clay feet
 n.pl.— «It’s in this hazy area between genuineness and artifice that Sunrise errs on the side of the real, while the folks on Today continue to expose their clay feet, indifference to their audience, and the fact they are speaking to what some people in the industry refer to as “the unwashed masses.”» —“No sunshine for Today” by Karen Brooks Courier Mail (Australia) Aug. 9, 2006.
