Refering to the 100 000 people still stuck in New Orleans yesterday: "Those people still there are the unlucky ones, I wouldn't want to be stuck there right now" - FOX News 28/08.



After talking to a FOX News reporter: "If that's what it's like at the edge of the storm, imagine what it's like at the eye of the storm" - Kay Burley 29/09.

"[Mississippi] is known as the hospitality state, we've been so hospitable to people coming here [fleaing places such as New Orleans]" - Channel 12, Jackson & Mobile; Mississippi 29/08.



"Just get in your car and get out of there, even if you have nowhere to go" - FOX News 29/08.



Reporting from the coast in New Orleans several hours before Katrina hit: "There's these crazy people out here surfing. Don't they know there's a hurricane coming? I guess he'll use his surf board as some kind of flotation device" - FOX News 28/08.
