Fox Rewards Matthew Vadum's Vicious Diatribe Against Poor People With Airtime

What is a news network to do when an author compares poor Americans to criminals and says it's "un-American" to help them vote? If that network is Fox -- the home of class warfare against the poor -- the decision is to give that author a spot on TV the next day.
The day after publishing an article titled, "Registering the Poor to Vote is Un-American," which contained such abhorrent statements as "[r]egistering [the poor] to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals" and repeatedly called the poor "nonproductive segments of the population," right-wing author Matthew Vadum appeared on Eric Bolling's Fox Business show to rail against President Obama's voter outreach plan.
