FOX Continues to Attack Black America


We first created FOX Attacks Black America two years ago in an effort to illustrate FOX's penchant for airing bigoted views.  Not only do they bring on racist guests, but some of the most inflammatory remarks come from African Americans guests like Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson--FOX's insidious attempt to lend credence to their racial prejudice.  And despite Barack Obama's historic election, the network continues to smear the President and black America with the same kind of hateful rhetoric we saw throughout the election cycle.

On Sean Hannity's show last week, Peterson said, "I think we all agree that Barack Obama was elected by, mostly by black racists and white guilty people."  Now, Hannity pretended to be shocked by Peterson's words, but as News Hounds noted, Hannity has had Peterson on the show repeatedly over the years to spout similar bigotry.  In December of 2006, for instance, Peterson told Hannity, "Racist blacks have the freedom of expression when it comes to the issue of race and morality... but white folks are made to be quiet and not even mention race."  How did Hannity reply to Peterson during that segment?  He merely said, "Always love having you," and that he was proud to be on the advisory board of Peterson's organization, BOND Action.
