Fox News has become the home to "white anxiety" with its 94% white viewership
Laura Ingraham was accused of being racist with her Wednesday night commentary that "massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people" -- comments so controversial that Ingraham walked back her remarks on Thursday night after she said they were embraced by "white nationalists and especially one racist freak." But as CNN points out, Ingraham's comments "served as another raw example of a Fox News host echoing white nationalist language." So far this year, Fox News has a viewership that's 94% white, 3% Latino, 2% Asian and 1% black. With a nearly all-white audience, says CNN, "on the channel's highest-rated shows, the politics of white anxiety play out practically every day, as hosts and guests warn about the impacts of immigration and minimize or mock the perspectives of people of color. The talk show segments are clearly intended to appeal to people who perceive they are losing their grip on power."
