For second time in three weeks, a CNN reporter says ‘n*gger’ on live TV [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | 4-9-11 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 04/09/2012 12:26:36 PM PDT by bigbob

During Sunday’s broadcast of “CNN Newsroom,” correspondent Susan Candiotti — the reporter covering the recent shootings of five black men in Tulsa, Okla. — used a racial slur on live television.

Candiotti used the “n” word while reading aloud what one of the suspects in the shooting, 19-year-old Jacob England, wrote recently on his Facebook page.

“Now, this, according to relatives, has troubled him ever since and CNN has also discovered what police have,” Candiotti said. “There was a Facebook posting made just the other day, written by the suspect in this case, that police are examining.”

LANGUAGE WARNING. Yes, this is CNN on the air!

One has to wonder, what was Ms. Candiotti thinking?

Yes, she said the “N” word. Nevermind that she also dropped an F-Bomb.

The libs are coming out in droves defending her as a voice of reason, helping the poor black community.

Let's use logic which liberals don't believe in.

This isn't Bill Maher, Chris Rock, or a Rated R Film.

This is a mainstream cable news outlet being broadcast during the day. Imagine that some 1st grader heard this and repeated this at school. The kid would be expelled at DCFS would be crawling down the parent's chimney to snatch the child and arrest the parents as racists!!!

Don't believe this can happen? Just watch it will...

Hey, he has an excuse. Past injustices like slavery excuse racial anger and affirmative action, right? What happened to his dad should count.

:p

The rules don’t apply to liberals, and they KNOW it. This explains their confidence.

Secondly, the nature of media is changing —there are more and more and more sources of news. The LegacyMedia feels a need to compete with the net.

They probably did this KNOWING we’d pass around a link.

They think this will help their ratings.

“Blacks call each other that name all of the time.”

Self loathing epithets like this demonstrate that racism’s backyard is headquartered in the black community.

So, let me see if I follow you.

If a WHITE person reads a FaceBook posting, written by a Black person “exactly as written” - and says the word “Nigger” - that is wrong, racist and hurtful.

But if a BLACK person shots a call-out to all of his “Niggers”, or “Niggas” - that is ok, fine and nothing is wrong.

If a BLACK recording “artist” uses his excessive (some say “genius”) talents and sports a “Rap” filled with the word “Nigger”, “Niggas”, “Hos”, “Whitey”, “Cracker” and other such “street” talk, why he is simply “keeping it real”.

I despise double-standards. It’s either wrong for everyone, or it’s wrong for no one.

She was (on orders) deliberately putting the N word out in the MSM spoken by non blacks for the purpose of offending blacks and having them perceive that this is the normal American society that speaks this way.

Blacks (and guilty whites) offended in this manner will likely be motivated to vote for Obama in November much more than they are now, despite his disastrous policies.

You will see the white liberal MSM talking heads bouncing the N word regularly under cover of a quote, without consequence, until election day.

This is leftist agitation, if any non leftist white does this it will be WWIII.

Certainly won't go away as long as blacks use it to describe themselves (e.g. No_Limit_Ni**a).

CNN is now brazenly violating the Black Cultural Copyright on the N-word.

The Democrats didn’t really go Anti-Black until after the Civil war,didn’t start planning on curbing their population till after segregation ended.

And they apparently didn’t start planning on instigating a race war,till after they elected a Black President.

What a bunch of retards.

We all are adults and know that the real word is ‘nigger’. It is almost always a horrible racial slur and I refuse to use the word in reference to anyone. However, it is just silly to go around saying “the N word”. Who are we fooling? It seems to be The Word That Nobody Can Utter, even more so than when some people will write G-d instead of God. Again, we are being so polite we look like children.

That’s an interesting theory. Since she did it intentionally it was either a screw-up (think it wasn’t going out live) or to make a point, as any rational person with a mic in their hand wouldn’t do this otherwise.

Pouring gasoline on a racial fire is one explanation.

Just curious, does anyone know when the “n-word” went from being merely an offensive word, that no decent person would refer to another person as, to an actual curse word that can’t be used on TV or in print, even when quoting another person.

Not too long ago, it was common to quote others as saying it, or use the word while debating whether books containing it should be allowed in schools.

As recently as the O.J. Simpson trial, the full word was used both in court and by the media when discussing Mark Fuhrman’s testimony, so it had to be some time after that.

Can anyone tell me the difference between between saying "the N word" and actually saying the word? Everyone knows what the N word is.

I really don't understand.

Lenin coined the term "useful idiots" to describe his base, because it was concise and accurate.

That base has not gone away, it just moved to America.

I can say the word nigger all I want. Freedom of speech still exists. And if someone gets violent because I said the word nigger then they should be charged with the crime of assault. Saying nigger doesn’t give anyone the right to resort to violence. And if someone says the word nigger is “fighting words” then I submit that so are “honkey” and “cracker” and should be treated as such. As for racists dumbasses, let them speak. I want to hear what the loonies are saying.

Words are words. What ever happened to “stick and stones” huh?

I’m offended that they apologized for it. She didn’t choose those words she was reading a Facebook posting of someone they were doing a report on. That is actually how news should be reported without politically correct censoring.

They call each other Motherf*ckers too. Sometimes they use both terms in sequence. You have to wonder if those two words comprise the bulk of their vocabulary, especially Black “commedians.”
