Those typos are fair and balanced


Fox News is taking quality to a whole new level this afternoon. (I know, I know, it's my fault for accidentally clicking on their site. I deserve what I get.)

Regardless, congrats to the new Queen Minister!

It would be nice. Hey, a few years ago one of our local affiliates was bought by Fox. So one day you have Robin and Jeff doing a pretty darn good job of delivering the news, and the next day you have the same people ... Robin and Jeff ... screaming sensationalist crap into the news camera. Same…
I had something of an interesting experience this afternoon. I stopped into a local Stop & Shop to pick up a new razor and a few other necessities, and because I only a had a few items I decided to use the self check-out. On my way over someone dropped two boxes of cereal on the ground as I was…
I'm on the road for the weekend, and Internet access will likely be spotty until sometime Monday afternoon. Does that mean Orac has abandoned his readers? O ye of little faith! Of course not! There are scheduled posts in the meantime; that is, assuming that ScienceBlog's post scheduling feature…
There's a fellow who has been posting as an atheist on various sites, and making unusual claims — unusual because I have never heard an atheist say anything like this. If a man wants to make a women his b****, so be it? So what if you don't like it, what if I do? If I want to do something, and…

"may fault", hee hee :-)

Argh Rob, no one will know what you mean now!

- - everyone else, there was a typo in the draft of this post, and because Moveable Type is very s l o o w, the draft was published on the site for about thirty seconds before the final version published. Fairly caught by someone paying very close attention to the Scienceblogs ball - I think Fox News needs you, Rob.

The Kayne reversal! A really clever move by Cameron.

HMQE:"Mr. Cameron, we would like to ask you to head our new government."
Cameron: "Yo, Ma'am, I'm happy for me and I'ma gonna let you finish, but you would be one of the best Prime Minister of all time."
HMQe:"Well, that comes a bit suddenly....but okay, whatever."

The clever thing being that it saves Cameron from having to be Prime Minister himself - I mean, we all know he'd just end up making a giant jackass out of...wait - what? He did become Prime Minister?

Well, drat.

I love how the Lib Dems are just "another liberal party" to Faux.

Not to mention the fact that the liberal party in question has formed a coalition with the torys...

Phillip IV, I have the sinking feeling that your scenario would make the perfect script for a quirky Disney family comedy.

"In a world where Gordon, David and Nick just couldn't play nicely together, Her Majesty had to step in to work Her Magic, and fill 10 Downing Street with one big, happy, nonpartisan Coalition of Love! Coming Next Mother's Day: queen-sized fun for the whole family with. . . QUEEN MINISTER: WHO'S YOUR MONARCH?"

Don't you just love Fox News? It most certainly has a lot of class - all low - but a lot of it nonetheless!!!!! JD Robertson

Later on Faux Newts (who don't get better) mentions that inconvenient fact, with the typical odd spin:

Brown resigned after failing to form a coalition government -- between his left-of-center Labour Party and Nick Clegg's even more left-of-center Liberal Democrats.  …After talks between Brown and Clegg fell apart, Cameron was in the position to form a government with Clegg …

I'm fairly certain that's the first time I've ever heard/read the Lim Dems described as âleftâ of Labour.

Let this be a lesson to you! That's such a high density of dumb packed into so few words that I expect it to form a black hole of fail.

Well, you see, blf, they're both Liberal AND Democrat, which makes them twice as liberal as Labour. It's basic math.
