Former Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean on Sunday accused the Fox News Channel of being racist.

With the opening subject of “Fox News Sunday” being last week’s controversial termination of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod,
Dean said, “I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist. They took a, they had an obligation to find out what was really within the clip.”

Dean continued, “They have been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap and this, this business, and Sotomayor and all this other stuff…The Tea Party called out their racist fringe, and I think the Republican Party’s got to stop appealing to its racist fringe.”

That apparently was all host Chris Wallace could stand, for he struck back and struck back hard beginning with, “I know facts are inconvenient things, but let’s try to deal with the facts” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
