Gibson isn't the only insensitive dolt working for Fox (oh, there are so many). Brit Hume, shortly after the attacks, said that his "first thought" upon learning of the attacks was that it’s “time to buy” in the futures market. I have more of the transcript on a recent "Below the Fold" post.

Fox isn't journalism - it's cheap hackery masquerading as intelligent thought. Gibson should apologize, Hume should apologize, and Fox should get out of the news business.

Allan Jenkins

The only people who take Fox seriously work in the White House.

Ooops... that could be a problem.

Scott Baradell

Gibson is an embarrassment. Thanks for your thoughtful post.

"Fox isn't journalism - it's cheap hackery masquerading as intelligent thought."

You're being too kind. It's actually bigoted agitprop masquerading as cheap hackery.


Most reactions I've seen about Gibson's writing reflect what you all are saying.

Much of those reactions also put Gibson in a political pigeon-hole. Maybe it's me as a non-American but I'm having difficulty in seeing what the political leaning is here (notwithstanding Allan's comment re the White House).

To my mind, Gibson simply writes xenophobic crap and I don't care what any political emphasis might be.

In any event, I think The Tonic has got it right.

Allan Jenkins

Xenophobic right-winger. That sort of stuff plays well in wide swathes of the country, especially small-town America.


Thanks for that.
