It's weird. I have some vague recollection that John Gibson was a local newscaster in LA when I was growing up. And that he was basically sane. What happened to him

commisserates with me about Gibson's bizarro fall ....
I have often wondered the same thing. I remember Gibson during the 1990s, anchoring much of the OJ Simpson coverage, or appearing on Geraldo Riveraâs various shows. Gibson at tat time seemed entirely reasonable, soft-spoken, calm â even-handed in analysis.
I have been wondering for a very long time â during his rants about âThe War Against Christmas,â his chilling comments about the need for âminority religionsâ in America to basically watch their step, his numerous OâReilly & Savage-like rantings, whether this is indeed what he thinks about things, or whether it is an act to âget on the right sideâ (no pun intended) of his Fox audience.
Keith Oberman of MSNBC often talks about his âsadnessâ regarding Gibson (who he says was an ex-colleague of his) and his transformation now into someone who Oberman has often picked as his nightly âWorst Person in The Worldâ on his MSBC show.
