Fox News Is Always Good For A Laugh.

Lincoln

Fox News anchors mocked an intern during their morning broadcast, asking if the intern could find footage of the original Lincoln-Douglas debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas. They thought this was extremely funny.

Of course, while this was going on a picture of Abraham Lincoln and famed abolitionist, Frederick Douglass flashed on the screen. The best I can say to this was at least it was around the same time period. They probably thought since Lincoln was a “Republican,” he was the one who favored slavery, therefore the abolitionist had to be black.

That or they just weren’t paying attention at all. Either way, thank you Fox News for the laugh.
