Journal Journal: Web Site Jumps Shark 3

It was bound to happen. One of the extreme political fringe websites jumped the shark and way over stepped the bounds of all decency. I am referring to this http://dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/8/30/121350/137/486/580223 diary entry that slanders the current Republican VP nominee, Sarah Palin and her teenage daughter.

Speculation on the site ranges from faked pregnancy/forced adoption to forced pregnancy/shotgun wedding to charges of Republican dirty tricks in planting this non-story.

How does a site recover from a faux pas of epic fail? Will this story die like it should or will it live on as a nebulous conspiracy tale?
