Cheating hubby radio ruse: Object lesson or publicity ploy?


Is there a difference between a prank and a hoax? A Washington, D.C., radio host accused of perpetrating the latter insists that there is, claiming he was merely indulging in the former. His critics aren't so sure.

Last week, media domestic and foreign took note of what seemed to be an extraordinary example of marital retribution: A Virginia man was seen standing at a busy intersection wearing a large sign reading "I cheated. This is my punishment." The man, identifying himself as William Taylor, gave an exclusive interview to the host of The Kane Show on 99.5 FM.
