Yahoo News Fires DC Bureau Chief

Hope he has a backup career. Yahoo News fired Washington bureau chief David Chalian after he got caught during an online broadcast on Wednesday suggesting that Mitt Romney and the GOP were not concerned about African-Americans suffering from Hurricane Isaac. “They’re not concerned at all. They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning,” he said. Yahoo News released a statement saying, “David Chalian’s statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!.”
