What a disgrace. Farrakhan has made a national name for himself by being an anti-semitic conspiracy theorist but he had a front row seat at the funeral of Aretha Franklin. Many liberal media outlets purposely cut him out of photos to protect Bill Clinton who he was seated next to.
BizPac Review reports:
Farrakhan was ‘front and center’ at Aretha funeral, but networks made him magically disappear
Aretha Franklin’s funeral was filled with family, friends, celebrities and even a former president but the presence of Louis Farrakhan at the service raised many eyebrows.
Fox News’ Martha MacCallum kept finding herself “distracted” by the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam, who had a front row seat at Detroit’s Greater Grace Temple on Friday to honor the “Queen of Soul” who died last month at the age of 76 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
The tributes were “amazing” MacCallum said to her panel on Fox News’ “The Story” Friday. “But I did keep finding myself distracted by Louis Farrakhan who was in every single shot. I’m thinking, ‘What was he doing there?’”
The Weekly Standard’s Kelly Jane Torrance noted that several outlets had cut the controversial figure out of pictures they published on their websites, obviously having the same question as MacCallum about why he was there and why he was in the front row seated next to Revs. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and former Pres. Bill Clinton.
Many of the mainstream liberal media sites appear to have intentionally cropped the man who blamed Jews for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks out of their photos.
