A Republican World – The “But We Need Someone To Show How Much Americans Need To Hate And Fear Big Government And A Racist Rancher Doesn’t Make Us Look Good” Edition – ‘Fox Goes Silent On Bundy After Racist Tirade’
Bundy’s public feud with the Bureau of Land Management over his refusal to pay grazing fees received extensive support from Fox News, which devoted nearly five hours of primetime coverage to the story’.
‘Sean Hannity provided him so much positive coverage, Bundy praised the Fox News host as a “hero.”
‘By noon on April 24, Fox had mentioned the rancher only twice, and never covered his racist comments’.
‘On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy drew a parallel between Bundy’s standoff and the situation of two Texas landowners, and Fox’s Andrew Napolitano told viewers to “forget the battle in Nevada” to focus on events in Texas instead’ and let’s hope their not ignorant racists too ’cause that sure makes us look like the idiots we are’.
