Oops: WaPo retracts report Sarah Palin is going to Al Jazeera Update: Sarah snarks back

posted at 1:21 pm on February 12, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

What started as a condescending “cautionary tale” about Sarah Palin’s mixing of celebrity and politics quickly became a cautionary tale about mixing contempt for Sarah Palin with desperation for the traffic her name will generate.

Suzi Parker of the Washington Post‘s She the People blog reported Tuesday that Palin, in an attempt to “stay relevant,” would join the Al Jazeera America network, to “reach millions of devoutly religious people.” The only problem is the report comes from “The Daily Currant,” a parody site whose lead story today is “Catholic Church considering Jerry Sandusky for Pope.” A sampling of the original “report:”

After leaving Fox News, Palin said she was hoping to reach a broader audience with her message. When contacted by phone, Palin said Al Jazeera – with its extensive international network – offered her the best opportunity to broadcast to millions of people.

“As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general,” Palin said. “But I met with the folks at Al-JaJizzraa (sic) 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.”

Now, the original item has this correction appended to the top:

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

The article clips out the erroneous bits, but John Hayward has reproduced them as they were, with the silly quote and all:

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.”

E.M. Zanotti offers the upside:

The good news is, the Washington Post is still interested in digging up the hard news on failed Vice Presidential candidates from five years ago. They’re really that tenacious in their reporting. And you have to be in this day and age of the Internet and technology and smart phones and whatever. You really have to be at the top of your game on things that happened in 2008. They are important to the face of political discourse in America. And if you stop reporting them, Julianne Moore will have absolutely no reason to do a sequel to Game Change.

And, they’re dogged about it. More than an hour after other media reported the mistake, the Washington Post Twitter feed sent this out:

Iowahawk takes the downside:

So, next now that they made on retraction, they should try telling the truth of John F. Kerrys treason, lies and fraud.

The C.I.A. hat stands out, followed by the Hap River underwater mine that damaged the first swiftboat and then followed up by Kerry over accelarating his swiftboat up river 1500 meters, slowing turning and once more to fast he pulls up on the power throwing Lt. Rassmussen overboard, causeing Kerry to loose his balance and hit his arm. Then as there was no fire from any hostile VC or NVA as he lied about in is Purple Heart application.

Just one fact from all the swiftboats there that day.
One communication from them, one…

Not anymore! The Left now embraces a five college attender with a D-average and has become his fiercest champion since Obama nominated him for Secretary of Defence.

When I saw that on Drudge this morning, I thought if it was true, that is an uncharacteristic move for Palin. But I also thought that acting as an opposing voice, especially in a hostile terrain, is not actually wrong. FoxNews have a number of liberals and moonbats appearing as commentators. Turns out the story is a rather transparent hoax that WaPo still fell for.

Via Amazon and WaPo she wrote Sex in the South: Unbuckling the Bible Belt.

Curiously, the last stop on Parker’s erotic odyssey is a pilgrimage to Gennifer Flowers’s bar for a GLBT (gay, lesbian, bi, trans-gender) literary soiree that only leaves Parker fantasizing about Clinton.

One of Rush’s greatest truisms is that liberals will tell you who they fear the most.

Now, Palin is no Reagan, but she’d make a great Presidential candidate if she ever decided to run.

sauldalinsky on February 12, 2013 at 2:16 PM

What is really sad is that 90% of my fellow-Canadians will believe this and add it to the “facts” they already know about Palin. The fraction in Britain is probably even higher.

It is hard to believe we have the most conservative government in the western world right now. I have no idea how they got elected, given the degree to which socialism is accepted here.

If he doesn’t accept – maybe Sarah Palin is free, since she’s NOT working for Al Gorezeera anymore….

Oops: WaPo retracts report Sarah Palin is going to Al Jazeera

This is in the same category of those who said Palin was going to have her own reality TV show (beyond the video Alaskan travel brochure that was “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”). The hearts of Palin supporters sank, until we learned it wasn’t true. The message we were to believe was she was a huge sell-out (Like Al Gore).

MKH will get a lot of hits for this post. MKH you are awesome in every way, but I think you’d get more hits if you make firmer stands for what you believe. AP can get away with his intellectualizing. Not sure why it works for him. I see you on O’Reilly and I don’t understand how you keep it together while inside you probably have so many good-hearted, silly, current cultural references going on, but you do, to your credit. Pick some of the concepts you really care about and stand up for them. Make people take notice. You’re just too nice. I don’t think people hear you. Though your videos are awesome. You could do reality TV. NOT!
