Intern go the sack over it as well. What I'm amazed by is no one checked the facts after the intern. On a pretty big news story like this, you think someone would double check just to make sure there were minimal screw ups.
But 'Murica.... The crank that shit through as 'news' and worry about it later. :roll:
