To most news Web sites, what happened at the White House on Thursday night was a private 50th birthday party for President Obama. To an editor at Fox News, it was something a little different.
Obamas Hip-Hop BBQ Didnt Create Jobs, read the headline on an article on The Fox Nation,a conservative arm of FoxNews.com, which is owned by the News Corporation. Below the headline were photos of Mr. Obama and, separately, three black celebrities who attended the party, the basketball player Charles Barkley, the comedian Chris Rock and the rapper Jay-Z.
Not pictured were any attendees of other racial backgrounds, like the actor Tom Hanks or Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago.
The article, published Friday morning, generated more than 2,000 comments and substantial objections from people who found it to be inaccurate at best and racist at worst. Media Matters for America, a progressive group that campaigns against Fox, asserted that the article was part of a pattern of race-baiting headlines and content on the Web site.

What is really hypocritical is that MSNBC was the same network that edited out Black People to sell their debunked point that the Tea Party was suppose to be full of racist. Turn about is fair play.

That new Tom Hanks’ Hip Hop album is outstanding.
Fox didn’t do anything but dscribe it accurately.
I have yet to hear anyone speaking about an evening of Bach, Brahms and Beethoven at the WH. Let alone Debussy or Tschaikovsky.
A hip hop BBQ sounds like fun.
I really like that song ,”Run Forest, Run”.
Yet the Vice president of the United States calls concerned citizens terrorists....and they yawn...
No. Not hip hop, and sure as shootin’ not with Obamby.
It was very generous of McConnell and Boehner to make sure the debt-ceiling crisis didn’t interfere with the party.
Palin, not Obama.
I’m sure Lil Wayne was there.

Honestly, I would never have gotten that without your help! Thanks so much for making that title and the article so much more understandable.
I’m glad I could clarify it for you.
Man, that Tom Hanks is GOOD, he looks just like
Bamby’s news network sure has their panties in a bunch!
