Rachel Maddow gets suckered by Palin hoax, blames Beck

You can’t make this stuff up. From NewsBusters:

As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Monday got duped by a satirical website quoting from their spoof article about Sarah Palin advocating an attack on Egypt as if it was a serious commentary…

…And that was Maddow’s explanation for getting duped by a satirical website: in her view, conservatives – especially Glenn Beck – are saying all kinds of crazy things. As a result, it’s become difficult for her to know what’s real and what’s a spoof.

It’s hard to know what real and what’s a spoof on MSNBC.
