Big Dan's Big News April 25, 2010

FOX "news", the news for the Confederacy, goes on a rampage defending racial profiling in Arizona...The Confederacy wants to "take their country back".

NEPA's WILK FOX "news" Jr. ignores bringing up this racial profiling in Arizona in relation to Hazleton's Lou Barletta, our own backyard racial profiler, even though he's always on WILK. They're too busy bashing Barletta's opponents for him, bashing Democrats and ignoring liberals.

Numerous Fox Newsers embrace and defend racial profiling aspect of AZ immigration law

I always find it ironic, that rightwing hatemeister Michelle Malkin is always jumping in on these racist things...AND SHE'S DARK-SKINNED AND ORIENTAL LOOKING! Does anyone else find this hilarious? She does look like she had some Michael Jackson skin-lightening treatments lately, based on this picture below. Maybe someone said something to her, along the line of: "Michelle, if you want to remain in rightwing media, you better start looking more WHITE and less ORIENTAL!!!"

Law and "racial profiling ... will go hand in hand" - Arizona Republic: Law "will require anyone whom police suspect of being in the country illegally to produce" immigration documents. An April 24 Arizona Republic article reported:

NY Times: "Opponents have called it an open invitation for harassment and discrimination against Hispanics."

Arizona Daily Star: "Racial profiling, SB 1070 will go hand in hand."

On the April 23 edition of his Salem Radio program, radio host and Fox News contributor Mike Gallagher told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, "Sign it, baby, sign it" and that the Arizona legislature is his "new hero."

Harassing Latinos with racial profiling isn't an inevitable side effect of Arizona's anti-immigration law -- it's the entire point.

Hey FOX "news" - how about a little Muslim-bashing to go along with your Hispanic racial profiling endorsement???

Fox News' recent rush to defend Rev. Franklin Graham, who described Islam as a "wicked" and "evil" religion, including hosting him on Fox & Friends, is just the latest example of Fox News' relentless crusade against Muslims. The network has a history of making controversial assertions about Muslims -- often by baselessly branding them as "terrorists" or "terrorist sympathizers" -- calling for profiling, or equating Islam and all of its adherents with radical extremists who claim to act in its name.

FOX "news" fundraises for the Republican Party - FoxPAC:

WIKIPEDIA: Roger Eugene Ailes (born May 15, 1940) is the American president of Fox News Channel and chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group. He was a media consultant for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H. W. Bush, as well as Rudy Giuliani’s first mayoral campaign in 1989.

The Republican Noise Machine

David Brock, the reformed conservative noise-maker, on how the Right has sabotaged journalism, democracy, and truth.

As a young journalist in the 1990s, David Brock was a key cog the Republican noise machine. Writing for the American Spectator, a conservative magazine funded by billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, Brock gained fame for his attack pieces on Anita Hill and President Bill Clinton. Then, in 2002, Brock came clean. In his memoir, Blinded by the Right, Brock admitted that his work was based on lies and distortion, and part of a coordinated smear campaign funded by wealthy right wing groups to discredit Clinton and confuse the public.

Since then, Brock has continued to expose the conservative media onslaught. In his newest book, The Republican Noise Machine, Brock documents how right-wing groups pressure the media and spread misinformation to the public. It's easy to see how this is done.

Fringe conspiracies and stories will be kept alive by outlets like Rush Limbaugh, the Washington Times, and the Drudge Report, until they finally break into the mainstream media.

Media groups like Brent Bozell's Media Research Center have spent 30 years convincing the public that the media is, in fact, liberal. As Brock says, it's all a sham: "I have seen, and I know firsthand, indeed from my own pen, how the organized Right has sabotaged not only journalism but also democracy and truth."
