Dave Briggs: You’re Not Worthy?

“Folks, don’t have a Super Bowl party if you don’t have a great TV! That’s my public service announcement.” This morning Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Dave Briggs laughingly made this off-the-cuff jest during a Super Bowl tech segment after co-host Clayton Morris had showed him a 42″ high-def flat screen television. Even though Clayton smiled, those F&FW viewers among the 14.5 million unemployed Americans who are not as fortunate as one of their favorite co-hosts to have a great job and a good salary may not have appreciated Dave’s humor. Rather, they may been sensitive to any message that they are not worthy in their financial straights to host their family and friends to celebrate this national pastime without a “great tv.”

Doubtlessly, Dave meant no real affront to his poorer F&FW audience members: In fact, if he thought that he had given offense to them, he would probably readily retract his gibe. However, even if he would not, dear reader without the “great tv,” by all means, go ahead and throw that Super Bowl bash. With or without Dave’s permission. Or, mine.
