::Clay Aiken Fans Defend Their Man

By Elliott West, Raleigh Chronicle News Editor
Tuesday, July 24, 2007

RALEIGH - Some Clay Aiken fans are crying foul about a news report earlier this month that said their favorite singer had gotten into a fight on an airline flight and they say that the media has left out an important detail.

It was reported on July 7th that on a flight that ended at the Tulsa, Oklahoma airport, Aiken got into an argument with a female passenger.  After investigators interviewed passengers, no charges were filed and everyone went on their way.

However, fans are saying that Aiken has been maligned unfairly in the media over the airborne incident.

Several Clay Aiken fans wrote the Raleigh Chronicle to say that an initial report on the Tulsa World newspaper website contained an important detail that was later omitted.

According to one reader, an earlier report that they say was later edited said that "Apparently, a former 'American Idol' contestant was asleep in his seat and a woman roused him to get him to move his foot, Johnson [of the airport] confirmed. An argument then followed."

The fans claim that the Tulsa newspaper item initially contained that statement in the article.

However, later Associated Press reports do not contain that important piece of the story Clay Aiken fans say and it was sent out on the wire in the edited form.

"Now the entire world is being told the story without all the facts," commented Kendra, a fan of Clay Aiken's.

The fans seem to be upset that it's not being reported that evidently, the woman woke up Clay and initiated the incident.  Some fans believe that the important detail was omitted just to make the story more sensational.   ::
