Rachael Maddow:

Fox News has run with a few different stories this year that they really pushed all on their own. They weren’t mainstream news stories — they weren’t even news, really. They were Fox agenda items, all following a very, very similar narrative. There was the Van Jones controversy, with Fox morphing the president’s renewable-energy policy expert into an ex-con who served time after the Rodney King race riots — not true. The other great Fox News crusade of the past year was against ACORN, an almost all-minority community organizing group which Fox characterized as stealing taxpayer money and an election. More recently, Fox News has crusaded against the New Black Panther Party, after video surfaced of two wackjob blacks at a polling station during the 2008 election. The Bush Justice Department investigated and found that the wackjobs hadn’t intimidated voters that day, and Fox News has continued running the same footage over and over and over again.

The message? They’re coming for you, white people. They’re coming for you. Black people are coming for you, to take what’s yours.
