Whoops! Us Weekly Publishes Sarah Palin/Christina Aguilera Spoof as Fact
7:01 pm, February 9th, 2011
This is really bad.
Us Weekly has published what it claims are comments made by Sarah Palin, in which the former vice presidential candidate blasts Christina Aguilera’s performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV.
Except the over-the-top “quotes,” which Us Weekly attributes to a Monday radio interview with Sean Hannity, were actually written for a satire website.
Again: Palin’s Aguilera comments are fabricated.
They come from a satire piece.
Only Us Weekly posted the “Palin” comments as real.
Therefore, according to Us Weekly, Palin calls Aguilera a “demanding beauty queen who’s clearly in over her head.”
The fake “Palin” also talks about wanting to “deport” Aguilera, because “spicy Latin princesses” shouldn’t be allowed to sing at the Super Bowl.
“Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language,” the fake “Palin” supposedly tells “Hannity” in the phony interview.
It boggles the mind that a major outlet could read these obviously satirical, fake quotes and treat them as the real deal.
However badly Aguilera botched the anthem last Sunday, Us Weekly just did a hundred times worse.
