From R. Miller:

Beyond despicable…when will the outrage meter be blown beyond repair?

When we were attacked, Paris said “We are all Americans.”

Now, Fox News is wishing Paris were attacked and “who’d care?”

Fox News host John Gibson stated one day before the attacks that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) “missed a golden opportunity” when it awarded the 2012 Olympic Games to London because if France had been selected to host the games, terrorists would “blow up Paris, and who cares?” Following the London attacks, Gibson reiterated that the IOC should have selected Paris instead of London because the British should “let somebody else be worried about guys with backpack bombs for a while.”

From the July 6 broadcast of Westwood One’s The Radio Factor with Bill O’Reilly, guest-hosted by Gibson:

GIBSON: By the way, just wanted to tell you people, we missed — the International Olympic Committee missed a golden opportunity today. If they had picked France, 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?

From the “My Word” segment of the July 7 edition of Fox News’ The Big Story With John Gibson:

GIBSON: The bombings in London: This is why I thought the Brits should let the

French have the Olympics — let somebody else be worried about guys with backpack bombs for a while.
