Sarah Palin wins "Misinformer of the Year" award

This just in! Media Matters for America has chosen Sarah Palin, "former half-term governor, current Fox News contributor and prolific Facebook user," as the winner of its "Misinformer of the Year" award.

"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."

From Media Matters:

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.
