CNN anchor's departure to Fox causes border war!

The carnage can be found at deadline.com, where news of John Roberts' departure had Republicans celebrating at the big "get." Our ordinarily sedate neighbors to the north, however, were horrified that one of their own could work for an uncivilized corporate propaganda machine. Then the insults started flying:

Canadian 1:
Sad to see a fellow Canadian, ex- MuchMusic VJ go from a liberal station to a propaganda conservative network. He’s making Canadians look bad. Shame.
Canadian 2:
Why would Mr. John Roberts (aka JD Roberts, for those Canadians) make Canadians look bad? He chose to become an American Citizen, marry an American, he lives and works, almost more than half his life,in the USA. He may have been born in Canada, but chose not to stay. Life is made up of the choices we make, and his choices make him American not Canadian. So how did Mr. John Roberts become a Canadian representative? He doesn’t represent me, for I am Canadian. Good luck JD! We Canadians wish you all the best! Thank you.

Republican 1:
That’s funny! Canadians can’t even work up the stones to defend themselves at home and almost sunk the used eBay submarine you bought while trying to tow it home.

You’re damn lucky you have strong people down here willing to defend you as well as themselves.

And Fox probably had to hire some dumb liberal from CNN to fill a quote-hire position. Sort of like how Odumbass got to be president.
Canadian 3:
The problem with the USA is how stupidly Christian you are – you guys live in fear and turn to religion for answers and guidance. What do you have against gay marriage? Marijuana? Healthcare for all? Affordable education? Yeah, exactly. You’re a country of haters. Sooooo glad I live in Canada especially since the US is no longer an economic power and it’s headed downhill FAST. Good riddance John Roberts, we don’t need you on our side. Fox can have you.

Wow! I had no idea he's a former VJ. He was considered next in line to replace Dan Rather on "CBS Evening News" for a long time. In an alternate universe, Mark Goodman hosts "The Today Show."
