Fox News quotes Obama (incorrectly of course)

The problem here is that some newspaper people are actually watching Fox News:

The Washington Post has corrected its article that included an apparently fabricated quote by President Obama.

The initial version of the article quoted Obama as saying, “unlike some people, I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth.” TPM reported earlier today that the first three words were not spoken by Obama – they were apparently concocted by Steve Doocy of Fox News, who portrayed the remark as a jab against Mitt Romney. Those three words have been removed from the Post article.

The updated Post article includes this note at the top: “An earlier version of this post incorrectly quoted President Obama’s reference to not being born with a silver spoon in his mouth. This version has been corrected.”

When you quote an idiot, you end up looking like an idiot.
