    Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- A CNN correspondent on Monday angrily rejected a report by the Fox network that he and other journalists were used as human shields by Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to prevent a missile attack on his compound.

    The Fox story, labeled "exclusive" and posted on the Fox website Monday, said the presence of news crews from CNN, Reuters and other organizations forced a British aircraft to call off firing seven Storm Shadow missiles at the area that already had been hit.

    I myself find the New York Times is good to cure for constipation, you just have to open the first page, and out comes a grunt that helps.

    The only question is ................

    should the BS be added to The FOX call letters as a prefix? BS-FOX
    or as a suffix? FOX-BS icon_neutral.gif Hmmmmm

    And why? Why would Fauxnews make this story up? How does it fit their narrative to do this?

    When is America going to realize that Fauxnews is just a less funny, more evil version of The Onion?

    I think it's something to pad their "news" when they didn't expend the necessary human resources to send to Libya for a "real" story. It's exclusive alright, just exclusively false.

    who's actually with the Libyan officials"I see him [Fox News' Steve Harrigan] more times at breakfast than I see him out on trips with government officials here," Robertson said.

    Speaking to Greta Van Susteren on Monday night, Griffin acknowledged that a Fox News "security guard" had gone on the tour in Harrigan's place. Harrigan, she said, had stayed in his hotel because he "wanted to stay on the air to provide full coverage." She said that the earlier assertion that no Fox News personnel were present on the tour was "my mistake, and I apologize for the error."
