US Media Blames Muslims For DC Shooting - Americas - News -

"We are only a few days past the 9/11 attacks here in Washington D.C.,” CNN reporter Barbara Starr said in a report on Monday, September 16, linking the attacks to Muslims.

“If there are two shooters, Wolf, if that problems to be correct, it is going to be the most significant fact,” Starr reported.

“It is going to mean that two people conspired to carry out this attack, that they talked about it ahead of time, that they planned it ahead of time. Even if it was just a short period ahead of time, that they had a plan to do this,” she added.

I dog Jeff Zucker for many things. This sloppy content that was broadcasted, which any news geek would think that Starr and Blitzer would have enough sense not to indulge and wait to verify or disprove, is yet another example that Zucker doesn’t manage his talent closely enough. I’d love to see a scholarly review of Zucker’s work by journalism instructors - it would be interesting to see if he’d be skewered as badly as I assume he would be.

You did a helluva job, Wolfie

Wolf Blitzer Chastises Tammy Duckworth for her treatment of Joe Walsh

BLITZER: I agree that the differences on substantive policy issues are what the two of you should be debating about. He’s used some nasty words. But you’ve also suggested among other things that Walsh is an extremist loud mouth for the Tea Party.

Back in April, you said there’s not a crack pot Tea Party idea that he hasn’t embraced. Is that appropriate to use that kind of language against the sitting United States congressman?

What does the fact the he’s a “sitting congressmen” have to do with what he said? Or that Joe Walsh is a first-rate jackass?

DUCKWORTH: I think it’s appropriate against a gentleman who says that he wants to be the poster child for the Tea Party. He actually gave that quote to “Time” magazine.

He’s told the people in the district you’re not going to get squat from me, his words. And that he is going to Washington to shout from the mountain tops and he’s not going to compromise.

He’s not going to work with anyone. He is there it to be a poster child for the Tea Party. Well, if he’s proud of that, then he needs to embrace that because the people in the district are sick and tired of what’s going on in Washington.

What? Do you have any more false equivocation, Mr. Blitzer? Have you forgotten this turning point in American Politics?
