I just came accross this via the Huffington post.
“My first thought when I heard – just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, ‘Hmmm, time to buy.'”
– Fox News’s Brit Hume, 7/7/05
Brian Kilmeade and Stuart Varney, two other clowns that work for FOX, had this to say:
KILMEADE: And he [British Prime Minister Tony Blair] made the statement, clearly shaken, but clearly determined. This is his second address in the last hour. First to the people of London, and now at the G8 summit, where their topic Number 1 –believe it or not– was global warming, the second was African aid. And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it’s important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world’s advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.
VARNEY: It puts the Number 1 issue right back on the front burner right at the point where all these world leaders are meeting. It takes global warming off the front burner. It takes African aid off the front burner. It sticks terrorism and the fight on the war on terror, right up front all over again.
Totally digusting from a so called “Fair and Balanced” news network. But alas, O’Reilly and others will spin it and somehow make it all go away. Yes the London bombings are horrific. Fox and others wnat you to forget about the Downing Street Memo,The Valerie Plame affair, The Iraq quagmire,etc, etc. Just concentrate on the “War” on terror.
Wars on Drugs, Literacy, Terror, etc are NOT designed to be winnable. Only profitable.
