    It's actually in the comedy section. So, I hope it was actually made up and not there because they thought that reality was comedy.

    If it's made up, I take this thread back.

    Time for you to appologize and take the thread back.

    'Oopsies!': Us Weekly apologizes to Sarah Palin over using fake quotes

    Whoops!

    Us Weekly ran a story quoting Sarah Palin demanding that Christina Aguilera be “deported” over her botched performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV.

    The only problem: It never happened.

    The item “quoted” Palin trashing Aguilera as “a demanding beauty queen who’s clearly in over her head” and adding for good measure, “If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is she’s from and give Amy Smart a call.”

    The fake quotes originated from an Onion-like satirical web site, relaying a fictional radio interview between the former Governor of Alaska and Fox News host Sean Hannity.

    Other choice “quotes” from Palin that fooled Us Weekly included, “Here’s another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She doesn’t understand something so basic about America, yet we’re supposed to tolerate her diva behavior?” and “Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language?”

    Us Weekly apologized for their mistake Thursday saying, “Oopsies...our bad!”

    "I had no interview with Sean [Hannity] and I have never bashed Christina," Palin told Us. "In fact, I've defended her by telling folks to back off the criticism of her mistake. I was telling my kids right after her national anthem issue blew up that people needed to lay off her mistake. And then to read to that I condemned her


    Great news source. Appartently they don't have fact checkers.

    Yeah, Buzz...I must say, for someone who's constantly harshin' on "faux news," you don't seem too chagrined (properly or otherwise) about your Rachel Maddow moment of fobbing off on us an Onion-esque article as if it were the gospel. I'm just sayin'.....

    Don't need to wink about that, John. Now that Olberdork is gone to the Algore channel (and as Jay Leno said, he's an "investigative reporter," assigned to finding a viewer of that channel), we can expect Rachael Madcow to 'step it up a notch' so messnbc continues to stay as obnoxious as before.

    This entire fiasco was amusing because of the usual guppies that bought into it. Shouldn't raise any eyebrows, however, since we know most of their 'news' comes from the comedy channel....and when have they ever tried to lead on their viewers?
