Fox News has developed a bit of a reputation for sometimes portraying things in a biased maner, and Sean Hannity continued that tradition last week by describing Jay Z in a very specific way.
Hannity was addressing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's decision to meet with Jay Z following the non-indictment decision for the cop involved with the death of Eric Garner, but the Fox News host wasn't very happy about it.
Completely ignoring Jay's role as one of the most prominent black entertainers in the world, Hannity attempts to tease who Cuomo met with by describing Jay Z as "a guy that admits that he sold crack and was a drug dealer and actually shot somebody."
Hmmmm, left a few things off Hov's resume didn't he? He could also be described as the head of Roc Nation, entrepreneur, multi-millionaire, father to Blue Ivy and husband to Beyonce—along with serious contender as the best rapper alive.
Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show" obviously took issue with the bias that Hannity showed toward Jay, pointing out the problems with Hannity's pigeonholing of Jay's character.
"I don't even know what to do here, it's so over the line!" Stewart exclaims after airing the clip.
Luckily, Jessica Williams interrupts him and introduces a supercut of other times Fox News has been hyper-critical of the black community, or urged them to step up and "take responsibility" for changing their own situations... you know, kind of like the way Jay Z did?
