Is it a case of color-blindness or just blind dumb???


Fox News really is fair and balanced. The "news" channel showed a picture of Frederick Douglass in reference to the Abraham Lincoln versus Stephen A. Douglas debate of 1858. People like MSNBC's Dan Abrams may think it's a sign of stupidity, sloppiness or ignorance to confuse the abolitionist with the pro slavery senator, and to think that a black man could run for senate in the 1850's. I say, it's just an example of Fox News being fair and balanced, post-racist, and color blind. (video after the jump)

Fox probably thought when the Lincoln/Douglas debates were mentioned it must mean the black abolitionist because, after all, he was black just like Obama. They're just complete idiots, only the truly ignorant would trust them as a news source. Here's another one, check which party Fox claims McCain belongs to.

Nice doctored photo.

Look in the bottom right hand corner not the name of Neil Cavuto's show.

You don't like that one? Here's another identifying Republican sex offender Mark Foley as a Democrat. Of course, knowing how "Fair and Balanced" Fox is, this may have been on purpose.

But you already threw a doctored photo up so how do we know this is not another? You have a link to check it out?

And in case that didn't convince you that Fox is anything but a news channel, here's another misidentification, Lincoln Chafee is not the Democrat, Whitehouse is. BTW, there are plenty more where these others came from, Fox is an embarassment. No wonder, look at the audience they cater to, most of them don't even know the difference.

No doctoring, you, like many Fox viewers are in denial. I understand that propaganda has a way of doing that to you.

This is was serious when Fox News contributor John Loftus incorrectly identified a La Habra, CA, home as that of a terrorist. As could be predicted some of the neanderthals that watch Fox harassed the family of five that lived there.


Misidentifying a politician's party is one thing, but misidentifying a family's home as that of a terrorist is quite another. Obviously, something like that could lead to dire consequences.
