CNN host Brian Stelter hosted Cornel West and Marc Lamont Hill yesterday to respond to Fox News’ attempts to paint #BlackLiesMatter as a hate group.
Some excellent points were made, particularly in relation to the main purpose of #BlackLivesMatter – which is to protest treatment of African Americans by law enforcement, not to target the police. And Hill correctly fingered Fox’s goal of changing the conversation away from the subject of black lives mattering to smearing the movement.
However, I would have appreciated it had one of the three noted the rank hypocrisy of Fox News’ attack in the first place given their support of criminal rancher Cliven Bundy’s threats against law enforcers and how FoxNews.com tolerates, if not welcomes, discussions about murdering liberals on its website.
Still, it was an interesting discussion worthy of viewing. Watch it below, from the September 6 Reliable Sources.
The mouthpieces at the Workplace Bullies Network want to keep this Bundy incident buried.
