There is just one teeny little problem: the story is totally fictitious.
Parody website The Daily Currant posted a “wide-ranging” “Interview” with “Palin,” in which she said things like:
“As you all know, I’m not a big fan of newspapers, journalists, news anchors and the liberal media in general,” Palin said. “But I met with the folks at Al-JaJizzraa (sic) and they told me they reach millions of devoutly religious people who don’t watch CBS or CNN. That tells me they don’t have a liberal bias.”
Apparently author Suzi Parker thought that was good enough to base a story on for the Post’s website.
As of 10 AM the post was still up and not corrected. A screengrab of the post is after the jump.
