Fox News host Laura Ingraham is slamming the media for the “race obsession” in relation to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
While on her show “The Ingraham Angle” the host did a segment of “Seen and Unseen” as she introduced “the media’s race obsession with the royal baby.”
The conversation first started with the bundle of joy’s name.
“I love it,” Ingraham said. Her fellow contributor Raymond Arroyo then criticized both the L.A Times and CNN for being “so race obsessed, they couldn’t celebrate the child’s birth without headlines like this.”
The programme then showed headlines from the news agencies that read “How black will the royal baby be?” and “Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry raise their baby to be black?”
“What? What does that mean?” Ingraham questioned.
“This should be a moment of unity. He’s not a check in a box. He’s a child of God and it’s a moment to celebrate,” Arroyo chimed in.
Fox isn’t the first to question the headlines. Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien tweeted that the network is not in touch.
A BBC broadcaster, Danny Baker, was fired for a racist tweet that included a picture of a couple holding hands with a chimp dressed up in clothes.
“Royal baby leaves hospital,” he wrote along with the image.
Baker has apologized since being fired.
