Fox News’ Election Coverage: ‘New Black Panthers Engaging In Voter Intimidation’
With election day comes the usual fair and balanced reporting of Fox News.
Their current top story: New Black Panthers engaging in alleged voter intimidation at Philadelphia polling places. Again.
The Fox News Channel began election day on Tuesday by warning viewers about an alleged member of the New Black Panthers Party at one Pennsylvania polling place.
“This is a member of the Black Panthers standing guard outside a polling place in Philadelphia,” co-host Gretchen Carlson noted following the blaring “Fox News Alert” graphic.
“Does it look reminiscent?” she asked. “Remember this from four years ago. The organization said it was thinking about monitoring the elections. Critics say it’s more like intimidation. The Black Panthers also stood guard outside polling places, as I just mentioned, in 2008 in Philly, the group’s leader with a nightstick in his hand. It looks very similar.”
No mention of actual voter suppression, though.
Fair and balanced, right?
Is anyone surprised by Fox News at this point?
