Fox News Producer Calls Elizabeth Edwards' Cancer a "Fundraising Gimmick"

This is bottom-feeder disgusting stuff. Look at this exchange between Fox News shill John Gibson and his exec producer "Angry Rich". What class. (Media Matters):
GIBSON: Our John Gibson program fraud alert today focuses on the biggest fraud running for president, and that takes some doing. We're talking about the Breck Girl, Silky, the former senator from North Carolina, the baron of a 28,000-square-foot manse, the protector of the poor while ensconced on a pillow of 100 million dollars.
ANGRY RICH: A man who whored his wife's cancer as a fundraising gimmick.
This is how they appeal to the Base. The right wing cannot sell its ideas (and certainly not its values, given the endless string of sexual hypocrites), so they just get in the gutter and fling excrement like this on the air.
