Jeff Greenfield discusses death of bin Laden on Imus

Jeff Greenfield, CBS News just issued an unneccessary insult, saying he hopes “whack job birthers” don’t — I don’t know what he’s talking about really — make something from the death of Osama bin Laden.

What does the killing of bin Laden have to do with whack job birthers?  I’m not making the connection.

I am tired of the insults thrown around by Jeff Greenfield or others in the media.  It’s beginning to make me mad.  It is unbelieveably unprofessional for a serious news person to use a term like whack job, even though it was in a informal setting like Imus in the Morning.  I don’t even use it to describe people like Mr. Greenfield, (an obvious whack job 😉 ) not often anyway, and I am not a serious anything.

He said he does not work for CBS News any more by mutual agreement.  “They said don’t work for CBS any more and I said okay.”  Good line.  So I guess he’s an ex-CBS employee.

Just learned that they broke into The Apprentice last night to announce the death of bin Laden.  That could not have been a coincidence.  No way.

Osama bin Laden buried at sea – huh?

I hope they got some DNA or something to prove it was him.  If not, there will be conspiracy theories forevermore.

A U.S. official says Osama bin Laden has been buried at sea.

After bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition. That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said. Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world’s most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, the official said. So the U.S. decided to bury him at sea.

Norah O’Donnell really messed up, tweeted Obama killed

Whoa.  Serious mistake by Norah.

In an attempt to release the news of Osama bin Laden’s death quickly late Sunday night, MSNBC correspondent Norah O’Donnell accidentally reported on Twitter that “Obama” had been “killed” instead.

“Obama shot and killed,” Norah O’Donnell posted on Twitter, citing NBC Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski as her source.
