On Feb. 4, the Daily Currant published a satirical piece stating that Palin was "bouncing back by joining the fledgling Al Jazeera America news network as a host and commentator." WP reporter SuziParker cited the piece and used quotes that the Currant attributed to Palin, including:
Al Jazeera spokesman Stan Collender confirmed to POLITICO that Sarah Palin is notjoining the global news network, which -- as Parker notes -- was recently called “an anti-American terror mouthpiece" on Fox News, where Palin was a contributor.
Sarah Palin took Washington Post as well as Suzi Parker to task:
Well, the internet is not the place to shout out and expect no reaction!
And if anyone thinks the rest of America left Suzi Parker alone…
#SuziParkerScoops doesn't think Al Gore selling his network to Al Jazeera is a big deal. Yes. Credible peaceful group.— Bill Hughes (@Bill__Hughes) February 12, 2013
Ah well, such is the cyber world and we shall eagerly await the next faux-pas!
