Eboni K. Williams, a former co-host of “The Fox News Specialists,” spoke out about her experience working at the network in an interview with “The Breakfast Club” podcast this week, addressing those who say the network is “bigoted and racist.”
Williams attributed the reputation of the network to its founder, Roger Ailes, tapping into conservatives’ “fear of the intrinsic devaluation of whiteness in this country.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Fox has a reputation for being bigoted and racist, all for very good reason,” Williams said in the interview. “In this book, [Roger Ailes] very plainly, in plain sight says he is forming a network to speak to one thing and one thing only: the demonizing of the other.”
“I don’t know what his beliefs are, but what he knew was it would be very profitable,” Williams continued. “OK, when you find a fear-based thing like that and you can capitalize on it, in a unique way, no one had ever done this before.”
She said Ailes was a “smart businessman” who “saw a void” and “filled it” by offering conservative viewpoints.
