A new video has been released which shows the initial encounter:
NewsBusters has audio of a caller asking CNN why this story is not being covered:
A man called in to CNN’s Helpline on Tuesday wondering why the network hasn’t reported the Black Panthers who were seen standing in front of a Philadelphia polling station this morning, one of them carrying a billy club.
According to the caller (audio available here), he was going to vote for Obama until a friend told him about this incident. The caller said, “Now Fox has broadcast this, and I want to know why CNN has not broadcast this yet.”
Police arrive on the scene:
This is wrong on many levels but it’s also the first time I’ve laughed in a couple of days.
Power is flickering now. I doubt we will have it much longer. We have car batteries with power inverters for electronics and a generator for larger items. If Internet access is possible I will continue to update.
The compassionate one shows his true colors:
Sometime you really have wonder at what cost some are willing to see their political ideology advanced.
To liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, the bounds are seemingly endless. Moore has made a recent career out of attacking President George W. Bush, bashing conservatives and criticizing business. His latest outrage occurred on MSNBC’s August 29 “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and when he commented about the coincidental timing of an unfortunate disaster – the potential for Hurricane Gustav to make landfall at the beginning of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn.
“I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said, laughing. “To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”
Again, the language isn’t really safe for work and the ideas expressed, if they can be called ideas, might induce headaches and nausea.
