The chief political correspondent for "Fox News" wrote a fictitious story Friday referring to Sen. John F. Kerry as a "metrosexual" who does manicures that was temporarily posted on the network's website.
In a piece titled "The Metrosexual and the Cowboy," correspondent Carl Cameron quoted Kerry as telling supporters at a rally in Tampa, Fla., "Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!"
At another point, Cameron quoted Kerry as saying, "I'm metrosexual -- he's a cowboy." Metrosexual refers to young fashion-savvy urban men.
"Fox News" said the piece was a joke that accidentally ended up on the website for a period of time Friday. Later in the day, the website posted an editor's note apologizing for the piece.
