The Children's News Network

Since Fox News wrongly identified a La Habra home as that of a terrorist, its five- member family has faced an angry backlash.
Satellite photos of the house and directions to the residence were posted online. The Voricks told police, who arranged for the content to be taken down. Someone even removed the street sign where the Voricks live to provide some protection.

Still, it has not been easy.

A driver yelled a profanity at the family and called them terrorists as they barbecued on their patio Aug. 14. Some drivers have stopped and photographed the house, Randy Vorick said.

Last weekend, someone spray-painted "Terrist" on their home. [Yep, it's a Fox viewer alright. Or maybe Bush himself?] Police, who have regularly patrolled their house since the day after the broadcast, now station a squad car across the street.

Randy, a restaurant manager, and Ronnell, a manager at a staffing agency, have been married 19 years and met as teenagers when they worked at a local McDonald's.
I'm sure Fox couldn't care less. This is only the latest in a long line of irresponsible, inaccurate and childish stuff they've been guilty of.

What do you expect from a news agency that requires the women to wear short skirts, dye their hair blonde and act subservient to the male anchors on the program?

Real female journalists like - hmmm - I think Debra Noville recently - run away as fast as they can if they do come to the Fox studio and try to work a career.

I could never see anyone like Diane Sawyer or a woman of her caliber wanting to work at such an awfully produced news show. Fox is the National Enquirer of news networks.

In addition to being blonde and leggy, it also helps if you have massive facial cosmetic surgery evidently. Ask Greta. She had to surgically alter her entire face in order to get a gig on Fox.
