article imageFox News Commentator Jokes About Killing Obama

By Chris V. Thangham     May 26, 2008 in Politics
A Fox News contributor recently said she wished Sen. Barack Obama would be assassinated. Liz Trotta made the joking comment on live TV when she said both Obama and Osama should be "knocked-off."
Fox contributor Liz Trotta gave her political opinions in the weekday show, “America’s Newsroom”. Hillary Clinton raised the assassination issue by pointing out Kennedy's assassination for staying in the race. While everyone condemned her, Fox News seems to be getting away with it.
Liz Trotta was asked to give her opinion about the recent scandal surrounding Clinton’s remarks about the assassination. While live on the air, Trotta said, “And now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, uh Obama. Well, both, if we could." She then laughs.
Based on the video, Trotta implies there is no difference between the two and both should be assassinated. Here is the full segment of the show.
The Kennedy and Washington assassinations brought lot of grief to the U.S., so it's surprising that Fox News treats it as a joke.
The segment was posted to YouTube and broadcast on Fox News on May 25, 2008.
