She sounds like she’s kidding but she claims she’s not. 

When they put the phrase “tone deaf” in future editions of Webster’s Dictionary, there will be a Bitly link to this post next to the phrase, in place of a definition.

The opening salvo in the U.S.’ diplomatic attack on Russia over Edward Snowden comes from the band that once release a song that once tried to slip a profanity on the radio by using NATO phonetic spelling. That’s the best we’ve got, CIA?!?
Fake edit: Seriously, though, this was a terrible idea, terrible band we’re shocked is still together.

What once seemed like an isolated green-paint incident is now officially a wave. Fortunately, they caught the lady who had allegedly been splattering paint on the Lincoln Memorial, the National Cathedral and a Smithsonian statue. (Washington National Cathedral photo)

"I was only going to fire a couple of shots," says man with ammo near White House

  • ≈200 the number of rounds of ammunition a Texas man was carrying when he was arrested near the White House Tuesday afternoon. San Antonio man Christopher Wade Briggs had a pistol and knife on him when he was arrested. And yes, he actually said that quote featured in the headline, according to documents acquired by The Washington Post. source

Earlier today, in response to an inquiry from a media outlet, a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft. The NTSB does not release or confirm the names of crewmembers or people involved in transportation accidents to the media. We work hard to ensure that only appropriate factual information regarding an investigation is released and deeply regret today’s incident.
The NTSB, in a press release revealing that an intern released falsely confirmed the obviously-fake Asiana Airlines pilot names to KTVU earlier today. By the way, KTVU is far from the only San Francisco-area station that’s had blunders or embarrassing moments on air, but in most of those cases, there wasn’t obvious racism playing a factor. (Edit to clarify.)

I imagine, as this panel discussion takes place, Jeff Zucker is in his lair at the CNN studios in Atlanta, rigidly stroking a Chihuahua, wondering how his plan to ruin cable news is going.
