Fox Business host Stuart Varney probed Fox Sports 1 host Jason Whitlock that the reason sports fans hate the New England Patriots is that the team is racist.
“Is it black folks who don’t like the Patriots because their stars are white and they have two-parent families?” asked Varney, repeating an earlier comment from Whitlock. “What’s this racism bit?
“It’s more than black folks,” replied Whitlock. We’re in this era of woke, and woke media, and super-liberal media, who love to prove how racially sensitive they are.”
Whitlock compared the Patriots to Duke basketball.
“The Duke basketball team featured a lot of white stars in a sport dominated by African-Americans,” he said. He listed the stars of the Patriots, who are also white. “Those are the guys you think of when you think of the New England Patriots, and that’s unusual in the NFL.”
“We’re on the same page, Jason. I think we agree here,” said Varney. “The charge of racism is just wrong in this instance.”

‘Don’t you dare!’ CNN’s Brian Stelter gets into shouting match with conservative over Hunter Biden story
CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter and Washington Examiner correspondent Susan Ferrechio tangled on BBC radio on Wednesday during a discussion about how conservative media have hyped a political attack on Joe Biden's son.
During a panel discussion that included the corruption allegations against Biden and his son, Ferrechio complained that most mainstream media outlets have not publicized the report, which was first published by the New York Post.
"The bottom line is it deserves scrutiny by all media outlets," Ferrechio said. "And if they pick and choose this and decide it's not worth their time, I think that's showing real bias."
Here’s how The Christian Post ‘sold its soul’ to Trump — according to its former politics editor
Political analyst Napp Nazworth watched as The Christian Post (CP) made its "gradual descent" from being anti-Trump to pro-Trump, often questioning whether or not he should jump ship from the publication. But what happened on Dec. 23, 2019, made the decision painfully clear.
"I was told by Michelle Vu, my boss at The Christian Post, to publish a pro-Trump op-ed as an editorial, meaning it was to express the position of the media organization," Nazworth wrote at Arc Digital. "'It can’t be an editorial,' I explained, 'because I don’t agree with it and I’m an editor.' Vu said she would call me back."
Republicans grow increasingly nervous over potential loss of Senate seat GOP has controlled for decades
Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) wants to fill the state's open Senate seat that been in the hands of Republicans since 1932, and was once widely expected to do so, but thanks to the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, the seat is more likely to be a toss-up, according to the Washington Post's Annie Gowen.
Marshall’s Democratic opponent, Barbara Bollier, 62, is a state senator who recently left the GOP, and has focused her platform on battling the pandemic and expanding health care. Gowen reports that she has racked up a "record third-quarter fundraising haul of $13.5 million, and has raised a total of $20 million. Marshall raised $2.7 million in the third quarter and has a total of $5 million."
