Washington Post blogger Suzi Parker reported that Sarah Palin was going to start contributing to the Al Jazeera America news network
, as a way to "stay relevant." The source for this info was an article on the humor site Daily Currant
. Parker's blog post is now prefaced by a correction, and the erroneous info has been deleted. What Parker originally wrote was:
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."
Sarah palin tweeted a response
to Suzi Parker: "Hey @washingtonpost, I'm having coffee with Elvis this week. He works at the Mocha Moose in Wasilla. #suziparkerscoops #idiotmedia"
