  • 'Oopsies!': Us Weekly apologizes to Sarah Palin over using fake quotes

    02/11/2011 11:46:14 AM PST · by The Unknown Republican · 44 replies
    Whoops! 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 who’s clearly in over her head” and adding for good measure, “If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is she’s 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...
  • Whoops! Us Weekly Publishes Sarah Palin/Christina Aguilera Spoof as Fact

    This is really bad. Us Weekly has published what it claims are comments made by Sarah Palin, in which the former vice presidential candidate blasts Christina Aguilera’s performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV. Except the over-the-top “quotes,” which Us Weekly attributes to a Monday radio interview with Sean Hannity, were actually written for a satire website. Again: Palin’s Aguilera comments are fabricated. They come from a satire piece. Only Us Weekly posted the “Palin” comments as real. Therefore, according to the outlet, Palin calls Aguilera a “demanding beauty queen who’s clearly in over her head.” The fake...
  • Sarah Palin calls Christina Aguilera an "airhead diva," wants her deported (MSM Hoax)

    Sarah Palin has reportedly put Christina Aguilera on blast for her botched national anthem during the Super Bowl. According to US Magazine, Palin spoke to Sean Hannity during a radio interview on Monday, and called Aguilera a "demanding beauty queen who's clearly in over her head." Sarah went on to say, "Public figures must be held accountable for what they say. Here's another case of an airhead diva going on TV, running her mouth off, sounding like a fool. She doesn't understand something so basic about America, yet we're supposed to tolerate her diva behavior? Americans can see through that,...

    LOS ANGELES -- Levi Johnston will make his music video debut as a lover whose romance is thwarted by his girlfriend's disapproving mother, according to a Universal Music Group record label and Johnston's attorney. Johnston, 20, who is Bristol Palin's fiance, has agreed to appear in the video with singer-songwriter Brittani Senser next month in Los Angeles. ... According to a written description of the video's story line, the couple share tender moments before they are driven apart by the young woman's mother. Unaware that her mom's interference forced her boyfriend to go, she "throws herself into her mother's arms....

    A rumor started by US Weekly alleges that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are “spending nights together” at her new condo in Anchorage. An anonymous source told the rumor to US Weekly. Subsequently, other major media outlets picked up the story, without fact-checking and the story spread like wild fire. Responsibility to Children Continues After Relationship Breaks When a couple has children, even if the romantic union dissolves, each partner has certain responsibilities to the children they’ve brought into this world. Bristol has been doing a fantastic job in this regard, as reported by Elisa Lipsky-Karasz in a Harper’s Bazaar...

    The liberal media is trying to present a case that fewer than 1000 readers have actually canceled their USWeekly subscriptions - despite original stories that as many as 10,000 canceled. USWeekly certainly has NOT responded in public, and NO MSM writer has done anything other repeat the original story as we received it on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after Sarah was nominated for VP. Regardless of subscriptions, Walgreens, McDonald's, and JCPenney have been quick to respond to my emails complaining about the abhorrent, misleading and disgusting treatment USWeekly gave Sarah Palin as their cover story and inside copy last week....

    I scanned the pages of Us Weekly magazine over the weekend. As if there were any doubt about how much of an Obama propagandist vehicle Us has become, behold: “Michelle’s Campaign Style.” We learn that “Michelle’s style can best be described as ‘timeless’ and that she prefers ‘festive jewel-toned dresses.’” We learn that she “possesses a natural and unpretentious sophistication” and that she “has the grace and beauty of a dancer” whether she’s wearing her “silk faille Moschino jacket,” or the “teal silk Narcisco Rodriguez dress.” On August 23, Us Weekly informs its millions of readers, “Michelle rocked a printed...

    MSNBC's Tamron Hall [file photo] is a big "Us Weekly" fan. Even more disturbing: she believes that guilty pleasure is expiated by her reliance on the New York Times for her news. Hall has been taking Mika Brzezinksi's place on this week's "Morning Joe." This morning's show opened with Joe Scarborough decrying the disparate judicial treatment doled out to Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan. They have received slaps on the wrists, doing virtually no jail time for their drug-fueled escapades, whereas Paris Hilton spent over 20 days in the hoosegow. When Joe asserted that Paris has been walking the straight...
