Skip to comments.Primetime interrupted: Osama bin Laden dead
Posted on 05/01/2011 8:57:46 PM PDT by Nachum
President Obama has endured entertainment industry criticism over the last few years for requesting premium broadcast air time for making speeches. But Sunday nights abrupt and unexpected interruption is unlikely to draw any complaints.
Multiple news organizations are reporting that the White House is set to announce that, at last, Osama bin Laden is dead. ABC, CBS and NBC have cut away from scheduled programming to cover this enormous news.
With all the back and forth between President Obama and Donald Trump in recent weeks, Twitter flared up with amused conspiracy theories when NBC News cut away from Trumps Celebrity Apprentice on the East Coast to carry the announcement.

You can't make this stuff up
I am vaguely ticked because they interrupted CSI Miami, the one program I like on that channel. And haven’t said when they will show the last 15 minutes, when we find out who dunnit.
So was it Star or Hope?
The worst part is they broke away 45 minutes before the actual press conference. It was like an airline delay....
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
This changes noting. You killed a mere mortal not the ideology.
PS Who was fired?
Next, the terrorist in the White House...
BTW, this morning at about 0830 PDT there was posted, "NORTHCOM just upped Force Protection Condition to Bravo" The thread was pulled. Our forces got OBL this morning?
I’m telling my husband that it’s too weird to do this on a Sunday night. I don’t watch much TV, so I didn’t know that Trump’s show was on. Now, it makes all the sense in the world.
I was watching csi also. Have to catch it online. President Bush would have just let the news report it and thanked the Military.
I have a son in Germany and haven’t heard from him. Anyone know if there’s a communications blackout on our bases over seas?
Looks like it was a week ago and DNA was just matched from remains of a bombing by US on his hide.
So far good noooze !!!
Saw Moochelle Obama and Joe Bidens wife singing the praises of our military in a commercial today....strange timing. Zero glorified himself in the speech and noted that we are not at war with Islam but with Al Qaeda...even said the pledge and included “One nation under God” in his wording. He will politicize this to the nth degree.
The news did interupt Trump way early...lol...the last minute when the elimination was being announced and Obama stalled making his grand appearance
“PS Who was fired?”
Osama bin Laden
How did we match the DNA?
Announcement on a Sunday night?
And who’s to say it’s true, baraq’s media?
baraq has never been truthfull with the American people and yet this news is being treated as gospel.
I smell a muslim rat.
I guess we’ll have to find out online how the Apprentice ended. Or watch when they repeat it on CNBC or Bravo channel. Must have been a very nasty boardroom discussion too, with that Nene and Star going at it.
Meanwhile members of the “news” media are just euphoric. I suspect if Bush or McCain were president now this thing would be downplayed and we would be told not to gloat so much.
