Crazy like Fox, Part II

As CTTC relayed to you yesterday, Fox News Channel host John Gibson told his audience how much better the attack on London's public transportation system might have been if it had only been visited upon FNC's pet national scapegoat, the French.

From The Guardian U.K.:

"If they had picked France instead of London to hold the Olympics, it would have been the one time we could look forward to where we didn't worry about terrorism. They'd blow up Paris, and who cares?" He added: "This is why I thought the Brits should let the French have the Olympics - let somebody else be worried about guys with backpack bombs for a while."

Now, as a saddening postscript, it is being reported that the suicide bombers were, in fact, British citizens.

From CNN International:

"Prime Minister Tony Blair has expressed his shock that the four men believed to have carried out last week's deadly terrorist attacks on London's transit system were British nationals.
But speaking to parliament on Wednesday, Blair also urged Britons to react calmly to the bombings that killed at least 52 people, and he condemned attacks against Muslims.

'Particularly with the shock of knowing that those that have perpetrated this were actually born and brought up in this country, I think it is particularly important we recognize the worldwide dimension of this,' Blair said."

These new revelations will most certainly not result in any retractions from Gibson or his FNC comrades regarding their salivation at the possibility of Parisian carnage -- they apologize about as much as their Bush Administration patrons do, and if they had a conscience between them, they would be now experiencing a not-so-fresh feeling in their cranial repository for unused ethical standards. As such, we bestow Gibson with one of our favorite, Jon Stewart-approved, French-derived descriptors.
