Fox News Uses Picture Of Tina Fey During Story About Sarah Palin

Whoever was in charge of background graphics at Fox News apparently confused Fox News employee Sarah Palin with her doppelganger:

The photo behind the post is clearly Tina Fey during one of her SNL sketches:

Apparently, Fox can’t tell them apart either.

    It should be easy to tell them apart.

    One makes up comedic stories to entertain her faithful followers.

    The other one is Tina Fey.

    But WeinerGate is too trivial a story to mention.

    So a giant media company doesn’t know the difference between a comedian and one of their own on-air employees? That’s just sad.

    I for one don’t buy that this was a mistake. This sort of thing has happened before at Fox resulting in this memo:

    Effective immediately, there is zero tolerance for on-screen errors. Mistakes by any member of the show team that end up on air may result in immediate disciplinary action against those who played significant roles in the “mistake chain,” and those who supervise them. That may include warning letters to personnel files, suspensions, and other possible actions up to and including termination, and this will all obviously play a role in performance reviews.
