As an update to its report calling the Nationalist Socialist Movement (aka Neo-Nazis) "a civil rights group," Fox Orlando has issued an "editor's note" saying they meant to call the group a "self-proclaimed civil rights group."
The editor's note says that the report "inadvertently referred to the National Socialist Movement as a civil rights group." But the report's introduction said, “There’s another civil rights group in town.” Do you think reporter Jennifer Bisram meant to say, "There's another self-proclaimed civil rights group in town?"
I report, you decide (H/T Think Progress).
2/25/18 update: Video no longer available but BuzzFeed has a screen grab, which you can see below.
The neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement is conducting patrols in Sanford, Florida in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting.
I’ve been around that a lot- that’s someone who got told to use a wording that offends them, and pressured with “do it or else!”. Bisram is (rightfully) one of the most pissed off I’ve ever seen- both at herself and whoever pressured her to use the term.
