Just what will those loveable Mancunians get up to next? From Fox News. Now changed.

To them, The Beatles are at the outer limits of their knowledge. They’ll have heard of them, sure. But they’ll mean close to zero to them. And knowing where they came from? Forget it. And that’s the way it should be. Move on. November 16, 2010 at 9:05 pm Robin November 16, 2010 Quite right. We don’t want piffling facts getting in the way of shit interns’ rewriting time. November 16, 2010 at 10:44 pm Chris Coals November 17, 2010 I thought the Beatles were from Linverton? November 17, 2010 at 12:01 am Mike November 17, 2010 Bad Times. November 17, 2010 at 12:32 pm Rachel November 21, 2010 I noticed that the byline was actually The Wall Street Journal, so really, they’re to blame. Husband then points out, ‘aren’t they all one in the same now?’ Bugger. Thanks Rupert, thanks a lot. November 21, 2010 at 6:53 pm Robin November 21, 2010 Indeed. All hail Newscorps. Long live the new flesh November 21, 2010 at 7:22 pm Sir Giles Gilbert Snot November 28, 2010 If you’ve heard of The Beatles, then you know that they’re from Liverpool! Their home city is an intrinsic part of their character and their story. You know it. I know it. That’s an ‘inaccuracy’ that’s worthy of the National Enquirer. If a guy at the Wall Street Journal thinks that The Beatles are from Manchester then he probably also thinks that Scotland is in England! Need to GET OUT MORE, mate. There’s a big, beautiful, amazing world beyond the shores of America. Your missing out. November 28, 2010 at 1:09 am Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply. You must be logged in to post a comment.
