Fox News pundits ignore National Anthem, continue their chatter
I was watching Fox News to see the opening of the Republican National Convention when to my shock and disappointment both Megyn Kelley and Brit Hume decided to continue their discussion of Governor Chris Christy rather than show respect to our country and cut to the singing of the National Anthem and invocation; both of which were so loud in the background that Kelly and Hume had to speak up while they were going on.
Assuming both Kelly and Hume are American citizens, their highly disrespectful actions were in stark contrast to what we saw during the 2012 London Olympics when Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who I'm pretty sure is not an American citizen, had the respect and decency to stop an interview and HONOR the playing of the U.S. National Anthem - from all the way across the stadium.
Shame on you Megyn Kelly and Brit Hume, and shame on you Fox News for putting punditry and programming ahead of America.
We deserve an apology.
