Palin Says She Joined Fox News Because of They Are 'Fair and Balanced'

As if we needed another example of how out of touch Sarah Palin is with society, we have this from her interview with Jay Leno earlier this week (h/t Alex Seitz-Wald):

PALIN: I studied journalism, my college degree there in communications. And now I am back there wanting to build some trust back in our media. I think the mainstream media is quite broken and I think there needs to be the fairness, the balance in there — that’s why I joined Fox. Fair and balanced, yes. You know because, Jay, those years a go that I studied journalism it was all about the who, what, when, where, and why, it was not so much the opinion interjected in hard news stories. … As long as there is not the opinion under the guise of hard news stories — I think there needs to be clear differentiation.

There is endless documentation of how Fox News is anything BUT objective and for Palin to state that she joined the organization because they are a positive contributor to the quality of journalism, is laughable on its face.
