E.D. "Terrorist Fist Bump" Hill is the new CNN weekend morning host...

On the June 6, 2008, episode of America's Pulse, Hill asked whether a fist bump between then-presidential candidate Barack Obama, and his wife Michelle, after the final 2008 Presidential Democratic primaries was a "terrorist fist jab". Hill, introducing an upcoming discussion before a commercial break, posited that the gesture was either "A fist bump? A pound? [or] A terrorist fist jab?," but never explained the term when the segment continued after the break.[2] The incident set off a controversy among bloggers and television commentators.[3][4][5][6] Hill apologized for her comments the next day.[7] The next week, the Fox News Channel announced that Hill's show America's Pulse had been canceled. Martha McCallum's show The Live Desk would become two hours (13 p.m.), and Trace Gallagher would become a co-host with McCallum.[8]

1. she's been with CNN for a while

 

What's up with Time-Warner? I thought they were supposed to be a "liberal" corporation? I guess there's really no such beast.

2. Idiotic statement of someone WAY out of touch of popular culture.

 

Still somewhat perplexed at people not familiar with the fist bump.

Ms Hill, I know you probably live in a gated community. But don't they at least beam cable TV and the internet into those walled off enclaves?
