“Sorry our reporters, producers and editors are racist.”

At least they’ve apologized.

A few days ago, Fox Sports aired a piece in which Asian students at USC were singled out and mocked by reporter Bob Oschack because of the students’ accents and apparent lack of knowledge about Colorado and Utah joining the Pac-10. This has popped up on quite a few blogs already, but just in case you missed it, we’re including the gem here. It’s ridiculous that Oschack produced this story in the first place, but even worse, how many editors and producers saw it before it aired and figured it was just fine? They’ve taken down the video, and Fox apologized “to the entire USC campus,” but it can be viewed here, via Media Matters.
