In the usual puff piece about Sen. Edward Kennedy's wife on Good Morning America the other day they claimed that Victoria Reggie Kennedy's father was a former Governor of Louisiana.
Robin Roberts' response to this news was " I didn't know that."
That's because it isn't true. Ed Reggie was a political insider and pretty big stuff during the administration of Edwin Edwards. But he was never Governor.
Don't they look this stuff up? This is Wally Hall level fact checking.
