<http://lists.extropy.org/mailman/listinfo.cgi/extropy-chat>Wow, when I
started watching I assumed the news anchor and the guest were making fun of
the tweet, but no, they thought it was making a good point! Anybody can
have a bad brain fart, OK maybe not quite that bad but pretty bad, however
there were 2 of them and neither noticed how dumb it was, and they weren't
seeing it for the first time. Maybe the camera guys did spot the error but
thought it would be more fun to let them go ahead and make fools of

Did they ever make a retraction?
