Ann Curry forgets to fact-check her graduation address

ann-curry-getty.jpgWe're pretty sure that the "Today" show fact-checks its news stories. The NBC morning show's news anchor, Ann Curry, could've used a little help in that department over the weekend.

Curry delivered a commencement address at Wheaton College in Massachussetts over the weekend, and she listed some of the school's famous alumni: Billy Graham, "60 Minutes" correspondent Lesley Stahl, film director Wes Craven and Todd Beamer, one of the heroes of United Flight 93 on 9/11. Standard graduation stuff, right?

Yeah, there was just one problem: Except for Stahl, all those people graduated from a different Wheaton College. In Illinois.

To her credit, Curry quickly apologized to the Massachussetts Wheaton in a letter.
