Chris Myers on Fox Sports Radio is very well-known for his Chris Myers Interviews(CMI), but when he filled in for Dan Patrick on Monday’s Fox Sports Radio Show from 9am-12noon, Meyers got political and he got burned as his comments burned a hole right through the city of New Orleans…..

Here’s how it all went down when Myers said the folks in Nashville/Tennessee handled their disaster with grace, but the citizens of New Orleans were a disgrace when climbed to their rooftops seeking to blame the US Government for their difficulties….

from www.radioinfo.com:

Comments were made on Monday by Fox TV’s Chris Myers on the Dan Patrick Radio Show.

Myers, a former New Orleans resident, was discussing the massive floods in Tennessee and said “When a natural disaster hits, people were not standing on a rooftop trying to blame the government.” New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu demanded an apology from Myers and Fox Sports, and received one. Myers wrote a letter to Landrieu, according to WWL radio, writing, “I would very much like to apologize to you and the people of New Orleans for the inappropriate and insensitive remarks I made this past Monday. Clearly, these remarks demonstrated poor judgment and I sincerely regret making them.” You can listen to Myers’ comments here.
