Why Hasn't Fox News Reported On Laura Schlessinger's N-Word Harangue?

Reported by Ellen - August 13, 2010 -

Fox News is so quick to accuse black people of racism against whites. Yet, as Think Progress reports, it has ignored Dr. Laura Schlessinger's on-air harangue with an African America caller in which Schlessinger repeatedly used the n-word (Huffington Post counted 11 times in 5 minutes). So where's the "fair and balanced" coverage? Nowhere to be found apparently.

Earlier today, Think Progress reviewed coverage of the story on CNN and MSNBC and found that CNN ran five segments about it, MSNBC ran two. Fox News ran none.

Is Fox News only interested in racial issues when they can accuse an African American of racism? Or are they just protecting someone considered a "friend" and who happens to be published by another News Corp subsidiary, Harper?
