Was E D Hill Fired From Fox News For Terrorist Jab Remark? | Video

During the June 6th Edition of FOX News' America's Pulse, host E.D. Hill gave this tease before going to commercial:

A fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab? The gesture everyone seems to interpret differently.

After the commercial E.D. Hill had a body language expert, as guest, to discuss the body language of Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama and his wife Michelle [See the Video Clip below].

The following week, E.D. Hill apologized for her comments [See 2nd Video Clip below]. And just recently, FOX News has removed E.D. Hill from the America's Pulse program. Will she be fired? No one knows for sure. But the word out right now is that she is staying with the network in "a capacity to be determined."

Hill has been with the FOX News Network since 1998. She co-anchored Fox & Friends for several years before moving to the 11 a.m. (ET) hour, followed by anchoring her new show, America's Pulse.

If you have been looking for the video of the show on June 6, here it is below. I guess FOX was trying to make sure they keep their TV ratings up with the "Terrorist Fist Jab" comment. I interpreted the 'fist jab' as nothing more than an affectionate "bump" between a married couple. I didn't read anything demonic as a "terroristic" message into it. What do you think?

Here is a video clip of E.D. Hill's apology. I think she should keep her job and return to TV reporting. After all... this is FOX News Network. She probably won't make those type of comments again, or will she?
