Fox Reports Parody Story As Actual News

Reported by Donna - April 27, 2007 -

On Tuesday, April 24th, Fox and Friends aired a story over approximately 8 times that wasn't a real news story. It was a parody news story from a publication similar to the Onion.

Thanks to Think Progress for catching this.

The story was supposedly considered a 'hate crime' because students in a school had placed a ham sandwich next to Muslim students in order to insult them.

Comments: Leave it to Fox & Friends to not properly vet their story before running it. Thanks to several of our readers who alerted us to this story.
