FoxNews and Racism

After the New Press Secretary (and former Fox 'journalist') Tony Snow made a reference to "tar babies" in his first televised press conference, I thought I'd find a few more examples of racism on FoxNews.

John Gibson, 5.12.2006

GIBSON: Now, it's time for "My Word." Do your duty. Make more babies. That's a lesson drawn out of two interesting stories over the last couple of days.

First, a story yesterday that half of the kids in this country under five years old are minorities. By far, the greatest number are Hispanic. You know what that means? Twenty-five years and the majority of the population is Hispanic. Why is that? Well, Hispanics are having more kids than others. Notably, the ones Hispanics call "gabachos" -- white people -- are having fewer.

To put it bluntly, we need more babies.
Who, exactly, is "we," John. FoxNews commentators? Americans? People with white skin?

And now Bill O'Reilly. 05.17.2006
[T]he newspaper [New York Times] and many far-left thinkers believe the white power structure that controls America is bad, so a drastic change is needed.

According to the lefty zealots, the white Christians who hold power must be swept out by a new multicultural tie, a Rainbow Coalition, if you will.

An open border policy and the legalization of millions of Hispanic illegal aliens would deeply affect the political landscape in America. That's what The New York Times and many others on the left want.
So it's not what you want, Bill? You don't want non-whites coming to America, changing the political landscape. America's supposed to be a white country, isn't it, Bill? I had a hunch that, underneath it all, that's what you thought.

Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee (Arkansas), Via the AP:
"If I were to say that some of it is driven by sheer racism, that would be true,"
I agree.
