How Are Mick Jagger and Cindy Sheehan Connected?

Reported by Deborah - August 12, 2005

Fox is trying to get the NFL to cancel Mick Jagger's contract because he wrote a song they consider anti-American. Yesterday on Fox & Friends the issue was raised with an impromptu poll and last night Brian Kilmeade took the campaign to The Factor. Kilmeade and John Gibson had the traditional Fox smear rally getting viewers to turn on Jagger for speaking out against the war and their President Bush.

Comment:Although Fox has worked overtime trying to turn viewers against Cindy Sheehan, they can only go so far smearing a grief stricken Mom. Mick Jagger, however, is an easy target allowing people to make the connection on their own.

Kilmeade claimed that 500 people responded in the first 20 minutes of the F&F poll and 99% were outraged at Jagger. Gibson stated that families who have lost loved ones in Iraq will be furious if Jagger plays at the superbowl.

Then Gibson mentioned that Keith Richards distanced himself from the song adding that Richards lives in Connecticut.He added that Richards has to see people and drive his kid to school. Gibson was sure that Keith Richards would be seriously shunned by his community because of the song.

Then Gibson wondered why a "Brit" band would play at the Superbowl and Kilmeade made a derogatory reference to Jaggers age.

Comment: According to Kilmeade and Gibson everyone in the country supports the war in Iraq and the President. Their message was clear that anyone who speaks out against the war ( like Cindy Sheehan) is in the minority: considered a nut; and will be shunned by respectable folk. Sucks for Fox that people aren't falling for it.
