Slow News Day At CNN, Inaccuracies Pointed Out By Social Media-Verse

CNN’s “Political Ticker” team were clearly stuck for a story yesterday, and the best they could manage was a regurgitated AP piece about Joe Biden, who was apparently “booed” at an Eagles v Giants game: “As Eagles fans watched their team lose to the New York Giants Sunday night” opined CNN “a shot of Biden on the big screen elicited boos from the notoriously tough home crowd”

I scrolled down to peruse the comments and found something from “Rad Phil” that gave the true story (corroborated by numerous other comments).

“My god……You got to love the anominity of the internet, because these people come out in droves and say some stupid crap that they can only get away with without seeing their faces.

To clarify:

They booed the non-call on intentional grounding by Eli.

I will repeat (and for those that don’t seem to get this afterwards)

THEY BOOED THE INTENTIONAL GROUNDING BY ELI.”

Ho hum. Social Media 1 : Traditional Media : 0
