A cautionary tale about what can happen when sloppy reporting, liberal prejudice, and Internet comedians meet
It's even funnier when you read the material that has been surgically removed from Parker's post:
Late last week Al Jazeera America announced the former vice-presidential candidate would be joining their news network. “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.”
It couldn't be much more obvious that it's a parody, written to appeal to those with Suzi Parker's obsessions and biases. I suspect the hack Parker just ran with something she received by email or Twitter without even bothering to take a cursory glance at the source website, the Daily Currant, because their main page is filled with headlines like "Catholic Church Considering Jerry Sandusky as Next Pope."
But even a few moments of thought about the material, quoted blind, would have tipped anyone with the slightest degree of discernment that it's not true. "They told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don't watch CBS or CNN?" Not even Joe Biden is that stupid.
