    From Media Matters:

    And this . . .

    And finally:

    I couldn't agree more. Stossel is an obvious racist. That's a given. But, as Media Matters so aptly asks: Where does Fox "News" stand on this issue?

    Surely, Fox will take steps to disassociate itself from Stossel and his racist comments.

    Surely . . . .

    Bullshit.

    Stossel is no racist. He's a libertarian. And Media Matters is on a mission to smear.

    I was unsure about that, considering it is Fox. However:

    John Stossel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I give credit where it is due, he is a Libertarian.

    In addition, I am glad he is not for repealing the entire Civil Rights Act like some are. I can understand where he is coming from this, and he is certainly not being a hypocrite as it is consistent with his views.

    I'm of the opinion that if a place is racist, let them be racist, but let them have a nice big sign up about who they refuse to serve and or hire. If they don't follow said guidelines and try to get around them, they'll get fined. Simple as that. I rather not give my money to a establishment that the profits will go to racists.

    Obviously in some parts of the country this will work better than others.

    Does he work for fox or msnbc?


    Fox fans are racist right along with this idiot who supports him.

    Agree?

    I'm sorry - I interpreted his comments on this issue as racist. Seems to me, anyone who is stumping for the "right" of private business to discriminate on any basis they choose, is espousing a position that opens the door for racial discrimination.

    Your thoughts on that?

    Not all Fox fans are racist, I'm sure. But I'm willing to bet that most racists are Fox fans.

    I didn't say he wasn't a libertarian. I said he was a racist. His comments are clearly racist - no one can deny that.

    You haven't commented on the real point of the OP - what about Fox News? Where does that leave them?

    Well?

    Yes, it opens the door to racial discrimination without legal remedy, but as Modbert points out (and as I pointed out on a similar thread) the public would readily know where NOT to spend their money.
