So let me get this straight…MSNBC, CNN, ESPN and even some of the hosts on FOX News are openly accusing Trump AND his supporters of being “racists,” with not one shred of evidence to back it up, and this host makes comments on her personal Facebook page that can actually be backed up with factual evidence, and she gets fired? Sounds about right…
The Left’s suppression of speech and viewpoints by conservatives has never been more dangerous. Let’s hope this new administration is able to reverse this very scary trend.
Scarlett Fakhar, a reporter for KRIV Fox 26 Houston, thanked her supporters on social media after she informed them that her bosses had dismissed her ‘for expressing my conservative views on my private Facebook page’, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The station is an affiliate of the Fox television network.
Fox 26 representatives confirmed on Friday that Fakhar is no longer with the station.
The 25-year-old television journalist became the subject of controversy last week after she had announced on her personal Facebook page that she was ‘happy and relieved’ that Trump had won.
‘I prayed for the best leader that will turn this country that has become more violent and racist under the Obama administration than ever … into the America I once knew’, she wrote in a post that was later deleted.
‘I hate to say it … but the number of African Americans killing one another far outweighs the number of them being killed by whites’, she said.
She said Obama ‘has made the entire country hate one another’.
Where is the evidence that anything about her claim is false?
Here is one of her “controversial posts to Facebook:
Fakhar on Thursday took aim at ‘the liberal Houston Chronicle’ for ‘wrongfully saying I chastised African Americans’.
The newspaper had published a story on the controversy, and the wording used by the journalists caused Fakhar to take issue.
‘The media has made this a RACE issue when in reality the matter boils down to a difference in political philosophy,’ she wrote.
‘As a multiracial person myself, I never have been or never will be racist. I simply stated the fact that the media continues to misrepresent the factual realities that there is NO more white on black crime than there is black on black crime.’
A source told the Daily Mail that Fakhar was dismissed because part of her reporting duties including covering political issues during the newscasts.
Permitting her to express opinions publicly on the subject would compromise her impartiality and betray a political bias, the source said.
‘A number of people in TV news are telling followers on social media how they feel about this year’s election’, wrote blogger Scott Jones on FTVLive.com. ‘Which is exactly what they should not be doing’. Via: Daily Mail
