Keep Those Cards & Letters Coming

Reported by Melanie - January 3, 2005

At the end of almost every show, Neil Cavuto (Your World w/Neil Cavuto) reads several viewer emails, often on two or three different topics. Cavuto has been on vacation for the last two weeks. I don't recall whether substitute hosts Terry Keenan or Brenda Buttner read any letters during Cavuto's first week off, but Stuart Varney, who substituted for Cauvto last week, did not. Therefore, I would image there were quite a few emails in Cavuto's inbox when he got to work today (January 3, 2005).

I've watched Cavuto return from vacation before. He usually reads emails about how beautiful the women who substituted for him were, or how much he was missed, or how much he wasn't missed. Today was different. I thought his choice of emails was interesting. Here's what he said:

"You know, all of this fuss over how much aid the US is giving in tsunami relief was a big topic on our weekend shows. Lots of reaction to Jim Rogers' suggestion that the US not be involved in donating money to anyone. [Email.] J. Kahn of Westerville, Ohio. I agree 300% with Jim. I think we need to keep our aid donations away from the UN and the politicians. [Email.] Brian Cantwell in Oscada, Michigan. I really agree with Jim Rogers about charity beginning at home. I am in shock, but when we rebuild the homes of those in Florida and elsewhere, maybe we can then give to the elite resorts and Europeans. Sorry for the poor, but they will never get it anyway. Brian, I think you're being a tad jaded there."

Cavuto then read two emails about the airline industry and one love letter from a fan.

COMMENT: Cavuto may think Brian's being a "tad jaded there" but he nonetheless read Brian's letter on the air. Given that Cavuto said there was "lots of reaction," isn't it interesting that Cavuto picked two letters which were both against the UN (And oh, "the poor, but they will never get it anyway?" How cold.)? What a sly way to get a message out.
