Rolling Stone political writer Matt Taibbi had major wishful thinking Tuesday when he thought DNC superstar Sarah Silverman had promoted his story.
A parody account posing as Silverman — @SaraSilverman — was indeed pushing Taibbi’s story and sounded exactly like something the real comedian might say.
Taibbi was all flattered.
That is, until he learned that this was not the actual Sarah Silverman complimenting his journalism. To his credit, he owned up to the me-ified flub.
