I wish someone would report on the real reason this woman is crying. (screengrab via Fox News)

You know how all Asian people kind of look the same to you? Well first of all, that's offensive. And second of all, that's why it's not your responsibility to find b-roll footage about Asian news stories. Unfortunately, whoever picks footage for Fox News shares your troubling views. 

Yep, that's right. Fox News did something lazy and stupid. A report on the South Korean ferry disaster accidentally used b-roll footage of non-Korean Asians while describing the complaints of grieving relatives. The video, from April 19, is titled "Search for survivors of Korean ferry disaster continues." While using b-roll footage in a report isn't uncommon, it's the responsibility of the news agency that uses it to trick us into thinking they're not a little bit racist.
