"SuperTuesdayNews.com [is] mean for the sake of the joke. This would place them in danger of the fire of Hell."

The Palin/Aguilera Controversy
On February 7, 2011, SuperTuesdayNews published the article Palin says she'd deport Aguilera for botching national anthem (we also re-published the full article on the comedy section of Current.com). Within hours, it became the highest-rated comedy post on Current. Two days later, USMagazine.com reported on Sarah Palin's fictitious comments as fact. Though the story was quickly yanked from their site, Gossip Cop reported the error. On February 10, the real Palin gave an interview to Us Weekly, claiming that contrary to our satire, she had defended Christina Aguilera after her National Anthem flub at the Super Bowl.
"I was telling my kids right after her national anthem issue blew up that people needed to lay off her mistake," said Palin. "And then to read to that I condemned her?"
When the Newsfeed column on Time.com made a reference to our article, Palin shot off an angry email to Time demanding they apologize to her, Aguilera and Sean Hannity, who we referenced in the story. To our knowledge, Palin's demand for those apologies remains unanswered.
The scandal also caught the attention of Rush Limbaugh, who quoted the article on the air (clip below). It was also reported on by The Huffington Post and Politico.
SuperTuesdayNews is a satirical website. We use invented names for our stories, except in cases where public figures are being satirized.
