Miracles Abound on Studio B

Reported by Donna - October 10, 2005

Several times on Studio B with Shepard Smith which is self described as the 'news like no other' we were treated to not one miracle, but two!! No, make that three! What does that give you for watching Studio B? Indeed, the news like no other.

The top story with the banner 'Miracle' was that a two year old boy had been pulled from the rubble in Pakistan after three days without food or water. At approximately 3:13 a report by Mike Tobin revisited the miracle and said that a second miracle had just happened. The mother of the two year old had just been pulled from the rubble. (Comment: What are the chances of a mother being close to her two year old?) He told of the people around him saying 'God is great' when the little boy and his mother were pulled to safety. He waxed poetically at the end of his report by saying, "Miracles do, indeed happen" and noted that hopefully, we will be witness to more miracles.

Now, you might think that two miracles in one day are truly something, but Smith later reported in a Fox News Alert that two boys in Maryland had been rescued from a mud pit. In fact, Smith called it the "miracle in the mud."

Comments: Fox uses the word 'miracle' quite loosely. While there will inevitably be people who somehow manage to survive this horrible earthquake, approximately 20 to 30 thousand, maybe more ,died, with 2 1/2 million left without shelter. While 'happy stories' may rule the day on Fox, the truth of the matter is this was a very terrible tragedy with a huge loss of life. But Fox did report that it was believed that there were no American casualties in this earthquake. Is that a miracle?

As for the two boys in the mud pit, miracle? We report, you decide.
