Fox Drops 'Family Guy' Episode Over Boston 'Hoax'

A recent episode of Family Guy happened to depict someone running in the Boston Marathon and, in his quest to win, running over a contestant.  In an unrelated segment, Peter hooks up with a terrorist and maybe blows up a bridge.  This sparked dozens of YouTube vids highlighting this, and sometimes editing clips to wrongly suggest the explosions were part of the marathon story line, to  "prove" point that Seth MacFarlane "knew" about the coming blasts, etc.  Fox and MacFarlane have now angrily removed the epsiode from circulation and YouTube is cracking down, but many clips remain.  The one below is just one example.
