More on Fox’s racist “White Hizzy” Talk

Reported by Ellen - June 13, 2011 -

I posted on Saturday (6/11/11) about Fox Business’ Sandra Smith asking, “Do we really have to have (Gabon’s leader) in the White Hizzy?” It turns out Smith was just following up on the words of Follow the Money host and Glenn-Beck understudy Eric Bolling. We’ve now got the complete segment plus teases and they're truly nauseating from beginning to end.

For example, Bolling teased the segment by saying, “Guess who's coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa's kleptocrats. It's not the first time he's had a hoodlum in the hizzouse." Plus, there was a photo of Gabon’s leader with a shining tooth and the repeated use of a banner saying, “Hoods in the House.”

Memo to Fox: If you’re so concerned about guests’ integrity, you ought to take a look at your own guest list and reconsider the decision to host smarmy Jason “I’m not fighting the terrorists there because I’m fighting the culture war here” Mattera. Mattera may be the only guest – and a conservative, to boot – who has not just been rebuked by a Fox News host but whose unprofessionalism led Bill O’Reilly to side with his arch enemy, Sen. Al Franken.

Not surprisingly, Mattera was given full credibility as a pundit by Bolling.
