You've seen the slobbering and heard the wailing over the scandalous ACORN video, the one where the ACORN employee "admits" to killing her husband. It's given certain on air personalities on FOX fits. They've used it mercilessly this week to smear ACORN.
Yeah, that video? They were punk'd
According to Media Matters and Crooks and Liars, both of whom have excellent video of the FOX News talking heads blathering over this hidden camera tape, the ACORN employee pretty much figured out why the people were filming and decided to, as they say in England, "Have them on."
She just kept inventing wilder and wilder claims, all of which FOX ran with without checking. Her husband is alive and well, something according to Media Matters:
"A reporter right out of J-school would have taken the two minutes necessary to call the San Bernardino Police Department and verify Ms. Kaelke's statements. But that never occurred to anyone at Fox News before the network ran with the story. This kind of shameful work raises serious questions about the legitimacy of the entire campaign currently being waged against ACORN."
