Is Fox News racist? The question was raised recently, Yahoo News reported.
As iMediaEthics previously wrote, Fox News was criticized when Fox Business Network’s Eric Bolling commented in May calling the White House the “Hizzouse.” Bolling later apologized.
But, Fox News’ Fox Nation website headlined a story about President Barack Obama’s birthday celebration as “Obama’s Hip-Hop BBQ Didn’t Create Jobs.”
Fox News has since defended the headline, according to Yahoo News.
Yahoo News noted that Fox Nation closed the comments section of the website, as “many of the comments” were “offensive and inappropriate.”
