Fox News Doesn’t Like Blog People
Update 3: After a few emails with Alice Kalthoff I elected to pull the embed code from my site. The exchanges were pleasant, after all, the genie is out of the bottle, so to speak. The principle I opted to take a stand on in this case was not giving a hard time to someone with a job to do, who has, based on exchanges, had a very long day already. That’s just the way I roll.
Update 2: Breitbart TV has analysis featuring the full clip here.
Update: I emailed back for clarification as I have not saved the video, or a still shot. I am only hosting a YouTube clip which has apparently been taken down. I informed Fox I would take action on my end if required; however, I honestly am not sure who is violating the copyright here – my blog, or You Tube? If it’s me, of course, I’ll be happy to comply.
The email speaks for itself. I guess their anti-gun anchor was getting too much pub. Last I checked it was one of the most watched News/politics clips on You Tube for the day.
