Fox News Plays Benghazi Commercial Over Khzir Khan's Anti-Trump Speech At The DNC

Fox News Plays Benghazi Commercial Over Khzir Khan's Anti-Trump Speech At The Democratic National Convention
Fox News Plays Katy Perry Song After Khan Leaves Stage
Blog July 28, 2016 11:22 PM EDT ZACHARY PLEAT


Fox News ignored a speech by the father of U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in 2004 in the Iraq war, instead opting to air commercials during the speech. Fox later went live to a song by pop singer Katy Perry after the speech.

2. Fox News is fair and balanced.

Fair and balanced (from the perspective of a racist)

3. So it should be obvious even to themselves

that they are biased. They can't handle listening to the other side.

4. That speech by a Constitution loving immigrant muslim american who's son gave his life for this country

 

Totally destroys everything Fox news, the republican party and Trump stand for!

They will run and hide from it because they have no answer or argument against it!

5. Looks like they'll remain totally foul without Ailes

but that's no surprise. They'll just get a lot clumsier about it.

6. They just talked about it on the air

They played a few short clips and then got the Washington Examiner writer to come on and rebut it. Basically it was powerful, BUT

It got too political and they can't help thinking about how when Khan says Trump has sacrificed nothing and no one...what has Bill Clinton ever sacrificed? Are you fucking kidding me?

Also said still doesn't change the terrorist problem. Basically, a racist argument if you think about it. Oh, there may be a few "good ones", but overall ban the shit out of them.

Fuck you Fox News.
