Media Moron: Carol Costello

Taking MSM Media Moronics to a new low:

CNN: "I've never heard of such a thing happening" cnn anchor blanks on Ft. Hood shooting

Anchoring the coverage of an ongoing mass shooting at the Washington Naval Yard, CNN anchor Carol Costello quizzed a producer on the scene about whether a military base like this has ever come under attack by a gunman before. Some have speculated that she was referring specifically to bases in the Washington D.C. area, but it was unclear why Costello did not reference the 2009 attack on Fort Hood by Maj. Nidal Hasan    (NB: which by the way the MSM refuses to term 'domestic terrorism, despite the murderer standing on a table shouting 'Allahu Akbar').
 
“I used to work in Washington, live in Washington. This seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military facility,” Costello asked her producer, Brian Todd. “Have you ever heard of this happening before, Brian?”


“I was just saying that this is so unusual, because this is such a heavily-secured military facility. I’ve worked in Washington for many years, I’ve never heard of such a thing happening,” she asked.

“Well, we haven’t either in this area, Carol,” Todd replied. “This is the first time we’ve seen something like this, at least in many, many years. Now you remember the Fort Hood shooting in 2009, where that was a member of the service who was convicted eventually of doing that shooting.”

In 2009, Hasan murdered 13 and wounded 30 others in a mass shooting at the Fort Hood military base.
Watch the clip.

At least Brian Todd had a clue.

Barky Obummer, Poser

President-Elect Barky Obummer visited Marines at Kaneohoe Bay during his Hawaiian vacation. He spent about an hour at the dining hall, shaking hands and posing for pictures. 

Sunlen Miller reports:

"As Obama entered the room, it was absent of the regular fanfare of cheering and clapping. The diners were polite, staying seated at their respective tables and waited for the president-elect to come to them to stand up."H/T: Gateway Pundit

It would have been nice if Barky could have found another hour to visit Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu. Tripler is the largest military hospital in the Asian and Pacific Rim region.


Hawaii Five-Oops ?

The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific , located in Punchbowl Crater just north of Honolulu, is the final resting place of over 30,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, Korea, and Vietnam.



And it is the site of an unforgivable show of disrespect to not only every veteran interred there, especially the ones whose graves were trod all over, but also to the 23 veterans who survived the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor who were special guests that day.
