Unacceptable, but not terribly surprising.

If you are "Conservative" and have at least a 10th grade reading level, you should be reading your news from the Wall Street Journal. As far as what is broadcast on Foxnews or AM talk radio - people will just nod their heads and drool all the same.

So because they retweeted it it makes them associated with what they said? Maybe they were trying to point out how distasteful it was.

EDIT: I just looked at the tweet in question. Nothing about cancer even mentioned.

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.
I knew this person had done something wrong when even conservatives were bashing them.

I agree with you. I've not heard any inflammatory rhetoric about Carter's cancer. Though, I'm not on FOX all day, so I may have missed it.

There has been a noticeable increase in FOX bashing threads lately. Maybe, just maybe, the progressive lefts are in damage control and panic mode because of the dismal approval ratings their Queen has been garnering.

#tcot is all you need to know.

As a cancer survivor, I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone - even on those who seem to take glee in Carter's diagnosis or wish the same upon Obama (as we saw in the other thread on this forum).
