    this incorrectly?

     The ticker tape at the gottom of the screen for CNN---and--yes ---I do know how bad CNN is--but the tape said:

    "It is alleged that the 2 men were brothers."

    Now they're not even sure whether or not they were brothers?

    Anybody hear anything about this?

      They should start showing cartoons.  

      No.. no one is doubting that they are brothers.  We know this.  One of them is dead and positively ID'd.  We have their state department records and DOZENS of people that have come forward that knew them, from classmates to relatives to boxing sparring partner.

    •  Breaking news! (5+ / 0-)

      Despite a day long intensive search, CNN can't find their ass with two hands and a flashlight!

      In other breaking news, unbelievably, within the hour, CNN got it wrong!  We have a live copter covering the story.  Here's copter guy in the sky over CNN's giant toxic pile of wrong.

      And onto another breaking news story, CNN has no fucking clue what it's talking about.  Our very own Barbie Kendall is on the scene.  Barbie?

      In more fairness, I actually think they're probably just trying to be careful with their wording. At least in newspaper type journalism, editors can get real pissy about making sure to use "allegedly" type language if it isn't firmly confirmed by a quote from a named public official. Probably overkill here, but to whatever degree any of these people still have an editorial staff, they're probably understaffed and overworked as hell.

      Of course, at this point, I take all of it with a huge grain of salt anyway. They've been wrong much more often than they've been right.
