Do you not realize that you "noticing" such a thing defines a bias against Fox.

 

We all see what we want to see. If you see something about white women getting raped as a Fox "event" - so be it.


actually its spotting trends. just hit that link and read the headlines matched to the source. 

 

One of the difference between conservatives and liberals is they see a picture differently. Liberls see the big picture, conservatives the small one. 

Imagine a movie..that you have to watch frame by frame. A conservative will see one frame and call that the fact of the movie. it seldom is.

So it begins.

As Florida gears up to be hit by the next massive hurricane of this season, an analysis of conservative media coverage during Hurricane Harvey shows that many outlets spread overblown and often-times false narratives about black looters in the hard-hit city of Houston, Texas.

 

The analysis, conducted by Media Matters, shows that hosts and guests on Fox News and InfoWars propagated thinly-veiled stories about looters in Houston despite the city’s police department itself stating that “looting [was] almost non existent” during Harvey. The city reported 14 arrests on August 30 — a low number, the analysis notes, for a metropolitan area of more than six million people.

 

Nevertheless, Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson had Republican congressional candidate Dan Bongino, a former police officer, on his show on August 30 to discuss the issue.

 

“What kind of like certifiable savage man-beast do you need to be to walk into a small business [and loot]?” Bongino said during the segment.

 

On the same day, Griff Jenkins, a correspondent on President Donald Trump’s “favorite program” Fox & Friends, said Houston looters were “criminals that have unleashed the worst that humanity has to offer.”

 

Meanwhile, InfoWars’ Alex Jones trafficked an even more blatantly false and racist story when he claimed that Houston saw a proliferation of “black gangs” deliberately robbing white people.

 

“[They’re] saying, ‘Look at what we looted, look at what we got,'” Jones claimed on August 29. “They’re putting it on Twitter, ‘We’re robbing the white folks, they deserve it.'”

 

Soon after, Snopes documented outlets — both right-wing and more mainstream — retweeting and discussing posts under the Twitter hashtag “#HarveyLootCrew.” Their investigation revealed that two Twitter accounts posing as black men in Houston who claimed to be looting neighborhoods populated by presumably white “racist Trump supporters” were, in fact, fake.

 

“It isn’t difficult to discern the motivation behind these fake tweets,” the Snopes report states, “which were obviously created to sow fear and racial hatred in a time of crisis.”

Sadly, these whities who should feel "guilt", don't.  They'll do anything they can to perpetuate racist lies......not surprisingly, they are Conservatives, lying for the Conservative Way.....pathetic pieces of trash.


You sure do seem to have anger issues.  Maybe if you stayed away from RAW and Media Matters for a few days, it might help.


It's not anger, "rk", it's pity for the racist idiots.  No need to confuse the two, they look nothing alike.


"Racist idiots" - nice. Are they the liberals who consider minorities as unable to make it in our world without their "compassionate" "Massas"?

1) Carlson was broadcasting a defense of an ABC reporter. So, you can get off of your Fox kick.

2) Do you suppose Carlson photoshopped that video. How about the videos of other cases of looting - during riots for example?

 

It was less than a five minute segment - you are obsessing. Again, I suspect it is the hatred thing. In this case Fox.


no, Fox is obsessing. note the news outlets in this search.

The initial Fox item was about the disgusting nature of assuming that other peoples property is yours for the taking and it was about small businesses getting looted. I personally feel that is something worth "obsessing" about - don't you??

yes. 

 

the topic broken down is Fox is racist in its coverage. 

here is a simple search, not mentioning Fox or racism. I noticed the news from fox outlets was designed to denigrate minorites and tug on the fear that whites have of white women getting raped by a minority. Even the NPR article shows this..in the Police Chiefs statements. us against them. Its driving an ingrained narrative. Black guy looting, white people finding.

The issue is "racism" not "depth of reporting". So, again - can you justify calling Fox racist for showing that film clip??

 

In honest discussion, Ergo and QED are preceded by some logic, some proof of the allegation.

 


By the same token, can you call FOX sexist; based on Roger Ailes decades long sexual dalliances, Bill O'Reilly's departure, and Eric Bolling's suspension? Can you call FOX sexist because they are willing to let a few million be paid here, and few firings there, and a huge legal team to handle their unusual work culture?

 

Yes, you can.

 

As with most things, the old saying "where there is smoke, there is fire" applies. If video is tailored to make a specific false premise seem true; then that video becomes evidence of intention. You can't just pretend they didn't use it.

 

Because you see, that's what FOX does as a FALSE NEWS NETWORK they enhance their verbiage with out of context video in order to "PROVE" their verbiage. Bannon and Brietbart use the same bastardization of journalism.


Many words, little meaning. Let's get back to  the basics.

 

Someone at ABC sent a message about looting. Carlson took that and created a less than 5 minute segment. And now, he is a racist because.......well, now it gets a bit fuzzy. I think it is becasue the footage showed black looters.

 

Now, I don't know if the claim is that Carlson photoshopped the footage, but other than that, where is the racism??
