The Fox Nation correction: Just add a question mark

Blog ››› ››› ERIC SCHROECK

Yesterday, Media Matters noted that Fox Nation, along with their Fox & Friends cohorts, ran with a bogus story that a school in central Florida had banned the Christmas colors red and green from classrooms. The school's district spokesperson denied this, telling Media Matters, "There is not a ban on the colors red and green at Heathrow Elementary."

The school later issued a statement -- which (somewhat surprisingly) Fox Nation later added to its original post -- making plainly clear that a report of the school "banning ... red and green is simply not true."

So how did Fox Nation edit its headline to reflect the school's statement?





Yup, Fox Nation simply added a question mark to the end of its headline.

Problem solved, Fox Nation-style.
