Nation of Islam Official: “I Got My FOX News Girlfriend to Do” Pandering “Farrakhan Interview, Give My $ to Bush-Cheney”
Whether or not you live in Detroit, you will find this of interest because it shows how easily the Nation of Islam (and any other such Islamic group) can infiltrate and bias the news coverage you see even more than it already is biased, how local media doesn’t give both sides in stories of alleged physical abuse when one of their own is playing the “domestic abuse card,” and how many news organizations flat out lie.
Recently, I told you more about Fanchon Stinger, the fired FOX News / News Corp employee and anchor of Detroit’s FOX owned-and-operated news operation, FOX 2 News. I’ve been on the story for the last year-and-a-half, telling you what the mainstream media won’t. She was fired because of her relationship with Rayford Jackson, now a convicted felon, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bribery. He bribed then-Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, wife of Congressman John Conyers, in order to secure a billion-dollar sludge contract with the City of Detroit for a company called Synagro. Stinger is now trying to rehabilitate her image with apparently phony claims of physical abuse by Jackson (though her scheduled “Good Morning, America” appearance was canceled–thanks to your efforts). I write about this in my column in Sunday’s Detroit Free Press.
As I told you over a year-and-a-half ago, FOX 2 News and FOX 2 management were aware of Stinger’s relationship with Jackson for several years and her involvement with his business affairs (as well as his exotic cars she put in her name), and yet, they looked the other way when she gave a half-hour pandering, gushing interview to the racist, bigoted Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Last week, I conducted a 40-minute far-ranging interview with Rayford Jackson as he prepares to report to federal prison in January. He confirmed that as a prominent figure in the Nation of Islam, he was behind the Louis Farrakhan interview, a complete conflict of interest on Stinger’s part. He also confirmed that Stinger used his money to give a $2,000 campaign contribution to Bush-Cheney ’04, while she was covering the campaign as a morning news anchor.
And he responds to Stinger’s allegations of abuse, noting that several of Detroit’s “objective” news anchors and talk show hosts–Diana Lewis (Detroit ABC affiliate, Channel 7), Carmen Harlan (Detroit NBC affiliate, Local 4), and Paul W. Smith (morning radio talk show host, WJR)–who presented Stinger’s sob story, never contacted him for his side of the story. So much for “fair and balanced” media. Jackson also talks about what John Conyers knew, the FBI investigation, whether he’ll become an informant on the rest of his activities, and how he is preparing to spend the next five years of his life in federal prison.
The interview is in five parts, below. Please also note that Jackson is so close to Louis Farrakhan that after the interview concluded, he offered me an interview with Farrakhan (which I probably won’t do). The interview was conducted at the delicious, kosher Jerusalem Pizza in Southfield, Michigan, a frequent hangout of Jackson and Stinger.
