Fox News Satellite Cuts Off Dem Rep. Sestak's 'Final Word' (VIDEO)

On Fox News Saturday, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) was allowed to have the final word on health care in a debate with Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) -- but he never got to deliver it.

After Franks argued that the health care bill was creating a "socialist government-run system," Sestak was given twenty seconds to respond -- only to have the screen go black in the middle of his first sentence. The satellite feed cut out before the Democratic congressman could actually make his case. A flustered anchor apologized for the technical difficulties.
