The "Ugly American".....Fox, Limbaugh And Howard Stern Fan Prank Caller

Fox News reporter pleased his management team and producers, but drew scorn from another Fox personality.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren sharply criticized Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes for "very bad taste" over tweeting petty attacks on the president in response to the deadly crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.
Starnes has tweeted that Obama isn't "interested" in the crash because it doesn't involve "beer or golf," "Russia bracing for a severe hash tag from the Obama Administration," and "Obama won't comment on Malaysian jetliner crash until he's had a chance to read tomorrow's paper."

Huntington Post on the opportunist Limbaugh as he feeds his flock of sycophants.

The radio show host called the disaster "an opportunity" for media outlets to distract viewers from the controversy surrounding President Obama and US border security. He suspected that CNN had already swept the immigration crisis under the rug andretreated back to its "wall-to-wall" coverage of the plane. 
Limbaugh called the whole thing "very eery."

We offer a finale that doesn't poke at the the pathetic state of conservative America. During a segment of yesterday's The Cycle, Krystal Ball and Cycle producers efforts to perform emergency studio news broadcasting fell victim to a prank caller. 

We do not criticize Krystal Ball for the live (on-air) prank.  Susceptibility to such subterfuge is inherent in media effort to "one-up" the competition with "scoop" coverage. Since, some of you spend time listening to Jock shows like Stern's show, the name also falls on you.  Trash begets trash and trash was taken to a new level when we consider the deaths of 200 plus innocent people.  While, we have taken our criticism outside the realm of Right-wing ignorance and feeding garbage to viewers, we do feel there is a conservative lean towards the prank call.  Let's face it, the prank caller didn't make it on Fox News. Of course, we do not know if the caller attempted to invade a Fox News broadcast.

Immigration Ugliness!

A Papal View

"This humanitarian emergency requires, as a first urgent measure, these children be welcomed and protected. These measures, however, will not be sufficient, unless they are accompanied by policies that inform people about the dangers of such a journey and, above all, that promote development in their countries of origin." Pope Francis. Vatican Radio

Huntington Post on Pope Francis and Central American migration to the US.

Pope Francis: Immigrant Children Must Be 'Welcomed And Protected'


While Pope Francis delivered his message, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin spoke at Mexico's Foreign Relations Secretariat and urged clergy and foreign ministers to protect young migrants. 
"Whether they travel for reasons of poverty, violence or the hope of uniting with families on the other side of the border," Parolin said, "it is urgent to protect and assist them, because their frailty is greater and they're defenseless, they're at the mercy of any abuse or misfortune."

A Jon Stewart, Daily Show, expose'


And, a CNN segment that lays the ugliness out for all to see.

CNN host Carol Costello tackled once shameful exhibition of Americanism gone mad. The nine plus minute segment includes not only background on the Pinal County Arizona citizens protest, Costello secured an interview with the local sheriff. Sheriff Paul Babeu, was reported to have informed activist groups of the pending bus journey to a relief center.

            These people are naive, this is America 

We as a nation can rest assured people who are seeking to escape the horrors of their homelands, will not be welcomed in most US communities.  

Wonder why we did not see the same level of disgust, chants of "USA, USA, USA" and ugly protest as the US migrated thousands for Eastern European wars and associated genocide?
