Fox Airs Ariz. Man’s Suicide

Fox News’s Shep Smith apologized on Friday after the network aired a carjack suspect shooting himself in the head after a police chase west of Phoenix. “We really messed up,” Smith admitted after a hasty commercial break. “That didn’t belong on TV.” According to Mediabistro, studio crew members gasped as the suspect shot himself, and Smith said “get off, get off, get off” and asked the control room to cut away. The suspect had fired shots at pursuing officers along a dirt road, and then jumped out of the car, put the gun to his head, and slumped to the ground.
