25 Overtly Racist Moments in Recent News History

Obama's Baby-What?

When: June 2008
Network: 
Fox News
Anchor:
Megyn Kelly
Watch if here:
First Lady described as "baby mama"

An on-screen graphic displayed on a June 2008 Fox News broadcast referred to the now-first lady as "Obama's Baby Mama." Ignoring the channel's obvious misapplication of the term, the fact that the network resorted to using it in the first place is outrageous. If the classification doesn't strike you as offensive, or racially-charged, or outright despicable, consider whether Fox would depict the wife of another candidate in similar light.
