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.”
