Jesse Jackson’s daughter hired by Fox News

By Jeff Poor - The Daily Caller 7:46 PM 04/04/2012

On Wednesday, The Washington Examiner reported that the Fox News Channel has hired Santita Jackson, the daughter of Rainbow PUSH Coalition founder and president Jesse Jackson.

The report, which Fox News confirmed to The Daily Caller, says that she will debut Friday at 7:15 a.m. on “Fox & Friends.”

Santita Jackson had hosted a daily radio show on WVON 1690 AM in Chicago. According to its website, the station provides “an interactive forum for the African-American community to discuss current, social, economic, and political issues.” Jackson’s show airs 9 a.m. to noon local Chicago time.

Yeah. I guess “dangerous” is subjective. To me, most of FOX’s lefty commentators are harmless because they are so inept at presenting their arguments. But in a fertile setting anyone willing to lead could be dangerous. Even a lunatic like Charles Manson got followers.

” FOX was lost about 5 years ago. “

Yep, that is about when I broomed them.

"Pray Beck buys OWN on the cheap when Orkah goes chapter 11, until then we subscribe to him or just listen to talk radio and read."

Talk radio and reading, yes. Glenn "Newt-Gingrich-is-the-enemy-of-God" Beck, the hypocrite----not a chance.

Affirmative Action at it’s worst!

Sure, race is a reason here. But if it were just about race they could have picked a more qualified Black journalist.

Fox gave Robert F. Kennedy's very un-Black son a job, so something else is involved here as well.

BOR was unwatchable last night. Or, I should say "unthinkable", as I DID watch the show till the totally disgusting final segment. One cannot report back to FR without watching Factor travesties to the end.

It was ""Obammie Commie Night" with that hysterical leftist big yap, Juan Williams, hosting. He was in great left-wing radical form last night. Just think, he had free rein as host on the most watched host show in the nation, thanks to Fox....and he took full advantage of the opportunity.

The show was a complete Redfest with Juan, plus that commie perfesser, Mark Lamont Swill, plus a couple Marx-ettes, plus one of the nation's consumate conservative turncoats, Ben Stein, ending up with a horribly-unfunny taped skit with the Bloviator chumming it up again with that filthy-mouthed radical marxist twerp, Bill Maher.

O'Reilly (and Fox) has done more to pump up Williams, Maher, the subversive Red Perfesser, the socialist capitalist/capitalist socialist Geraldo Rivera plus all their regular commie ilk than Satan himself......plus making millionaires and household names out of all of them.

Is Friday night on Fox now "all commie propaganda, all the time"?

NO - but honest debate is something you never see on the other channels. Look at Matthew’s guests - Media Matters nutjobs - who needs that, they are propagandists.

They are echo chambers, boring as hell and I immediately change the channel.

I would so much want open and honest debate - and these shows shouldn’t be extremists agreeing with extremists.

If you have Ed Schultz talking to Van Jones - a viewer would get more intellectual benefit by listening closely to a dial tone for 2 hours.

I hope Jackson’s daughter has the intellectual firepower, not like Lamont Hill or Cornell West - who talk in circles and never make any sense!

Are you kidding? The guy is a communist revolutionary. He worships cop killers and maniac black racists. And to top it off, he's a professor at some university where he has influence over our kids. That's pretty clear-cut 'dangerous' to me and most other thinking people...I would hope.

When someone speaks to me, I like to look them directly in the eyes. That’s harder than hell to do with Lamont Hill.

Discounting the worldwide general public use of the Internet, where are the worldwide “all conservative, all of the time” TV channels, and where are the worldwide “all politically neutral, all of the time” TV channels? The worldwide demand for such TV channels has been ongoing for many decades and counting, but it never becomes a reality! The worldwide MSM and entertainment world continue to be “all left, all of the time”, with no end in sight, and this has been the case since day one!

MSNBC’s Journey From ‘News Network’ To Opinion Network

April 5th, 2012
Inside Cable News released an in-depth, multi-part report on MSNBC’s failed rebranding effort to a news and information destination in the dayside and the cable network’s subsequent rebirth into one dominated by progressive opinion and analysis.

Yes,
Since few watch Friday night they stay balance by loading their leftist views on Friday, Saturday afternoon and Sunday news slots.

NO YOU CAN’T had some strong points. That’s what I was waiting up to watch.

Fox needs some people for those point-counterpoint segments.
Not like they're giving her her own program for a full hour (or more!).

FNC is leaning more & more liberal.

They had Pee Wee Herman, a pervert if there every was one, on F&F the other day. I changed the channel & didn’t bother to go back.

The Jackson woman has no more credibility than her dad. I’ll be tuning her out, too.

OTOH both she and the Kennedy kid are just like teasers at the grocery. COME ON IN....BUY YOUR EGGS FOR A QUARTER...all of your other groceries will cost you double.

They can't convert/educate people if the teaser doesn't draw them into the program. Look how the use Sarah Palin.

It was Jon Stewart, not Bill Maher. I didn’t see that final segment but it looked stupid.

BOR had the long weekend. I figured FNC wasn’t worth watching last night after a little of watching Juan.

I should’ve posted that the teaser segments for the BOR / Stewart segment looked stupid.

Whatever is the name of that liberal black woman that is on much of the time....my husband absolutely refuses to watch her and either mutes it or changes the channel. She’s so firmly on the plantation that it’s painful to listen to her.

So, will we now have two liberal black women to apply the mute button to on Fox News? Way to go, FNC.....pfft!

You're correct....it was Jon Stewart, not Bill Maher, of course. My error. I DO know Maher....as well as I know every hair on my beautiful blond head.

Funny how the names of today's pathetic, un-funny comedians tend to blur in the brain. I never mixed up Bob Hope with Red Skelton.

Growing up around the Farrakhan worshiping Jesse Jackson Sr

Please provide links and data backing that up. I have never seen any reference to the fact that they are linked and that Jackson had or has a high opinion of Minster Farrakan, or am I missing something here. I often thought they were rivals

I for one, won’t be watching any segment she is a part of. In fact, if Fox wants to be part of the Jackson/Sharpton crowd and give them credibility, they can do it without my viewership.

February 25, 1984 In a speech given by Min. Farrakhan at a rally for Jackson, Min. Farrakhan noted the unusually bitter attacks on Jackson by Jewish leaders and organizations.

"He (BOR) doesn't know squat about the communist movement."

BOR is an educated man. He knows everything about the communist movement and its history....just as most of us do. He chooses to downplay it, shove it aside.

To him, it's no danger...at least not personally to himself and his assets.

He can never bring himself to publicly proclaim that the Marxist in the White House is a redistributionist communist. In actuality, he knows Obama is one. But he repeats over and over that Obama is personally a "good man" and not "evil" in his intentions toward our country.

Who knows what drives BOR's twisted ideology and Jekyll/Hyde views of our many domestic enemies? One thing we should know, he's a dangerous man who lulls uneducated viewers to sleep with his rudderless views and mixed messages masked by an intriguing style and a disarming leprechaun smile.

He gives work to radicals like the black commie perfesser and the blond commie perfesser....and others of their ilk. This constant exposure on his program enables these enemies of the state to gain "cachet", to brainwash more admiring students, to sell more books....and to earn big money in lecturing fees engendered by their "fame" as Factor contributors. O'Reilly's show lavishly and regularly feeds the mouths of these disguised professional propagandists who work to bite us and whose ideological missions are to undermine/destroy our country's foundations.

If O'R didn't have such a vast audience one could write him off as just another heavy-breathing telephone sex-whisperer....and as the hack tabloid TV reporter he was before he hit the big time. But, thanks to him, too many people are getting a dose of anti-American evil every night on Fox....and most don't even know it.

Let's face it....BOR's "fair and balanced" schtick is a cover for the softening-up of the American public in the ongoing power war.
