Ah-ha! Foiled again, Sarah Palin!
The former Governor recently lost her patience with The Wall Street Journal writer Sudeep Reddy when he claimed that she didn't get her facts right regarding the price of groceries during a speech she gave, and she responded via Facebook by referencing an article in his newspaper that she claimed said quite the opposite!
However, although no one can deny now that Sarah Palin can read, Reddy has responded to HER response with proof that she just can't read very well!
Reddy proved via Twitter that Palin actually MISREAD the aforementioned Wall Street Journal article regarding grocery prices, which says in its first sentence that it's been "the tamest year of food pricing in nearly two decades."
He also re-tweeted Ryan Chittum, of the Columbia Journalism Review, who wrote:
Palin has a journalism degree, so I'm guessing she knows what an ethical no-no it is to misquote somebody like that. It ought to be awfully hard for her to get on her pedestal and condemn the media when she can't even quote somebody honestly. How about to make it up to Reddy, Palin lets a real reporter like him fly out to Wasilla to interview her for once instead of going to her house folks at Fox News?
Reddy then commented on her Facebook post, and wrote:
Weak demand, high unemployment and thrifty shoppers have led retailers to keep many prices from rising despite the rising cost of some commodities, including coffee and sugar. … Critics of the Fed's quantitative easing policy are focused primarily on concerns about potential future inflation.
And - touché!
Do U need some ice for that burn, Miz Palin? Rebuttal? Please??
