Comedian Bob Oschack did some “investigative” reporting on the USC campus about Colorado and Utah joining the PAC-10. In his comedy bit (if you can call it that), he specifically targets foreign students who are clearly not aware of what he’s talking about. Not sure why FOX Sports would left this on the air, but ranks up there with Asians in Library : Racist Rant by Alexandra Wallace. Wendi Deng Murdoch needs to lay the smackdown on this guy.
update: FOX Sports is quickly taking down this video across the internet before it goes viral. This is the last thing FOX Sports parent company, News Corp., needs right now.
update: deadspin is reporting that an apology was issued by FOX Sports (thanks to R. Lee for the tip):
We sincerely apologize to President [C. L. Max] Nikias and the entire USC community for the production and posting of the video. The context was clearly inappropriate and the video was removed as soon as we became aware of it. We will review our editorial process to determine where the breakdown occurred, and we will take steps to ensure something like this never happens again.
update: Fox Sports has canceled the college sports program “The College Experiment” that aired the controversial video. They also apologized to Asians/Asian Americans for making fun of Asian students’ accents and knowledge.
