'Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, a box of rubbers, a $20 room for an hour on a sesame seed bun to go please'

A Nashville TV reporter had a really bad day at the station:

After about 13 years at WSMV-Channel 4, James Lewis has resigned following a piece in which he reported that Metro cops arrested a McDonald’s employee when the worker sold a Big Mac to a hooker, thus violating a law against giving “nutrition to a prostitute."


Trouble is, he got this morsel of news from an on-line column called "The Fabricator."

He's going into the real estate business now.

Good broadcasters to into real estate. Bad broadcasters go into management.
