WASHINGTON: A senior reporter at US television network Fox has been disciplined for posting a fake article about John Kerry on its website.
The story, which purported to cover Senator Kerry's comments to supporters after last week's debate, said the Democratic challenger highlighted his "metrosexual" qualities.
"Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate", the story by chief political correspondent Carl Cameron said. "Women should like me! I do manicures."
Fox News spokesman Paul Schur said Cameron had been reprimanded over the bogus report, which had been "written in jest and should not have been posted or broadcast".
He said Fox News apologised for the error, "which occurred because of fatigue and bad judgment, not malice".
"This was a stupid mistake and a lapse in judgment, and Carl regrets it."
However, Mr Schur declined to explain how the spoof article appeared on the Fox News website, and said Cameron would continue to report on the campaign.
Fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, is often criticised for a perceived Republican bias.
Fair and Unbiased, my ass.
