Hats off to our friends at Media Matters for catching this one. By "lamestream media," did Palin mean Fox News?:

On last night's Hannity, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin did what she does best-complain about the "lamestream media throughout our country." This time, the media's "lame[ness]" was revealed through their coverage of Arizona's new controversial immigration law. Palin sniffed: "One of the media outlets the other day just-was killing me on this one, Sean, where they had a caption across their screen that said Arizona law will make it illegal to be an illegal immigrant? Some bizarre type of headline like that where it was just this illustration that they just don't get it."

As they noted, unfortunately that "lamestream media" program she was talking about is Fox & Friends. Looks like Sarah McWordSalad stepped in it again.
