    FOX News at their finest

    Stardate 4208.7

    From Media Matters:

    Fox News' Brian Kilmeade: London terror attack near G8 summit "works to ... Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together"

    The following exchange between Fox News host Brian Kilmeade and Fox News business contributor and substitute host Stuart Varney occurred during breaking news coverage of the attacks on London subways and buses on the July 7 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

    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.

    KILMEADE: Yeah.

    You know what? That is the biggest crock of shit I have heard in a long time. I cannot believe they would say something like this on the news. So now, this big assed crusade against invisible foes that threaten the very well-being of every western person (except Canadians and the Swiss) can take front stage to *real* WORLD issues like Global Warming and African Poverty. Lets give George the monkey more fuel to ignore the rest of the world and concentrate these talks on their own agenda.

    Can't people just feel ashamed that human beings do this to each other? Can't they feel for the people who have lost family members and friends? Why do they have to turn it into yet more political crap? I seriously hope the next bus that blows up is in the lobby of FOX news. Maybe they will be interviewing George the monkey himself when it happens?

    We can only hope.
