*Writer and frequent EURweb contributor Jasmyne Cannick was a guest on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor” for a discussion of race in America, but her segment turned into a debate about the network itself when she said “many of the shows on this very network help perpetuate the racism that exists in America.”
O’Reilly’s guest host Eric Bolling was thrown. He responded, “How? Don’t lob a grenade without telling me how.”
Bolling told Cannick that her appearance followed several back-to-back discussions of race, with varying viewpoints, and asked her how that perpetuated racism.
Cannick would only reply, “You know exactly what I’m saying, Eric.”
Cannick later tweeted:
Thank you Fox News for without your audience that racism that we know exists but that you constantly deny might go unsaid:)
