FOX News Fox News Discriminates against and Mocks Pagan Religions New York, New York

*Consumer Comment: Jeff,
Fox and Friends on February 17, 2013, making fun of a Federally recognized religion, present inaccurate information as "facts" concerning the religion of Wicca, and decide that religious freedom and respect is ONLY for the mainstream or "traditional" religions rather than for EVERY American Citizen regardless of their spirituality. Obviously they need to re-read our Constitution. They also need to reflect on the fact that this is -not- a "majority rules" based Country, a commonly held misunderstanding. If it were, we would not have an electoral college but would operate strictly on a one-person-one-vote system (which we do not). So while the majority of citizens may follow a more traditionally recognized religion in this Country, that in no way invalidates the rights of citizens of other "minority" religions to have the exact same rights and respect given to those of a traditional religion or a majority group.
They have lied about Wicca, portraying those that practice as "compulsive Dungeons and Dragons players". In this particular Fox and Friends production, the blonde woman in the background is even seen laughing at the remarks made by the other two individuals.
This station, on their website, claims to report News "fairly and accurately" but do nothing of the sort. They openly lie about Paganism, mocking those that follow it. Letters have been sent to Fox News demanding an apology for their very blatant discrimination. These people are definitely NOT "accurate and fair" in their reporting.
