Only in America
It's Sunday morning in New Orleans. The biggest storm in the history of the world since the Creation is bearing down on you. In a few hours it will hit with a 20-foot storm surge, and 175 mph winds. Gusts to 200, they say. You're in a city the best part of which is actually below sea level. That's right: You have to look UP toward the Mississippi River. If the levees break, you're immediately under 10 feet of water from the river.
Enter live network reporting by Fox News, generating the following exchange:
SHEPARD SMITH: You're live on FOX News Channel, what are you doing?
MAN: Walking my dogs.
SMITH: Why are you still here? I'm just curious.
MAN: None of your fucking business.
SMITH: Oh that was a good answer, wasn't it? That was live on international television. Thanks so much for that. You know we apologize.
SMITH: "I'm watching two dogs drink out of a glass of ice water, and it's none of my business why they are still here."
Well, actually, it IS none of your business, Shep!
