KMSP hops on the

Local Fox station (KMSP) shows video of a Barack Obama rally during a story about a sex offender's sentencing. Finally we get a local angle to this national trend of casually/accidentally smearing Obama.

The comments on that YouTube page are hilarious in their stupidity. To think that a weekend newscast would purposely try to smear Obama by airing 3 seconds of video of a draft obama rally during the wrong story is insane.

It was clearly a mistake. An embarrassing mistake, but come on people.

KMSP's news director apologised:

As News Director of KMSP, I can assure you this was an unfortunate error. We sincerely apologize. On Friday we changed to a new video server playback system and we encountered a few problems, however that is not an excuse. We are running a correction in our newscasts tonight, and apologizing once again to anyone who viewed this story. I would also add that FOX 9 did an entire reporter package on the "Run Obama" rally here in the Twin Cities this weekend. Clearly this was positive coverage of the groundswell of support for the Senator. I know readers will view this with skepticism, but that's truly what happened, and again, we are sincerely apologetic. Bill Dallman, News Director KSMP Television.

I do not believe you Mr. Dillman...oops, I guess I accidently got your name wrong you asshole (darn, meant to say sir).

Were you associated with any other network I would be inclined to give you the benefit of the doubt. Alas, you aren't and I won't.

Hope you choke! I mean, have a nice day...really.

Clearly this was not a mistake. Another good reason for staying away from FOX.

Go 950 am.

I'm surprised no one said Karl Rove was responsible for this.
