In the continuing saga of "bright blue scrotum"-gate, the person who was responsible for posting the doctored video to YouTube has been fired. The news was first reported by FTVLive.
John Sanders, who was interviewed about the clip Friday by Breitbart.tv's B-Cast, was a correspondent for WBAL-TV in Baltimore.
WBAL-TV released this statement today: "WBAL-TV management has learned that a former WBAL-TV employee posted a video regarding Fox News' John Gibson and Attorney General Eric Holder on his personal YouTube page without the prior knowledge or consent of anyone at WBAL-TV or Hearst-Argyle Television. This video was not approved by, used, or sanctioned in any way by WBAL-TV or Hearst-Argyle Television and we do not condone such behavior. Further, this video does not represent the views of WBAL-TV or Hearst-Argyle Television."
On yesterday's radio show, Gibson brought up the video flap again. Click continued to hear the clip (via Johnny Dollar)...
This surprises me! It is good news.
he posted the doctored video on his own youtube page. What an idiot. Guess he found out that even a liberal will be fired on occasion.
Good , Now John should sue up the ying yang!!
They are trying to avoid getting their arses sued.
Hope John tells them to lawyer up too.
He’ll get picked up by msnbc.
Ol' Bummer has probably already hired him.
Hope Gibson sues the guy for libel AND the television station he worked for (even though he’ll likely lose that one) just to give them hell. And of course Huffington Post.
