Fox News host views London attacks as 'an advantage' (video)

We know the talking heads of Fox aren't the most brilliant bulbs in the bunch, but this one takes the cake. MediaMatters documented Fox News host Brian Kilmeade's commentary on the London attacks' relationship to the G8 Summit: "I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together."

UPDATE: Brit Hume jumps into the fray of "advantages" of the London attacks: "I mean, my first thought when I heard -- just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, 'Hmmm, time to buy.'"
