Fox news: vigilante edition
It's difficult to determine whether this is a. the dumbest thing I've heard in a while or b. the most dangerous. Maybe you can help decide.
The occupants of the home wrongly fingered as terrorists by Fox host John Loftus could've been killed as a result of this irresponsibility. As it is, they face continued harassment. Chrish explains: "[John Loftus] gave the family's address on the air, saying that a terrorist connected with the July 7 London bombings lived at the address. Directions and satellite photos were briefly available on-line until police intervened and had them taken down."
The harassed family, understandably, would like a public apology and correction. To date -- get this -- they've received only an email from the host.
For his part, Loftus claims that he only wanted to "help local police." John, may we humbly suggest that the next time you have some information, you save yourself the apology email and just send one to the cops? (Newshounds)
