Fox News Apologizes for F-Bombs at Casey Anthony Trial Broadcast

July 5, 2011, 4:29 am GMT

Casey used the f-word five times during a phone call with her mother which record was played at the murder trial aired on live television, Monday, July 4.



Casey Anthony murder trial on Monday, July 4 dropped five f-bombs and Fox News has accidentally aired it. The prosecution's rebuttal of the defense's closing arguments was presented that day and included a recording of a phone call between Casey and her mother during which Casey said the word "f***ing" five times.

The expletives were broadcast live because Fox didn't have the trial broadcasting on a standard seven-second delay. FNC anchor Gregg Jarrett interrupted the broadcast to apologize to viewers and later the network put the rest of the testimony on a seven-second tape delay to prevent further problems.

Beside Fox, HLN and MSNBC also did coverage of the prosecution rebuttal which began at 8:30 A.M. ET. Jurors will continue to deliberate Casey's case into Tuesday. Casey could face the death penalty if she is convicted in the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee.
