FOX News Channel Commentators Completely Out of Control
FOX News Channel has long been tainted with overtones of right-wing political agendas, often offering up their own slightly skewed viewpoint of political officials. Their commentators are often good for a laugh, but in recent months the channel has done everything possible to discredit President Barack Obama. It seems FOX News still can’t get over the fact that he won the election - despite their repeated “mistakes” of calling him “Osama” and all their attempts to deny that he was even born in the U.S.
Glenn Beck made an appearance on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends to give his opinion: that the President is a racist. To be more clear, he stated that Obama has “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”
“The guy is, I believe, a racist,” said Beck.

But FOX News has quickly distanced itself from this claim. And why not? It’s not like they can wear it. Senior vice president Bill Shine said that Glenn Beck “expressed a personal opinion which represented his own views, not those of the FOX News Channel. And as with all commentators in the cable news arena, he is given the freedom to express his opinions.”
And this kind of thing is just par for the course for FOX News.
