Fox's Attack On Regulations Targets Civil Rights Act

It seems that no law is safe from Fox's efforts to help the Republicans' anti-regulatory agenda - not even landmark civil rights legislation.

This week Fox News is helping the Republicans' push for deregulation by running a series of reports the network is branding "Regulation Nation." On Tuesday, Fox host David Asman issued a call for "substantive deregulation before the next election." Fox News then scrolled through a list of laws under the heading "Regulation Nation" - a list that included Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act:

While Fox's opposition to Social Security and Medicare is tired and uninspired, the inclusion of the Civil Rights Act is startling.

Title VII - doesn't that prohibit discrimination by employers based on race, sex, national origin, etc?  So they want companies to be able to legally discriminate when making hiring decisions???
