As news outlets cover the social media trail left by the suspect, the "America Live" gives a spirited reading of one of his many pop culture references.

Left to focus on alternative angles as the manhunt for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev produces few developments, many outlets have followed the social media trail left by the 19-year-old.

Tweets from Dzhokhar's presumed Twitter account, which includes lyrics from songs by Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, Peter Frampton and others, have been quoted on broadcast and cable news anchors throughout Friday -- but none with quite the same panache as Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly.

Going through the more than a dozen postings to the account since Monday's bombing, Kelly stumbled upon one quoting Eminem from the 2000 Dr. Dre track "Forgot About Dre" during the Friday afternoon telecast of America Live.

"Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin' to say, but nothin' comes out when they move their lips... just a bunch of gibberish," read Kelly. "I believe that's the quote of a song."

Even the smallest dose of levity is welcome during such sobering coverage. Watch it below:
