Fox News Mistook Patti LaBelle for Aretha Franklin

I know this may come as a shock to some, but America’s biggest cable news cheerleader for white supremacy couldn’t tell the difference between two black women. The legendary Aretha Franklin passed away today, and Fox News decided to put up this graphic that passed through whatever fact-checkers they have at that miserable network. Watch this gif zoom in on the image of LaBelle singing for PBS in 2014.

Putting a bow on this perfect bit of symbolism today for President Trump’s favorite network, FOX News Digital has a new Vice President, Hannity’s Executive Producer Porter Berry. Despite having real journalists like Shepard Smith working for them, on the whole, Fox News is not a news organization, and anyone referring to them as such is aiding their propaganda.
