Fox's 'Terror Granny' Story Looking Pretty Iffy

Ryan Reilly spent most of the day digging into Fox News' national and local coverage of a purported investigation into the alleged terrorism ties of a wacky 46-year-old grandma in Indiana who converted to Islam and has a propensity for spouting anti-government rhetoric and friending suspected terrorists on Facebook. What Ryan found is best summed up by a spokesman for the Indiana State Police: "I think some of the information Fox reported was kind of taken out of context."
