The Southern Poverty Law Center lists the Nation of Islam as a hate group and says that the group's "theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate."
On its website, Fox Soul says it is "a new live and interactive streaming channel dedicated to the African American viewer."
"The programs aim to celebrate black culture and deal with real topics that impact the everyday lives of the black community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers," the website adds.
FOX network launched Fox Soul in January.What else?
On Monday, CNN host Jake Tapper took notice of Fox Soul's Independence Day programming and called the network out for the Nation of Islam leader's special.
He wrote, "Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?"Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda? https://t.co/dmX7A6LSd2 — Jake Tapper (@Jake Tapper)1593435697.0

Amazon Prime Video Mercifully Rolls Out Individual User Profiles Similar to Netflix

Long-awaited support for individual user profiles has finally arrived on Amazon’s streaming TV service, Prime Video. This means the niche streaming interests of your partner or family members can be saved to their own profiles—meanwhile, you, reader, can continue to binge the original Unsolved Mysteries at your own uninterrupted pace.
An Amazon spokesperson told Gizmodo by email that Prime subscribers can now add up to six profiles for Prime Video, with one for the primary user on the account as well as up to five others (these profiles also support a Kids option). As with Netflix profiles, each individual user will be served their own content recommendations and Watchlist, and profiles will save series watch progress—an absolutely key feature for anyone also watching a series independently from anyone else in their household.
Amazon said that users will be able to create and manage their multi-user profiles from the Prime Video apps for iOS and Android as well as on newer Fire tablets, PS4, and on Fire TV. If you don’t immediately see the feature—it wasn’t immediately available for me as of Tuesday—the Amazon spokesperson said the rollout is happening in phases, and U.S. users should begin seeing the feature soon.
Multi-user Prime Video profiles are the latest feature rollout to a streaming service that’s introduced a number of sought-after tools for its platform recently. Last week, Prime Video also introduced a Watch Party tool for co-viewing with up to 100 other users in a chatroom-like theater setting that automatically syncs a stream for everyone who joins.
User-specific profiles are definitely one of the service’s most exciting additions recently, though, especially for those of us who prefer our recommendation streams remain specific to Robert Stack and other true crime creep-related content.G/O Media may get a commissionPlay Super Smash Bros.
