    I guess even the left has a point that's too far.

    Yahoo

    "During live coverage of the Republican National Convention here in Tampa, Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian provided the perfect example of the pervasive anti-Republican bias Mitt Romney faces in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

    In video broadcast Monday night by ABC and Yahoo over the Internet, Chalian can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac.

    “They aren’t concerned at all,” the person says on tape. “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.”

    That line elicits laughter from several employees listening in on the joke.

    I'm not sure what is more entertaining. Proof of general media bias, or the fact a reporter didnt realize there was an open mike around.

    What a fat, bloated, race-bating pig.

    Glad they did the right thing and fired his racist ass.

    And we all know there are plenty of other lefty pukes who agree with him and would also laugh along.

    The slime in the Dimocrat party is but one reason they're gonna get their asses kicked again in just a few short weeks.

    “David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.”

    They haven't reached out to me.

    Anyone else?

    Lying motherfuckers.

    We all know how the firing conversation went. "Yeah Yeah it was funny and we all laughed, and yes we agree with ya, but you got caught so we have to fire you."

    It wasnt the statement that got him fired, it was that he got caught.

    So Davey Boy SAT AT THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION and said “They aren’t concerned at all,” and “They are happy to have a party when black people drown.”........If you're so concerned, LEAVE THE CONVENTION YOU ARE SITTING AT AND GO HELP. Idiot.

    Probably.

    And you probably say things every day that would get you fired if the wrong person heard them.

    Yahoo is already a sinking ship, and this sort of thing doesn't help.
