Politirazzi

Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Unbelievable what you'll (I'll) believe

There were enough dirty rumors floating around this election season to last Politirazzi several lifetimes. Though no one was gullible enough to believe them all, some were pretty ... believable. In the vein of Ashton Kutcher's "Punk'd" spinoff that lured paparazzi with faux celebrity news, the New York Times has uncovered a faux blogger.

He's the one who sparked the Palin-doesn't-know-Africa-is-a-continent rumor. It certainly caught on. Blame that info-hungry blogosphere. Curse you, info-hungry blogosphere.
