    Palin Gives Time A Few Minutes of Her Time About Its False 'Reporting'

    The media is so sure that only the worst about Palin could possibly be true that false stories, out right lies, and even comedy bits are constantly presented as actual news. Time Magazine is the latest to fall into that trap by reporting a satirical Internet posting about Sarah Palin as hard news. It all just goes to prove that Sarah Palin lives in the heads of the
    Old Media and it must be awfully cramped up there.

    Last week on Time Mag's Celebrity Newsfeed, Nick Carbone reported satire as fact only to make a "correction" days later. Carbone had fallen for a "tongue-in-cheek" Internet posting that joked that in an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity Palin said she wanted to deport Christina Aguilera for screwing up the National Anthem at the opening of the Superbowl.

    Time's Carbone was outraged by this.

    They didn't "fall" into anything. "Old Media" only pretends to have integrity and fully intends to asassinate the character of anyone who stands against the Marxist agenda with slander and libel if necessary if they can get away with it.

    They simply overestimated their chances, that's all.

    NOT that anyone on baptistboard.com understands satire or any other literary form more complex than "See Dick run up the hill. See Jane run after Dick."

    Ever tire of playing the troll?

    BTW - shouldn't you have learned how to use the "quote" function by now?

    I don't care to use the quote function.

    I must admit that there is some symmetry in your posts being as unreadable in format as they are in content. :laugh:

    Except for you of course Bill.

    Besides, if Jane was really a Christians she would never run after Dick. Or allow herself to take a position of authority over him.

    And we are the ones you say don't understand satire?

    Not to mention the satirical name chosen for the one Jane purportedly chases after...
