Fox Host Compares Paris Hilton Jail Stay To Abu Ghraib

Reported by Donna - June 4, 2007 -

Fox and Friends was full of fluff this Monday morning. Except for a couple brief mentions of the Democratic debate, Fox and Friends kept their focus on fluff - especially the fact that Paris HIlton had reported to jail.

They had several segments on Paris Hilton and they started joking on one how she would have one free hour a day to shower or watch tv but she would not be able to talk on her cell phone. This is when host, Greg Kelly, filling in for Brian Kilmeade said that it sounded like "Abu Ghraib."

The whole group, found this hilarious and burst out into laughter.

Comment: Not only was the joke in bad taste, it was an insult to all the prisoners who suffered at Abu Ghraib. Comparing Paris Hilton without a cell phone to the deplorable conditions at Abu Ghraib is not the least bit funny.
