MSNBC host misplaces Kenya: Yesterday afternoon, HuffPost didn’t let a gaffe made by MSNBC’s Touré go unmentioned. While the host was giving the viewing audience a “Monday geography refresher” regarding the Kenya’s whereabouts, he completely botched the region. In no way did he describe Kenya’s geographical location, nor did he come close. Andrew Kaczynski from BuzzFeed called out Touré first VIA Twitter while utilizing a picture of a highlighted Kenya in its actual African location.

Why you should read it: Although these slip ups happen to everyone from time to time and they’re always accidental, they’re also always hilarious and fun to watch!

Sarah Palin demands names: MediaMatters’ blogger Oliver Willisrecently posted a story about Fox News contributor/Russian coastline enthusiast Sarah Palin, regarding her rogue tweet aimed at Fox News Sunday host, Chris Wallace. Wallace announced during the show that he would use “the unsolicited research and questions” of several top Republicans to “hammer” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in response to the efforts Cruz has recently been making in trying to defund Obamacare. Upon hearing Wallace’s plan, Palin took to the tweets and demanded he surrender his “top Republican” sources to be “fair and balanced.”

Why you should read it: Sarah Palin is still trying to be relevant as she attempts to shake down a Fox News reporter through Twitter for some (possibly made up) sources, and it is adorable! Check out the video to see exactly what Wallace said to set Palin off.

Ruth Marcus Has Friends In High Places

So says The Washington City Paper’s Erik Wemple:

    This afternoon, Washington Post commentator Ruth Marcus discovers whether she’s won a Pulitzer Prize for the commentary she wrote last year. Marcus, in Pulitzerese, is a “nominated finalist” for the award. Whichever way it goes, Marcus will be thanking her friends and colleagues at the Post. For real.

    That’s because Marcus wouldn’t be enjoying this distinction without her friends and colleagues. Her nominating package comes courtesy of an extracurricular effort manned by Posties Susan Schmidt, Sari Horwitz, and Dana Priest. The trio teamed up on Marcus’s behalf when it became clear that the Post’s own Pulitzer submissions wouldn’t feature a packet for Marcus, who focuses on national politics and social policy issues in her Op-Ed pieces.

    “It was just an idea that was presented to me by my colleague Susan Schmidt, and I thought it was a great idea. I had no second thoughts,” says Priest.
