    NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- Fox News, which has been criticized for catering to right-wing political viewpoints, apologized for posting phony quotations from Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry on its Web site.

    Carl Cameron, a Fox reporter who covers the Kerry campaign, wrote an item that resembled a news account with made-up Kerry quotes. The item was written in "jest" and was not supposed to be posted on the site, the network said.

    The item posted early Friday read in part:

    "Rallying supporters in Tampa Friday Kerry played up his performance in Thursday night's debate in which many observers agreed the Massachusetts senator outperformed the president.

    " 'Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!' Kerry said Friday ...Women should like me! I do manicures,' Kerry said."

    The item also quoted Kerry as saying of himself and President Bush: "I'm metrosexual -- he's a cowboy."

    The Fox gaffe comes on the heels of a media industry furor that surrounded CBS News and anchor Dan Rather. CBS apologized for airing a flawed report on Bush's National Guard service.

    Fox has spent substantial time on the Rather issue, in a seeming attempt to keep the story alive after it began to fade from view in other media organizations.

    An interesting insight into the FOX reporters mindset I think

    Do you know everything? do you know 3% of everything? Could it be that what you don't believe in is in the other 97%?

    .
    Do you think that cbs are now incabable of acurate reporting?

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    I think that this article displays that they cannot report without spin. It looks like (due to their wording) to me that they wrote this story for a rather weak jab at FOX's coverage of the memo scandal.

    Then why did CBS point out FOX?
