Well, we can add another show to the list where Fox is hyping their phony New Black Panthers scandal. Syndicated columnist and Fox News Watch regular Cal Thomas took his turn today and when asked about the NAACP's criticism of the racism in the Tea Party, responded by asking why the Civil Rights organization wasn't paying attention to their drummed up scandal instead.

Thomas: Well the NAACP doesn’t have George Bush to kick around any more so they’ve got to get some attention somehow. And apparently the only way they can get it from the media is to play the race card. But let’s see, have they condemned the New Black Panther Party yet about killing cracker babies. I… did I miss that resolution?

And yes, sadly, someone actually pays this man to write his opinions in newspaper columns across the country week after week.

Can you help us out?
