Yet another one.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article3007616.ece

Fox News's repulsive anchor repeatedly urged a reporter to add detail to a description the supposed gunman who he had seen taken away. Heuightm, build, clothes, not enough, still the pressing continued until he got what he had clearly wanted - the supposed shooter was supposedly African American.

What a nasty, tawdry, blight on humanity that channel is.

There's a reason I don't watch Fox News, UE.

I reckon the gunman was either a former employee of that department store, or was possibly married to someone who was a former employee. That's usually the case in these incidents.

Absolutely FF. It was just noxious to watch the pathetic attempt to make it some sort of race issue. I was passing through Fox en route to CNN and caught the tone and watched to see if it was as brazen as it seemed. It was.

I know, it's like watching a train wreck. I accidentally stumble upon it sometimes and then can't stop watching because I'm so incredulous that there are people watching it who believe every word.

Fox foiled as shooter was white. Probably not a fundamentalist christian though so that'll be some consolation.

Maybe he was one of them 'Wiggers'. It's the same thing then.

I've never been given or taken any opportunity to see the Fox 'News' Channel. I feel blessed.

GMTV, who I know use as the source of all my knowledge, said this guy opened fire on Christmas shoppers. How the fuck do GMTV know what people were shopping for? And why couldn't people just be browsing? Sensationalist GMTV twats.

I watched Mallrats yesterday as well, coincidentally. Though, as the only similarity between this story and the plot of Mallrats is the word 'mall' you could argue, very strongly indeed, that it isn't a coincidence at all.

"I know, it's like watching a train wreck. I accidentally stumble upon it sometimes and then can't stop watching because I'm so incredulous that there are people watching it who believe every word."

Since I got rid of my digital cable and have taken to just flipping channels mindlessly to drown out the voices in my head, this happens to me too.


This story seems so very quintessentially American. Guy lives in the sprawl of Omaha, one of the sprawlingest sprawltowns in the United States, gets fired from a McDonald's, which was probably out in the middle of a vast sprawling parking lot along a 6 lane stretch of mini-malls, breaks up with his girlfriend and shoots up a big sprawling mall with a big sprawling parking lot built on what used to be a prairie with buffalo and indians.

A report in a paper here a few days ago (Guardian Media?) suggested that Murdoch wanted to give Sky News a more Fox-y feel. Uh, uh...
