Fox News' very own anchors are speaking out — and walking off — over what they perceive to be "Obama-bashing" on their network.

This morning on "Fox and Friends," Brian Kilmeade walked off the set after a dispute with his co-hosts Gretchen Carlson (she who celebrates deadly floods) and Steve Doocy over Obama's comment that his grandmother is a "typical white person." Kilmeade argued that the remark needed to be taken in context and eventually got so fed up with his co-hosts that he walked off set.

Later, "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace came on the show and railed against "Fox and Friends" for what he called "Obama-bashing."

Not me, I'm an American, and I do care.

I've lived my life with the outlook that you treat everyone as a friend until they prove differently. Color has never had a play in the situation.

Hard to land the big interview when your network is giving him every excuse to stay away.

WTF are you babbling about jaz. Major Garrett interviewed Obama on FOX last week over the Rev. Wright stuff. I don't really like Obama's "typical white person" comment. It reminds me of when Ross Perot gave that speech at what was a NAACP event back in the 90's and kept referring to all Black people as "You People". It's not insulting as much as it is divisive.

I'll skip the "WTF are you babbling about..." part and go straight to the point. Chris Wallace isn't Major Garrett. He's going off message and defending Obama at least in part to take away any excuse he can to keep Obama away.

Good, that would suggest that you would be willing to get past the unhelpful choice of words and move on to the heart of the point he's trying to make, which is that black people need to understand that merely because a white person is afraid of violence in urban areas, doesn't mean that they are racist.

Surely that's a point that you can support.
