Fox's John Gibson - Mocks Death of Heath Ledger

Sometimes the term “scumbag” gets redefined. This time it is by the Fox radio “personality” John Gibson. His mocking of the death of Heath Ledger was so far beyond anything tasteless I have heard he has reserved himself a place beside the word “scumbag” in the dictionary.

Here is some of his “humor” as noted on

Playing an audio clip of the iconic quote, “I wish I knew how to quit you” from Ledger’s gay romance movie Brokeback Mountain, Gibson disdainfully quipped, “Well, he found out how to quit you.” Laughing, Gibson then played another clip from Brokeback Mountain in which Ledger said, “We’re dead,” followed by his own, mocking “We’re dead” before playing the clip again.

Gibson is not only tasteless, his “jokes” must feel pretty funny to Ledger’s family. My question to Gibson, whose death would Jesus mock? Time to get Gibson and the entire Fox network off the public air waves.

John Gibson is less than human. If FOX News really wants to be fair and balanced, they will terminate Gibson's contract immediately. He can rant on the radio, but any News Channel should distance themsleves from this behavior.
