BBC News Presenter Has No Respect

London's burning. Over the past several days, a peaceful demonstration to protest the killing of Mark Duggan (an alleged gang member), turned into downright revolt as protestors started looting businesses and setting them on fire. So, when BBC news presenter (that's what they call news anchors across the pond) Fiona Armstrong went live on the scene in Croydon, England to interview Darcus Howe, a writer and broadcaster, things got weird. Midway through the interview, Fiona attempts to discredit Mr Howe by suggesting he has a history of rioting, too. Obviously offended, he tells her: "Stop accusing me of being a rioter and have some respect for an old West Indian Negro, because you wanted for me to get abusive. You just sound idiotic - have some respect." Bloop-bloop-bloop! That was the end of that interview. Sidebar: The BBC later apologized.

This is just a sampling of the madness happening now in London and outlying areas.
