Obama-bashing a new low for Fox

ObamaOn Jan. 19, Fox News’ morning show “Fox and Friends” took a turn for the worse when one of the most recent, inexcusable examples of yellow journalism and “Islamophobia” occurred by an attempted exploitation of presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama’s childhood.

Obama, a converted Christian, was smeared as a potential covert anti-American terrorist with the announcement that Obama had attended an Islamic madrassa more than 35 years ago while living with his Muslim stepfather in Indonesia.

Madrassa literally means “school” in Arabic, but Fox took this news as if Obama is a potential threat to America’s security as a potential president while continually announcing that Obama’s middle name is Hussein.

“Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy said the first thing they teach in madrassas is to “hate America” and said that Obama’s first 10 years of his life were spent in Indonesia hating America.
