WTF? Fox News Anchor says “Keep Marrying Other Species” (VIDEO)

Those guys over at FOX never cease to amaze. What is priceless is the look on the female host when he says this we “keep marrying other species”.

NEW YORK (CNN) — The chairman of the New York Post, Rupert Murdoch, personally apologized Tuesday for an editorial cartoon published by the newspaper that drew charges of racism

“Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted,” said the statement from Murdoch, who is also chairman and chief executive of News Corporation, which owns the paper.

“I can assure you — without a doubt — that the only intent of that cartoon was to mock a badly written piece of legislation.

“It was not meant to be racist, but unfortunately, it was interpreted by many as such. We all hold the readers of the New York Post in high regard, and I promise you that we will seek to be more attuned to the sensitivities of our community.”

The cartoon by Sean Delonas referenced the mauling of a Connecticut woman by a chimpanzee who was later shot and killed by police. In the caption, one of the officers says, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”

The cartoon was published on Wednesday, a day after President Obama signed the stimulus bill.

The Post issued a statement the following day, apologizing but noting that the cartoon was meant to mock what it called an “ineptly written” stimulus bill. Continue reading
