I feel like this can't possibly be an actual Fox Sports production, despite the broadcaster's words and the mic. It just can't be.

And away with the racism...

I, for one, am shocked, shocked that something on Fox would be considered racist.

But indeed the video is actually a Fox Sports production, and they're deservedly feeling the heat for airing it: http://www.dailycame...rts/ci_18839700

This has got to be a joke... But this has to be a BN record for longest topic title.

Okay so after reading the link TWC posted, it is even worse than being a faux-news joke of fox sports... It's actually Fox Sports trying to be funny by being overtly racist... only fox could green light such a bad idea. Even the comedian acting as a newsman seems uncomfortable.

This is what hapens when one attempts to be satirical without pushing the joke/pun to the absurd, AND not realizing that being the news organization attempting to be satirical has already been criticized as actually being racist.

Well done fox, I hope the Daily Show or Onion picks this up and shows Fox the meaning of satire.

Yup. If you're going to try and do the overt, absurd type humor, you have to rearry, rearry obvious about it.
