"CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Sarah Palin had signed on as a contributor to the Al Jazeera America news network. The blogger cited a report on the Daily Currant Web site as the basis for that information without realizing that the piece was satirical."
"Without realizing"? The Daily Currant 'story' right above the Palin item is, "Glenn Beck Calls 911 After Accidentally Eating Halal Pizza" - and the site's About page begins, "The Daily Currant is an English language online satirical newspaper". How do you miss this - and go to press with such a remarkable 'fact' without seeking a confirming source - while having enough gray matter to breathe?
By assuming anything that fits your preconceived notions (narrative) must be true, therefore no need to check it out.
