Fox News: Distorting the Facts (Again) to Score Cheap Points

Leave it to Fox News to make mountains out of molehills, at least when it suits their purposes. 

As it happens, a car in Vice President Joe Biden's motorcade was rear-ended the other day, slightly injuring skater Peggy Fleming.

Biden's motorcade has been involved in two other accidents in recent months as well, which prompted Fox to run this headline:
Biden Motorcades Keep Mowing People Down 
The problem, of course, is that no one was mowed down. In the most recent incident, one of the Veep's vans was hit by another vehicle. Biden was not a fault, nor was the Secret Service. 

It's silly. It's ridiculous. It's Fox News, of course. The story explained here.
