Fake news (continued)

Los Angeles Times corrections:

Joel Stein — Stein's Dec. 5 column said a photo showed President Bush holding a fake Thanksgiving turkey during his 2003 visit to U.S. troops in Iraq. The turkey he was holding was real. Also, the name of Nicole Richie, co—star of "The Simple Life," was misspelled as Ritchie.

This myth/story made the rounds of the mainstream press. The only one holding a fake turkey recently was Mrs. Teresa Heinz Kerry.
