FOX News Continues To Impress…

FOX News Continues To Impress...

This is slightly old news, but its horribly enraging so I’m posting anyway: Douchebag Fox News host
John Gibson made a complete ass of himself yesterday by poking fun at Heath Ledger’s death.

The Huffington Post sums it up:

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.”

You can listen to the whole disgusting rant here and you can send e-mails along the lines of “fire John Gibson” to any or all of these addresses:

Gibson’s email: john.gibson@foxnews.com
Show’s email: myword@foxnews.com
Network’s email: yourcomments@foxnews.com
CEO of Fox News: roger.ailes@foxnews.com

He managed to take the crown for rudest Heath Ledger comment from that little skank over at MSNBC, Courtney Hazlett, who remarked, “In a lot of ways, this reminds me – we’ve almost had a dress rehearsal for this with Owen Wilson.”

Gibson responded to critims by saying that it was just “a little Brokeback Mountain joke” and there is “no point in passing up a good joke.”
