Not really a World Affair as such, so I chucked it in this section.

Fox News' John Gibson found a way to outdo MSNBC's Courtney Hazlett for the most inappropriate comment on Heath Ledger's death. ThinkProgress reports that, on his radio show yesterday (which opened with funeral music), Gibson called Ledger a "weirdo" with a "serious drug problem." Making fun of the famous "I wish I knew how to quit you" line from "Brokeback Mountain," Gibson said of his death, "Well, he found out how to quit you."

This is not Gibson's first time making inappropriate comments in the wake of tragedy. In July 2005, just one day before the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London, Gibson said that "the International Olympic Committee missed a golden opportunity....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?" The next day, after the London bombings, Gibson repeated the remarks.

That's the land of talk radio. Not to defend his comments, but Gibson has a history of mocking certain news stories, especially Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and other celebrity stories he is forced to cover on TV. I think his radio show is his way of venting his frustration with the lack of serious news coverage in the TV media.

Like I said, that doesn't justify his comments.

He's looking for controversy and attention. He's one of those people it's better to just ignore. =]
