... it suddenly occurred to me: What if Fox News sent the same email to my tvbarn address? And there it was, buried in my daily mountain of 200 news alerts and PR. Gmail puts them in a separate folder that I'd never thought to check.
He retrieved the email and posted it on his blog. Here is the email.
So we know Barnhart wasn't lying about getting an email from FOX. Only the email came from another FOX department, not "FOX PR" as he first said, but he did get an email from FOX.
But the real question to me: was Barnhart honest about his claim that FOX "emailed to let me know Glenn Beck will be raising fears tonight..."?
Take a look at the tweet:
Really, Aaron? I'd put the tweet in the smart-aleck category, not the honest reporting category.
If Barnhart had stuck to tweeting the the facts -- instead of tweeting misleading snark -- he wouldn't have found himself quoted as a source by Keith Olberman on one of his anti-Glenn Beck tirades. To be followed by a public response from FOX PR calling Barnhart's honesty into question.
