Fox News Revives Black Panther Conspiracy to Smear Obama’s Labor Nominee
Fox News, and particularly host Megyn Kelly, have for years hyped the allegations of former Justice Department official and current Pajamas Media blogger J. Christian Adams, who insists that Perez lied under oath when he testified about the investigation into allegations of voter intimidation outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.
Adams was the attorney who originally tried to bring a case against a group of Black Panthers members, but it was dropped. One person ultimately faced a criminal charge stemming from the incident, but that wasn’t enough to dissuade Adams that some kind of racially-motivated conspiracy was taking place before his eyes.
Kelly brought that back up on Monday and wondered whether Perez should be trusted. Chris Stirewalt, host of foxnews.com’s “Power Play,” added that Perez is likely to face more questions about the case in the Senate because “Mr. Perez’s nomination to be in his current position was held up for many months as a consequence of that case and some other things.”
I think the Fox News presenter’s heads would explode if they were forced to do hard news and only hard news. KABLAM!!!
