Since the Trayvon Martin trial, Fox News has been pushing a racist narrative that portrays whites as the real victims of crimes perpetrated by violent, racist African-Americans. In their search for a white Trayvon Martin, they have been trying to portray any criminal acts, committed by blacks against whites, as hate crimes - even when local police say that there is no racial motivation. In creating a false equivalency between the Martin shooting and crimes against whites, Fox is also able to reinforce its meme about librul media bias by asserting that the media isn't sufficiently covering these incidents. Fox's "The Five," pushed this racist agitprop after a school bus beating of a white child by several black youth. Greg Gutfeld questioned the local police's assertion that this wasn't a hate crime. He used the situation to excoriate the African-American community and advance the racist narrative that blacks are scary, brutish thugs. This week he continued the formulaic Fox narrative of how the press is ignoring the real (black on white) hate crime in America.Read more

In case you're not sure whether the just-brokered Syria deal is good news for the Obama administration - given that there are plenty of minefields still left to traverse - one glimpse at FoxNews.com gives you an answer in the affirmative. Why else would they make the headline, "Kerry saving face after Syria deal?" at the top of the page and, in much smaller letters, the headline, "US, Russia reach Syria weapons deal"?Read more
While Fox News is not officially part of the Republican Party, it is their media mouthpiece (their out-house organ?!). As such, Fox will never, evah give credit to President Obama for anything that he does. He could be walking with Jesus and they would accuse him of taking Jesus hostage. Their hatred for Obama was reflected in their disappointment over Syria's agreement to relinquish chemical weapons, a move which they framed as a "humiliating defeat" for this country. Jon Stewart took on this latest anti-Obama meme and in so doing provided a perfect description of Fox News.Read more
On yesterday’s Your World, Grant Cardone, who bills himself as an international business and sales expert, was on hand to criticize discuss President Obama’s leadership style in the Syria crisis. Any Fox watcher worth his or her salt could have guessed in advance that Cardone was going to find Obama severely lacking. But Cardone didn’t exactly add to his foreign policy cred (even if the only FNC requirement seems to be a willingness to attack Obama with inflammatory soundbites) when he said he was more impressed with Miley Cyrus’ leadership in the last two weeks than Obama’s.Read more
Hatriot Michelle Malkin must have been so proud of her little racial dog whistle last night when, during a Hannity-show debate with Juan Williams over President Obama’s Syria policy, she referred to our president as a “rodeo clown.” Yet when Juan Williams suggested that her isolationism was un-American, Malkin was just outraged that someone would dare speak to her that way.Read more
Rudy Giuliani Calls Syria ‘The Most Bungled’ And ‘Most Mishandled’ Foreign Policy In The Modern Age. What About Iraq Mr. 9/11?
How on earth did Rudy Giuliani get to be an expert on Syria? His greatest claim to fame is that he happened to be mayor of New York during the 9/11 attacks. And while my New York City Democratic friends assure me Giuliani did do a great job in the aftermath, that hardly qualifies him as an expert on Syria or anything else regarding foreign policy. And he pretty much proved that by “forgetting” George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq and calling President Obama’s Syria policy “the most bungled” and “most mishandled” foreign policy in the history of the modern age. Seriously.Read more
