Fox News: Lying or incompetence?

So, Fox News is at it again. I know you'll be as "shocked! shocked, I tell you!" as I am.

This morning I realized I had probably missed John Kerry's interview with Chris Wallace, but I flipped on Fox News just in case. Well, I had missed the interview, but the folks on the news program (11-11:30 EST) decided to include a little bit about the interview.

Here's the thing, in that brief snippet, the Fox reporters kept referring to Kerry's "joke about the troops." Again: "joke about the troops." Even worse, at at least one point the reporter said "Kerry said...about his ... joke about the troops." (I also thought I saw a gleam of delight in the reporter's face just before she said this.)

Wait a second here. Please go back to the transcript of the interview, and everything Kerry has ever said about this incident. At no time ever has Kerry said that the joke was about anybody but Bush. So to imply that he referred to it as being about the troops....would that be lyng, or incompetence, by Fox News?

I report. You decide.
