CNN Reporter Uses Racial Slur (in Context) on Live T.V.

Way to go lady.

During Sunday’s broadcast of “CNN Newsroom,” correspondent Susan Candiotti — the reporter covering the recent shootings of five black men in Tulsa, Okla. — used a racial slur on live television.

Candiotti used the “n” word while reading aloud what one of the suspects in the shooting, 19-year-old Jacob England, wrote recently on his Facebook page.

“Now, this, according to relatives, has troubled him ever since and CNN has also discovered what police have,” Candiotti said. “There was a Facebook posting made just the other day, written by the suspect in this case, that police are examining.”

“And it reads like this: ‘Today is two years that my dad has been gone, shot by’ — and please excuse the language, it’s very sensitive — ‘Shot by a fucking ******. It’s hard not to go off between that and [England's fiancée] Sheran.’”

At the end of Candiotti’s segment, “CNN Newsroom” anchor Fredricka Whitfield apologized to viewers for the slur.

“Susan Candiotti in Tulsa — and we apologize to our viewers for such profanities being used on our air,” Whitfield said.

This is the second time in recent weeks a CNN reporter has uttered the word on live television. Last month, Drew Griffin of CNN’s special investigations unit used a racial slur on live television when reporting on a case involving a federal hate crime in Mississippi.

I don't think it's a racial slur if she is quoting someone.

Of course there has to be the politically correct disclaimer as God forbid someone is offended.

If she is reading a quote related to this crime, she has nothing to feel ashamed about.

Very few people are racist. It's really in people's heads.
