Trayvon Martin's family's attorney, Daryl Parks, visited the Hannity show last night - which, if you don't count the host's relentless advocacy on behalf of George Zimmerman, was not bad - for a rather fair and, yes, balanced discussion hosted by a guy who has got to be the biggest race baiter on national television. Perhaps the interview was too friendly for FoxNews.com producers. When they posted the clip on the internet, they called, "How should Trayvon Martin be remembered?" The thuggish photo was kind of a clue to what they were thinking the answer should be.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then compare this grab to the actual video it's supposed to represent. The video is also embedded below.
If the FCC was willing to fine each and every CBS affiliate over “Nipplegate,” then Limbaugh’s use of the “n-word” on the air should certainly have repercussions.
(It should be noted that “South Park” had an episode several years ago in which the “n-word” was used very freely and very frequently, but co-creator Trey Parker who wrote the episode made certain that the word kept its edge as a disparaging word. Limbaugh, I feel reasonably safe in noting, most likely doesn’t plan to show even a fraction of a percentage of the sensitivity that was shown on “South Park.”)
And in terms of how bad they got, the only reason they’re second to Limbaugh overall is that Limbaugh thinks he can say the N-Word on the air now, and has made sure we know how he plans to use it. Other than that, same volume per hour, same level of viciousness, same “why should I hide it?” attitude.
Hannity’s 2nd on Fox, third overall, entirely because he cares enough to put on fronts. But I digress… carry on.
