Another Saturday, another week over at Fox News for Liz Trotta to come on the air and spout something utterly ridiculous. This week, host Gregg Jarrett asked Trotta what she thought about the recent suspension of Pat Buchanan at MSNBC and naturally Trotta tried to downplay the racism in Buchanan's book.
Jarrett also asked Trotta if she thought there was a double standard at the network with the suspensions of both Don Imus and Pat Buchanan with the hire of Al Sharpton who now has a prime time show on the network and asked if MSNBC was making its hiring and firing decisions "through the prism of race."
TROTTA: Well, I don't think there's a double standard in the classical sense because MSNBC has become close to being a Communist channel. I mean, this is just outrageous. Little, by little, by little, they have moved all of the talent that they support so far left and no one will touch Al Sharpton for making anything that might be considered an anti-white comment. I mean, it just would not happen.
Jarrett did push back at Trotta's assertion a slight bit by calling Chris Jansing a unbiased reporter on there. Fox is turning into a bad parody of the Onion these days with these sort of segments. They just toss out hyperbole and labels without an ounce of concern for what any of them mean in the hope their hapless viewers who might take any of this seriously don't know the difference. And leave it to Liz Trotta to defend the indefensible with taking up for Buchanan.
