Greg Mitchell: Fox News VP: If McCain Worker 'Mutilation' Story Is a Hoax His Campaign Is 'Over'
Earlier today, John Moody, executive vice president at Fox News, commented on his blog there that "this incident could become a watershed event in the 11 days before the election. If Ms. Todd's allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.

"If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain's quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting."

It was false and in the words of the Fox VP race the McCain campaign is forever linked to race-baiting.

McCain Campaign Volunteer Admits Alleged Attack Was a Hoax - FOXNews.com Elections
Ethan Eilon, executive director of the College Republicans National Committee, told FOX News Todd was volunteering as a field representative through his organization and that she had taken a year off from her studies at Blinn College to work on the campaign.

Todd received a call from the Republican presidential nominee and has spoken with her family. Barack Obama's local campaign team also issued well-wishes to the Texas resident.

What a bunch of damn race baiting a-holes!


YouTube - McCain Supporter Robbed and Maimed!

This is a FoxNews clip from when the story wasn't a hoax yet-- they go into to the details of the story and then say it all comes on the heels of reports that there will be rioting if Obama loses! Do they have any shame??

(sorry if this is hijacking your thread Tuborg)

Police say they do not believe any other people were involved, and that Todd's friends believed the story about the attack.
