Maybe he was inspired by former Yahoo News Washington bureau chief David Chalian, who declared publicly that the Romneys like to dance on the grace of black people (for which he was promptly fired.).
Peter Hamby's a political reporter too, for a network that proclaims themselves to be "“the most trusted name in news". That's a low bar, and yet one that CNN can not even credibly pass, now that Hamby has proudly tweeted to the world a shame that most seasoned reporters spend a lifetime trying to hide:
The link goes to a donation page to join Obama at a fundraiser in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday, September 22:
And should Hamby get cold feet, and regret coming out, well, the "whoops, wrong link!" dodge won't play:
If Hamby wanted to just report to his followers that Obama was heading to Milwaukee, he could have sent them a link to an Associated Press piece detailing such information without pushing them to a donation page:
"President Barack Obama is planning to visit Wisconsin later this month — another sign of the state's battleground status.
An invitation says Obama will hold a fundraiser and roundtable discussion at the Milwaukee Theater on Sept. 22."
Wonder if Hamby will keep his job at CNN?
Hey - HEY! Quit laughing, OK? Jeez...
