    The same ignorance that see's racism in every comment one doesn't like. I couldn't agree more.

    Well Fox News is a professional news organization. A group of journalists that cover and convey a story with no bias. So it is unprofe....... oh wait. youre RIGHT! Fox News is highly biased and basically just mentions bit of news along with their opinion. So he should NOT have appologized! My bad!

    It's not respectful, and I can see why some might conclude that an apology is necessary (although, as has been pointed out, he didn't really apologize, which is just obnoxious). Having said that, I like living in a country where we don't have to put our leaders on a pedestal. To be clear, I am in no way suggesting that this is a first amendment issue (b/c no state involvement).

    apdst is right. He didn't say anything wrong.

    however he should've been prepared to get killed for saying what he did. (not literally).
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So, it really doesn't have anything to do with what was said and more to do with the news org the reporter belongs to. I guess I already knew that.

    Here is what President Reagan said when the President of Gabon father visited the White House. Would Bolling have made the same comments?

    The Fox Business Network is mostly a professional run network (excellently ran) kinda like most local fox affiliates.

    The only bias I see on fox, is fox news network, the cable channel. That being said, I think that an apology was warranted and just move on along with the excellent business news of Fox Business Network. It’s really not that big a deal.

    Re: Fox Business host apologizes for using ‘language interpreted’ as racist: ‘We did

    I already addressed this subject in the media bias section of the forum, but will be glad to rewrite it here:

    That was not an apology for "racist language" as the article you posted claims. It was an apology for being disrespectful towards the office of the president, by using hip-hop slang to describe a meeting between Obama and Ali Bongo at the White House.

    The whole hip-hop spin came about because of the last controversial guest he invited to the White House, hip-hop artist and rapper Common, who was used in the promo that aired for that show. Common is a big fan of the Black Panthers and has recorded songs praising domestic terrorists and cop killers. He even named his daughter after convicted murderer Assata Shakur, who fled to Cuba to avoid prosecution... So as far as I'm concerned, he is nothing but a glorified street thug.

    Bollin and FBN's use of the hip-hop slang was nothing more that an attempt to be funny based on Common's invite to the WH a few months ago and relate it to Bongo's visit last week. In my opinion it was distasteful and disrespectful toward the president, but certainly wasn't racist.

    The truth is, the most interesting thing about that story from yahoo, is the fact the headline says one thing and the article itself says something totally different. The headline states that Bollin apologized for "language interpreted as racist", which accurately implies that some people see it that way, but Bollin himself does not... While the story itself, right in the first paragraph, states that Bollin apologized for "using racist language", which falsely implies to readers that Bollin admited he did in fact use racist language, and publically apologized for doing so.

    That's the real story here folks... Not this latest episode of "Liberals pull the race card to falsely smear the right".

    I was in and out of the News, Reporting and Radio Business for a very long time, and as i see it Fox News come closest to living up yo their motto of being fair and balanced, because they report on Republicans that are involved in wrong doing as much as they cover Democrats.

    The rest of the media can't say that because doe example they never cover Obama's lies, and he's been caught in over 150 so far. Some also had limited coverage of the Weiner debacle

    Your first paragraph is pretty spot on the second is pure bull****...as usual.
