Fox Promotes Coulter's Column Calling "Barack" A "Crazy Muslim"

Blog ››› ››› ANDY NEWBOLD

Today Fox Nation posted an excerpt of Ann Coulter's February 16 column, which states:

The Middle East is on fire again, and crazy Muslims with funny names aren't helping things -- Mahmoud, ElBaradei, al-Banna, Barack ...

The major new development is that NOW liberals want to get rid of a dictator in the Middle East! Where were they when we were taking out the guy with the rape rooms?

Coulter is not out of character with her radical remarks. After all, it wasn't that long ago that Coulter on Fox was pushing the myth that Obama "attended madrassas."

But its notable that Fox is promoting this. Just this week Fox News' Bill O'Reilly criticized David Gregory for even bringing the issue up in an interview with John Boehner because "The issue doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Sane clear-thinking people understand the President is not a Muslim." Bill O'Reilly has also repeatedly denied that Fox is "on a crusade to harm" Obama. Fox's record didn't support those claims in the least, and this certainly doesn't help.

For the record, Fox News has brought Ann Coulter into our living rooms at least 32 times in the past year according to Nexis - 15 of those were on O'Reilly's own show.
