沙拉裴林準備2012年選總統?Is Sarah Palin Gunning for 2012?

Here is another car-crash of journalism from NMA news.  Just from watching the video you will actually know what they are talking about, as it is amusing to read the English “jokes” left in (teabaggers, the news ticker) but it’s actually interesting to read and listen to the Chinese text to see how much they have gotten wrong in simplifying this news story.  For example, this news source makes it seem like Palin is some kind of internet star like Justin Bieber and not the creation of an organized right-wing conglomerate, as though she was just lucky in getting involved with Fox and not directly involved herself.

It’s upsetting to see news so distorted and simplified in this ocean of mediocrity and dispassion, but it’s funny to finally see Palin snipe at galloping bears from a helicopter piloted by John McCain and mud wrestle Barack Obama in a bikini.

I know NMA News has one about Apple and Steve Jobs wearing a Darth Vader costume, but I didn’t translate that one because there’s no slave Leia outfit anywhere to be seen.  NMA, you’re slipping in your exploitation!
