Greta Van Susteren to Fox Colleague: Your Tweets Are in ‘Very Bad Taste’

As news continued to unfold this afternoon on the downed Malaysia Airlines jet, Greta Van Susteren told one of her colleagues to temper his tweeting.

Todd Starnes, who’s a New York-based Fox News radio host, tweeted out:

Greta took exception to Starnes’ timing, posting his tweets–and her thoughts–on GretaWire.

I don’t know Todd Starnes (he works in NYC), but I do know he works at Fox News Channel and so do I. I don’t like his tweets. They are very bad taste. This is not the time to be snarky or have some pathetic attempt at humor. Let me repeat… 295 people died.
