WaPo Lib Taken in By Satire Site’s Post About Sarah Palin

A few weeks ago, the same site fooled libs a number of libs on the internet when it ran a story claiming that  Ann Coulter caused a ruckus, and refused to board a plane because the pilot was a black female.

Hello libs, if headlines like Sean Hannity Says Obama ‘Sabotaged’ Super Bowl, and  Glenn Beck Calls 911 After Accidentally Eating Halal Pizza don’t tip you off that something’s awry, remember the name - “The Daily Currant.” It’s a satire site.
Iowahawk had fun with this story at the Conversation:

Something called “Suzi Parker” who writes something called “She The People” at something called “The Washington Post” bagged the scoop of the century earlier today, in a report originally entitled “Sarah Palin’s plan to reach ‘millions of devoutly religious people’ through al-Jazeera“:

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.”

Get it? Sarah Palin’s so stoopid she didn’t know that the devoutly religious people Al Jazeera reaches are Muslims!

The Suzi Parker story is actually a cautionary tale about what can happen when politics and liberal bias and gullibility meet.

Parker not so smoothly tried to correct her gaffe with a correction that still included a nasty dig at Palin:

UPDATE:

An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Sarah Palin planned to contribute to the Al Jazeera America news network.

The original article was titled “Sarah Palin’s plan to reach ‘millions of devoutly religious people’ through al-Jazeera.” The amended now reads “Sarah Palin tries to stay relevant.”

As you can imagine, Parker’s taking a beating in the Post’s comment section:

“LOL, look how stupid that woman is! … Wait. What?”

LOL…WaPo struggling to stay relevant…

New verb: Reporters who report parody articles as news have been “Onioned”.

What’s next Suzi? Is Al Gore joining Fox News?

Hey, Suzi, I just heard Palin has signed on to become the spokeswoman for the crab people who live at the center of the earth and are planning on conquering the surface world.  Be sure to mention that without checking it out in your next hit piece, you dimwitted hack.

Looks like if Suzi dropped a few pounds, she might be as hot as Sarah Palin.

Nice job Suzi! I got a picture of Palin in bikini holding an assault weapon you might be interested in too. Geez!
