Is One Life More Important Than Another?

Reported by Donna - July 30, 2007 -

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith they had several breaking news alerts about Chief Justice John Roberts having fallen at his summer home in Massachusetts. Several people on the broadcast said that you don't want to take any chances when it's the Chief Justice they''re dealing with.

3 different people commented on this: Chief Washington Coorespondant, Jim Angle said that 'with him being the Cheif Justice, you don't take any chances.' This was followed up later on in the broadcast by a Doctor Jennifer Ashton who said that this was a precaution, 'something appropriate for someone in his political position.' Then Shepard Smith said they took him to the hospital probably because of who he is.

Comment: My question is -- why is one person's life more important than someone else's? If anyone else falls at their home, shouldn't they, too, be taken to the hospital as a precaution? Fox tried to make it like because of the position he held John Roberts life was more important.
