Fox News Hires Supporter of Jeremiah Wright and Derrick Bell

Fox News Hires Supporter of Jeremiah Wright and Derrick Bell

Santita Jackson, Daughter of Jesse Jackson

Cliff Kincaid

Fox News is once again moving to the left, hoping to avoid left-wing attacks on its news operations and commentators...

...Jackson’s bio describes her as a founding contributor to The Grio, a website dedicated to black news and opinion owned by MSNBC and which is produced in cooperation with NBC News. She lists The Grio as being among her other activities and links to a description of the site....

Hence, Fox News is sharing personnel with a rival network, another indication of the channel’s move to the left.

It is apparent that the left-wing attacks on Fox News, many of them directed through the Soros-funded Media Matters group, have taken their toll.

...Don Irvine noted that “Jackson will join a growing legion of left-wingers at Fox that includes Jehmu Greene and Sally Kohn. Greene is the former president of the Women’s Media Center, which was founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, and Kohn is a former senior strategist for the Soros-funded Center for Community Change.”...

The only thing I watch on FOX is Neil Cavuto, other than that I get my news from the Internet.

No problem for me; I quit watching FOX almost a year ago. Let them continue their leftward tilt. I hope they become as irrelevant as the rest of the LSM.

I hope they take it in the pocketbook for their dumb decisions.

Irvine added, “Fox’s moves to beef up its liberal lineup continue to confound conservatives who see no need for the top-rated cable news network to give liberals even more of a voice than they currently have. They already have MSNBC and CNN, along with the rest of the mainstream media. If this hiring trend continues, Fox runs the risk of alienating its conservative audience to the point that they will look elsewhere for their news, and eventually end Fox’s long run as the top cable news network.”

Some people are just plain dumb. Look at all the republican office holders who actually believe by being liberal they can get liberal votes. Why should a liberal vote for a republican liberal when they have plenty of democrat liberals to vote for.

Same goes for Fox. Do they think liberals will watch them when they have msnbc and cnn and all the letter networks to watch?

As for me, I can’t stomach them.

The sudden leftward shift might have something to do with the DOJ investigating Murdock. What a shame to see Fox News self destruct like this. The Left must be tickled pinko.

What the hell is “fair and balanced”? Was not a reporter supposed to report the TRUTH?

Add Santita and there is no “fair” or “balanced” crap. Aw Sh*t. I must be RACIST!....

[[Fox News is once again moving to the left, hoping to avoid left-wing attacks on its news operations and commentators]]

Wierd- because no matter how many lefties they hire, fox news is STILL goign to be attacked by the left- so hiring the enemy will do absolutely NOTHING to avoid criticism from the left- But apparently, like obama, fox thinks coddlign the enemy is the only way to go- Yay spinelessness!

Jesse Jackson’s daughter was named after a corn chip?

Nah, that’s one of them new-fangled white hispanics on the bag, probably related to Zimmerman.

They’re my brand too. Lowest price, no trans-fats and one of the lightest, as in thin and crispy, tortilla chips in the store. I guess Jesse likes them too!

Try wrapping the chips in arugula with a little salsa on the side... I understand it’s *delightful*.

Be sure to check your Bible and Gun to storage before consumption.

As far as I'm concerned, Fox can hear the "other side" of things by invited guests.
I was not impressed on April 6, having Megyn Kelly invite Three radical females on some controversial topic and NO conservatives of either sex.

If I wanted to listen to crap I can tune to MSNBC.
The Fox News Network slide has already begun.

As soon as he took office, Obama packed the FCC with his own stooges, then let us know that Fox News is “not news in the ordinary sense of the word”. The Obama admin was boycotting Fox to such an extent (excluding them from White House access, etc., that CBS-NBC-ABC-CNN had to make a show of defending Fox.

Fox News was moving left before all of the DOJ stuff. They were pushing celebrity sleaze as "news" for a long time, which is why I stopped watching them.

Plus the man who helped create Fox News and who has been running it for the last 16 years, Roger Ailes, is a huge supporter of Rudy Giuliani, plus he was the head of CNBC at one point.

And look at the rest of Murdoch's little empire - 20th Century Fox runs movies like Avatar and plenty of other liberal crap. The broadcast Fox TV network pushes a lot of celebrity/reality sleaze. Murdoch's holdings outside of the US push plenty of liberal crap.

Bringing in a bunch of leftists like Jackson is going to open up additional advertising revenue for Fox News. They'll be able to bring back advertisers they may have lost in the past, or that scaled back their advertising, and they'll be able to bring in new advertising.

Make yourself a clone of the other Leftist Channels. What a smart idea. NOT!!!

Fox's success was based purely on giving a moderate/conservative audience a place to get the news Libs refuse to report. Now Gretchen is schmoozing with Pee Wee Herman. His Obit is the only thing about him that would interest me.

Fox had a model that was killing the competition, based on calling out the Leftists. But the execs couldn't resist enticing Libs with liberal “analysts” spouting nonsense.

Well guess what, Fox? If I wanted Liberal lies, what better places to get it the MSNBCBSABC. I could watch The View, or The Talk. Why watch a Liberal FNC?

One more thing. Beautiful women spewing sewage is not beautiful. The more you look, the more you hear, the uglier they get. Gretchen needs a 6 month vacation to regain her self respect & sense of good & evil. Looks like she is spending more time on the tanning bed than in church.

Fox is not tilting left. By hiring leftists, they can highlight the stupidity of their arguments. They might also attract a few liberals who begin to see the light.

I wonder about pseudo-conservatives who are quick to throw other conservatives under the bus, for lack of absolute agreement on ALL issues. That’s the same as the goose-stepping leftists. Showing where leftism/socialism diverges from reason and empirical reality is the key to changing hearts and minds.

Twitter Hannity has more liberals on his radio program than I can stand. I quit listening to him. He always has liberals like Tamara Holder, Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, Ann Coulter plus many other that talk over each other. Hannity is an embarrassment. He is not a conservative.

Hannity is an embarrassment. He is not a conservative.

I wouldn't go that far. Here's an equation to explain the process of emasculation :

Money--->Fame and very comfortable life--->Threats to lose it and physical harm to him and family = an offer you can't refuse--->"Moderate" calling it Fair & Balanced--->et voila, everybody is happy EXCEPT REAL CONSERVATIVES!

This is how some “conservatives” turn on a dime and become eunuchs.

Got to hand it to old Jesse Jackson, the champion shake down artist, to get Fox to hire his daughter. Jackson’s shtick is going to major corporations to get their financial “aid” so he won’t accuse them of racism.

Off topic, but you know what amazed me on Friday? Bob Beckel witnessed to the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. I could barely believe it.

I agree with you about Sally Kohn and between her and Jemhu Greene and now this one, our mute / off button will be even more heavily used.
