  • An open letter to Shepherd Smith and other news anchors of note

    Yesterday as I was watching the Paris attacks unfold I heard Fox anchor Shepherd Smith repeatedly and somberly stating that the world has forever changed and life as we know it will never be the same et cetera et cetera. Now while my heart goes out to the victims of these many attacks on French soil, those who report the news need to realize something. The savages which perpetrate these attacks revel in causing sadness and misery and disorder. When you go on national television and carry on about how this attack has changed life as we know it - that's like goat porn to these inbreeds. They love hearing that. You are literally giving them something to get off on.

    Whenever there is a terror attack - or mass shooting or any kind of violent action perpetrated by some attention ***** d-bag then the projection of attitude should be that nothing has changed. Even if life has changed, even if there is sadness, declaring this on mass media is giving terrorists and other mass murderers the attention they want and allowing them to view the sadness they want everyone to experience.

    Mourners will need to mourn and they should be comforted but when it comes to media projected messages, the only message that terrorists should get is that our free nations are still free and there is nothing ISIS gutter trash can do about it.

    Terrorists struck. The terrorists are now dead and French people still stand tall. Vive la France and Islamists.
    A new life awaits you in the off world colonies; the chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure!

    Agreed. I think they do it to sound melodramatic. It's about them rather than the reality that they're supposed to be reporting on.

      Agreed, this was just idiotic, and the greatest possible encouragement to the Jihadists that any news cater could have given them.
      Shame on the one guy at Fox that I thought would always be rock-solid... and shame on anyone at the Media who thinks they have to drone on for hours saying nothing new every time anything like this happens.

        He was also incorrect, since the day the world changed forever was on 9/11 in America. Europe is just now getting their first taste of that kind of organized and coordinated terrorism.

        Perhaps now, Europeans will begin to realize that welcoming illegals from Muslim nations is a highly dangerous thing to do, and failing to integrate the legal ones is even more dangerous.

          Remember 9/11? The media ran and reran that for days on end. It's what the media does.

          To NOT report on this would be a far greater crime.

            Would it be a stretch to ask them to do it in a more intelligent way?

            Meaning; when they have nothing to say that is relevant and factual, try not saying anything, eh?

              What you won't hear from the media and weak kneed politicians like Obama is, that this calls for serious payback.

              Instead they will call for "Justice" and those responsible to "arrested," as if this was a mere criminal act by some common thugs.

              Those like Obama no longer understand, if they ever did, the difference between police and the military, civilian justice systems and war. Obama and his ilk see these as interchangeable. Hence, soldiers are tried for not acting like police but rather for doing their job as soldiers. In such a mindset, the West has already lost. Defeating a growing Islamic terror threat and the war that will follow it can't be done using police and courts. Yet, that is precisely what those like Obama want done.

                Hi P1982

                Agreed.

                The segment where they had a live interview with Geraldo Rivera, whose daughter was in Paris (along with another 2 million souls) was particularly toe curling.
                I'm not sure why he thought he needed to share his obvious concern about his daughter via his employer-FNC and why FNC thought it deserved airtime given the real grief and events unfolding minute by minute. Basically it looked like filler as they struggled to come up with actual facts to fill their often hyperbolic reporting.

                Regards

                  If you are dealing with non-state actors, how do you do serious payback? What country should we punish for this? We are bombing ISIS cities and camps, where we know that they are holed up. If we bombed lots of cities in Syria, where ISIS is not in large numbers then you kill lots of innocent people, some of whom may not even be Sunni Muslim. Even Ted Cruz says step up the bombings and tolerate more civilian casualties. But where? Who do we bomb to kill more civilians. That sort of stuff never broke the will of the English or the Germans during WWII or even when London was being bombed frequently by IRA bombers in the conflict with N Ireland. They just settled down and suffered and hated more.

                  The main doers of the deeds in Paris have been killed or dare we assume captured. The survivor terrorists will have their brains picked apart until the French know as much as they know. They may get a name or two of folks to go hunting for. And the French will likely kill them.

                    Rule 1 in this sort of thing: Follow the money. Where is the funding for these groups coming from? Find those political entities behind the scenes and deal with them... Oh, wait... We can't because it's aholes like the Saudis and Iran behind it.

                    Well, we could always take them out, plant our flag on what used to be their sand, sell their oil instead of them, and generally show all the other aholes in the Middle East what it means to mess with the biggest guys on the playground.

                    I think it would hilarious to see the House of Saud whining about how terrible the West is as they overrun the country. We could tell them "Maybe you should have used all this cash you have to buy an army instead of buying off the opposing factions..."

                      That's what we should have done post 9/11.

                        Then you had the point where they got his daughter on the phone and had an interview/distressed father conversation live.

                        I give Fox more leeway than most here and even I was cringing. Switch the mike off and talk about something else while he's comforting his daughter. Give the man and the girl some respect.

                          Yeah ok. Obama has the best track record when it comes to counter-terrorism compared to any recent President. What more should he be doing? Where else should we be fighting right now?

                          There’s Osama bin Laden , of course, killed in May.

                          Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Anwar al-Awlaki as of today.

                          Earlier this month officials confirmed that al Qaeda’s chief of Pakistan operations, Abu Hafs al-Shahri , was killed in Waziristan, Pakistan.

                          In August, ‘Atiyah ‘Abd al-Rahman , the deputy leader of al Qaeda was killed.

                          In June, one of the group’s most dangerous commanders, Ilyas Kashmiri, was killed in Pakistan. In Yemen that same month, AQAP senior operatives Ammar al-Wa’ili, Abu Ali al-Harithi, and Ali Saleh Farhan were killed. In Somalia, Al-Qa’ida in East Africa (AQEA) senior leader Harun Fazul was killed.

                          Administration officials also herald the recent U.S./Pakistani joint arrest of Younis al-Mauritani in Quetta.

                          Going back to August 2009, Tehrik e-Taliban Pakistan leader Baitullah Mahsud was killed in Pakistan.

                          In September of that month, Jemayah Islamiya operational planner Noordin Muhammad Top was killed in Indonesia, and AQEA planner Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan was killed in Somalia.

                          Then in December 2009 in Pakistan, al Qaeda operational commanders Saleh al-Somali and ‘Abdallah Sa’id were killed.

                          In February 2010, in Pakistan, Taliban deputy and military commander Abdul Ghani Beradar was captured; Haqqani network commander Muhammad Haqqani was killed; and Lashkar-e Jhangvi leader Qari Zafar was killed.

                          In March 2010, al Qaeda operative Hussein al-Yemeni was killed in Pakistan, while senior Jemayah Islamiya operative Dulmatin - accused of being the mastermind behind the 2002 Bali bombings – was killed during a raid in Indonesia.

                          In April 2010, al Qaeda in Iraq leaders Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi were killed.

                          In May, al Qaeda’s number three commander, Sheik Saeed al-Masri was killed.

                          In June 2010 in Pakistan, al Qaeda commander Hamza al-Jawfi was killed.

                            This post shows a complete lack of understanding for the region. The US already profited from the Saudi oil fields and still are profiting to an extent today.

                            Destabilizing Saudi Arabia would be insane right now for a large multitude of reasons. More importantly though, by your logic we should attack ourselves as well, since we too have funded terrorists groups.

                              That's the fault of the 24-hour cable news cycle. You have so many hours to fill, and the audience doesn't want slow and insightful examinations of current events. That doesn't sell. So instead you have them repeating the news ad nauseum for the sake of new viewers to keep them involved and because they don't have anything new to say.
