MSNBC's Targets Drudge As Race Baiter, Says He Keeps Secret Service Busy
On MSNBC this afternoon, network personalities and contributors Martin Bashir, Goldie Taylor and the one-worded Toure condemned The Drudge Report for featuring a story on the n-word being used over 100 times in the new movie Django Unchained, which stars actor Jamie Foxx.
"If I live a thousand years, Matt Drudge will never become an arbiter for me of what is racially unacceptable in this country. I think that his site and those that he feeds to and from, links to and from, I mean they make an awful lot of money from this," MSNBC contributor Goldie Taylor said.
"I think that they trade, you know, peddle this stuff on a daily basis and they do it to line their own pockets. And so I just don't give that kind of credibility to a Matt Drudge," Taylor added.
Taylor goes on to say that this is all about a "right-wing fringe" that don't like the fact that there is a black man in office.
Taylor later said that websites like Drudge are race-baiting and "keep the Secret Service busy."
"I think it is a money-making mission for some of these websites to produce these columned-out pieces to drive more traffic. They are baiting, you know, playing to the least of these folks who still harbor some of the worst prejudices and the most vicious and maligning stereotypes about people like me, like Toure, like yourself (Bashir)," Taylor said.
"It is irresponsible, it is dangerous, frankly. If we look at this particular president, if we look at the Secret Service statistics, the number, the sheer number of assassination threats that come into this White House, either by the phone or email, or internet. It keeps the Secret Service quite busy," she said.
