Whoever "Debbie Schlussel" is, made an unclassy tweet.

The FoxNews tweet in context isn't bad, it wasn't referencing his cancer, the person sending it might not even have known he had it.

well its certainly poor taste. Im not sure how "foxnews" is to blame for it.

two people said some stuff....


were you this upset when some liberals made a movie about the assassination of George W. Bush? I mean he was president at the time and liberals projected to the point of making a moving about killing him...

I thought Charles Hurt is a political columnist for The Washington Times.
Is he supposed to be some sort of spokesman for FOX?

Applaud his cancer? Trying to follow Obama and 'rewrite history'?

“Our country has not been as aimless & lost as it is today since, I think, Jimmy Carter…It’s probably even worse today.”

Where exactly in that tweet is anyone applauding his cancer or even directly attacking Carter? People have been saying that about the current administration for years. Did they tweet this before or after Carters announcement? It wouldn't be surprising if it was before and the progressives went nuts over it and got their panties in a bunch.

a thinly veiled insult of this nature is actually worse than saying "YAY, _____ has cancer".

They never miss an opportunity to look like the gossip/editorial rag they are.

I never heard of her before, but just looked up some of her previous tweets and entries on Facebook.

Low class to the max.

A good education doesn't do magic.

I don't know why anyone would either make fun of someone having cancer or wish cancer on anyone...especially knowing it can happen to anyone, including YOURSELF. A poster from here the other day wished cancer on the President. That was shameful and sad, imo.

Yea, I thought the same exact thing. A non-story.

I have no idea if this is a credible site or not, but they do capture the actual Tweets.

Angry Twitter users hammer Fox News for insulting Jimmy Carter on day he announced cancer diagnosis

Disclaimer - I can't stand Carter's legacy, but this is beyond the pale.
A stretch, anything to discredit FOX.

Hey, how about that Cheyney and his heart problems.....now that is unabashed hatred from the same people who look for microscopic shards that can be turned into a hate FOX article using a drug induced imagination.
