UPDATE: WBFF-TV has apologized for the segment in a statement:

We here at Fox45 work hard every day to earn your trust and bring you fair and comprehensive news from around the country. Although last night’s report reflected an honest misunderstanding of what the protesters were saying, we apologize for the error.

A local Fox affiliate in Baltimore, WBFF-TV, is accused by critics of selectively editing footage of “Justice for All” protesters in Washington, D.C., to make it look like they were chanting “kill a cop.” Further review of the footage appears to prove that protesters never chanted such a thing.

Here’s how WBFF-TV reportedly covered the event:

The news station is accused of cutting off the video mid-chant, cutting out vital context.

The full video captured by C-SPAN seemingly reveals what the protesters were really chanting.

We can’t stop!

We won’t stop!

’til killer cops are in cell blocks!

The woman who was reportedly leading the chant responded to the video edit in a Facebook post, according to Gawker:
