Sarah Silverman Calls Out Fox News Over Racism
Comedian Sarah Silverman has gotten into it with Fox News over the conservative network’s “24-hour-a-day racism engine.”
Huffington Post reports on Silverman’s criticism of Fox in her book “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee.”
“The entire Fox News Channel is a 24-hour-a-day racism engine, but it’s all coded, all implied,” she wrote (via NewsBusters). “Lou Dobbs used to scream on CNN about ‘immigration,’ not ‘filthy Mexicans.'”
Silverman also gives a piece of her mind to the right wing and the tea party.
“Right-wing Americans who appear in mainstream media are not out there calling black people ‘n*ggers,’ or saying, ‘The Klan has good ideas,'” she wrote. “Instead, they’re questioning the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency by accusing him of being born in Africa or of being a Muslim. Or they’re having tea parties and calling Obama a ‘communist’ and a ‘Nazi.'”
