CBS is feeling rather outfoxed . . .

Simply Appalling discusses recent gaffs by Fox News showing that conservatives can be rather biased themselves. Fox News evidently posted what they said were quotes of Kerry, only to quietly apologize later when it was discovered that they were made up. I don't know what's worse--Rather's possibly being duped by someone or Fox's outright lying. Of course, I'm getting all of this second-hand. I don't watch TV at all. From the sounds of things, I'm not missing much. From what little I've seen of Fox News, there's less substance and investigative work than one finds talking to the crowd in a local barbershop or bar. The other news stations don't seem to do much better.

P.S. And this just in...

"Paul Schur, a spokesman for the network, said Fox's chief political correspondent Carl Cameron had been disciplined for posting an item on FoxNews.com that included several made-up quotes attributed to Kerry."

The article in question was on the internet. It wasn't on the Fox TV news network.

Was the article on the Fox News website then?
