"For normal news outlets," Maddow said, the New Black Panther case simply "wasn’t a story" -- and rightfully so.
They represented that story as if that is the guy who decided the election.
That was fake." A few weeks after that appearance, a Politi Fact reader wrote us to ask if we could fact-check Maddow’s statement that Fox News "said the New Black Panther Party decided the election for Barack Obama." So we will.
First, some background on the controversy Maddow referenced.
We addressed it in some detail in a previous item, but here’s a summary: In mid 2010, Fox News pundits hammered the Obama administration for its handling of a voter intimidation case involving the New Black Panther Party (which is not related to the original Black Panthers), specifically, that the Obama administration backed off the case because it is afraid of prosecuting minorities for civil rights violations. 4, 2008 -- the day of the presidential election -- when New Black Panther Party members Jerry Jackson and King Samir Shabazz stood outside a Philadelphia polling place dressed in black military-style uniforms.
The department asked for, and got, an injunction prohibiting Shabazz from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling location until 2012.
