Deaf Viewers Complain to Fox about Sarah Palin Subtitles; College students hold "Palin Parties."

(New York) The non-profit organizations "Accuracy in Translations" complained to Fox News today following Sarah Palin's appearance as a Fox "news" analyst last night.

"Deaf viewers rely on accurate translations to understand what is being communicated," said Holly Krapp, President of AIT. "Last night, no one could understand any of the translations of Palin. They just made no sense whatsoever."

An angry Fox News representative, who declined to be named, said, "There was nothing wrong with the translations!"

Meanwhile, across America college students plan to hold "Palin Parties." A Palin Party is where college students turn on Fox News when Palin is on the air, but turn off the volume and just read the Palin subtitles. "Its hillarious! Much funnier than Conan O'Brien," said Missy Monday a student a Wheaton College. "When you actually read what Palin's saying instead of hear her, it truly makes no sense whatsoever. I mean, its funny to listen to her, but its just crazy to read her subtitles."
