MSNBC Notes Hypocrisy Of Fox's Attack On Rapper Common

Tonight, MSNBC's Cenk Uygur reported on the freak-out by the right-wing media, including Fox News, about the White House's invitation to rapper Common for a poetry event.

Uygur noted that Fox's attacks are hypocritical in light of the fact that the network had sung a much different tune about Common roughly half-a-year ago.

“It's funny how quickly Fox forgets things,” Uygur said. “As Media Matters points out, just in October, Fox interviewed Common, praising him as a 'very positive' and 'conscious rapper.' ”
