You don’t even need to wait until tonight’s Daily Show for this one, as it’s just too good to not talk about here. The Weekly World News, which most know is a satirical news site, reported that the LAPD bought 10,000 jetpacks at a price tag of $100,000 each. Funny stuff, but not something people would take as fact, right? Wrong.
Fox and Friends picked up the story, and were outraged that the broke state would be spending um, a BILLION dollars on jetpacks. And one of the anchors was concerned that they might fly into helicopters and stuff. You have to be ****ing kidding me.
Later Fox corrected the story but the damage was done. As if they care about credibility on Fox and Friends, but whatever. To see a video of the debacle, go here.
