Fox News Guest Accuses Network of ‘Perpetuating Racism’

Screen Shot 2014-12-24 at 8.44.07 AMA discussion of race in America on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor” turned into a debate about the network itself when guest Jasymne Cannick said “many of the shows on this very network help perpetuate the racism that exists in America.” The comment clearly stunned host Eric Bolling, sitting in for O’Reilly, who shot back, “How? Don’t lob a grenade without telling me how.”

Bolling noted that Cannick’s appearance followed several back-to-back discussions of race, with varying viewpoints, and asked her how that perpetuated racism. Cannick said only “you know exactly what I’m saying, Eric.”

Al Sharpton Is Making All Sorts of Headlines

al sharptonIt’s been a busy couple of weeks for MSNBC host Al Sharpton.

Sharpton has been criticized by numerous media outlets, including the New York Post, for turning the execution of two NYPD officers into a story about… well, Al Sharpton. The polarizing MSNBC host held up a cell phone during a press conference with the family of Eric Garner and played a threatening voicemail he received following the tragic executions of the NYPD officers. Sharpton denounced the killings in the same news conference.

Actor and activist James Woods called Sharpton a “pig” for his stance on police and has started a #PigSharpton Twitter campaign.

Just yesterday, Baltimore Fox affiliate WBFF issued an apology for airing a deceptive edit of a Sharpton-led protest video that made it sound like police protesters were chanting “kill a cop” when they were actually changing “’til killer cops are in cell blocks.”

We here at Fox45 work hard every day to earn your trust and bring you fair and comprehensive news from around the country. Although last night’s report reflected an honest misunderstanding of what the protesters were saying, we apologize for the error.

Not everyone is ready to look the other way at Sharpton’s actions. Judson Phillips of The Washington Times penned a column essentially calling for Sharpton’s job at MSNBC. Read more

Jailed Al Jazeera Journalist Sends Holiday Message: ‘It Really Is a Very Good Christmas’

_75673889_021737321-1

Al Jazeera journalist Peter Greste has sent a letter from the Egyptian prison where he’s been held for almost a year, urging his friends and family–and supporters around the world–to be optimistic as he faces Christmas in a cell. “There is a temptation to become morose over our continued detention,” Greste writes in the letter, first published in the Sydney Morning Herald. “After all, on paper we don’t seem to have made much progress.”

But Greste, who will–with fellow Al Jazeera journalists Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamedmark one year in detention on December 29, says the work of many to fight for the journalists’ release has become a powerful movement:

We have changed something fundamental. We – and by that I mean all involved in this fight for justice, including us three, our families, and you, our supporters – have created a huge global awareness of not just our cause, but the far wider and more vital issues of press freedom, the persecution of journalists, and of justice in Egypt.

Al Jazeera America will air a primetime special about the jailed journalists on Monday night.

Fox News Hosts Break Vacations to Cover NYPD Killings, Political Fallout

OReillyBill O’Reilly was off on Monday night, but the killing of two New York City police officers brought him back on the air because, he said, “I’m angry.”

O’Reilly called in to “The O’Reilly Factor” to “send a big message tonight.” O’Reilly then delivered a blistering attack on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. “He is a far left individual who is incompetent. He cannot run the City of New York.” O’Reilly argued that de Blasio is an “anti-cop” politician “who should resign today.”

Of the killer, O’Reilly described Ismaaiyl Brinsley as a “loser” who is the only one with “blood on his hands.” He said “I hope he’s enjoying Hell right now.”

TVNewser has learned Fox hosts Greta Van Susteren and Sean Hannity also broke planned vacations to cover the aftermath of the NYPD murders–not by phone, but returning to work to host new editions of their shows.
