FOX affilliate scrubs white supremacist story from website

Reported by Chrish - December 22, 2005

From ThinkProgress.org:

Fox affiliate "FOX Carolina" last month ran a one-sided fluff piece exploring StormFront.org, an online hub for white supremacists.

The Anti-Defamation League describes StormFront as a " veritable supermarket of online hate, stocking its shelves with many forms of anti-Semitism and racism." Yet not a single critical voice is included in the Fox story — only StormFront members and moderators are included.

ThinkProgress has acquired the video of the segment. (Note: the clip is "annotated" with text commentary by StormFront members.) Watch it: ( Quicktime)

FOX Carolina's website has removed both the video and transcript of this segment from its website. ThinkProgress called the network today to ask why the story had been removed; a network official told us it had nothing to do with protests over the piece, but rather was part of the station's normal process of removing older stories from its website.

But wait, here is a story from September. And here is one from August! Their site is full of old posts - they will have to come up with a better excuse than that, or perhaps just tell the truth.
