Why Fox News host should be fired for mocking Nipsey Hussle

Fox News has reached a new low. And that speaks volumes for an organization with a  common practice of slinging mud.

During a segment on Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle” hosted by Laura Ingraham, Ingraham attempted to call out Nipsey Hussle about a rap lyric. However, her reporting was false and she mocked a dead man.

While showing a video clip of the song  “FDT- F— Donald Trump,” Ingraham mentioned Nipsey by saying, “Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘F Donald Trump,’ ” she said, smiling. However, the clip featured rapper YG rapping the chorus. She followed the clip by laughing and saying, “Now, that’s a very creative refrain, is that related to the lowest unemployment rates ever for African Americans?”

Ingraham demonstrated sociopathic behavior by laughing at a man who had recently lost his life. From a journalistic standpoint, Ingraham’s report was false; she attributed Nipsey when it was actually YG rapping.

Executives at Fox News should terminate Ingraham for her lack of a moral compass and making a major journalistic error.

Ingraham continues to catch flak on social media for her gross conduct as many have called for her termination.
