Skip to comments.'Oopsies!': Us Weekly apologizes to Sarah Palin over using fake quotes
Posted on 02/11/2011 11:46:14 AM PST by The Unknown Republican
Us Weekly ran a story quoting Sarah Palin demanding that Christina Aguilera be deported over her botched performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV.
The only problem: It never happened.
The item quoted Palin trashing Aguilera as a demanding beauty queen whos clearly in over her head and adding for good measure, If I were president, Id deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is shes from and give Amy Smart a call.
The fake quotes originated from an Onion-like satirical web site, relaying a fictional radio interview between the former Governor of Alaska and Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Other choice quotes from Palin that fooled Us Weekly included, Heres another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She doesnt understand something so basic about America, yet were supposed to tolerate her diva behavior? and Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language?

Where did they get the quotes from? What was their source?
Rush said that Time magazine also ran with this fake quote.
Everyone will think it was Palin saying this, because half the American people STILL BELIEVE she said she could see Russia from her house.
I think Palin should sue.
An actual apology! What progress!
Problem is the wacko leftie blogs will pick up the lie and spread it around and millions of people will believe it.
Lazy bass turds. They should be sued for plagiarism.
She need only send them ONE BULLET “anonymously”. That should set their bowels aquiver.
Instead, they put in a file labelled “Fake, but accurate”.
Not that I would believe anything printed in such a rag, nor use a copy of Time magazine for anything other than to kill a bug.
These cretins deserve the wailing and gnashing of teeth they will certainly engage in when she becomes President.
Is that for real?
Took long enough. A bit BEHIND THE LEARNING CURVE are you?
Yes, it is from People magazine the week before the VP debate in 2008.
The best debate in the whole presidential campaign.
The greatest lawsuit of all will come with Palin winning the Presidency.
obama and romney probably.
The damage has already been done. It’s in print. ‘Nuf said. The lefties will wave that all around. US magazine is disgusting,especially after that sick photo of Elton John and his homosexual partner holding a baby as if it were theirs.
Now this. US magazine is probably in hysterics!
