Fox News Foul-up

Filed under: Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:55 PM

So much for Fox News being the infallible news source that GOP Coggies portray it as being.

Here we’ve got them reporting that “Russian jets circled US territory of Guam” –


Original article here

The article says that:

The Air Force confirms that two Russian bombers on Tuesday circled the U.S. island territory of Guam, prompting U.S. jets to scramble and respond.

Two U.S. Air Force F-15 fighter aircraft, operating out of Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, intercepted the Russian Tu-95 bomber aircraft, which left in a northbound direction, said military spokeswoman Capt. Kim Bender.

Except there’s one mistake – one that Fox News’ proofreaders and editors should have caught:

The article title says Guam was buzzed by “Russian jets,” yet the Tu-95 Bear uses turboprop engines – the spinning props are plainly visible in the picture above.

Thanks to “Laughing_Wolf” at Blackfive.net for the tip-off!
