Fox SC reporter active on Stormfront forums
As if there is any surprise that this is going on in SC — Tami Birckner, a “news” reporter who ran a puff piece on the white supremacist web site Stormfront, actively participated on the forums there and was eager to do additional “profiles” of the sick hate group. The kicker is that her bosses were pleased with her angle and coverage — and look at the rewards for Tami.
The South Carolina Broadcaster’s Association has named Tami Birckner the 2005 SC Reporter of the Year.

One member says, “we really are just white folks that deeply care about preserving a future for our progeny.”
