Fox News and the Willie Hortonization of Barack Obama

Media Matters for America has produced a video documenting Roger Ailes' Fox News assault on President Obama and the Administration.

Media Matters has also launched a Only on Fox page on their website dedicated to tracking the outlandish nonsense spouted by the radical right wingers for whom Fox provides a platform. Another website worth checking out is OutFoxed which runs with the premise that Fox is nothing more than a Republican propaganda machine disguised as a media outlet.

You get branded when you don't fight back

Obama's idea of uniting the country is staying above the fray, maintaining his image and not fighting back. Well I don't know about him, but no one in history has been able to unite a country without vanquishing the foes of divisiveness. I hope he realizes that, I hope the Shirley Sherrod episode is a lesson. He has more to learn from this woman who fought back rather than roll over passively. The progressive community is willing to fight for someone who fights back, who stands for something. If Fox is Hortonizing Obama, then he, Axelrod, Messina, Jarrett all of them are equally to blame for being passive and docile.
