WaPo Owned Slate.com Calls Sarah Palin a C*** in Headline
Gateway Pundit ^ | Tuesday, February 22, 2011 | Kristinn Taylor

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 Slate’s “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, “I’ve let go of my reflexive typo pointing in the Slatest, but Facebook accunt? on a Sarah Palin’s tidbit, come on guys, at least get a basic spellcheck function.”

Given Slate’s 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 wouldn’t 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, there’s 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.”

Slatist is owned by The Washington Post.

The offensive headline at Slate is unchanged as of this morning even though more commenters at the site have pointed out the slur.

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.

"NOW" gets real exercised when a woman is called this name, unless of course it's a conservative woman.

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.

I checked Slate and Slatest headlines for errors. Amazingly, every one of the dozens of headlines is perfect, except this one.

Right you are. I think Sarah should apologize immediately and kill herself, like Dan White. </s>

And, curiously, they will never correct this particular headline.

Better hope they never write a headline about Palin's britches or her cash hole.

Sarah Palin should start her own branded online k-12 school. It will send them over the edge. It really will.

"Palin’s electability can be reckoned as an inverse function of the virulent campaigns intent on her delegitimation. ! The greater the fury … she is met with, the greater the likelihood that she poses a genuine threat! One does not raise a mallet to crush an ant.”

The reality of what Sarah Palin does to liberals, maggot infected gays posing as journalists/writers, lesbians, abortion queens, and of course the kind and gentle Rinos is shown below:

I’m missing the slur, perhaps someone could explain what I am missing. I don’t see any reference to the word c—t or anything like that.

There is a screenshot of an article in Kristinns post. Where’s is the “o” in account? Not there. So, what does it say?

The 'C' word! Are they nuts?

That's THE most hated word in the English language for ALL women. Even for those females where 'that word' could reasonably apply. Like your 3rd ex-wife, mothers-in-law from hell, and all liberal female 'comedians'.

And I definitely wouldn't use it for a woman who hunts Elk, Wolves and Moose - and prolly has enough rifles to arm Peru.

[It's a good thing for them that Sarah has CLASS and is not a crazy psycho vindictive LIBERAL.]

Let me help you out here. The proper spelling of the word is "account".

Beyond that, you're on your own.
