ABC News: The earth passed through the shadow of the sun

Micheal Silence on brings us this tweet from JimSmith_WATE:

ABC News just said the earth passed through the shadow of the sun this morning, proving once again journalists are not science majors.

You can say that again.

Hat tip to Instapundit, who also posts this from one of his readers:

I bet if Sarah Palin said this, they would immediately know how foolish the statement was.

Well, there’s legions of “journalists” scouring everything she says/does/displays. The “layers of editors” in place in our MSM don’t care so much about the accuracy of their own reporters’ statements.
