Quote of the Day
"Let’s just be blunt about this … I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist… They’ve been pushing a theme of black racism, this phony Black Panther crap, and this business… and Sotomayor and all this other stuff… The Republican party has got to stop appealing to its racist fringe… "
Howard Dean, on the Fox News coverage of Shirley Sherrod.
Fox News' Christ Wallace attempts to defend his networks coverage of the Sherrod story. Dean correctly points out that it does not matter whether or not Fox News aired the Sherrod video after she was fired. Dean said Fox News should have properly fact-checked the video. Newt Gingrich wisely stays out of the Wallace and Dean debate.
