If It Passes the "Presumed" Test, Put it On the Air?

Reported by Melanie - January 21, 2005

During the "Mailing It In" segment today (January 21, 2005) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto, Cavuto used an interesting word when he introduced an email about yesterday's dent-in-the-limo story.

Cavuto said, "And Bennjamyn Scott in Orlando, Florida can't believe I was making such a big deal of the presumed dent in that presidential limo."

COMMENT: Presumed??? Is "presumed" all that's needed to imply, to the whole world, that something strong enough to dent an armored tank hit the President's limo during the inaugural parade yesterday? Presumed? If something passes the "presumed" test it goes on the air? Is "presumed" where Fox sets the bar?

(By the way, here is Bennjamyn Scott's funny email: "Hey Neil, if the limo can take an RPG to its armor, do you really think a snowball would dent it? Maybe your head hit it. Somebody should check your hair for paint chips.")
