What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Fox News outdid itself when it attempted to picture Abraham Lincoln and rival Stephen A. Douglas, whom Lincoln debated back in 1858. Unfortunately they put up a picture of abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Does Fox really think black people were running for office in 1858? If so, why do they make such a stink over Barack Obama?

Watch Dan Abrams’ snarky take, after the jump.

    Just for the record, Frederick Douglass was nominated as a candidate for vice-president in 1872, with Victoria Woodhull running for president as the Equal Rights Party candidate. Needless to say, she wasn’t successful…
    Incidentally, the video doesn’t work, but Fox totally sucks anyway

    I thought it was their Prom photo. They look cute together.
