This goes to show you the intelligence of your average TV Newscaster.

It's ridiculous, hilarious and sad all at the same time.

They are so "quick on the trigger" to get a story out first they don't even check out facts.

If they would have read those names out loud, it would have been quite obvious. Instead, they "got the scoop" which turned out to be a big pile of bullshit.

I'm surprised there is a video of this, the TV station was going bonkers claiming "copyright infringement" ( unauthorized use? ) to get videos taken down.

Through the "Get it on air first" Reporters/Editors, the low IQ news reader, and the leftist agenda of the MSM, the general public would do well to just turn that shit off. I watch KTLA and the others occasionally to see live shots. I say live shots because often I'll mute the audio. And then, even the live shots can be skewed to fit an agenda. Remember the flooded area where Anderson Cooper was "Live"? Yea, it was staged. How about the protest CNN was covering? Go in tight to the few folks and make it appear there's many. Or good ole slimy Hildabeast. A big crowd in an auditorium where the people were all in one small area.
