It's been an amazing year.

Posted on

19. The time they aired a segment about how “rap music is seen as a problem” 50 years after the 1963 March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

16. When Fox and Friends teased a segment on Chelsea Manning by playing "Dude Looks Like a Lady."

15. When Brian Kilmeade asked a Nicaraguan co-host during Hispanic Heritage Month if she "grew up on tacos."

12. When Brian Kilmeade threw this ball in a toddler's face and made him cry on live TV.

9. When Fox and Friends said the day of Obama's inauguration was the "most depressing day of the year."

The hosts said the "third Monday in January" is "most depressing day of the year." The notion of Blue Monday, however, is based on a discredited marketing campaign.

7. When Fox News psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow told Steve Doocy he thought Obama was victimized by his parents and was taking it out on America.

Fox’s Jesse Watters ran a clip of a series of interviews with people at the U.N., mocking a “U.N. guest from Nepal.” Subedi Shudarson is the president of the central board of the National Federation of the Disabled – Nepal. He was not a delegate or politician, but was a guest at the U.N. General Assembly.
