Fox News Apologizes (Again) for Footage Flub-Up
For the second time in a couple of weeks, Fox News has run the wrong footage to go along with a story about a crowd gathering in support of a conservative cause, apparently mistakenly creating the impression that more people showed up than was the case. On Thursday, the network issued another apology, this time on its “Happening Now” show. –KA

[On Wednesday], FOX News host Gregg Jarrett was talking about Republican Sarah Palin’s book tour and the crowd she is drawing at the start of it – no small turnout, with some 1,500 people lining up early this morning for a chance to get into this evening’s premier book-signing for Going Rogue in Grand Rapids.
“Sarah Palin continuing to draw huge crowds while she’s promoting her brand new book,” FOX’s Jarrett told his viewers. “Take a look at — these are some of the pictures just coming into us… The lines earlier had formed this morning.”
