SCOTT: All right. Also worth noting that CNN leading up to the State of the Union, ran the pursuit and the climactic end to that whole case on its headline news channel rather than the State of the Union.
Did you hear about Sarah Palin's new job? That's coming up on "News Watch."
SCOTT: Here is some big news reported by the Daily Current. Sarah Palin has joined Al-Jazeera America. You know the Qatarian news network that paid Al Gore a boatload of money for his Current TV. The article reveals that Palin signed a multimillion dollar deal to host her own shows. That story was then picked up by Washington Post blogger, Suzy Parker, with the headline, "Sarah Palin Tries to Stay Relevant" and quoting Palin saying she did the deal because Al-Jazeera reaches millions of devoutly religious people who don't watch CBS or CNN.
The problem is the article is fake, a bogus story dreamed up by the satirical geniuses of the Daily Current and The Washington Post bought it hook, line, and sinker. And, of course, the former Alaska governor fired back with this. "Hey Washington Post, I'm having coffee with Elvis this week. He works at the Mocha Moose in Wasilla."
SCOTT: The Washington Post eventually corrected its mistake.
That's a wrap on "News Watch" this week. Thanks to Judy Miller, Jim Pinkerton, Kellen -- Cal Thomas and Kirsten Powers. See you next week.
