Icon102 Myth Watch

The myth: A Jay Leno essay, widely distributed online, calls Americans "the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen." It goes on to praise President Bush, blame the media for wallowing in bad news and urge citizens to thank "the good Lord we live here."

Military

The myth: Genial kids' show host Fred Rogers was a Navy Seal during the Vietnam War, with more than 25 confirmed kills. He wore his trademark long-sleeved sweaters to hide his arm tattoos.
