to John King of CNN, one of his sources told him that a "dark skinned male" has been identified as a suspect and arrested for his role in the Boston Marathon massacre. Of course we know now that Mr. King, like the clowns at FOX, were wrong.
My warning is for dark skinned males only, so you Negroes can relax. If it was one of you he would have said that a "black male" has been arrested or identified as a suspect. You white guys with a tan can chill as well, I don't think that he meant you, either.
“I was told they have a breakthrough in the identification of the suspect, and I’m told — and I want to be very careful about this because people get very sensitive when you say these things — I was told by one of these sources who’s a law enforcement official that this was a dark-skinned male,” King reported. “The official used some other words, I’m going to repeat them until we get more information because of the sensitivities. There are some people who will take offense even in saying that.”
Count me in John. I think you are a moron.You make it easier for people like this to thrive. But, sadly, you were not alone:
"CNN’s Fran Townsend — who was a former Homeland Security Advisor to President George W. Bush — backed up King’s report with her own sources.
“What was perfectly clear to me, according to this official, an arrest has been made,” Townsend said.
But within 45 minutes, Townsend was back on the air, explaining that there had been a “misunderstanding.”
“There’s not somebody in custody or arrested,” she stuttered. “The situation is very fluid… There was a misunderstanding. That was said to me, not so much that we had misunderstood, but that there has been a misunderstanding and lots of cross communication.”
So this is what we call being an irresponsible journalist these days: Having a "misunderstanding" and getting caught up in"cross communications".
Poor Richard Jewell just turned in his grave.
They are the best politricksters that NRA money can buy, and they have once again done their master's bidding by voting against extended background checks for gun shows and online purchases.
The irony is that this amendment was being sponsored by a conservative Democrat and an even more conservative republican. This did not matter to the whores who wear wingtip shoes and dark suits, their pimps told them to vote no and that's exactly what they did.
