Something heard during an open mic moment on ABC News. Unknown to the person speaking, the mic was on, and caught someone saying "they are happy to have black people drowning.." then laughter.

Sickening. More proof of not just bias, but agenda and sickness on network news.

LIsten to the first few seconds.



ABC News Republican National Convention Live Stream, 08.27.12 - YouTube

ABC News better clean up its act. Whoever is responsible for this should be canned, unless of course ABC News agrees with the statement, which is possible.

Was it said by someone at ABC news or a convention-goer making a comment about ABC news?

After all, it's an open mic at a convention where folks were throwing peanuts at black women.

I was about to ask the same question. How are we suppose to know if it was someone at ABC news that made the statement or a supporter? Where is the picture.

Seems to me they were commenting about the smiles on the Romney's faces. ABC News better have an answer for this.

And those people were kicked out as they should have been.

Ok...again, how are we suppose to know that a Romney supporter did not make the statement about the smiles on their faces? Everyone is ogling about how cute they are as a couple, where is the visual of this? Who's mic was on? Who loaded the audio on the internet? Why would ABC dime out themselves? Come on, gotta do better than this

Im trying to find out more. There is word it was David Cahlian of Yahoo News but I cant get confirmation. It doesnt sound like it was just someone in the crowd. You hear a producer speaking and two others, pretty clearly.

It seems they are confident it was indeed Yahoo News Washington chief David Chalian. Not sure exactly how he was on ABC's broadcast yet.

So why start a thread with the title above if even YOU don't know who did it? This is the second thread you've started today depending on one sided information without any additional details.

Well to be fair to myself, I asked in the other thread in the first post if someone could confirm it. And also, it is clear that MSNBC only showed selected highlights of minority speakers, and did not carry them live. That wasnt an accident.

This thread here, what happened obviously happened. Its just finding out who exactly said it. Which seems to have been found out now.

I have no issues apologizing or editing something that I post that will be factually wrong.
