11. See, if Fox were a real news organization composed of journalists...
They'd know that it is standard journalistic practice to refer to any suspect accused but not yet convicted of a crime as the "alleged" rapist, murderer, terrorist, etc.

However, since Fox News is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Republican party composed not of journalists but highly paid liars and rabble-rousers, it's not surprising that they would be unaware of this fact.
