Fox News Anchor Apologizes: ‘We Really Messed Up’

Posted on Sep 28, 2012

Shepard Smith, the indisputable voice of sanity and reason on Fox News, apologized on Friday after the network showed what appeared to be a suicide live on the air during its afternoon programming. 

Fox News was following a high-speed police pursuit involving a suspected carjacker in Phoenix when the man got out of the vehicle and eventually shot himself in the head. The cable news channel then immediately cut to a commercial.

When the program resumed, Smith apologized to viewers. “We really messed up,” he said. Smith said the footage had been on a five-second delay and should not have aired. “We’re all very sorry. That didn’t belong on television.”

Watch the video of Smith’s apology.
