Fox Nation Reinforces Fox's Hypocrisy On Protests

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In accordance with Fox News' apparent policy of demonizing protests that target Republicans instead of Democrats, Fox Nation tonight called pro-union protesters "rabid leftists" and "frothing radicals."

Earlier today, Media Matters noted that Fox News, which in the past relentlessly promoted and encouraged the health care town hall protests that targeted Democrats, has now adopted the stance that citizens who protest at town hall meetings are a "mob" and not "civil," simply because Republicans are now the targets of ire.

The following descriptions of pro-union protesters were posted to the Fox Nation website and Twitter account:
