John Gibson compares Attorney-General Eric Holder, an African-American, to a chimpanzee.
Sure, the video is technically, quote-unquote, “fake,” but it still illustrates how racist the Fox News Channel really is. (HuffPo commenter “SouthernYankeeBelle”: “I dunno if it is true or not. However, we know the mentality of the republican party. I could be true. Talk about doctored videos, the Bush administration were good at doctoring videos to get us into this war with Iraq…”)
Update: the Huffington Post has admitted its error and apologized. But some readers keep the faith:
Whether or not the video was doctored or not, I think it is still a major indictment of Fox news that the possibility of the clip being authentic was within the realm of possibility. Many people believed it because of Fox’s tendency to play fast and loose with the truth. And that’s a Fact!!!
