Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was the target of a fake news story that claimed she had made some pretty interesting remarks about Santa being white. However, Palin wasn’t having any of it and shot back in her typically awesome way.
According to various outlets, a story published on Newslo claimed that Palin called for the boycotting of the Mall of America in Minnesota because it had hired a black Santa. The story made wild claims about Palin telling the Minneapolis Star Tribune and had a number of things to say … including that “The Holy Book always said Santa Claus was white.”
However, the Associated Press got a hold of the story and, in what Rush Limbaugh would undoubtedly call a random act of journalism, exposed it as a fake.
According to the AP, the Star Tribune never ran that story and Suki Dardarian, the newspaper’s managing editor, stated that none of her reporters had ever spoken with Palin about the mall’s hiring of the black Santa.
If one were to do a quick search in the “About Us” section of Newslo, they would see that the site admits to publishing false news. The site even argues that it helps readers decipher what is true and what is fake by the use of its own fact checker button.
“Newslo is the first hybrid News/Satire platform on the web. Readers come to us for a unique brand of entertainment and information that is enhanced by features like our fact-button, which allows readers to find what is fact and what is satire,” the site read.
Indeed, a quick click on that “fact-button” shows that aside from the first paragraph detailing the debate over black Santa, the whole Sarah Palin story was made up.
Palin shot back on Facebook and linked to the Breitbart article saying, “Dear Democrats, this is what ‘fake news’ actually looks like, and I guarantee you no Trump voter fell for this.”
Sorry Lefties … you can’t win ’em all. Just ask the Hillary Clinton.
