I'll admit at this point I'm probably a bigger fan of US Weekly than Sarah Palin, but lord is it difficult to believe no reporter or editor over there said, "Hey, maybe we should make sure this insane quote about the Super Bowl halftime show isn't actually from a satire site?" before throwing this supposed Palin gem up on the mag's website as legit:
“Unemployment is at nine percent, yet we have to suffer through a performance by a foreigner with a poor grasp of the English language. If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Aguilera back to wherever it is she’s from and give Amy Smart a call.”
I guess this is the part where I say something about confirmation bias and how deadly it is to logical reasoning?
