According to this, Fox News has edited the headline of a story about two parents that left their child to die in its cot, saying originally “Video Gamers Leave Baby To Die” before changing the words to “Parents of Baby Left Alone in Car Seat for 8 Days Face Murder Charges”.

The story related to a Peoria Illinois couple who left their five month-old baby strapped to a carseat for eight days while they were home “playing video games, watching TV, feeding and caring for themselves.”

Fox News is now on a proper hate watch from the “community” after both the Mass Effect sex lies escapade and giving air time to Jack Thompson after the NIU shootings.
