Erica Payne Challenges Fox News’ War On The Unemployed

Reported by Ellen - August 6, 2011 -

Our newest Top Dog is Erica Payne of the Agenda Project. Payne was on The O’Reilly Factor last night discussing unemployment insurance, i.e. Fox News’ push to reduce same. Even “liberal” Juan Williams, the guest host, pushed the idea that those receiving unemployment benefits were sitting around on the taxpayers’ dime when they could be working at lower-paying jobs. It was no surprise given that Williams opened the segment by “asking,” “Have American liberals run out of credible solutions to fix this economy?” Payne did a terrific job, not just of arguing her position, but on pushing back against the “Let them work at McDonald’s and stop soaking the rich" mentality.
