Think those Double Stuf Oreos are really double-stuffed? Well think again. A New York high school math class found the cookies don't really live up to their name. Dan Anderson, a math teacher from Queensbury, N.Y., assigned his students an experiment to see whether Oreo Double Stuf Cookies contain twice as much creme filling as their original counterparts. After weighing and measuring, the students concluded that Double Stuf Oreos contain only 1.86 times as much filling.

Shepard Smith, longtime host of the nightly "Fox Report," is Fox News Channel's No. 1 anchor. That's thanks in part to his mix of folksy accessibility and anchor-worthy gravitas, which have earned him a perch at Politico.com, where his news clips are regularly featured in a regular column, the Daily Shep.

Why is Smith trumpeting a local accident as his third major story, before the FBI's blunders in failing to detect the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers? "Good pictures, and kids are involved," he says. They call him the anti-anchor here in the Fox News building, the sometimes-smirking man from Holly Springs, Miss.

Shepard Smith, the news anchor with the fastest Mississippi drawl on television, has been a rising star in cable news this year: The Fox News Channel personality has the top-rated newscast (as opposed to talk show), and in October and November his "Fox Report" passed CNN's Larry King to take the No. 3 spot overall. He's ahead so far this month too. But there's always room for more viewers.
