Local affiliate of Fox News. I hate to say it, but what an insensitive comment. What an idiot!

    Ok, I see. I didn't think I'd ever heard of her before on the 'Fair and Balanced' Fox.

    Now she's explaining she didn't know what it meant and never heard it before. Then why did she say jigaboo? Was she possessed when she uttered it, speaking in tongues or something?

    Would any of US suddenly speak a word we don't know? Does she have some preternatural form of Tourette Syndrome? icon_rolleyes.gif

    Rather, I think she suffers from "Fox News Syndrome". Which means you say something outrageously offensive and/or false on-air, and then you either deny it or refuse to address it.

    "Fox News Syndrome" inflicts the entire network, at all levels.

    Yeah, Autocorrect is probably using your search history or words that frequently relate to your particular interests, thus it offers you "Metamucil".

    I don't know, PresentMind, I've had autocorrect do all sorts of heinous things. I am however, Metamucil age. You'll be there very soon.

    Relying on Metamucil isn't about your age. In another thread you referred to yourself as Dr. Flatulence.

    Get more daily movement in your life and you'll be able to toss the Metamucil.

    RealJock is a great lifestyle reminder, even in the Politics section.

    Sorry, Presentmind, no Metamucil, only Norvasc and Metformim, which means sumthin a little more serious than metemucil.

    See now Al Sharpton, who has used many racial and anti gay slurs is celebrated on a NATIONAL BROADCASTING COMPANY.
    No one seems to be bothered by that.
