I’m pretty sure that Wiesel would not consider himself a winner.

    Hey, anyone that walked away from that one alive is a winner in my book!

    I presume this was some bizarre conflation of “Holocaust survivor” and “Nobel winner” but, sheesh.

    I despise Fox News just as much as any person who uses common sense to think, but even I think it’s possible that some idiot in the control room made an error.

  6. Anella,

    Of course it’s an error, but it’s fun to point them out sometimes. I’ve done the same thing with chyron errors at CNN more than once

    Yea, F’ News are racist losers who do stuff like my boyfriend Keith Olbermann says. Now I need to go change my diaper and pleasure myself to MSNBC. I hope my mom has my mac ‘n’ cheese ready, I’ll just shout up the basement stairs.
