Fox News Headquarters Fire Cheered at USA Today Blog
So, did you hear about that chemical explosion at Fox News Channel's headquarters in Manhattan yesterday?
Fortunately, there were no fatalities.
However, judging by some of the comments at USA Today's On Deadline blog, not everyone was pleased by the lack of injuries.
In fact, some were wishing ill for Fox employees and management (reader is advised to proceed with caution, as the following is a tad offensive):

Couldn't have happened to nicer faux news corporation. Next time they should take aim at Rupert Murdoch's yacht.

They are investigating the lack of fair and balanced objectivity that is presumed missing and most likely dead at this point.

According to CNN!!!! CNN scoops FOX News on an explosion in the FOX building. LOL. Fox was probably too busy propping up Bushie to notice a news story.

That's why you make meth at home and not at work.

Bill O'Reilly will again ignore the facts and blame the explosion on terrorists.

I sure hope Bill O'Reilly was in some way personally inconvenienced.
Interesting that there weren't any reports for abuse, wouldn't you agree?
Moving forward, it certainly would be no great surprise to see this kind of behavior at Netroots blogs such as Daily Kos.
However, what does it say about the state of media and our country that this occurred at the website of one of America's leading national newspapers?
