In June, Fox News anchor E.D. Hill infamously called a fist pound between Barack and Michelle Obama a “terrorist fist jab.” Hill’s remarks were met with widespread criticism and ridicule, and shortly afterward, Fox canceled her nightly news show.

Is it because they have one standard for what they laughingly call ‘straight news’ and another one for ‘commentary’?
Or is it because people actually complained about Hill?”
