Jeanine Pirro said a Muslim serving in Congress “is antithetical to the Constitution” — and things somehow got worse from there.



At a time when its exceedingly tight relationship with the Trump White House and promotion of white nationalism are under scrutiny, Fox News had a very bad weekend.

On Sunday night, Fox News’s public relations department released separate statements addressing two different debacles involving prominent network hosts.

The first one involved host Jeanine Pirro, who suggested during her Saturday evening show that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), one of America’s first Muslim female Congress members, is disloyal to the country because she wears a hijab.

In a rant ostensibly about controversial comments Omar recently made about Israel, Pirro said, “Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”




Less than 24 hours later, Media Matters for America published clips of radio interviews that host Tucker Carlson did on Bubba the Love Sponge’s show between 2006 and 2011 in which he makes a number of misogynistic and offensive comments — including defending Warren Jeffs, president of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, who is currently serving a life sentence in prison for child sexual assault.

In one clip, Carlson — referring to charges Jeffs faced for arranging marriages between adult men and girls — defended him by saying the charges were “bullshit” because arranged marriages with children are not “the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child. ... The rapist in this case has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different.”

In other clips, Carlson demeans sex workers as “slutty and pathetic” and says women are “extremely primitive, they’re basic, they’re not that hard to understand.”

Why would Omar consider going on a program hosted by someone clearly and undeniably hostile to her? That is ludicrous.

Fox News’s very bad weekend

Actually I enjoyed FOX News over the weekend very much.  Jesse Watters, Greg Gutfeld and Janine Pirro were all outstanding and entertaining.  Mark Levin was again outstanding on Sunday as well.

Right you are Dan, wvit is more than likely getting his instructions from media matters to attack Fox News, and the other democrats like the good little lemmings they are chime right in.

I would only encourage Representative Omar to appear on a "LIVE" telecast of any Fox News program.

The vast majority of the Fox News Network opinion shows are taped and edited.  Some deceptively do so.

I distrust the way Fox News Producers (and Hannity) edit interviews.  It's dishonest.

yeah, dan thinks it's fun to watch a channel so obviously in the bag for trump that they'll sink to just about any lows and let their celebrity talking heads says anything they want.   

isn't that kind of the mark of a dictatorship?   that the State controls the media and that the State and it's media work together?

Can Dan easily find South Carolina on a map and does he know the religion of the Dalai Lama? FOX viewers are more likely to struggle when asked what the Capitol of Canada is as well. FOX doesn`t make people stupid, it`s just a moron magnet.

Re: reply #2

It's easy to understand why anchoragedan enjoys watching fox "news." All the people he named are liars, just like he is.
