Hilary Duff, Political Correspondent? (Or: Be Careful When Googling “Barely Legal”)

We just read the (factually incorrect!) headline, “New Fox Show for Hilary Duff” and were horrified to discover the she isn’t, in fact, getting a Fox News show, but is joining the cast of NBC sitcom Barely Legal. It’s not really that scary that she’s going to be on TV again — we’re mostly concerned at how normal we found it that Duff might be the newest addition to Fox’s ace news team.

Duff has proven that she can take a stand against homophobic language, and there’s already a T-shirt announcing her presidential candidacy that’s enough to get you on Fox News, right? Just remember: Joe the Plumber’s newest job title is “War Correspondent.”
