Man Who Attempted to Burn Down Mosque Was A Fan of Fox News - Let's See How Fox News Reports The Story...

So back in September, some disturbed individual set fire to a mosque in Toledo, Ohio. But there was a little detail that made this story more noteworthy than usual:

After setting fire to the prayer room of a mosque in Ohio on September 30th, Randolph Linn of Indiana today pleaded guilty to the crime.

Under the terms of his plea deal, Linn will cut his 40-year jail sentence in half.

The St. Joe resident, who brought several firearms and gas containers with him to the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo, told Judge Jack Zouhary he had become "riled up" after watching Fox News.

Well, I for one am shocked at this revelation. I also liked this bit as well:

When asked by the judge if he knew any Muslim or what Islam is, Linn reportedly said, "No, I only know what I hear on Fox News and what I hear on radio."
 Sounds about right.

So I was curious to see, in light of this recent news how the "news" organization in question would report this story. Can YOU see anything missing?

Ctrl-F: "Fox".

No results found.* Imagine that. I'm sure this was just an oversight by one of the unpaid interns, and will be updated with the correct information in no time.

*Yes, I'm fully aware that you can't Ctrl-F an image file.
