Clay Aiken's foot

Now I know they're big but who would have thought they were big enough to grab headlines.

As first reported by the staff at Tulsa World

"Apparently, a former "American Idol" contestant was asleep in his seat and a woman roused him to get him to move his foot, Johnson confirmed. An argument then followed."

but then later the "Tulsa World Staff" went back and removed that paragraph. Why? Isn't beating up on a sleeping passenger juicy enough? Yeah, it sounds so much better to make it look like Clay Aiken was responsible for the altercation. Of course all 156 news articles picked up the edited version that doesn't include the fact the guy was asleep when the woman started attacking him. Too bad there are eye-witness accounts with signed FBI statements attesting to the fact that a woman attacked a sleeping passenger.

Eye witness account:
"An eye witness told us exactly what happened and he was asleep…he’s a tall guy and his foot accidentally touched her armrest…He didnt even hear her talking to him until she began screaming at him, at which point he pulled up his visor and she started swinging… she hit him 3 or 4 times and being the gentleman that he is he did not swing back……He was not hurt……but man was he pissed……one of our other Oklahoma fans was sitting across the aisle from him and was a also an eye witness to this woman’s personal attack . "
With journalism like this it makes it very difficult to know what is truth and what is not. But then it's not the first time the public has been lied to. Weapons of Mass Destruction anyone? Y'all remember that, right?

Anyhow, Clay was on stage in Tulsa Saturday night joking about getting "beat up".
