Once again someone affiliated with Fox is accused of racism. Surprise, surprise.

Via Media TakeOut: A host on the Fox Business network—criticized last month for suggesting President Obama was “chugging 40’s” during his trip to Europe—is facing allegations of racism after referring to the White House as the “Hizzouse,” “Hizzy” and “The Big Crib,” and guests of the administration as “hoods.”

Eric Bolling, who hosts Fox Business’ “Follow the Money,” criticized Obama for inviting Gabon’s president Ali Bongo at the White House this week, a month after the Fox News-fueled controversy over Common’s invitation to perform at First Lady Michelle Obama’s poetry event. Bolling’s broadcast late last week came on the heels of another racially tinged controversy, courtesy of Bolling’s Fox Business colleague John Stossel, who drew flak for bringing an Obama impersonator on air to stage a mock debate with a 2012 GOP presidential hopeful.

A spokeswoman for Fox Business told The Cutline that Bolling would address the issue on his show tonight.
