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.
Mr. Whittington needs to be transferred by lifeflight to Texas Heart Institute and have the folks who write the books on this kind of injury take care of him. If a 78 year old man becomes fragile because of hypostatic pneumonia, sepsis, increasing his myocardial infarction, or deep veinous thrombosis or any of a lot of potential complications, he need to have the talent where he is located. Better to transfer now while he is in the best shape, than let him deteriorate, and then transfer him in extremis.
I am glad I have to go back to work before the evening news. I am not sure how much more of this crap I can stomach!
If he dies, Cheney will resign.
Oh no, not Juan Williams.
Ever since Hurricane Katrina, their dignity tank is dangerously low, and their credibility is nil.
you make some good points here.
Well now, isn't that interesting....
thanks for posting that
Juliet is trash. There is neverending sexual innuendo between her and the co-host. It's too risque for daytime TV.
A lot of the talk is about what Juliet was doing over the weekend with her boyfriend. WHO THE HECK CARES?
I'd like to know what's up with Fox. They're covering the Cheney story like CNN or PMSNBC.
I just called her office and spoke with her assistant and told her that she needed to tell Dr. London that people are onto her .. that's she's not a cardiologist, though she called Fox News to comment on a cardiac matter,and that people now know she's an anti-Bush Democrat. Got that all in before the clunk .. I obviously dialed *67 first.
I don't know about Texas, but in my state of PA. it is very rare for someone to be prosecuted over a hunting accident.
Unless of course there is evidence that it was not an accident.
LOL! You GO!
I haven't watched Shep since his drama queen performance during Katrina....
Must be lonely at the top, they're having a race to the bottom.
No steel loads available commercially for the .28 gauge shell.
Wasn't Juliet married a few days last year?...I remember how she endlessly talked about her upcoming marriage...and then her marriage was over....I guess the groom got wise real fast..
Obviously they are not paying any attention to our emails.
"If he dies, Cheney will resign."
I'm glad somebody else said it. A lot of people here apparently think Cheney is indestructable. The only good thing about this tragedy is that Bush wasn't there.
Don't count on it.
Juliet is brain dead
In Texas people are prosecuted often for involuntary manslaughter for automobile accidents. THIS WAS AN ACCIDENT. But the media will hound Cheney relentlessly as well as the county and state prosecutors. Perhaps a lawyer on this thread might weigh in on this possibility.
Good - but I hope it doesn't keep her from her patients - those wrinkles can be painful! ;^)
Good morning. "Would it be steel or lead shot?" Isn't lead shot illegal for some idiotic reason to do with the environmental.

Shh! It was most likely Pb.
I think you are jumping the "gun" a bit. Except for Dr. London, all reports are that the man is just fine.
However, that said, I always thought that Cheney would resign by 2007 due to health reasons. That way President Bush gets to put a person in place for the 2008 nomination.
Putting him in ICU could have been precautionary, due to his age, the possibility of infection, and also to keep busybodies away. If he's in ICU, only family members are allowed in. It may be that ICU was requested so that the press wouldn't have access to the area or the people who work there. There could be a number of reasons.
If Whittington does die, Cheney will feel like crap without having the media around beating him up for 3 years. Wouldn't hold it against him if he did retire.
Yes, the jokes have been funny, but on a serious note, I cannot imagine how AWFUL the VP must feel. I'd be beside myself if I had done something like that to someone.
She's brilliant, speaks well and is BEAUTIFUL!
pos # 16, 46, 67
Feel free to post one of these to lighten up this thread.
LOL...good for you
Agree, and I certainly hope not. IMO his resignation would be mistaken by the dims for an admission that this was something more than an accident.
I missed that. She surely does not act like a married woman
I wish FOX would bring back Linda Vester. She is a class act.
Shep talking about how many emails they're getting...mostly it seems from people who aren't happy with the way the PRESS is handling this.
Sigh. Guess my gender is clear, but I don't even think she's attractive. My hubby likes the reporterettes with an "exotic" look. Like Kiran Chetry. I think he mentioned Patti Ann Brown. Doesn't like blondes. I just don't get the dumb airhead thing. I find it a turnoff, but then I think above the waist.
I sent one! Maybe he's talking about ME!
I'm amazed Cheney even ran for re-election. The lefties hate him much more than Bush or Karl Rove.
If Cheney dies, will Whittington resign?
No...she's not married anymore...the marriage only lasted a souple of weeks...
< I want ONE reliable news source on TV OR the print media. >
Al Jazeera? You can relie on them to be anti-American in every story. I call that reliable.
Nah, it's OK if McClellen knew yesterday. (Note I said if.)
Would have been inappropriate for him to release further medical info. Breach of confidentiality. Besides, the doctors may have been doing further testing at that point and the heart attack thing was simply suspected and not confirmed.
didn't they xray this guy?
Shep is another one that Fox needs to get rid of. Right after they give Juliette the boot.
She's on maternity leave. I think she's supposed to be back later this year.
Yeah, what's up with this Dr. London? I was channel surfing just after the story broke, and I heard this woman with lots of feedback coming through her phone hollering about how part of Mr. Whittington's heart has died, and how his condition is critical and she made it sound as if he's barely clinging to life. Martha MacCallum basically let her rant on. They had Dr. London on twice, and made her sound like she was initmately knowlegable of the situation.
< Oh no, not Juan Williams. >
You mean Wrong Wuan?
I wonder if Fox News means the birdshot went south for the winter?
