Update: Fox News: Netflix won’t air documentary on controversial Louis Farrakhan after ‘internal miscommunication’

Louis Farrakhan has a net worth of $3M. Looks like rabid hate-mongering can be a lucrative career. No word, yet, on how much Netflix is paying Farrakhan’s son, Joshua Farrakhan, for the documentary.

But I wonder if new Netflix board member and Obama BFF Susan Rice had a hand in this project.

Netflix will begin offering a film chronicling the life of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on August 1 despite the activist’s penchant for resorting to anti-semitic and anti-gay slurs.

The documentary, The Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan: My Life’s Journey Through Music, was produced in 2014 by Farrakhan’s son and chronicles the minister’s life as an activist and fringe political figure.

    Well, it didn’t take long for the spinning effort to surface on the Netflix. So glad I won’t be able to watch this amazing doc.

    Possible that Netflix is airing this for the appearance of ‘balance’. Netflix airs the Israel show, Fauda, concerning Israeli special forces operating in Palestinian territories. 2nd season started the end of May. The jerky BDS movement has criticized airing the show and requested its removal.
