We're More Patriotic Than You, And Probably A Little Racist As Well

There's a fine line that people like Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly walk when discussing issues involving 'race'. Fox"News" can present a story with definate "racist" overtones and have just enough 'wiggle-room' to get out of being called a blatant, dyed-in-the-wool, racist.

When discussing The Obama's, Fox has a big problem that many people are refusing to acknowledge. But, their problems don't stop with them.

When people like O'Reilly are called-out for being 'racist', they have this neat little trick that they play. They claim "race-baiting".

You see, there's something that the good people at Fox"News" don't seem to realize.

When you frame a story, or discussion, or an entire program around a person's race, you have injected race before your subject even has a chance to repsond.

Of course, stories like this - whether in relation to the Obama's or not - play well with the conservative base that makes up the bulk of Fox"News'" viewership.

There are several Fox Attacks pieces available for you to view at their website.
