Oops!… WaPo Crank Falls For Dumb Palin Prank – Gets Burned
Liberal hacks will believe anything… As long as it is an attack on Sarah Palin.
Palin-hating WaPo “cultural journalist” Suzi Parker slammed Sarah Palin today for taking a job with Aljazeera.
Too bad it was bogus.
Suzi Parker got punked.
The only problem with Parker’s scoop is that the news of Palin’s move comes from the comedy news site The Daily Currant, which recently published a wide-ranging “interview” with Palin about her lateral career move. The Daily Currant describes itself as “the global satirical newspaper of record.”
“As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general,” Palin told the Web site The Daily Currant. “But I met with the folks at Al-Jazeera and they told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don’t watch CBS or CNN. That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.”
“Ironically, Fox News recently called Al Jazeera “an anti-American terror mouthpiece,” Parker noted ironically.
Suzi Parker got her information from The Daily Currant, a satire website.
The WaPo has since put up a correction:
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Sarah Palin had signed on as a contributor to the Al Jazeera America news network. The blogger cited a report on the Daily Currant Web site as the basis for that information without realizing that the piece was satirical.
