Fox News host Steve Doocy was forced to backtrack Tuesday after a guest called him out over a seemingly transparent racist quip in which he declared that all the suspects who'd tried to blow up American airliners "look alike."

I hope someday he gets a chance to interview Sheikh Al Waleed, second biggest shareholder of News Corp (Fox News is a part of it) behind Rupert Murdoch.

Then he just might be able to have his eye sight back.
