The Drudge Report's Headline About the Dallas Shooting Is Even Grosser Than You'd Expect

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Chemisse (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

By Jordan Weissmann



There are still many questions about Thursday night's horrendous shooting of Dallas police officers at a Black Lives Matter protest. As I'm writing this post, we know little to nothing about the shooters, or their motives. Nonetheless, Matt Drudge has seen it fit to dispense with his typical racial dog whistles, and instead run this fog horn of a headline.
drudge

What a cretinous human being.

Short piece: nothing more at link. And I can think of WAY more appropriate words for this boil on the ass of our species than "cretinous."

1. Matt Drudge - racist ignoramus

It's really sad how Drudge & people like him are willing to make money exploiting ignorant hate-filled people's prejudices.

As an antidote, the ABC local Dallas news channel seems to be covering it pretty well. It's covering the tragic shootings, the peaceful protest, and the recent police shootings of unarmed black people in Minnesota and Louisiana that were the basis for that worthwhile protest.

4. I understand that; my point is that a story about an ugly action by Drudge doesn't rise to LBN
