The Cutline is a Yahoo News Blog about blogs. Here, they’re stirring up some anti-Fox hate:

On Thursday, a Fox News opinion website called Fox Nation aggregated a “Playbook” column by Politico’s Mike Allen about President Barack Obama’s 50th birthday bash, changing Allen’s typically long headline with this:
Obama’s Hip-Hop BBQ Didn’t Create Jobs

The private party included dinner (”BBQ chicken, ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta, salad”) in the Rose Garden was attended by Obama’s staff and celebrities including Al Sharpton, Jay-Z,  Chris Rock, Charles Barkley, Steve Harvey, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. There were performances by Stevie Wonder, R&B singer Ledisi, jazz legend Herbie Hancock. A DJ “played Motown, hip-hop, and ’70s and ’80s R&B.”

“The president asked everyone to dance — and they did!”

The headline, not surprisingly, immediately sparked renewed charges of racism against the network. But Fox is standing by it.[Fox News website calls Obama’s birthday party a ‘Hip-Hop BBQ’,By Dylan Stableford | The Cutline – 15 hrs ago]
Well, of course it “sparked renewed charges of racism” against the network. That’s because anything you say about Obama is a gaffe, something I’ve been saying since 2007, when Obama was a first-term Senator just starting his Presidential campaign.
