They All Look Alike To Me...

John Conyers (D-Mich) and William Jefferson (D-Louis) are both old black men who serve in Congress. By all accounts, that's where the similarities end. At least for our "Fair and Balanced" friends at Fox News Channel.

Fox News Channel issued a second on-air apology Wednesday for mistakenly running tape of a different congressman while reporting on the indictment of Rep. William J. Jefferson on bribery charges.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers of Michigan, whose picture aired while Fox anchors talked Monday about Jefferson's indictment, had been unhappy with Fox's apology Tuesday. Both congressmen are black.

Conyers was reportedly upset that Fox's first apology was nonspecific and didn't mention he was the victim.
Fair and Balanced, huh? Riiiiiight.
