in today’s Bad Policy News …
Yahoo News fired their Washington bureau chief, David Chalian, for pointing out the absolute and irrefutable truth.
During a yahoo/ABC webcast, the chief’s conversation was picked up on a “hot mic”, he of course was unaware that his comments were being broadcast to a worldwide audience – and he did the unthinkable.
He made private business public .. and was swiftly “dealt with”.
His exact quote?
“They’re not concerned at all. They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning,” making reference to the hurricane that is threatening to shut down the RNC’s convention in Tampa.
This afternoon, Yahoo released this statement ”
“David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.”
Word? That’s how it’s going down Yahoo? but you know what? we understand. you can’t have your people going around telling the truth about what’s going on…that would destroy everything you have been working so hard for, wouldn’t it?
Peep the comment below..and applaud him for telling the damn truth!
