A job is a job, right? Well, apparently not according to Fox News.
The network that employs Tomi Lahren and Sean Hannity, feels some jobs are more worthy than others, as made abundantly clear by a story posted by the conservative news outlet.
For whatever reason, Fox News felt it necessary to post an article about former “Cosby Show” actor Geoffrey Owens being spotted working at Trader Joe’s.

You may remember Owens played Elvin Tibideaux on the iconic program from 1985-1992.
Fine, no big deal, right? Work is work and being employed at a grocery store is good, honest work. Fox News, for whatever reason, doesn’t seem to agree.
The article goes on to include this quote:
“I pulled up a site on the Internet to look at a picture of him and said, ‘That is him. I have never seen him at Trader Joe’s before.”
Naturally, one has to wonder why did Fox News feel it necessary to post such an article, to let us know where this man was working? As Fox News personalities routinely go on and on about, work is work and providing for ones family is honorable and all that kind of thing.
This kind of snobbery is the exact thing someone like Hannity would spend two segments of his program railing about if another network did the same thing.
Also, telling is that whoever wrote the article didn’t include their name. Regardless, Fox has been getting blasted by liberals and conservatives alike, and rightfully so, for the article.
The channel who maligns elites is now mocking this man doing what millions of Americans do every day. Go to work. It’s not glamorous & it doesn’t need to be. If the man was receiving government assistance you would ridicule that too. You guys are truly awful

Labor Day is a time to honor all who work and provide for our families. Shame on @FoxNews

This is bad and you are bad. It's as simple as that.

Thank goodness Fox is here to stand up for the Forgotten Man* against the elites!
*Unless they work at a grocery store

Why is this a story? Are you trying to shame a man for having a job?

Ridiculing a man for making a living?! Shame on you, @FoxNews. And shame on #KarmaLawrence, the woman who took the pictures and thought of “exposing” Owens in the first place. What a cruel, disgusting thing to do to someone. https://t.co/v8C8ZrYI6W
