Fox News site calls Obama party a 'Hip-Hop BBQ' (Party had Hip-Hop celebrities and BBQ)
msnbc ^ | 8/5/2011 | BRIAN STELTER/ny times

Posted on 08/05/2011 9:31:21 PM PDT by tobyhill

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.

“Obama’s Hip-Hop BBQ Didn’t 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.

I guess to the NY Slimes and MSNBC no one is allowed to use accurate titles because some people may have some borderline inappropriate comments.

I have yet to hear anyone speaking about an evening of Bach, Brahms and Beethoven at the WH. Let alone Debussy or Tschaikovsky.

Obama’s internal polling must be bad for them to use the race card this soon.

It was very generous of McConnell and Boehner to make sure the debt-ceiling crisis didn’t interfere with the party.

Your title of this article: "Fox News site calls Obama party a 'Hip-Hop BBQ' (Party had Hip-Hop celebrities and BBQ) "

"Hip-Hop BBQ" means a "party" that "had Hip-Hop celebrities and BBQ" - really?

Get out of town! WHO KNEW?

Honestly, I would never have gotten that without your help! Thanks so much for making that title and the article so much more understandable.

FoxNews.com, which is owned by the News Corporation

And the MSNBC majority (80%) stockholder is who? G.E.? Who's CEO is a buddy of Obama? A company that paid $0 taxes on $14 BILLION PROFITS?

Obama’s entire political repertoire consists of the race card.

Interesting. I had wondered if there had been any reports about Obama being a drinker after reading in The Bible, in the book of Habakkuk what seems to be about the antiChrist, that he would be a drinker. Much of the rest of the context sure reminds me of Obama.

Hab 2:3 For the vision [is] yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Hab 2:4 ¶ Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Hab 2:5 ¶ Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, [he is] a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and [is] as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
