CNN with Yet Another Journalism Fail

CNN anchor Carol Costello goes on the air and reads US Embassy statement and Romney condemnation without noting that Embassy statement was released prior to the attacks.

10:51 PM: If I’m not mistaken Wolf Blitzer just did the same thing. Amazing.

Here’s the rush transcript of Blitzer’s remarks …

Mitt Romney just a little while before the president issued a very strong statement himself, condemning these attacks but at the same time the same time condemning the initial statement by the US Embassy in Cairo which was clearly a misguided statement that went after those who produced these kinds of films. And didn’t directly, directly condemn those who attacked the US Embassy in Cairo.

Again, if the press reports are accurate, the statement came before the attacks. So it couldn’t condemn a future event.
