There is more to this story, so let me fill you in. The news director, Mike Tomko, sent Melinda Roeder a link to a video and told her he wanted her to do a story on that video. He told her that it was a video calling for "killing cops". Ms Roeder was hesitant to use it, but was told by the ND that it was Ok to use. The link he sent her was the EDITED video, but she did not know that. She trusted her news director (as she should have been able to). When the "error" hit the fan, and it should have, the Station Manager, in order to protect the station, and because people who did not know the real story were calling for her to be fired, and they NEEDED a scape goat for FOX 45 (after all, God forbid they actually take responsibility) let her and the photographer who worked with her go for "released without cause" and then leaked it out that the 2 staffers were let go. They had nothing to do with editing the tape, the ND found it, sent it, assigned it to Ms Roeder, AND DID THE FINAL APPROVAL OF THE STORY AS IT WAS SEEN ON AIR.
