Ham-fisted Racism at Fox Sports

You’re already thinking everything I could possibly say about this one, which makes it that much worse that it actually emerged from an editorial process at Fox Sports. Fox has now apologized and pulled the video from its website after The Daily Camera reported on it.

This is one of the most overtly racist things I’ve seen from the Murdoch media—and that’s saying something.

Heads should roll.
