Question: When does a $10 million trip cost $2 billion? Answer: When Fox News is involved

Creative Commons License photo credit: TheTruthAboutGlenn Beck on Fox News has thrown out the figure of “$2 billion” as the cost of Obama’s trip to Asia.

Based on past similar trips, it would seem that $10 million is a reasonable estimate of the cost – double it to $20 million for insurance purposes.

But even then, Fox News have put a figure out there which is one hundred times as much as a relatively wild estimate.

Brilliant.

CNN has the details.
