Even Fox News Is 'Denouncing' Breitbart As Sexist For Pelosi 'Twerking' Photo

A Breitbart advertising campaign that featured a photoshop of House Minority Leader (D-CA) Nancy Pelosi on singer Miley Cyrus' twerking body last week had even Fox News calling the conservative publication sexist and hypocritical.

A Breitbart advertising campaign that featured a photoshop of House Minority Leader (D-CA) Nancy Pelosi on singer Miley Cyrus' twerking body last week had even Fox News calling the conservative publication sexist and hypocritical.

The advertising campaign for its new west coast website included photoshopped images of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg's head on a woman's exposed breasts, and California Gov. Jerry Brown's face on Arnold Schwarzenegger's body.

But it was the sexually-charged photo of Pelosi that had Democrats like DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz blasting Breitbart for being "foul, offensive, and disrespectful to all women."

On Sunday, Fox News host Howard Kurtz and media analyst Lauren Ashburn said that conservatives should also be repudiating the right-leaning website for the "gross" ad campaign.

"That is pretty low," Kurtz pointed out.

"And it's hypocritical," Ashburn agreed. "Can you imagine, if that were Sarah Palin, how crazy Breitbart News would have gone. Or any other conservative outlet. We need to stop putting women in this light."

"And I think that people on the right and the left should denounce this kind of ugliness," Kurtz concluded.
