A testament to the shoddy standards of Fox News via TPM:
Last week Fox News ran a story about how things were going so well in Fallujah that they’ve opened their first KFC franchise to keep the locals hooked up with quality Fried Chicken. They even got ret. Gen. Tommy Franks to comment on the great news. The whole thing sounded a bit iffy to us. So unlike Fox News we decided to ring up KFC World Headquarters to find out if the story was really true.
Afraid not. Things may be going swimmingly in the former insurgent hotspot. But there’s no KFC in town. In fact, KFC tells us they’re now “working with the US Military to warn the troops of this situation”, whatever that means.
The whole story here.
