Fox Anchor Wrongly Labels House a "Terrorist Lair"
A couple whose home was wrongly identified on national television as belonging to an Islamic radical has faced harassment, and police are providing special protection.
But the alleged Islamic radical moved out three years ago. Randy and Ronnell Vorick are the current residents. Loftus gave out the home address on his show.
He said the home belonged to Iyad Hilal, whose group, Loftus said, has ties to those responsible for the July 7 bombings in London. But Hilal moved out of the house about three years ago.
Fox apologized and said Loftus has been reprimanded. Loftus doesn't sound anywhere near apologetic:
Loftus also apologized and told the Los Angeles Times last week that "mistakes happen. ... That was the best information we had at the time."
Sorry, but three year old information hardly qualifies as anything approaching "best information." Why wasn't this guy fired?
