Fox Allows "Magic Negro" Scroll To Be Broadcast During New Years Celebration

Here’s just another example of the  “fair and balanced” news that is broadcasted by the Fox News Channel. Whomever allowed this scroll message to slip by should be held accountable.

Throughout last night’s New Year’s eve broadcast, Fox News Channel allowed viewers to send in New Year’s greetings and wishes via text message. The messages were then scrolled across the bottom of the screen, replacing Fox’s normal crawling news headlines. While most messages were cordial, Fox allowed at least one racist message directed toward President-elect Obama to be broadcast. The message referenced Rush Limbaugh’s “Barack the Magic Negro” song: 

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND LET’S HOPE THE MAGIC NEGRO DOES A GOOD JOB. LOVE JEN AND JOHN C.

See for your self, watch the video
