Black Lives Matter Network Responds to Fox

Black Lives Matter

Representatives of the Black Lives Matter movement are not too pleased with how Fox News pundits and other right-winged TV personalities have presented them recently.

Earlier this week, Fox host Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested the network be classified as a hate group. Then Fox host Bill O’Reilly vowed to “put an end” to the Black Lives Matter movement once and for all. In an press release sent to JET, members of the Black Lives Matter Network, which includes 26 chapters from across the country, issued the following response:

“Instead of reporting the news, FOX pundits and other right-wing TV personalities are making false accusations that put Black lives at risk. Those responsible for these distortions are not actual journalists. They are TV personalities sensationalizing tragedy to further their own agenda at the cost of reason, justice, and the democratic rights of Black people everywhere to demand an end to police violence and mass incarceration.”
