Here’s something you don’t see every day, or ever for that matter: reporters are citing a story posted on the Fox News website, and they’re not even calling it “Faux News” out of habit.

No, he’s not being sarcastic. We checked.

Twitter was buzzing Wednesday night after reporter Ben Jacobs tweeted that GOP candidate Greg Gianforte had body slammed him and broken his glasses — although the campaign’s official statement didn’t line up at all with the audio recording that was posted soon afterward.

Alicia Acuna of Fox News was there in the room when it happened, though, and her eyewitness account made the incident sound even worse than the audio recording did.

Even more kudos to a Fox News reporter for telling the truth? What next? Props from the New York Times?

It’s refreshing to see people take someone from Fox News seriously, even just for one night. The chair of the Libertarian National Committee couldn’t even score that.
