    I'm MetroSexual - He's A Cowboy

    Greetings All:

    Fox news at its best. Talk about a lack of fact checking! When are people going to start officially labling Fox News the tabloid TV that it really is?

    As reported by News.com

    It may not rank up there with CBS's Memogate, but Fox News stepped into some cow pie Friday when it posted a report on a John Kerry speech in which the presidential candidate apparently boasts that his cuticles looked great during Thursday's night debate with President Bush.

    According to the story that was posted on the front page of Fox News' Web site, Kerry told supporters in Tampa, "Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!" The Massachusetts Senator then allegedly added: "It's about the Supreme Court. Women should like me! I do manicures," and "I'm metrosexual--he's a cowboy."

    .............

    Fox News later posted a mea culpa that explained the source of the story. "Earlier Friday, FOXNews.com posted an item purporting to contain quotations from Kerry. The item was based on a reporter's partial script that had been written in jest and should not have been posted or broadcast. We regret the error, which occurred because of fatigue and bad judgment, not malice."

    I don't see what is bad about it. A guy thinks his cuticals looked great, big woop. But since it was not factual the guy should be tossed over to ABC.

    Heh heh, totally! I typically am rather fond of Fox News, but there's no denying that that was one pretty embarassing screw up on their part.

    Maybe they got it as a hot tip from Dan Rather over at CBS

    If that was the case they would have defended the statements for a week then apologized, not for what they did, but for who they got it from.

    I find that hard to believe...not that I don't believe you, just that I can't believe no one lost their job over either of those. I mean come on....the "real world" equivalent of that would be "accidentally" putting a mouse in someone's Whopper at Burger King.
