Freddie Gray's Attorney Calls It: Says Fox News Is Entirely Racist

And he said it on Fox News!

Billy Murphy, the attorney for Freddie Gray's family, let Fox News in on the secret during an appearance on Greta Van Susteren's show.

We've been saying for years now that Fox News is racist in their coverage and approach. From the days of Glenn Beck claiming President Obama was racist to their shameful coverage of poor folks to the way they demonize people like Freddie Gray, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown, it's obvious to anyone objective that they have real issues with race, stemming from Roger Ailes right down to jackasses like Jesse Watters.

But Murphy let them have it:

“If I think that the whole network’s approach to the black community is racist and that’s a relevant thing to say during this program, I can’t say it?” Murphy asked Van Susteren at one point.

“We were in court every single day,” she replied. “Look, I know you very well. I know the way you’re trying to play this; I got the picture. I wasn’t born yesterday. I got that. But if you have a problem with my show, tell me.”

“I haven’t stated a problem with your show, if you listen carefully to me,” Murphy shot back, just before she ended the discussion.

Unfortunately, Fox viewers will not have ears to hear what he said. They'll be too busy pretending they're just fine upstanding conservative citizens. No more, no less.
