Jaw-Dropper: Fox Affiliate in Orlando Calls Neo-Nazis a ‘Civil Rights Group’

Jaw-dropper of the day

What the hell is going on at Fox 35, the Fox News affiliate in Orlando, Florida?

Do you mean to tell me that nobody in the editorial chain for this story realized that they were not covering a “civil rights group” … but the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi organization that uses a swastika for their logo?

Really? Civil Rights Group Patrolling Sanford.

In this video of their broadcast, you can see this isn’t just a fluke headline — the anchor refers to the Nazis as a “civil rights group” by name.

“There’s another civil rights group in town: the National Socialist Movement.”

And you can also see that they went to the Nazis’ website, and must have looked directly at its swastika logo. In the whole clip there isn’t even a hint of the National Socialist Movement’s true nature, except when they interview one of the Nazis and he denies that they’re a hate group — an assertion that goes completely unchallenged.

Again: what the hell is happening at this news channel, that they can’t distinguish between a “civil rights group” and an armed gang of white supremacists and neo-Nazis? Un-freaking-believable.

UPDATE at 4/8/12 4:28:36 pm

Fox 35 Orlando has now deleted the page from their site, but the URL still shows the title, and the article is still showing up in their ‘Featured’ list with the “Civil Rights Group” headline.

UPDATE at 4/8/12 4:43:43 pm

Here’s the new version: White Rights Group Patrolling Sanford.

A “white rights group?” Is that supposed to be an improvement? These assholes are not speaking for my rights.

UPDATE at 4/8/12 5:23:59 pm

Yet another headline at Fox 35 finally gets it right: Neo-Nazi Group Patrolling Sanford.
