Andrea Tantaros, a co-host of the Fox News show 'The Five' and host of her own show on the Talk Radio Network, told radio listeners today to "punch" an Obama voter in the face because Fox News reporter James Rosen had been investigated by the U.S. Justice Department.

According to the Washington Post, a federal judge found probable cause that a reporter (possibly Rosen) solicited a top-secret CIA report on North Korea from government adviser Stephen Jin-Woo Kim in 2009.

“Fox said, 'We’re targets, clearly Media Matters and others have put us on a target list,'" Tantaros said on her radio show. “And they said, ‘Oh, Fox is just crazy! They’re just paranoid!’ Really? Are we?”

“This is what is happening to our press. This is Obama’s America! It’s like the Soviet Union. He said he would change the country. He said it. And a lot of people voted for him. And if you see any of those people today, do me a favor, punch them in the face.”

After a commercial break, Tantaros clarified that she wasn't calling for violence against President Obama, but rather his supporters.

“To be clear, I didn’t say punch Obama in the face,” Tantaros explained. “You’re going to get me arrested with this type of government. If someone voted for him! If anyone that you know who voted for President Obama, smack ‘em down.”
