While everyone is reveling in the news that Osama Bin Laden has been killed and that the world for at least now seems to be a safer and better place, Fox News is back to its old tricks of trying to play Jedi mind tricks with the president.
Peep the screen grab below.
Yes, boys and girls, that’s a typo. A huge typo. A huge typo expecially considering that the demise of Osama Bin Laden is easily the biggest news story of the year, even bigger than the wedding of the century between Prince Charles and Kate Middleton that just took place last Friday. To have an inaccurate headline for a story of this magnitude is totally reckless for all of those involved.
FOX40 issued a weak apology, but not before they defended its mistake by pointing out how easily it could be made and that other news organizations made similar mistakes, including CNN.
If this weren’t a fox news affiliate and if the “B” and the “S” keys were a little bit closer on the keyboard, we might believe that this was an honest mistake. We might. Why not? Everyone’s entitled to a mistake. It’s not like Fox News has never done this before.
Here’s a clip of another Fox News affiliate’s news anchor proclaiming that President Obama is dead instead of saying Osama Bin Laden.
