Skip to comments.WaPo Owned Slate.com Calls Sarah Palin a C*** in Headline
Posted on 02/23/2011 6:26:01 AM PST by kristinn
Washington Post owned Slate.com used a crude misogynist wordplay to call Sarah Palin a c*** in a headline for an article published Tuesday about a supposed secret Sarah Palin Facebook account.
The headline reads: Sarah Palin Uses Alternate Facebook Accunt to Praise Sarah Palin
The article, posted in Slates Slatest section, is based on an article from Wonkette titled, Sarah Palin Has Secret Lou Sarah Facebook Account To Praise Other Sarah Palin Facebook Account, that in a rare show of class for Wonkette does not use the sexist slur in the article.
Two commmenters at Slatest criticized Slate for the slur with one writing, Ive let go of my reflexive typo pointing in the Slatest, but Facebook accunt? on a Sarah Palins tidbit, come on guys, at least get a basic spellcheck function.
Given Slates prominence as a respected part of the mainstream media with professional standards to uphold, an innocent typo of this magnitude with this subject is highly unlikely.(For the benefit of Media Matters senior blogger Eric Boehlert, try to imagine Slate accidentally doing the same to Michelle Obama or Nancy Pelosi. It wouldnt happen.)
During the 2008 presidential campaign, liberal activists paraded in public wearing t-shirts emblazoned in large lettering, Sarah Palin is a c*** with the c-word fully spelled out.
The Slate article itself does not bear a timestamp, but the comments begin at 5:18 p.m., meaning the article with the offensive headline has been up for nearly four hours as of this writing.
Earlier today, Palin denied having a secret Facebook account, writing on her official Facebook page On a side note, theres always buzz about fake Sarah Palin Facebook and Twitter accounts. Please know that this is my only authentic Facebook account and SarahPalinUSA is my only authentic Twitter account. Pay no attention to the fake accounts and their fake messages.

kristinn, you know the jejune and juvenile minds in the State Run Media. They have NO intention of correction this ‘mistake’, ever, even if pointed out numerous times. It’s their idea of wit.
And if she were a male; she’d be a ........?
Ah, the misogynistic sodomist lefties. Such a class act.
Once again Sarah Palin ends up being the reason for incivility in civic discourse!
Proving time and again that democRATS do and say everything that they charge the conservatives of doing.
Wouldn’t expect anything less from the pathetic unimaginative commie/fascist/socialist/marxist/progressive dummies.
I must be blind or stupid or something...
In that case, not only is she a scuzzy c**t, she is also a skanky whore, a floozy and a bitch, and she deserves to have open body sores, HIV and 4th stage breast cancer.
It must be comforting to women to know that NOW has their backs.
These hypocrites make my stomach churn.
Slate and WaPo are smear addicks.
NOW was fine with Brown calling Whitman a whore. As long as it’s in a political context ya know. Political whore. No prob.
But but , it’s just a typo!/SARC
I checked Slate and Slatest headlines for errors. Amazingly, every one of the dozens of headlines is perfect, except this one.
Not surprising at all. WaPo is already a slut of the first order.
I hate that term. No wonder the country is dying. So much juvenile behavior anymore.
