Fox News Waits Three Days to Air ‘Vulgar’ Jesse Jackson Remarks

So Jesse Jackson was caught on a hot mic prior to a Fox News interview that was taped on Sunday morning saying he wants to “cut [Obama's] nuts off” for talking down to Black people. Apart from the galling historical connotations of such a statement, and the presumption that Jackson may have ostensibly ended his career (at least through the end of this election cycle), or even the sense that this is probably the first gaffe in a long hot summer that will be filled with them, the question remains: why did Fox wait until Wednesday to air these remarks?
