Fail Blog Sets the Failure Record Straight on Whitman Video


You know those fake magazine covers you get done at Magic Mountain? You and your bonehead cousin on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Well, Meg Whitman did that with Fail Blog. She dummied up a red “FAIL” for her opponent Jerry Brown.

The Fail Blog called her out on it:

Some of you have emailed us concerning a political attack video by the Meg Whitman campaign for California governor which features a screenshot of FAIL Blog attacking the other candidate Jerry Brown. We want to make it VERY clear that FAIL Blog nor the Cheezburger Network had any involvement or knowledge of the Whitman campaign use of a screenshot of FAIL Blog. In fact, the screenshot portrayed in the video never existed because the Whitman campaign faked the content within the screenshot. FAIL Blog or the Cheezburger Network has never been involved in any endorsement of any candidate or political party and do not plan to do so.

They have demanded Whitman stop using the video and requested Brown not use the incident in his campaign. That second one seems unreasonable. Can I haz a fair game?

And yes, this race is already too catty for LOLcats.

Here’s the site.
