    Well, to be fair, I think this was an honest mistake by the news station but it could have been avoided if they had taken the time to look at and listen to more than 10 seconds of footage. I do agree that it does sound like the rally leader is saying "So kill a cop" a few times but that is due more to poor pronunciation.

    It was Fox, what do you expect? I am just surprised there were no palm trees.

    I should clarify - this was local news in Baltimore. It's affiliated with the Fox Network. While both owned by NewsCorp, The Fox Network is not the same as Fox News. At best, they are sister networks. We really can't blame the Fox News network for something a local affiliate did.

    Sure we can. They know what the home office expects.

    I never would have expected this from good 'ol FOX. :p

    Well FOX blames Obama and liberals for everything under the sun, so it's safe to blame FOX News for this.

    Yeah, sure, a "mistake". Disgusting. Either that or they're incompetent irresponsible hacks. Either works for me.
