Last evening on "The Situation Room," CNN's Wolf Blitzer apologized for CNN's use of the text "DEPT. OF JIHAD?" used to tease a story about a video produced by the group "Keep America Safe" on Thursday's program:
We had a graphic on the screen that said "department of jihad" followed by a question mark and many of you tweeted me that you found that graphic to be offensive. I agree, it was. The graphic referenced a video produced by Liz Cheney's organization "Keep America Safe." Their video features those words on screen questioning the loyalty of justice department attorneys who had previously worked on behalf of Guantanamo detainees. CNN had no intention of suggesting that the Justice Department supports terrorism. Lawyers at the Justice Department are patriotic Americans and we certainly regret any confusion that may have been caused by our graphic.
chyron? WTF is that?
The blurb at the bottom of the screen
Perhaps they meant to imply that K.A.S. was a Dept. of Jihad.
The commie libs were just expressing the way they feel about the Americans who built this country and make it work. They see us as their enemy. Especially the commie libs at CNN. To them, Americans are the real terrorists in the world. Everyone else is the “good guys”. Stuff it Wolf.
Chyron is the brother of Tanyashika and Vonetta who work at Jesse Jackson’s Operation Push headquaters.
Well, the WH and Congress are on a jihad to destroy America. Truth is stranger than fiction.
This is a hatchet job, as usual.
The Holder DOJ IS the Department of Jihad alright. They have to the tune of at least 9 Al Quaeda lawyers in there. It’s no surprise they keep reading Miranda rights to terrorist vermin.
The Chyron (ky-ron) is a character generator that is used to superimpose text/fonts/graphics on the lower-third of the screen. We always called them “supers” and the Chyron operator “did the fonts”, but I suppose the words themselves are called Chyrons by some news organizations.
Lawyers at the Justice Department are patriotic Americans
Says who, better to watch their actions not what they say; and just because the political class says it, does not make it true.
The agnathous Blitzer is still mad at the world because he has been shorted so much in the testosterone department that he can’t grow a real beard.
As a former liberal/Leftist let me assure that liberals NEVER mean an apology as being sincere. Never. What they’re attempting to do is change your mind. And attempting to make it appear as what ever transpired was really YOUR fault.
CNN should just shut down rather than embarrassing themselves any further.
TRANSLATION: CNN accidentally reported the truth. It usually takes great pains to make certain that sort of thing never happens!
If that doesn't make you spit nails, I don't know what will.
Department of Jihad is what Holder’s Injustice Department has become: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2458670/posts
Hey, what’s with all the big words around here?!
Mere child’s play for a pointy head that is sharp....
