Hill Apologizes For “Terrorist” Tease

hill_6-10.JPGFNC anchor E.D. Hill apologized today for promoting a segment about Sen. Barack Obama and Michelle Obama‘s Tuesday night “fist bump,” by using the term, “terrorist fist jab,” as one of the many interpretations of the gesture.

“I apologize because unfortunately some thought I, personally, had characterized it inappropriately,” she said at the beginning of the 2pmET hour. “I regret that. It was not my intention. I certainly didn’t mean to associate the word terrorist in any way with Senator Obama and his wife.”

This follows a Media Matters “Take Action” effort, started today, to get Hill to apologize, urging readers to call or email her and FNC CEO Roger Ailes.
