(Getty Images) (Newser) – A Fox staffer in Latin America thought a good way to promote a Christmas special would be with an online poll asking people whether they thought the Jewish people were responsible for the death of Jesus Christ. Other options included Pontius Pilate or the high priests. Fox pulled the poll and apologized after receiving complaints, AP reports. The Simon Weisenthal Center in Buenos Aires called the poll a reference to Vatican propaganda that "resulted in the persecution and murder of Jews for two millennia."
