No matter how you think we should proceed, the bottom line is, we all want things to improve. At least that's what I thought until I caught a show on Fox Business Network last month (Monday, Aug. 27, 6:45 a.m., to be exact).
On “Imus in the Morning,” four women, all Fox News personalities, were discussing the financial state of the country, each giving her perspective on the latest economic indicators.
One, Cheryl Casone, host of “Cashin' In” on FNC, uttered a statement so astonishing I had to rewind a half-dozen times to make sure I heard her correctly. She said, quoting exactly, “Unfortunately, the economy seems to be getting a little bit better.”
She actually used the term “Unfortunately” to begin her sentence.
I don't care what your political leanings are; the fact that someone has the gall to say it was “unfortunate” that things are looking up should just blow your mind. I re-ran the tape again to make sure I did not miss something or take her statement out of context. I didn't.
To coin an old cliche, if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem. With an attitude and a bias like that, Ms. Casone is definitely part of the problem.
