Notice anything wrong with this otherwise normal screen grab from FOX News on Sunday?

If you look closely, they picture the chose for political celebrity Sarah Palin is about as accurate as the former Alaska governor’s historical re-telling of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride.

Whether it’s due to the journalism industry’s overreliance on lesser-salaried staffers to do the former work of experienced producers or just a one-time oversight by a crack news team that would never put Egypt on a map between Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia or show President Obama when talking about the DC sniper, FOX News put up a picture of Tina Fey as Palin instead of the real deal. Here’s the video:

Perhaps it’s possible that a FOX higher-up asked for an intelligent, poised, good-for-America shot of Palin and a low-level production assistant thought this was the right answer.
