She`s right...it`s exactly like a bomb had dropped because it had. It`s like going to a funeral and remarking, "Everyone is acting like someone died."

This is what happens with 24-hour coverage. You have to fill the air with something, even if it`s just an empty street.

They tried the same `electric atmosphere` poo with the London riots, the streets were just empty, the riot was over,the rest was bullpoo!

Actually, that was a local Fox broadcast network affiliate (not the same as the Fox News Channel). Also, it wasn`t their news department; it was the closed captioning guy, which meant it was probably at least partially due to auto-complete or voice recognition software.

CNN, you ARE the biggest loser. I saw some interviews that Wolf Blitzer did earlier. What an idiot.

It`s as if police and FBI told all residents to stay indoors.

That`s what I like in my professional wordsmiths...alliteration. Well, you can`t say her description wasn`t accurate. It really was as though a bomb had gone off. That`s accuracy in reporting right there.

Even when a liberal makes a fool of herself, you have to try to distract everyone and make it about someone else.

Can you even imagine the hate and venom if a Fox News reporter had said something this breathtakingly stupid?

Okey dokey, abstract thought and eloquent speech; not her strong point.

In a job where 80% of what you say is made up BS, sometimes it accidentally ends up sounding like the truth.
