Lying Sarah Palin Crowned “Misinformer of the Year”

MediaMattershas released their winner for the Misinformer of the Year award and, yes, it's Fox News' favorite reality TV star... Sarah Palin. Her credentials:

This year, Palin stood out for her sheer ability to dominate our national conversation and draw the attention of the entire news media to her factually challenged claims and vicious attacks. She has blurred the line completely between media figure and political activist.

From spreading lies about "death panels" to cropping Obama's comments about "American exceptionalism," from her comfortable perch at Fox News to her self-promoting books and reality show, Palin has truly broken new ground in misinformation.

But for more hard evidence (and an awesome, movie-voiced sardonic narrator) check out their honorary Misinformer of the Year video, complete with clips of her many, many infractions. For a person so heralded for her librarian chic... sure seems like she's never stepped foot in a library. But as we see here, it's not just about stupidity... it's about total evil.
