    they seldom referred to Clinton as President Clinton; it was one of the first things that I noticed about tFNC.

    Actually, it is OK  (and standard procedure) that they not call the President "President Obama": at all times.

      but I'm pretty sure I very seldom heard "Mr. Bush" during GWB's reign.

      Gee, whatever happened to "respect the office, if not the man"?

      Not to quibble, Chitown Kev; it is but one small 'tell' from this noxious propaganda machine.

      "Space Available" is the largest retail chain in the nation.

        they've never respected the Democratic President. Well, Faux news hasn't anyway

        To call him a "ghetto crackhead" (or to say that he looks like one) yes, that is racist, of course.

        But...these were some of the same people that called Virginia Clinton "white trash" just as they did Stanley Ann Dunham.

        Also, yes, they have been guilty of racism against the president's daughters but still, when it came to criticizing even Chelsea Clinton the volume was turned up very high (and I vaguely remember the Right Wing doing the same with Amy Carter)
