Election Day Racial Rampage No Big Deal To FOX News

Reported by Ellen - February 2, 2009 -

You may recall that four Staten Island men went on a racial rampage on Election Day night, once Barack Obama was declared the winner. Earlier today, the fourth and final suspect pleaded guilty to the series of racially motivated assaults that night. FOXNews.com noted, "(The men) had been accused of beating a Liberian immigrant teen, pushing a black man to the ground and driving their car over a white man they thought was black." But that was apparently not very newsworthy to FOXNews.com which gave the item a few brief paragraphs. By contrast, CNN.com offered a full report on the horrific spree. Just another example of FOX News' racial insensitivity. Thanks to our reader who pointed out this discrepancy.
