Quote of the Day

Serwer on why blacks don't watch Fox News:

The most charitable interpretation of this is that FOX is an extremely partisan network, and black people tend to be the Democratic Party's most loyal constituency. The less charitable interpretation is that black people don't want to watch a network where the only time they see people who like them on the screen is when FOX is discussing racist, election-stealing idiots who can't wait to start a race war so they can get back at white people. Maybe black people don't want to watch a network where people are surprised at their ability to eat at a public restaurant without using the word "motherfucker," and people fret about the "loss of the white Christian male power structure."

But no that's silly. I'm sure it's the Democrats' fault somehow.

When the only time black people are discussed on Fox's, it's to complain about all the racial double standards that favor them, I can imagine they might find it sort of unwatchable.
