The Dixie Chicks are "Mocking Patriotic Americans," Not "Standing Up For What They Believe"

Reported by Melanie - June 20, 2006

Yesterday Neil Cavuto hosted a segment criticizing the Dixie Chicks for "mocking patriotic Americans" after they gave an interview to the London Daily Telegraph and stood up for what they believe in.

Today (June 20, 2006), Cavuto hosted a segment about first responders to the World Trade Center who are suffering from, and in some cases dying of, illnesses they contracted after breathing the contaminated air there and who are organizing to fight for help with their medical bills from the state and federal government, something they're not now getting.

Promoting the segment, Cavuto said:

Well, they're forgotten heroes but I'll tell you what, they're not forgotten by us. Why these first responders after 9/11 may be lying down in sick beds but are standing up for what they believe in.

Some folks who will make you proud, coming up on Your World.

Comment: On Fox, the difference between "mocking" and "standing up" for what you believe in depends on what you believe in.
