So besides the few times I’ve glanced at the unchangable monitors in the doctors office, or at the gym, I can honestly say I very rarely watch Fox news under my own control. Well, I guess I’m not the only one. According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News has averaged just 29,000 black viewers in primetime so far this television season (9/09-7/10). It’s probably safe to say a majority of those 29k are those just like me forced to watch it, or the family members of Fox’s limited African-American reporting staff.

Rush Limbaugh Calls George Steinbrenner A “Cracker” who “Made African Americans Millionaires” [FULL AUDIO]July 14th, 2010 | By hiphopdemocrat in Entertainment, News, Political, Social Issues | 9 Comments »
Rush Limbaugh just doesn’t know when to quit. Speaking on the death of New York Yankee’s owner George Steinbrenner, Limbaugh stated,
“That cracker made a lot of African Americans millionaires,” Limbaugh said on his morning show Tuesday. “And at the same time he fired a bunch of white guys.”
He also called Steinbrenner the “classic capitalist” as he also made everyone around him rich.
Rev. Al Sharpton responded to the comments which Limbaugh thought were some type of eulogy stating his words were “repugnant and offensive whether they were intended to be facetious or tongue and cheek.”
