Fox News Uses Tina Fey Picture for Sarah Palin Story

Fox News Confuses Tina Fey for Sarah Palin

In a story noting that Sarah Palin is "50-50" on getting into the 2012 presidential race, Fox News included a photo of Tina Fey in the background.

It's true that Fey does an uncanny Palin impersonation, but you'd think Palin's own employer could tell them apart.

Here's an enlarged version of the Tina Fey photo from a Saturday Night Live skit in 2008:

That is great! Please check out “Palin sarah-nades the president”… a political twist on the Paul McCartney “Maybe I’m Amazed” covers contest on YouTube.

I’d much rather have Tina Fey as a president that the miracle moron Palin. (she’s such a moron it’s a miracle she can dress her self. Or can she?

Well that’s Fox News for you. Never checking the reliability of what they report…

Sarah Palin is not an employee of Fox News. If providing commentary made one an employee, I’d be getting over 10 paycheques every two weeks. Nice try, though.

Erm, yes. Fox news is her employer.

“Nice try, though.”

The former Alaska governor, whose book, Going Rogue: An American Life, became a bestseller weeks before it was released and remains No. 2 on the New York Times bestseller list, has signed a multi-year deal to offer her political commentary and analysis across all Fox News platforms, including Fox Business Channel, FoxNews.com and Fox News Radio.

Gee. GOPTV/FOX making a mistake? I don’t believe it. ;)

@Shane: the blurb about her book from early 2010 is hardly relevant.

(9) Hi, there! says:

Karnas, are you from Canada? I like the way you spell “paycheques”!

Oh yeah, and Fox News needs to get their sh*t straight.

It’s only Americans who would spell it any other way than “paycheques”, which IS the correct way.

Bye ;)

Did you know Sarah could act?

The upcoming “Iron Sky” releases April 4th 2012. You didnt know that was Govana Paylin. Yup that aint Stephanie Paul.

She is just sooooo awesome! I cant wait for her to become president.

That’s hilarious. Honestly, for a while I was getting pictures of Tina Fey and Sarah Palin mixed up.

@Reply to Hi, there….There is no right way to spell things globally. It’s different in many countries. Ask a Russian how they spell Paycheck. yes in The US, not sure about the rest of the Americas,( which is a large part of the world), that’s how we spell it. But good effort in trying to be super smart.

I know it’s popular to make fun of Sarah Palin, but I don’t get it. I would be proud to call her Mrs. President. If she didn’t frighten the wrong people, the media would not be so hell-bent on destroying her.
