Fox News Says Obama Is Dead Instead of Osama (YouTube Video)

Breaking news seem to emerge one after another this week. We might still immerse ourselves in the great excitement of Osama Bin Laden's death, which was announced by President Obama on May 1. You'll soon be flabbergasted by this news - Obama is DEAD!, as announced by Fox news.

"President Obama speaking from the East Room of the White House", an anchor called Will Thomas from Fox News says as the president walks away from the podium, "telling the nation and the world that President Obama is, in fact, dead."

In fact, it's the anchor's unfortunate mistake. The unlucky anchor was for Fox News Channel and was live on the air when the news broke. It has been recored to a video clip and uploaded to YouTube. Here is the clip dubbed 'President Obama is DEAD!!?? FAIL!' which can be downloaded by Leawo YouTube Downloader tool.



From the video, we find that the female anchor was stunned at the male anchor's gaffe. She whisperd a quiet warning to him though he continues before realizing what he said.

This short video clip has quickly yielded 1 million views on YouTube during the past four days and become viral on the Internet. From the video description, we know that it was uploaded by the user titled 'peetagts', who has a channel on YouTube with the same name serving totally 11 videos, having 41 subscribers and 1,2 million total upload views.

According to the media, Fox news has been known for carelessly making mistake and twisting the facts, like switching poll numbers so they match their agenda, or making 'typos' like declaring an absurd politician is a Democrat, when in fact he is a Republican.
