The post regarding Blair Scott, communications director for American Atheists, received “more than 200 comments that the network identified as threatening; they included multiple death threats aimed at Scott. As a result, Fox News later decided to delete the post…”The second incident involved Fox News’ Fox Nation website, which on Friday was forced to close comments on a post about President Obama that referred to his 50th birthday as a “Hip-Hop BBQ.” The post spurred a slew of comments that the network deemed racist.

Fox News removed comments from their article about Barack Obama’s “Hip-Hop BBQ” because they said that they were racist in nature. Hip-hop BBQ. HIP-HOP BBQ.

Every article on Fox seems to “spur” posts that are racist… or homophobic… or sexist… etc.

Fox News is tabloid journalism for people who are too chicken to check out real news that isn’t written to inspire the Klan, Skinheads, and other groups featuring supremacy-oriented “domestic” terrorists.
