(Raw Story has brought this old entry I did up. It is of significance right now with the news that Tony Snow could be slated to replace Scott McClellan so I decided to bump it up considering I have changed servers and domains since then).
While digging around trying to find more dirt on FOX news and their ties to white supremacy, I uncovered something real interesting. This time it comes from one of their national hosts and not an affiliate.. That host is none other than Tony Snow, FOX news host and political analyst.
On martinlutherking.org, a site hosted by stormfront.org which is the white supremacy group at the center of the discussion, Tony Snow has an interesting article in which he tries to discredit Kwanza.
Now, the point: There is no part of Kwanzaa that is not fraudulent. Begin with the name. The celebration comes from the Swahili term “matunda yakwanza,” or “first fruit,” and the festival’s trappings have Swahili names — such as “ujima” for “collective work and responsibility” or “muhindi,” which are ears of corn celebrants set aside for each child in a family.

After I noticed this article and who it was authored by I noticed a foot note that states “Tony Snow is a columnist for the Detroit News”. I quickly checked into Tony Snow’s bio on the Fox News website and behold I found the following:
Before joining FOX News, Snow was a nationally syndicated columnist with The Detroit News from 1993 to 2001. He was also a columnist for USA Today from 1994 to 2000. Earlier, he served as an editorial writer at The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, VA; editorial page editor of The Daily Press in Newport News, VA; deputy editorial page editor of The Detroit News; and editorial page editor of The Washington Times. Snow’s career in journalism began in 1979 when he was an editorial writer for The Greensboro Record in North Carolina.
Now FOX can try to spin their shameless promotion of this group all they want but we now have more proof that even their reporters support this site and their views. Nice company that Fox news is, I wonder who else on their staff promotes hate.
To further prove that this Tony Snow is in fact one in the same, John from Crooks and Liars pointed out this interesting fact from his article which appears on martinlutherking.org:
Go to Kenya, where I taught briefly as a young man, and you’ll see endless hostility between Kikuyu, Luo, Luhya and Masai. Even South African politics these days have more to do with tribal animosities than ideological differences.
Now if you check out Fox news site, they have another biography for Tony Snow, this one for his Tony Snow Show.This biography helps connect the dots even more:
He also has worked as an advocate for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled in North Carolina, taught physics and East African Geography in Kenya, and has done substitute teaching in everything from calculus to seventh-grade art class
