“In this age of instant reporting, and Tweets, and blogs, there’s a temptation to latch on to any bit of information — sometimes, to jump to conclusions. But when a tragedy like this happens, with public safety at risk and the stakes so high, it’s important to do this right. That’s why we have investigations. That’s why we relentlessly gather the facts. That’s why we have courts. That’s why we take care not to rush to judgment — not about the motivations of these individuals, and certainly not about entire groups of people.”
PRESIDENT OBAMA, at the White House.
Hey, wanna guess which CNN reporter was sitting in the front row in the press room when the President said this?
Yep: John fucking King.
