A GOOD FIVE hours before media reported the names of one of the suspects in the San Bernardino shootings, Michael Savage--on his syndicated radio show (broadcast here on KSFO) named Sayed Farook as one of the shooters.
Savage got a tip from a law-enforcement figure monitoring police scanner audio.
Apparently, several media outlets--here and beyond had the name(s)--but instead acted like pussies and took the safe route. In other words: CYA. Pussies.
*CBS Radio sent a reporter to San Bernardino and got full reports on the day's shooting rampage. For some reason, KCBS wanted to send their own reporter down to the Southland. I have no idea why since the reporter added ZERO to the day's information guide.
*Like many of you I watched cable news non-stop on Wednesday and saw more "We continue 'Breaking News' coverage"--continue "BREAKING NEWS COVERAGE ?" Someone explain that shit to me, talk about uber-oxymoron.
*Leave it to the local TV News station (two of them) to sniff the inevitable "local angle" and send a pair of schmucks to the local Regional Centers --one in SF, to ask the obligatory stupid question--"Are you shaken up?" --"No, we're ready to party!" --MORONS!
