We're Supportive - When Forced to Be

Reported by Nancy - July 2, 2005 -

Thursday (6/30) on Dayside, Linda Vester hosted Linda Armstrong Kelly, Lance Armstrong's mother. She was invited on to discuss his farewell tour, and a large card that is being given to him as a thank-you from his fans.

Comments: For the first time since I have begun watching Vester, she prominently displayed the yellow "Live Strong" bracelet that many Americans are wearing in support of Armstrong, and his bout with testicular cancer. It's extremely hypocritical to wear such a show of support purely because a member of his family is on the show to discuss his achievements. Does Vester actually care about those living with cancer, or was this another phony show of support that Fox uses to appear patriotic and play to the hearts of their viewers? We'll see if she's wearing it tomorrow!
