Holy fuck

I thought it had to be a photoshop job at first, but no, it's real

Unfortunately no one in the Fox Nation will even realize what they did.

Racism is dead. It does not play a part with the Fox Nation.

It's just four black men; Barkley, Jay-Z, Chris Rock and Obama - with the title "Obama's Hip Hop Bar B Q Didn't Create Jobs".

Here's a link:
Fox Nation Calls Obama Birthday Party 'Hip-Hop BBQ' (PHOTO)

(I don't know the context of the link, I am just now seeing it - looks pretty bad on the surface, will wait to comment further)

My only real, institutionalized problem with FOX is this insistence that their straight news is unbiased. I don't even care if they have a conservative agenda, just admit it and stop insulting the intelligence of anyone not already drinking that kool-aid. But when they do shit like this...I don't know yet. Just giving the link.

Yes, but this goes beyond just bias, this is playing on stereotypes and trying to evoke fear.

This is trying to paint the picture that Obama has turned the white house into a rap video.

The bias comment is apart from the link. I tried to edit to make that more clear.

Right now, I have no idea how they can justify that headline/pics, etc.
Seems to be, at the moment, one of their most egregious examples of playing down to 'mouthbreathers'.

It was in relation to Obama's birthday party. Which of course was attended by black rappers and gangstas from da hood.

Hoodlums in the hizzouse

At least Kanye wasn't there. I hope the white people there weren't too scared. This is actually in the url

"obama-parties-chris-rock-jay-z-and-whoopi-while-rome-burns"

To be fair Jay Z could probably single-handedly wipe out the deficit so why isn't Obama forcing him to? I bet if he was white he would. Obama only wants to take money away from white people.

Rush Limbaugh shredded Fox News over their questions for the Republican presidential candidates in the debate on Thursday night.

Speaking on his radio show on Friday, Limbaugh blasted the network, which co-hosted the debate in Iowa. He blamed the candidates' attacks on each other on what he believes was the hosts' attempt to gain the approval of mainstream media.

"My gosh, does nobody on this panel remember that we're running against Obama?" he thundered. "What is this business that these guys are trying to tear each other up?"

Then, he alleged, "Fox wants these people to tear each other up. Cause they want approval from the mainstream media, cause that's what the mainstream media would do." He added, "You never see the Democrats pitted against each other, not like this was."

Limbaugh especially took issue with Byron York, who had asked Michele Bachmann to explain what it meant to be a submissive wife. Limbaugh said, "Now I guarantee you, I guarantee you that the favorite journalist of the mainstream media today is Byron York.”

How does Fox still dupe people into thinking it's not the mainstream media?
