Can’t think of enough derisive adjectives for the latest Fox News “Feature” in which an inane panel derides Canada’s military, displaying an alarming thin grasp of the realm of fact generally, not just with respect to Canada. Fox doesn’t have or deserve a lot of respect, but the low here is astounding. Obnoxious doesn’t begin to cover it… a news channel that airs a moronic commentary like this with an imbecile saying he didn’t realize Canada was even in the war in Afghanistan. And this on a day when four Canadian soldiers died in Afghanistan, bringing our total to 116.
The arrogance and shallowness in this clip is astonishing. And Americans wonder why the rest of the world holds such a low opinion of them. Fox News should be turfing all these guys out on the street and issuing a formal apology. But of course, perhaps this is the form of drivel their audience demands. I am somewhat consoled by the fact that I know my intelligent American friends would be embarrassed by this display, proving that American citizens aren’t all rude, arrogant, and obnoxious. But a network airing something like this gives me great concern for the ratio.
