Stephen Colbert calls out Obama for believing Fox News about Shirley Sherrod (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Tuesday, July 27th, 2010 |
Tonight on the Colbert Report Stephen took on both Fox and the Obama administration. Fox clearly embraced the “Shirley Sherrod is racist” story, not necessarily because they are racist but because they are partisan. Obama was the real loser in this equation, why would he believe Fox News instead of doing his own investigation… embarrassing..
It is amazing though how unified Fox is when they have an enemy. It seems as if they get their talking points in the morning and then each show throughout the day revisits the talking points in their “debate”. It’s really scary to head over to Fox New’s forum pages and see how brainwashed these lunatics are. They truly believe that Fox News is the only real news station out there, they totally ignore any fact you show them that could prove otherwise. Sometimes I wonder if those people are barely holding on to their sanity, maybe their brain is trying to protect them. Who knows.
At the end of the day, it makes no sense to believe the word of a ad-driven/conservatively-biased “news” organization instead of real research. How colossally dumb. I think the democrats are crying “racist” because it’s the only defense. Fox News isn’t racist, they are just opportunistic, they saw this as a way to hurt Obama’s credibility. Do I think everyone there hates black people. Nope. Did Obama mess up? Yep, so did all the major news organizations though.
