Fox News Hearts White Guys

In the wake of the Sonia Sotomayor hearings and the there-goes-the-neighborhood type of terror of the white male Republicans grilling her, and after my previous post about O’Reilly and Crowley debate Alan Colmes over an article by Maureen Dowd commenting on the hearings and the ridiculousness of the white male Republicans’ attacks on Sotomayor, I browsed through the video page on Fox News, just for kicks.

After checking out the categories of news and politics, what I figured out was that if the white male power structure becomes extinct, some of Fox News’ video pages will be largely blank, ‘cause I was nearly drowned in a sea of white male faces. Out of the 36 pictures I saw, only 4-1/2 were non-white males (and I’m not sure we can count the photo of Sonia Sotomayor, who was only featured so they could smear her).
