Fair, Balanced, and Kinda Racist

conyers3.jpgAnd speaking of racists, at Fox News, apparently they do believe all black people look the same.

Fox News Channel apologized on-air Tuesday for running tape of a different congressman while reporting Monday on the indictment of Rep. William J. Jefferson on bribery charges.

The network ran footage of House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers of Michigan instead of Jefferson. Both congressmen are black.

Inexcusable.

Conyers agrees.

The apology apparently wasn’t accepted by Conyers.

“Fox News has a history of inappropriate on-air mistakes that are neither fair, nor balanced,” he said Tuesday. “This type of disrespect for people of color should no longer be tolerated. I am personally offended by the network’s complete disregard for accuracy in reporting and lackluster on-air apology.”

In Fox’s defense, they are both bald. (*shakes head ruefully*)

Calling FOX insensitive and racist is like calling Dane Cook a talentless Neanderthal. And we all know the likelihood of Dane Cook apologizing for Employee of the Month.

I first heard of this on Keith Olberman last night at 12:30. I agree with Manny. Fox is an easy target. Still, sometimes shooting fish in a barrel is the most satisfying way to fish...racist partisan bastards.

"I first heard of this on Keith Olberman last night at 12:30"

Oh man, maybe Al and Jesse are going to be shouting "no justice no peace" in another criminal attempt at a monetary shakedown!
