you to bring us along with you. I'm like, A. I don't think I owe anything to the mainstream media. I think that it would be a mistake for me to become some kind of conventional politician and doing things the way that it’s always been done with the media, in terms of relationship with them. Tell them to come along and "we'll orchestrate this, we'll script this and we'll basically write a story for you" media, about what we're doing every day. No, I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this.

    SCOTT: Sarah Palin going "On the Record" there with Greta van Susteren. The Palin family is on the One Nation tour of historical sites and the media trying to keep up with her along the way.

    So, Judy, what do you think? Is she just toying with the media here?

    JUDY MILLER, WRITER & FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: I think she is having a wonderful time with the media, turning us into paparazzi, as one commentator noted. The other thing that strikes me about Sarah Palin is how much the media, some in the media, really do hate her. The commentary -- Gloria Borger saying, OK, get on with it already and stop tweeting, trying to tweet your way into relevance. There have been some really, really nasty comments about her.

    SCOTT: There have been some nice ones, too, like this one from Michelle Malkin, who wrote this week, "In the 1970s, the boys on the bus exposed how a clubby pack of male political reporters ruled the road to the White House and shaped news. Four decades later, an outsider gal from Alaska has commandeered the 2012 media bus and left Beltway journalism insiders eating her dust. We've come a long way, baby."

    Does that sum it up?

    (LAUGHTER)

    KIRSTEN POWERS, COLUMNIST, NEW YORK POST: Yeah, but I don't think it's that surprising that Michelle Malkin is saying nice things about her. I think, if you look at the mainstream media, there’s just a lot of hostility towards her. Pretty much everything she does makes them angry. What she said is exactly right. She owes them nothing. She doesn't have to play by their rules. It's refreshing to see somebody who just says screw you to these people who --

    (LAUGHTER)

    -- treat her like garbage.

    SCOTT: The media, Jim, have been saying to her that she is not respecting them because she wasn't letting them know her schedule, her itinerary in advance and so forth. And they are warning that that is going to hurt her -- yes, hurt her with voters. But the question is, I mean, it's not the voters angry with her. It's the media.

    JIM PINKERTON, FELLOW, NEW AMERICA FOUNDATION: Right. So Chris Matthews, who say she’s the most divisive politician since the Civil War - -

    (LAUGHTER)

    She's got a long way down. She can go lower than that in Chris Matthews' eyes, right?

    I’ve got to tell you, I saw the sneak preview of new movie by Stephen Bannon, called "The Undefeated," about Sarah Palin; it’s this documentary coming out later in the summer. In there is a brilliant quote from Andrew Breitbart, saying, "The thing the media hate about Sarah Palin is that she refuses to cooperate with her own demise."
