Mad_Radhu: Rapmaster2000: Wolf Blitzer was only "cool" when he was one of the lead characters in Gulf War:  The Movie, starring Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf, George H.W. Bush, and Colin Powell as The Black Guy That Speaks So Well.

That movie was pretty good. I just didn't care for the pointless, overlong sequel that replaced Bush with his goofy son and ruined Powell's character.


My favorite part was where the Iraqis took babies out of incubators and stacked them in the hall like cordwood.  It was so over-the-top evil.

CNN is an embarrasment and Wolf Blitzer has a stupid name.

Plant Rights Activist: Patrick said his first reaction was to get to the scene, but State Police denied his request

dude, you're the governor.  You're their boss.  Why are they telling you what you can do?


I believe the conversation went:
"Sorry, but we're not going to risk your life and complicate matters with your security detail until we know there are no other bombs."

If CNN had sources they felt were legitimate and made an editorial error to run with them, that's a bad, bad mistake for a journalism brand to make.

But why is no one jumping all over the other media outlets that clearly reported CNN's bad info as fact. A few were at least honest enough to say 'CNN is reporting...' but many just ran with CNN's report as fact and a few even seemed to suggest they had their own sources corroborating the information.

They also insinuated that 'right wing extremists' were responsible, based on the the explosivce devices.  Of course is just wishful thinking by CNN, and was not factually based, but it furthers their false narrative, so hey... run with it.

Nothing was worse than the media ghouls begging the doctor to describe the amputations, all the while the doctor stuck to professional medical terms such as subcutaneous injuries and refused to go into the graphic details these vermin were so craving.

I look forward to seeing this replayed with 20/20 hindsight on a future episode of The Newsroom.

I hope something changes here but I doubt it will, the cycle seems to repeat itself every time.

- Events happens
- The media trips over themselves trying to "scoop" one another with new information.  Most of this is proven false and then blamed on "fog of war"
- 24-48 hours passes and some influential, but fringe, players in the media begin navel gazing about how the media got it wrong and how they should do better
- They never do
