An F-ing Mistake

A poster at Aaron Barnhart's great TVBarn site was watching KTTV/Fox 11 news... and noticed that the telecast missed a doozy:

On tonight's Fox 11 10 O'Clock news ("Just You Watch"), they did a story on the Jeff Weise school shooting and the alleged connections to white supremacist web sites. They were showing footage of a press conference by the Simon Weisenthal Center, which released a CD-ROM on hate web sites, and one of the sites that the camera picked up had the subtitle of "WHITE FUCKIN POWER" (sic).

Incidentally, they at least did a decent enough job by not displaying the web address of the site in question, but screwed up in editing the b-roll. So the Parents Television Council will complain, right? Especially since it followed the re-airing of "American Idol".
