Scoble points to Loic LeMeur:.John Gibson (Fox News) wishes the French would have suffered from the bombings

I usually find it helpful to separate a person’s identity from his behaviour. This would guide me to criticise Gibson’s comments rather than labelling him in an offensive way (for example calling him a slimy blustering irresponsible bigot). So I won’t do that.

Instead, I’ll say that I would not wish this tragedy on anyone. As a Londoner, I find it highly offensive for Gibson to use these events as mere material for ill-considered attacks on the French.

As I said in a comment on Loic’s blog, “I know that the Brits and the French quite enjoy teasing each other but we also know when to show solidarity. As do most Americans. But not, it seems, this man.”

UPDATE: There may be two. Media Matters reports Fox News Washington Editor Brit Hume’s response to the bombings:

I mean, 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”

UPDATE 2: Neil Turner points to News Hounds, a site which maintains a critical watch on Fox News and its eccentric world view.
