In a move that should shock absolutely no one, Fox News has signed Sarah Palin as an ‘occasional commentator.’ Palin joins former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and former White House aide Karl Rove, giving Fox the trifecta for malicious fearmongering and blatant misinformation.
Any previous laughable attempt to call the network ‘fair and balanced’ pretty much meets its death with this deal. Asking Sarah Palin to provide creditable political commentary is like asking Slobodan Milosevic for an objective opinion on Albanian citizenship.
Racism and sexism all rolled into one! That’s right, in a move that can only be called breathtakingly stupid, Fox News actually put up the headline “
Outraged Liberals: ‘Stop Picking on Obama’s Baby Mama’”
There simply aren’t words. Really. First we have Liz Trotta smirking that someone should “knock off Obama,” then there was the “terrorist fist jab” (really, that is my absolute favorite. Oh, you silly, silly white people. You couldn’t get any more racist without joining the KKK). Now Michelle Obama will heretofore be known on Fox News as Obama’s Baby Mama.”
Fox News has finally joined the ranks of the National Enquirer. It seems they’re aiming to come as close as possible to calling Obama an “uppity nigger” without using the actual words. The racism has become more and more rampant the closer the election gets.
