Faux News Earns the Label with a Ham Steak Faux Story Reported as News

Check this link, they provide a Faux News clip of their Tuesday reporting of a Lewiston, Maine incident where a school kid put a ham steak on a table where some Somali kids were going to sit down and eat as a joke. A news parody organzation like "The Onion" blew it up in a parody, and Faux News reported the parody as the actual event. Pretty amusing as they assure you and themselves it is true, and that they checked it to make sure it wasn't put out there by "The Onion" or the like.
