Washington Post Will Believe Anything About Palin
Welcome to your flub of the day. Suzi Parker at the Washington Post fell for a satirical article on Sarah Palin joining Al-Jazeera this morning.
The Sarah Palin Story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and celebrity meet.
Fox News and their once-upon-a-time darling Palin recently parted ways after three years. But never fear. Palin has a new media outlet by which to share her commentary.
Late last week Al Jazeera America announced the former vice-presidential candidate would be joining their news network. Al Jazeera America recently bought Al Gore’s failing Current Media that broadcasts the Current TV channel. Ironically, Fox News recently called Al Jazeera “an anti-American terror mouthpiece.”
“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.”
That’s right, don’t let the facts stand in the way of another hit piece on Sarah Palin or the GOP. Well done, WaPo, well done.
