Fox News has retracted a Tuesday story that claimed "an all-time high" for food stamp fraud.
“We reported that back in 2016 $70 [billion] were wasted on food stamp fraud,” Fox News contributor Abby Huntsman said on Friday's "Fox and Friends."
“That was actually incorrect. The latest information from 2009 to 2011 shows the fraud at 1.3 percent, which is approximately $853 million for each of those three years. Nationally food stamp trafficking is on the decline. So sorry about that mistake.”
Okay well I guess it is somewhat of a good sign that Fox is finally starting to take responsibility for some of the bullshit that they put out.
However if you notice they picked one of the most attractive and pleasant people in their news stable to give the apology.
"Let's go ahead and admit we were wrong, but let's distract them with something pretty while we do it."
Personally I would rather see Bill O'Reilly making the apology so that I can despise him and the network for lying in the first place and then mock them for having to apologize.
