A Fox News Channel host apologized on Monday for saying "all terrorists are Muslim," saying he "misspoke," reports the New York Times’ Media Decoder blog.
"I don’t believe all terrorists are Muslims. I’m sorry about that if I offended or hurt anybody’s feelings," Brian Kilmeade said on "Fox & Friends," the show which he co-hosts, the story says. Media Matters, a liberal group that tracks Fox News, said it was skeptical that it was a slip of the tongue, because Kilmeade made the statement twice on Friday, once on television and hours later on his radio show, the story notes.
On his radio show on Monday, Kilmeade said, "What I should have said, and I’d like to clarify, is all terrorists who killed us on 9/11; with the Cole; and the Khobar; and the ‘98 embassies; that’s what I should have said."
