Major Garrett

Fox News reporter Major Garrett made a major mistake last night when, while Tweeting away during the State of the Union address, he tweeted this:

“To overcome the numbing weight of our politics” and other Obama SOTU excerpts http://bit.ly/d6W

The only problem with that is the URL-shortened link above takes you to a site advertising Las Vegas escorts. See below:

Later, he posted:

I apologize. Bit.ly turned my original link to SOTU excerpts to a soft-porn link. NOT my intention. http://bit.ly/d6WZBu

Right, bit.ly did it. Sorry, that’s not true, and you know it, Major. What happened was that you had an escort site open in another tab and you accidentally copied it to bit.ly to shorten it. Now let’s see, when’s the next time you’re visiting Vegas?
