    gosh... i wonder if they used the wrong video because all blacks look the same to those at Fox... or if they purposely made the "mistake" as a jab... either way, Murdoch's racist propaganda network strikes again...

    Conyers blasts Fox News for ‘apology.’

    Fox News “apologized” today after airing images of Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) during a discussion of indicted Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) (both happen to be African African).

    “Yesterday at this time, news of the indictment of Congressman William Jefferson came down. We mistakenly ran the wrong video to accompany this story and we apologize for that error,” a Fox anchor, Martha MacCallum, told viewers at about 1:20 p.m. today. The 10-second apology made no reference to Mr. Conyers and did not explain why or how the erroneous video made it to air.​

    Conyers responded today in a statement:

    Fox News has a history of inappropriate on-air mistakes that are neither fair, nor balanced. 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.​

    I don't think it's intentional, I think the network is made up of professionals who themselves are probably closet bigots so they make these frequent, accidental mistakes that reveal their personal views or ignorance.

    Didn't you hear ? Fox is the only network that ever makes an innocent mistake :rolleyes:

    Liberals are so pathetic that every little thing that happens has to have a new thread, they are petty little kids who's hatreds control their every thought.

    every network makes mistakes... it's just that not every network makes the convenient mistake of precisely what everyone views them as... -- biggots...

    please don't talk to us about "petty" or "hatreds"... Fox' party of choice has cornered the market on both terms, thanks...

    For Fox to have done that is extremely irresponsible and proves the adage that they all look alike...

    That is a purely bigoted statement that you can neither prove or substantiate, so the fact that you even threw it out there is totally irresponsible.

    Go ahead and justify it as you will as "political satire" or whatever, but this is a racist crap, and totally offensive.

    Lets see...

    "God and the Dingobats"... no, that's not a liberal-started thread... "Obama and the Race Crap"... "Homosexuals brainwashing schoolkids..."

    Let's face it, the last thing the right wing should be crowing about, is how everybody on the "other side" is "blinded by hate."

    I noticed one of the right wingers here did a nice historical windup on "The Big Lie," only to serve up the notion that anything pointing out the "Big Lie" theory at work at Bush's expense, is itself an a priori example of "The Big Lie." Regardless of whether it's true.

    The same kind of double think is going into the right wing extremist responses seen here.

    Fox adds to its already shoddy as hell journalism by running the wrong video...

    and it's proof that the left is full of hate.

    Ah, yah.

    Ummmmm, In case you did not notice. I started and participated in exactly ZERO percent of those threads.

    Look, they did not put him in black face, alter the photo to make it "blacker" or any of those other patently racial things. They ran one guys video in the place of another AND they APOLOGIZED. I personally don't care what Conyers opinion on the matter is.

    To start a thread, to say "Gee look, Fox is irresponsible and careless" is one thing (and fine in my book). To start a thread with:

    Makes you a race baiter and is inappropriate no matter what political leaning you have. Show a little dignity here.

    Just as likely Fox mistook one total moron for another.

    The Fox has got them running scared.

    Conyers:
    His whole career has been "Racist", he can't talk about the weather unless he brings "Race" into it.

    That's beautiful coming from you LeftWingPressCoverage. You trump your criticism of Fox by being even more irresponsible then you claim they were.

    Thank God for Fox News
    Can you just imagine being forced to watch Cute Perky Katie spew her mushy liberal crap night after night.

    The Liberal viewpoint is the American equivalent of state-run totalitarian news control, like the old Soviet, like North Korea's "one idea" policy, like Castro's Cuba, and Hugo Chavez's Venezuela.

    Example: see how quickly the "climate change" community moved to brow-beat the head of NASA for simply stating over the public airwaves that he had questions over the *causes* of global warming. The man doesn't even deny that the climate is warming; he only wants to see more evidence of *why* it's happening.

    His reward: For simply stating he had some unanswered questions he has been unmercifully attacked, brow-beaten into submission.

    100% disgusting, 100% anti-American. America was created as a place where a man could voice his opinion freely, without being accosted by "the establishment". America is becoming what it once sought to leave behind forever, a stagnated, calcified old world of pitch-forks and Inquisitions.

    Like i said... it's a pattern at Faux...

    Fox News' African-American elected official mix-up not its first

    Summary: On The Live Desk, Fox News showed footage of Rep. John Conyers while Brian Wilson reported on the expected indictment of Rep. William Jefferson. This is not the first time Fox News has shown footage of one African-American elected official while discussing another -- in the previous case, airing footage of Harold Ford Jr. while talking about Sen. Barack Obama.

    You stereotype worse than the ones you accuse of doing so. You do it on purpose. That was a mistake by Fox. They are conservative but that does not make them a racist propoganda network that thinks all blacks look alike and shove the jaggie talk up your azz. There are some on the left who post on this board that I have respect for. You're not on the list. You would be distanced from by your hero's like Sheehan was. That's embarasing. Now insult me back so you can feel all superior. The right needs more people like you. Keep up the good work. You're costing the left votes. Keep that stupid smile. Some may say it fits you well.

    oh Jaggie.... well, at least you finally explained your babbling self so that we can get to the meat of the issue... there are some conservatives on the list I also have respect for... you are not on the list... address me personally with respect up front, and you'll be returned the same... feign indignance when i'm NOT addressing you personally, and attack me? well, the gloves come off at that point, f*cko... you have no one to blame but your punkish self...

    regardless, Fox has a long history of racist propaganda, usually veiled under subtly or "accident"... so, please don't insult the board by insinuating it was an isolated incident... because it wasn't... which i made clear twice in this thread...

    i'm not smiling when it comes to issues like this...

    Yeah right,

    The very first time I ever replied to a post of yours you came back with "who the frick are you"? look another Bushie(or something close to that)" For your info, I'm not as"Bushie" but I am conservative. That is possible you know or do you stereotype that as well? Even now you are the one who called my reply "moronic" and called me "jaggie". You started with the name calling. So you wrote the rule there. I simply called you out on your post by pointing out what and others(read the string) concluded ......Are you going to put me on your ignore list like you threatened Harry with? Don't dare to debate the almighty "LeftWingPressCoverage" or you are banished into deep space?

    No, i only put people on ignore who seem insane, can't stay on topic and are mere distraction .... you're not insane, you're just an instigator ... As for our first exchange, considering you're just flat lying about who started the personal attacks, I guess i have to address it ... here is your first instigation, on a personal level... you then continued to call me LeftWingPress... and a number of other personal attacks before i ever even addressed you... i don't have a problem with such antagonation... but, don't go running your mouth directly towards another poster if you can't stand to receive it right back... show some class and respect, and you'll receive the same... if not, well, here we are...

    You may not wish to associate yourself as a "loyal Bushie" (who would?), but your post history indicates you march right in line with the Bush Doctrine... between your anti-France diabtribes, your "Phuck Michael Moore" sentiment, and your incessant cries of imagined media bias, you seem a loyal Bushie in most forms... you haven't found a Fox talking point you didn't like or come to the rescue of here... a quick sampling of you post history shows that... and i'm not the only one who sees it...
