    In the situation as reported in the OP the teacher would have to have been lying to the principal and the principal would have to have assured the superintendent that the teacher was not lying. I would imagine, given the sensationalism caused by Fox, that the superintendent superintendent spoke with the teacher as well. Following that and after the news stories, I can guarantee you that one or more members of the school board have spoken with the superintendent about it. Or it could be as you suggest that there is a concerted effort by all involved to lie about it and blame the child. But, that idea is horse****.

    Now we have an anonymous second source reported by the guy who wrote the original story.

    Could be the teacher lied. Could be the teacher didn't. It is much, much, much less likely that "the school is lying".

    Could be Fox News is lying. It wouldn't be the first time.
    Regardless of the second report, it isn't much less likely that the school is lying given their multiple excuses.
    While it is possible, multiple excuses usually do not come about unless one is trying to cover.

    In addition; You appear to have some irrational bent over Fox. There is a difference in opinion programs and actual News programs.
    Just as there is a difference between being mistaken and purposeful deceit.
    Once you start distinguishing those difference, the irrational bent should correct itself.

    Jefferson was too eccentric to even be racist.

    It compares his action to objective morality as established by modern context. I'm sorry if it doesn't give him a blowjob, but I'm not sure what your objection is. Are you against viewing history in a modern context? That would be idiotic - literally.

    I know of no one who claims slavery never existed, and in fact it exists in the wacky world of islam today.
    And yet, quite a bit recently we see so-called conservatives absolutely flip their **** at the idea of anyone saying the founding fathers or America were anything less than perfect. Apparently, speaking about factual events like the "Trail of Tears" is some attack on our country. Telling the truth, to these people, is wrong because it makes America look bad, so doing so must mean you hate America. Nationalism run amok. Borderline fascism.

    Even Thomas Jefferson knew slavery was morally wrong, he just didn't do anything about it. So if morality is not relative, then the founders were racists.
    According to the modern standard if what racism, everyone is a racist.

    That being said, what about black slave owners? Were they racists, too?
