(Newser) – The Fox anchor who stirred up a fricassé when he almost suggested a co-worker go pluck a chicken has apologized for his on-air bleep, reports AP. "I misspoke," said veteran New York broadcaster Ernie Anastos. "I apologize for my remarks to anyone who may have been offended." A manager roasted Anastos over the cheep trick, saying he was "very disappointed" by the anchor's obscene suggestion to the weather forecaster.
