Schwarzenegger 'Destroy The Moon' Quotes - A Hoax

A leading American political commentator has apologised to ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER after alleging the California Governor wanted to destroy the moon.

Former congressman JOE SCARBOROUGH claimed on TV last month (APR05) the former movie star had jokingly suggested women would not suffer from pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) if there was no moon.

Scarborough told viewers of MSNBC cable news network Schwarzenegger had said, "If we get rid of the moon, women, those menstrual cycles are governed by the moon, will not get PMS. They will stop bitching and whining."

The commentator then attacked the actor's insensitivity live on air on 25 April (05).

But the original quotes were made on shock jock HOWARD STERN's radio show, by a Schwarzenegger impersonator - and staff at the Governors office were quick to point out the error.

Scarborough now concedes he made "a terrible mistake" and had apologised on air to viewers and Schwarzenegger.

He says, "By quoting erroneous information from that (newspaper) article, without checking it out ourselves, we, too, got pulled into that hoax."
