Fox News Takes on Touré: ‘If Anybody Had Said ‘An Old Black Guy’ Could You Imagine What the Outcry Would Have Been?’

Judith Miller and Kirsten Powers were on Fox News this morning during a weekly media segment on “Happening Now.” The hot topic: MSNBC’s Toure describing Sen. John McCain this week as a member of an “old, white, establishment,” who “wrongly and repeatedly attacked a much younger black woman [U.N. Amb. Susan Rice.]”

Powers, a democratic strategist, talked about her Twitter fight with Touré over the comment this morning. Miller suggested, “If anybody had said, ‘an old black guy’ can you imagine what the outcry would have been? I mean this is just inappropriate. It is completely unworthy of informed criticism.”
