This... I can't quite believe it, even of Fox

Apparently Fox put up a graphic of Lincoln and Douglass to illustrate Hillary Clinton challenging Barak Obama to a "Lincoln-Douglas style" debate. Only instead of pictures of Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas, they put up a graphic of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

Every time I think Fox "News" can't possibly get any worse, they prove me wrong. What the hell is wrong with them? How do they manage to stay on the air? I'm normally an optimistic guy, but things like this make me despair for humanity. I then have to spend lots of time reminding myself that these people are a minority, that demographics and history trend away from Fox and its level of stupidity. They're on the losing side of history or they wouldn't have to "stand astride it, yelling STOP". Fortunately, all they manage is to slow things down occasionally.
