Rapper Nas protested outside of the FOX news headquarters yesterday afternoon. He has joined colorofchange.org and moveon.org to deliver 600,000 petitions against the FOX network in light of their many racist and unethical remarks about Obama, and blacks period. Nas told a reporter the following:
“Fox poisons the country with racist propaganda and tries to call it news.”
The network responded by saying:
“Fox News believes in all protesters exercising their right to free speech including Nas who has an album to promote.”
Last month, Fox News referred in a graphic to Michelle Obama, the wife of the Democratic presidential candidate, as “Obama’s baby mama.” Later, the network said a producer “exercised poor judgment” during the segment.
