‘I Was Misinformed’ columnist wasn’t informed about The Daily Currant being a satirical site

Here’s The Daily Currant’s satirical piece about Kanye West claiming he has a nicer butt than wife Kim Kardashian. The website points out on its About page that “our stories are purely fictional [but] meant to address real-world issues through satire and often refer and link to real events happening in the world.”

“I Was Misinformed” columnist Joyce Wadler isn’t the only person who’s been fooled by The Daily Currant. I’ve noticed in my Facebook news feed that people are posting the website’s latest Sarah Palin story – “Palin: Send immigrants ‘back across ocean’ to Mexico” – and apparently not realizing it’s a goof.
