Newshounds Exit 2011 With Another Lie
What sort of ‘attack’ did Fox Nation come up with? Oh it’s pretty bad:
Fox Nation Attacks Kwanzaa
Quite a vicious attack, isn’t it? Only there’s a catch. What Sharia Ellen doesn’t want you to know, and therefore omits from her smear, is that the headline in question, and in fact the entire article that follows it, was not written by Fox Nation, but rather by The Root! It’s not like Brodsky doesn’t know that--it’s right there in plain sight on the very page she linked to! What, you ask, is The Root? It is:
A recent post “asks,” Who Celebrates Kwanzaa? followed by the comment, “The results of a reader poll suggest that the holiday may be past its prime.” As if Fox Nation readers are in any position to judge.
So these are the people Brodsky is smearing as racists?
the leading online source of news and commentary from an African-American perspective. Founded in 2008 under the leadership of Prof. Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard University, The Root offers a unique take on breaking news, provides solid analysis and presents dynamic multimedia content.
Aha! Brodsky has now indicted the Washington Post’s premier black news operation as perpetrators of a racist attack on Kwanzaa! But wait, there’s more:
The Root raises the profile of black voices in mainstream media and engages anyone interested in black culture around the world. The Root is owned by the Washington Post Company.
Another Brodsky Lie! Since the article was written by The Root, the survey was not of Fox Nation readers as Sharia Ellen well knows, but of the predominately black readership of The Root. You know, like these people that Ellen didn’t tell you about either.
“The results of a reader poll suggest that the holiday may be past its prime.” As if Fox Nation readers are in any position to judge.
It’s comforting to know that as we enter a new year, we’ll still be getting the same venom, smears, and outright lies from Brodsky and her congenital fabulists at the kennel. Where hatred never sleeps.
