In what must be the most despicable, unprofessional news article that I have ever read on Faux News... The front page of FoxNews.com shows an article titled "Obama Gets 'Panther' Ok". They point to a public profile set up by somebody claiming to be a member of the New Black Panther Party who supports Barack Obama.
Here's the problem- anybody can set up a profile and blog on the my.barackobama.com section of the website claiming support of Obama. There is no way to tell if this came from the 'black panther party', and even if it did, Obama's campaign has absolutely nothing to do with it, no control of it, and no knowledge of it when it is posted.
Fox is hellbent on portraying Obama as a black vigilant. This, after his speech yesterday in which he sought to begin an honest and healing discussion of race relations in our country. It is disugsting that Fox would stoop this low.

Update- Fox has now changed the story to say that the campaign removed the endorsement. Unfortunately I didn't copy and paste the original article. It was awash in falsehoods.
For fun, I set up a profile for Sean Hannity. It appears that he, too, is a HUGE Obama supporter!
We need to DEMAND an apology and retraction from Fox News. This is just unnacceptable. Sorry for the short diary, I'm in a hurry.
Update- Obama campaign has deleted the fake "New Black Panther Party" profile. However, Sean Hannity still loves Obama!
