Arriving in Paris

Posted by Media Outrage on September 19, 2008

Rihanna was spotted arriving at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris yesterday. Rihanna was named #2 on People Magazine’s best dressed list. Michelle Obama came in at #8. We’re glad all that shopping RiRi does accounted for something.

Man of the People

Posted by Media Outrage on July 23, 2008

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama and his beautiful family are featured on August’s issue of People Magazine, in which they offer rare insight into their Chicago home. Political issues aside Barack definitely has the charisma steez on lock as it pertains to he and old ass McCain. They’re definitely looking like the First Family to us. Props to Barack and Michelle for brushing the hundreds of political haters off.

Part of his interview with People:

PEOPLE: Someone told me today that you don’t do birthday presents.
Michelle: No, because we spend hundreds of dollars on a birthday party and movie tickets and pizza and popcorn …
Barack: That sleepover is enough. We want to teach some limits to them. And their friends bring over presents.
Michelle: They get so much stuff that it just becomes numbing. Malia believes there is still a Santa Claus even though she’s a little wary because some of her friends are non-believers. But Malia says, “Ma, I know there is a Santa because there’s no way you’d buy me all that stuff.” [Laughing] Read the rest of this entry »

What kind of news outlet does this?

Posted by Media Outrage on June 13, 2008

FoxNews has definitely stepped, hop skipped, and pole vaulted over the line with this one. Check the caption at the bottom of the screen that reads “Stop Picking ON OBAMA’S BABY MAMA!” What can be said about a supposed credible news outlet that continues to show flagrant disrespect to a Presidential candidate and his family? This media outlet has already showed time and time again that when it comes to journalistic integrity, they are completely devoid of it. We wonder why other mainstream news outlets are not calling them on their racist nonsense. To see all the many times recently that FoxNews has stepped out of pocket click here, and here, and to see one of the most blatantly foul ones click here.

Star Jones checks Bill O’Reilly’s racist remark

Posted by Media Outrage on February 28, 2008

Star Jones and Bill O’Reilly

Star Jones recently spoke out against racist FoxNews commentator Bill O’Reilly because of remarks that he made about Michelle Obama.

What Bill O’Racist said……

Bill O’Reilly was talking to a caller on his show about comments that Michelle Obama recently made stating that “For the first time in my adult life, I’m really proud of my country.” The caller was angered by her comments. Bill O’Racist then proceeded to add his KKK spin to it.

“I don’t want to go on a Lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there’s evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels. If that’s how she really feels- that is a bad country or flawed nation whatever- then that’s legit. We’ll track it down.”

Mediaoutrage- SMH at this guy he’s still gonna win MRMOYA. Most Racist Man Of The Year Award. He can just sit out the rest of the season because he’s winning by a landslide.

Star Jones response….

“I’m sick to death of people like Fox News host, Bill O’Reilly, and his ilk thinking that he can use a racial slur against a black woman who could be the next First Lady of the United States, give a half-assed apology and not be taken to task and called on his crap.

What the hell? If it’s ‘legit,’ you’re going to ‘track it down?’ And then what do you plan to do? How dare this white man with a microphone and the trust of the public think that in 2008, he can still put the words ‘lynch and party’ together in the same sentence with reference to a black woman; in this case, Michelle Obama? I don’t care how you ’spin it’ in the ‘no spin zone,’ that statement in and of itself is racist, unacceptable and inappropriate on every level.

O’Reilly claims his comments were taken out of context. Please don’t insult my intelligence while you’re insulting me. I’ve read the comments and heard them delivered in O’Reilly’s own voice; and there is no right context that exists. So, his insincere apology and “out-of-context” excuse is not going to cut it with me.

And just so we’re clear, this has nothing to do with the 2008 presidential election, me being a Democrat, him claiming to be Independent while talking Republican, the liberal media or a conservative point of view. To the contrary, this is about crossing a line in the sand that needs to be drawn based on history, dignity, taste and truth. Bill, I’m not sure of where you come from, but let me tell you what the phrase ‘lynching party’ conjures up to me, a black woman born in North Carolina . Those words depict the image of a group of white men who are angry with the state of the own lives getting together, drinking more than they need to drink, lamenting how some black person has moved forward (usually ahead of them in stature or dignity), and had the audacity to think that they are equal. These same men for years, instead of looking at what changes, should and could make in their own lives that might remove that bitterness born of perceived privilege, these white men take all of that resentment and anger and decide to get together and drag the closest black person near them to their death by hanging them from a tree — usually after violent beating, torturing and violating their human dignity. Check your history books, because you don’t need a masters or a law degree from Harvard to know that is what constitutes a ‘lynching party.’
