Fox Sports Singles Out Asian Students At USC For Interviews On Football And Then Apologizes

In a video posted on the Fox Sports website, reporter Bob Oschack did a segment purporting to welcome Colorado and Utah as they joined the Pac-12 Conference for the 2011 college football season. Oschack said, "Let's give the conference's two newest members a good old-fashioned all-American welcome by paying a visit to one of its oldest members," the University of Southern California.

UPDATE: Fox Sports has pulled the video off its website and its YouTube account. However, it is still accessible on Hulu.

UPDATE: Fox Sports head of media relations Lou D'Ermilio has apologized for the video, according to Deadspin:

We sincerely apologize to President Nikias and the entire USC community for the production and posting of the video. The context was clearly inappropriate and the video was removed as soon as we became aware of it. We will review our editorial process to determine where the breakdown occurred, and we will take steps to ensure something like this never happens again.
