Fox News Fear Mongering Has Whipped Up Paranoia And Hysteria Over 2010 Census

Reported by Ellen - September 26, 2009 -

Josh at Right Wing Watch put together a video compilation of fear mongering over the 2010 Census, featuring a hefty dose from Fox News. Josh writes:

There are many unanswered questions about the tragic hanging death of Bill Sparkman, a US Census Bureau employee, in rural Kentucky. But one thing is clear. Right-Wing leaders like Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and media outlets like Fox News have whipped up hysteria and paranoia over the 2010 Census.

The sad thing is that, as with the murder of Dr. Tiller, a long-time Bill O'Reilly scapegoat, Fox News doesn't seem interested in even considering whether it may have played a role in inciting this kind of violence. Its hate and fear mongering continue unabated. As Josh wrote, the anti-government sentiment "could boil over at any moment."
