Hello everyone...
Could anyone guide me whether this sentence for the idiom is right or wrong...

"A cock and a bull story"

The accident was not too serious but the media was projecting it as a cock and a bull story.

It is not appropriate in the sentence you give.

The account he gave me of how the accident happened was just a cock and bull story.

A cock and bull story is a lie someone tells that is completely unbelievable.
