Skip to comments.Whittington Back in ICU (FNC Reporting Minor Heart Attack)
Posted on 02/14/2006 10:09:50 AM PST by be-baw
I just heard from a local radio reporter (during Rush newsbreak at approximately 1:00 p.m) that Whittington "may have taken a turn for the worse," and was put back into intensive care.
Yum! Thank you!
But why borrow sorrow? It's your perrogative to speculate to your hearts content, but I simply find it to be unproductive (especially given the positive medical reports as we know them so far) and a waste of time and energy.
Returning the due respect, I also find it to be a distraction to the thread. But we've been battling trolls all over these threads today and I suppose I'm just becoming weary of it.
I am NOT alleging you are a troll, btw. :^)
I hope you're one soon too! There's nothing so precious as grand children!
That will take a lot of beating with that snazola of his.
Since you're getting into cultural insults, "Deliver,"
it would be awfully tempting to stereotype you as a dumb redneck who isn't capable of reading a long sentence and understanding it.
But I won't do that. I'll just assure you that while I do eat lots of salad, it is not a matter of being opposed to meat on cultural or ethical grounds. It's because I am at high risk for cardiovascular disease. Also, it makes me feel healthier than my old, red-state diet did.
Other than that and a couple of other things, I'm basically a Middle American, more comfortable with most FReepers than with most "blue" Rats.
There are many, many people like me in California. Your hatred of California reminds me of the anti-Americanism abroad. While there is some basis for it, it is still basically irrational, and the haters should look in the mirror and ask themselves what it's really about.
Hate people for how they behave, not for where they live.
Good job, Starwise! THIS is the best FNC could come up with? She must be related to someone on the staff there.
If you ever get to SC, I'll make you some :-)
I heard on CNN that it was asymptomatic Atrial Fibrillation.
Hey Dinosaur Media, WE, the American Voters, understand that accidents happen. They happen to us all the time and NONE of your butt clowns in the Failed Media even notice. This hissy fit is making the Junk Journalists look stupid. It hurts the VP and the GOP NOT at all!
Right now the American people probably do understand the accident and it probably isn't hurting Cheney. But that's right now. Things can morph, however unreasonably. Again, my concern is based on the possibility of the medical situation going completely sour. We must hope and pray that it doesn't.
(small one preferably)
They could be 6'6" and still be small.
I am going to have to give you my moniker...for you truly are a SLEUTH!!!...LOL
There are no reasonable alternatives in the modern world, I grant you. But if it were me I'd be unreasonable and check out of the hospital, fibrillations notwithstanding. Almost everybody in my family has either died or had a close brush with death because of a hospital stay---something that would not have happened but for the hospital. So I'm sort of biased. :)
ME TOO, and their damn logo caused 'burn in' on my HiDef screen.
I googled and can't find any links to each other -- other than the obvious last names and politics; which is too cooincidental for my taste.

You are running headlong into a Zot!, CaliPap...what can I do to help?
All this time I thought my husband was the only one that watched the cattle auctions, we really pick on him about his RFDTV viewing.LOL
It SHOULD mean that her patients should find themselves a real doctor...fast.
My......we ARE misinformed, aren't we??
Your bullet points, which you probably wish were real bullets but aren't, are distinctly unimpressive in this context.
None of them alter the fact that Kerry nearly defeated Bush, I think because of the MSM. While some of the points do indeed reflect well on the Republican effort, they merely help to explain why Bush managed to eke out a victory. They do not change the fact that he almost didn't -- in other words, that the election was uncomfortably close, especially for an incumbent with a decent economy and an unattractive, very liberal opponent.
Thank God and FNC for Brit Hume.
I am watching now too.
and he gave the most informative explanation of this "heart attack" that I've seen all day.
No, I'm not "misinformed." You are dangerously complacent.
Bush's numbers could be much worse, and have been slightly worse. But all things considered, they would be much higher if not for the hostile Rat MSM. And, no, mid-40s isn't particularly good.
I want to hear from HIS cardiovascular surgeon.
I just visited World Net Daily. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/
They have an interview with Kathryn Garcia the Corpus Christi
Gazette reporter who received the call about the accident.
1. She got the call 11am Sunday morning
2. She called WH to verify the story, which they did, which proves Cheney DID notify Bush
3. She regrets saying this kind of accident happens frequently. (Why?)
LOL!! Believe me, I earned it ... :)
I'm just getting caught up on the thread. Thanks to him for doing that. I was pretty durn angry too.
Ditto and ditto.
In my e-mail to him today I said he is THE ONLY sane and raional member of the media:)
We had a time line here on one of the threads.
That horrid doctor really went off limits for him to complain. He usually sits back and calls them media harlots and derides their spiel because it's usually vanilla blather. Not so, in London's case.
Yep. You're right and that's why he was happy to leave ABC for the upstart, FNC!
Thanks to howlin for this timeline:
Here is the timeline:
5:50 p.m. CST - shooting
6:30 p.m. CST - Cheney's ambulance removes Whittington from the field.
***Note it is at least a 20 minute ride back to the main ranch -- only then do they get on the way to the local hospital.
Whittington taken to local hospital, examined, treated.
Whittington helicoptered to Corpus Christi Hospital.
***Secret Service had notified the local police within an hour of the accident.
7:30 p.m. CST -- White House notified and Andy Card calls Bush.
8:00 p.m. CST or there about -- Rove calls Bush to tell him Cheney is involved.
***Cheney goes to the hospital with Whittington.
Sunday morning, 8:00 a.m. CST -- Cheney meets with sheriff.
8:00 a.m. -- Armstrong begins trying to contact Reporter Powell, finally gives up and gives the story to reporter at 11:00 a.m. CST
Paper immediately puts the story up because Garcia (reporter) says that they called the White House to confirm before they put the story up.
She was patched through to Cheney's spokesperson McBride.
She said that as soon as they put the story on their web site they began receiving calls from all over the country -- so why did it take the MSM until 3 EST to get the story?
Thanks for doing the search.
agree re: McClellan..way out of his league. Always wondered why Karen Hughes did not put someone else in this place (or even herself, though I think she likes her current position better). I think the time is ripe for a new person. Immediately.
Here comes "the panel" to defend the WH press corps.
Brit says if his email is any indication, the public is incensed more at the press corps.
And, Brit adds, today he got a little more.
Mora is hoping that much of the public does not watch the WH press briefings. Stupid Mora doesn't understand talk radio. It's repeated, and repeated and repeated, in national and also local talk radio.
"The haters should look in the mirror and ask themselves what it's really about."
I find the juxtaposition of those two statements fascinating. The use of "haters" as a noun is so incredibly DUmmie in orientation...are you a DUmmie sleeper, by chance?
Your husband and my cat ought to get together sometime. LOL
Yes, that's part of the reason I asked the question. If the MSM couldn't get Cheney on the shooting accident they would go after him for damaging the environmental wildlife.( a degree of sarcasm)
The case revolves around the study that lead is eaten by foraging wildlife and blah blah blah.
Mora is dense. I see that more and more every time I force myself to endure her.
I saw an interview with Brit on Washington Journal a few years ago. They profiled some of the well-known faces of FOX News. (CSPAN shares the same building as FNC's DC bureau). Brit was asked about his work at ABC, and he said he hasn't looked back on it since joining up with FOX.
Yep, those are the correct pellet sizes.
Ceci Connolly is only watchable with the mute on.
