Fox’s John Gibson was forced to apologise for his remarks about Heath Ledger being a “weirdo” with a “serious drug addiction” and for opening his show by playing the funeral march and inserting soundgrabs from Brokeback Mountain.

The whole process of protecting advertiser revenue by quarantining the oft inane, hateful ramblings of the lucrative right wing talking heads is now, post-Imus, quite well rehearsed and so that’s why this has taken only a day or so to come out.

It’s still all about advertising revenue and John Gibson is still a tool.
