WASILLA, Alaska, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin posted a list of President Obama's misstatements on Facebook in response to media coverage of her recent Korea confusion.

The 2008 Republican nominee for vice president posted the list of Obama gaffes to her Facebook page after widespread media coverage of her reference to "our North Korean allies" on conservative pundit Glenn Beck's radio program, The Washington Post reported Friday.

The Facebook post, titled "A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 states," was topped by Obama's one-time reference to there being 57 states in the union and includes YouTube links for all gaffes listed in the post.

"Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didn't have enough time to do one for Joe Biden)," Palin wrote. "Obviously, I would have been ... impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue."

Beck corrected Palin's on-air mistake moments later, and she later made correct references to South Korea being an ally of the United States.

"The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us," Palin wrote. "If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Beck's radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime."
