Michael J.W. Stickings, The Reaction: I've said it before and I'll say it again: Fox News's John Gibson is an asshole of astounding proportions. His latest outburst of assholery? -- mocking the death of Heath Ledger, mocking both Ledger himself and the circumstances of his death. I'm with Pam and Chris on this: Gibson is a sick, sick man, and he deserves to be fired, to be banished from the airwaves. But of course it's Fox, where Gibson's bigotry, ignorance, and idiocy -- which is to say, the many components that make up the gaping spectrum of his assholery -- are right at home. A network of assholes extraordinaire is not about to fire one of its most exemplary hosts.
