Fox News: President Obama is Dead! Oops

The airwaves and bloggosphere will be replete with the story of Bin Laden's welcome demise. There is little I can add to the discourse... so I won't - with the exception of this:

Perhaps it was a Freudian-slip or maybe wishful thinking on the part of the Fox News staff; in either way the conservative propaganda network has once again risen to it's usual mediocre journalistic standards. Watch and enjoy:

Details, details. Considering the source, it's an understandable mix-up:-)

Oh, that's priceless!

I've seen the Osama/Obama slips reign over the airwaves...with immediate corrections, of course. Fox though, seems to specialize in this sort of thing.

The news as a vehicle for delivering news, is dead.

I felt the same way when Knobby Kennedy died.

Wasthat a freudian slip Robert ?? :-)

Is there anything about all of this that doesn't, maybe, smell, just a little?

Paul said...

Let the conspiracy theories begin...:-)

To be perfectly honest, as an inhabitant of the sea and a solid citizen of the realm, you have no idea how much I resent those humans dumping trash in my backyard. Osama FIN Laden, indeed. Why not embalm and stuff him in a Tanqueray bottle; then call him Osama GIN Laden. As for that Tonsil Dump character, why not call him Osama TWIN Laden.

And anyone who criticizes the Pres. for bagging the bum should be renamed Osama SPIN Laden.

Oh, Fox News. I expect more from you. And by more I mean less. Very less!

On twitter I got a message Osama killed Obama! Seems texting is a very unreliable source yet ine that goes viral in just a few clicks!!!

:-o !!! I have to confess that I obsessively checked and re-checked my spelling when I posted my last couple of blog post about the assassination of bin Laden. Did not want to make THAT mistake.
