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".

It's a pretty sad commentary on journalisim when something like this, more particualrly when
incorrectly reported, is picked up by no less than 455 on-line articles and is 'in the news' on tv.

Where are the reports of how fantastic Clay's concert was and how much his audience enjoyed it?

Where are the reports of fans standing quietly in line to be greeted by him after the show?

Where are the reports of $5,000.00 raised for BAF by fans at the pre-party for the show?

Guess that type of 'news' isn't 'juicy' enough.

Makes me angry as hell!! After all the crap thrown at Clay these last few years, I no longer believe ANYTHING written about any celebrities. The American 'media' makes me sick!

I, too would like to know WHY the legitimate media would even bother to report a non-story and add it to their frenzied attacks on Clay with total disregard for even attempting to get the real story. They all should know by now that Clay's piece of shit TC will go with the "No Comment" or ignore them completely if news folk try to confirm. How come it takes Professionals(?) more than 24 hours to get the correct scoop directly from Clay when it takes us 15 minutes to find what REALLY happened.

Perhaps the fans should form a new company to manage Clay's appearances and his PR. We could damn sure do a better job.

The lady nearly was indicted, I heard Clay could have pressed charges against her but again being the gentleman he is, he did not.
