Fox News on Female Suicide Bombers

Oh, Fox News! Making a DHS Report a Real Stomach-Turner?

Right. In some places it's still a little before breakfast, and well, Fox News just made sure I don't want any. A recent Department of Homeland Security report aiming to educate about the recent spate of female suicide bombers included this:

"Female suicide bombers may carry explosives devices in a backpack, briefcase, or purse, or hidden in an article of clothing . . . They have also carried explosives in prosthetic devices that mimic the look of a pregnant woman."

And now for the picture.

Did Fox News trip over the line and sensationalize this story? They were, technically, reporting the news . . . Am I just being too sensitive?

"Looks like a lot of people here are drinking the FoxNews kool-aid..." -- Looks like someone else is using the brilliant debate strategy of assuming everyone else who has an opposite opinion of her is somehow part of a cult.

I don't have time to write much because I'm in the middle of filling out a DHS complaint about the pregnant woman down the hall... I don't get what's wrong with this either. I mean, I hate fox news as much as the next liberal (actually, I hate all TV news. I'm all about NPR!), but I don't see how this is upsetting.

fox doesn't deserve a bad rap for this.

I dont know. I'd be more annoyed that people would find something on Fox News disturbing, considering the source. We learned about fake preg. female bombers almost 8 years ago now in one of my terrorism classes in college. I guess what I'm trying to get at is that I dont find anything sensational about that news story at all. It just seems factual?

I hear you tiabia. I guess in retrospect it wasn't the photo as much as the bright red headline with the weird semi-pun that caught my eye. Nonetheless, the whole package shocked me, so yes--points to Fox for getting my attention!

Lol piper!

Because Fox News is the #1 news channel. And liberals can't stand that. :)

Citizen...sensationalism is the name of the media game!!! Everything has taken this "News of the World" if that was two separate bellies with a gelatinous face...I might have actually been interested in something FoxNews had to say!!!

foxie, I agree. Why is it that there are always people whining about Fox News? Pathetic!
foxie foxie 9 years
Wow... sometimes I'm worried about my fellow women. The key factor to this story is that Fox News is behind it. THAT is what is outraging you all, not the picture of some fake belly. This is such a non-issue, I am really dismayed that you guys are actually whining and moaning about it.

I have no problem with it, its not stomach turning. besides this is america right? where movies depicting the disembowlment of women and men make millions.

What the heck is the big deal? I am actually sort of interested in how it looks. And oh please raciccarone, CNN does the same thing. When Anna Nicole died that is all they showed. Both channels have their pros- and Cons. Neither is innocent and both spew propaganda.

It looks like a Barbie doll I had when I was little that had a swing stomach with a little baby inside. It was a disturbing toy.
