Palin Parody Mistaken for News: “Invade the Czech Republic?” Not quite

April 24, 2013

Not so fast, idiots.

Sarah Palin has said many controversial things in her life — but did John McCain’s running mate really call for the invasion of the Czech Republic?

No, but a leading eastern European weekly wrote that she did — mistaking a satirical article written about Palin as fact.

“Let’s burn Prague: Sarah Palin Calls for the Invasion of the Czech Republic” screamed a headline in Wprost, one of Poland’s top news publications.

Wprost later yanked the article from its website after readers began questioning its authenticity on Facebook, the journalism blog JimRomenesko reported.

    What are those “many controversial things” that Sarah Palin have said? I remember her only speaking the truth, but the truth is controversial nowadays.
