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.”

Lindsey Graham promises Fox viewers a new investigation into Andrew McCabe despite the Justice Dept clearing him
Appearing on the Fox Business channel with host Maria Bartiromo, Sen.

MSNBC guest goes off on Chris Matthews for comparing Sanders to Nazis: ‘He had kin murdered in the Holocaust’
Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.
"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."
‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.
During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.
"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
