I am talking about his comments on Fox News…and frankly the employee of Fox News talking to Keith Ablow for allowing it to stand, what’s his name? Doocy? Something like that anyway, isn’t the role of Doocy to challenge things that sound wrong? Or ask for facts to back up statements like that? Other news stations do that…not Doocy on Fox News, apparently he must agree that Keith Ablow has a crystal ball that he can gaze into and determine that Brock is not a good person and it solely because he is an adopted boy who craves power. Really scratching my head on this.
Today Ablow posted a commentary on Fox News site and apparently has chosen to flip-flop and say he does not know why Brock is the way he is. Sorry – far too late to un-ring the bell. And even if he is contrite over what he said a Full Retraction on the same segment of the Fox News TV show is the only way you get credibility from me.
Others have talked about this in a much more concise manner than I can, so go read their thoughts.
Not from the adoption community…
