Scozzafava drops out and endorses Hoffman!!!

Or … well, maybe she endorsed Democrat Bill Owens!!!

Either way it’s great news for Hoffman …

This was pretty classic even for Fox. Fox News managed to go almost two days reporting that Dede Scozzafava had dropped out to help Doug Hoffman beat Democrat Bill Owens. And then they went as far as to report that Scozzafava had endorsed Hoffman. This despite the fact there was no evidence for either and ample evidence that Scozzafava was privately supporting Owens.

Watch Fox News’ wishful thinking getting the better of it live on TV.
