Two RNC Attendees Threw Nuts At A Black CNN Employee And Said, 'This Is How We Feed Animals'
Aug. 29, 2012, 9:32 AM
Two spectators at the Republican National Convention were kicked out Tuesday after allegedly throwing nuts at a black CNN employee and saying, "This is how we feed animals," according to a CNN report this morning.
CNN did not have any further official comment beyond its short report. The convention released this statement this morning:
Two attendees tonight exhibited deplorable behavior. Their conduct was inexcusable and unacceptable. This kind of behavior will not be tolerated."
The story was first extensively reported by Talking Points Memo. And TPM editor Josh Marshall notes that CNN didn't report on it until almost 8 a.m. this morning:
Theres a normal and correct tendency for a news outfit not to want to make itself into the story. But this goes way beyond that and puts CNN in an exquisitely awkward position. CNN has been bending over backwards of late trying to position itself as the last holy beacon of objectivity and fairness in cable news, as Fox and MSNBC play to more clearly partisan audiences. Meanwhile, theyre under almost constant assault from conservatives for alleged (and basically mythical) liberal bias.

I call BS. This never happened.
Sounds like a set-up to me...
This is a joke, right?
That’s what happens when you Send Joe Biden anywhere without supervision.
First thing that came to my mind!
to me, too.
And being called an ‘animal’ could NEVER be because they are members of the Commie News Network?
in a tweet @evalongoria This is shocking and horrible. http://say.ly/kcE441P
She is speaking at the DNC next week.
This sounds as fishy as a Sunday morning on Bourbon Street................
CNN's 24 viewers have a combined IQ a couple points less than a dog biscuit.
It has?? Seriously? since When? They are not called the "Clinton News Network" for nothing
$10 says this is phony.
They should screen out the Occuturds and ACORNtrash.
just of late.
Before lately, they admit to being biased.
Sounds like a person has been added, at first it was just one person throwing peanuts. Tomorrow we’ll have the whole state of AL in on it. Agree that’s the creeps were probably either Dem plants, or Paul-tards.
