During a news update during H&C on 8/30, Steve Centanni repeated the lie that Robertson tried to first skate with over his " hit man" remarks about Hugo Chavez.

Centanni: " ...the U.S. should take him out. He later explained he meant a regime change and not an assassination."

Steve neglected to read Robertson's whole statement which is here.

Anyone saying that Fox has kicked Pat Robertson to the curb is sadly mistaken. This report proves that. Robertson had already apologized for his calling for the murder of Chavez by the time this report aired.
