Task Force Rips Stossel Comments

Tony Stewart, of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, sent the following letter to Fox News President Roger Ailes re: reporter John Stossel's comments about American Indians: "It is with deep disappointment and sadness that we viewed the Fox and Friends commentary featuring John Stossel regarding his biased and hurtful comments regarding Native Americans. Mr. Stossel’s failure to understand and appreciate the tragic history suffered by the truly first Americans, the American Indians, demonstrates a lack of knowledge or support to remedy the wrongs of the past. We suggest that Mr. Stossel inform himself regarding the millions of acres taken from the American Indians, the U.S. military forcibly removing Indians from those lands, and the slaughtering of the men, women and children of the tribes."
