Of the 10 trending topics on Twitter right now, seven of them concern Robin Williams. It’s an interesting look at the work people all over the Interwebs associate with the comedic genius, topped by Mrs. Doubtfire. I don’t think it’s his best movie, but I like it enough to tell the difference between Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire and some guy as Mrs. Doubtfire. Unlike Fox News.

As Greta Van Susteren interviewed Larry King about Williams via phone, footage of someone who was definitely not Robin Williams, but looked a whole lot like his character from Mrs. Doubtfire appeared on the screen. The footage was labeled as coming from 20th Century Fox, a company that has some connection to the cable news network, but it most definitely did not. (Via)

That footage comes from “2009 Halloween Costume and dance to Dude Looks Like A Lady,” which to be honest, is still better than Jakob the Liar.

Fox News is so bogus; it doesn't realize what is and what is not appropriate when reporting on the tragic demise of a beloved entertainer. A fake Mrs. Doubtfire clip? Not only is it inappropriate it’s out and out BAD TASTE! What else can one expect from this pathetic TV “news” outlet?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
