Accuracy in Media

A piece in the New York Magazine criticized Fox News for having hosts who have blonde hair. Why?

Fox News and Donald Trump have given blonde hair a new chapter: Now, blonde is the color of the right, for whom whiteness has become a hallmark. Over the past decade or so, as inclusiveness became the hallmark of Obama-era liberals, the left found feminist icons in Rachel Maddow, Samantha Power, and Michelle Obama, who make no apologies for their failure to fit traditional ideals. But #MAGA, Fox News America is a place where all the classic signifiers of privilege and wealth work on overdrive: country-club-issue blue blazers with brass buttons and khaki pants, and above all else, for women, that yellow-blonde, carefully tended hair — a dog whistle of whiteness, an unspoken declaration of values, a wink-wink to the power of racial privilege and to the 1980s vibe that pervades a movement led by a man who still believes in the guilt of the Central Park Five.

In other words, blonde hair could be viewed as being too conformist in America.

The liberal media largely ignored this piece of news, with only the Washington Free Beacon and Daily Caller covering it. By the way, these two organizations are conservative media outlets.

Why ignore this story, liberal media?

    What a bunch of idiotic childish sad feminist crap, what a disservice to feminism, a disgraced bigoted movement…they stand by women only if the women are conservative (and now non-white, i guess) they stand for women’s rights unless the woman is defensless in the womb of her mother, they support Islam who opresses women while bashing christianity which is the only religion which brought democracy and women rights to the world, basically it’s a leftist ideological movement that has nothing to do with women !
    What a shameful disgrace.. and then they are surprised that white nationalism is on the rise
