Fox’s Trotta: “Who cares about the Iranians?”

Uncategorized Comments (0)

In the clip below, Fox’s Liz Trotta makes the statement, “Who cares about the Iranians?” in reference to a charge—discredited by the CIA—of Ahmadinejad’s involvement in the 1979 hostage scenario.

Trotta’s remarks are hateful and irresponsible, communicating misinformation to viewers and promoting a dangerous atmosphere of hostility. They also alienate over 70 million Iranians—potential allies—who are among the most US-friendly in a region where US influence is quickly fading. Reflecting on Trotta’s remark, it is worth questioning whether the same statement could be made about other ethnic groups or nationalities.
