In an unexpected move, Fox News also carried the story, exactly as written by Associated Press. Which suggests to me that either a) Fox has realized how embarassing this whole thing has been for them and feels that running the story is less embarassing than not running the story, or b) Fox News doesn’t have anyone reading these stories when they come off the wire.
