    "... Fox News host Anna Kooiman fell prey to a false report from a parody site, which claimed that President Obama had offered to keep the International Museum of Muslim Cultures open with cash from his own pocket..."

    She puts her foot in her mouth at 1:54 in the video.

    I seriously doubt that she gathers her own material. Most hosts are briefed and fed this stuff through monitors.

    O'Reilly's producers are really bad. They are always behind on the news. But the worst one of all has to be Bob Beckel. He constantly spouts off wrong information.

    Fox was fooled by a parody that didn't look like one; nationalreport.net seems prone to have realistic "news". They had one parody that looked real about Hilary having a brain tumor. The only thing that gave it away, aside from not being on the MSM, is that they said the brain tumor was found during a colonoscopy.

    Yeah, I thought so too.
    There is a rumor that Boehner was found to have brain cancer during a vasectomy.

    It just shows how biased Fox News is

    The story is ludicrous but because it plays to their tea party agenda they swallowed it wholesale

    The only people more cretinous than the staff at Fox News are those who believe it to be an impartial news station

    I saw this one on Jon Stewart.
    It goes to show that you shouldn't believe anything you see or hear until it's been confirmed.

    Yeah. I saw that too. Jon was man enough to admit it shortly after and made a sincere apology.
