Video of the Day: Insanely Racist Fox News Report

I’m not defending factory workers smoking weed and drinking alcohol during their lunch break, but the editing on this Fox News report about the behavior of some workers in a Detroit factory is breath takingly racist. Shot like a hip hop video with a sound track to match, the report looks like a Klu Klux Klan propaganda video rather than a serious piece of journalism. The lazy good-for-nothing blacks sit around getting high while a bumping dance beat plays in the background – the classic depiction used to whip up white resentment in middle America.

I’m amazed even Fox would air something as brazenly offensive as this:

Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
