Fox Issues Apology For Fraudulent Reporting On Food Stamp Fraud
After being called out by the Department of Agriculture, the Washington Post and Mother Jones for using fake statistics as an excuse to "ask" if the food stamp program should be abolished, Fox & Friends host Abby Huntsman apologized today.
Today, three days after the original report, Huntsman announced this "update":
"The latest information from 2009 to 2011 shows the fraud at 1.3%, which is approximately $853 million for each of those three years, and nationally food-stamp trafficking is on the decline. So sorry about that mistake."
