'Fox & Friends' misspells 'spelling bee' while reporting on one

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Mar 11, 2014

"Fox & Friends" is clearly not smarter than a grade schooler as the production misspelled "spelling bee" as "spelling be." Adding to the humor, the show was reporting on a Kansas City spelling bee at the time.

The Fox News program "was about the Jackson County Spelling Bee that had to be extended after seventh-grader Kush Sharma and fifth-grader Sophia Hoffman blew through the word list and 20 additional words selected from a dictionary," reports the New York Daily News. "The bee needed 29 more rounds before Sharma was crowned the winner."
