A Disgusting History of Transphobia on Fox News: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-06-19 at 3.56.48 PM

Media Matters for America has released a video compilation of Fox News's greatest anti-transgender hits.

Reads their press release:

Fox News seems to have largely given up in its losing battle against marriage equality for gays and lesbians, but there's still one segment of the LGBT community that it feels comfortable openly mocking and demonizing on air: transgender people.


Fox's reliably defamatory coverage has prompted criticism from groups like the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which recently asked of Fox's transphobic coverage "when will it change?"

Another group, Basic Rights Oregon, launched a petition against Fox's transphobia earlier this year in response to a Fox Nation article which used an image from the film Mrs. Doubtfire to trivialize a story about transgender healthcare.

Watch it and weep, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. But when Bill Maher launches into a disgustingly trans-phobic monologue, as he did a couple of weeks ago, no one except a couple of trans bloggers cared.

    Why is Maher, who doesn't write his own material, thinks vaccines are bad and can't read from a teleprompter, a sacred cow?

  4. This is just one teeny little offense in the vast cesspool of fact-free moronity that Fox somehow likes to pretend is News.

  5. The network of dumb, straight white males and the few dumb females that follow them.

  6. Fox is a monument to un-ageing ignorance.

    No doubt its audience of uneducated over eating couch hugging trash loves this kind of cheap slime that passes for entertainment or 'news'.

    Rupert Murdoch must definitely must be a deep closet case because he has imbued this joke of a TV station with virulent homo haters and their bile.

    I saw that Russell Brand showed the standard of bottom feeders these TV people have become - what a pity he was not on Fox slapping down that oaf Hannity and that old phart, O'Reilly.

  7. You are a tool for posting this, you lap at whatever you can sensationalize, I am pretty sure you will find just as much "TRANSPHOBIA" at a gay bar.

  9. it's to be expected - transphobia is for the weak, bigoted, and the insecure.
