Fox News provides "fair and balanced" fiction



The Los Angeles Times reports:

"The chief political correspondent for Fox News wrote a fictitious story yesterday referring to John Kerry as a 'metrosexual' who does manicures. The report was posted temporarily on the network's Web site.

In a piece titled 'The Metrosexual and the Cowboy,' correspondent Carl Cameron quoted Kerry telling supporters at a rally in Tampa, Fla.: 'Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!'"

Apparently, the fiction piece ended on the Fox website by mistake, according to Fox representatives.

"We regret the error, which occurred because of fatigue and bad judgment, not malice," said Fox News in a written statement.

If only a similar excuse could be provided for the rest of Fox's election coverage.
