I BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE! Okay I know I am opening myself up for criticism left and right, but I saw the same thing as well. Oddest of all, I did not even think about it again until I read this post because I quickly dismissed it thinking "well that must have been some kind of mistake or a prankster working the ticker." I am well aware that the human mind can manufacture memories, however I do not think that this is the case here for me. I NEVER watch anything Fox-related, I refuse and put no credibility in it (another reason I dismissed this), but for some reason a little over a week ago I turned on my TV and sat down with some food and began watching and the TV was tuned to Fox News. It drove me crazy and I looked all over for my remote control but did not feel like getting up and finding it as I was already comfortable where I was sitting with my food in my lap. As I was eating I kept glancing up and indeed along the ticker it did say that Osama Bin Laden had been killed.
According to my recollection, they spelled it Osama bin Laden, not Usama as Fox does now. Now, unless I dreamed this recently and it is still imprinted in my mind, I cannot explain why I remember this so vividly now unless it actually happened. I ALSO remember my thought process, that if it was indeed true then certainly they would be covering the story shortly, if not immediately. They didn't, and I finished eating and changed the channel. I feel like SUCH a tool for not remembering this sooner and connecting it to the recent "Bin Laden is dead" story but, as we can all relate, such things happen when you discredit something in your mind. If it was any channel other than Fox News I would probably have thought more of it, but since I don't believe them anyway, it was easy to ignore. I thought, "well, if that's true, surely I would be hearing about it."
Again, I realize that this opens me up to ridicule, but I felt the need to relate MY recollection of this now that my memory has been jarred. There is substance to what Meg is saying. I do not recall the exact date that this happened to me but as I said, it was a little more than a week ago, which is right in the timeline that Meg is specifying. Now go ahead, rip me to shreds.

So the OP could be a disinfo agent working AGAINST tptb? I am a bit confused by your post, but it's refreshing to see somebody who can have skepticism of this thread and intelligently construct different scenarios. Thanks for that.

In fact Meg's tweets appear so innocuous, about kids, some pop culture, etc., that she appears to be an everyday mom with feet on the earth. Precisely the type of account that would be a perfect dis-info agent! Slip in an occasional dis-info tweet, and it appears all the more valid coming from a normal person going about their normal life. (really again no offense OP, just considering all the scenarios).
