Black people, as we have discussed, do not like their Local Nightly News Casts. Unlike ESPN, which highlights Black people in one of the only endeavors they excel in (sports), nightly news casts shine a dis-nevering light upon the Black community.
"We have watched FOX News attack President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and Black America. Bill O'Reilly called for the death of murdered abortion doctor George Tiller only months before his death. Remember, too, it was the FOX-owned New York Post who printed the monkey cartoon. It was also FOX News who lashed out against Hurricane Katrina evacuees, arguing they were to blame for an increase in homicides. Yet, the network tried to cover up the incompetence of the Bush administration that led to the deaths of many Blacks in New Orleans."
In reality, Black people will never be able to forgive Fox News for that channel acted as a voice of propaganda for George W. Bush. Hurricane Katrina was a horrible moment for Black people, for it showed the world the reality of Being Black in America (contrast Hurricane Katrina with the massive flood in Iowa three years later).
"News Corp. is forming an external diversity council in response to pressure over a New York Post cartoon that critics said compared President Barack Obama to a dead chimpanzee.
The cartoon appeared in February. News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch published an apology in the Post, but civil rights and community organizations demanded further action.
