Florida Woman Carjacks Reporter's Ride While He Films Everything!! See REAL Grand Theft Auto HERE!

reporters car theft caught on video josh taylor venice crazy watch here

Who says journalism isn't a dangerous profession?

While Sarasota County Florida's fireman, policeman, & part-time lion-tamers could've very likely been sitting at home on their keisters this Saturday — possibly twiddling their respective thumbs — reporter Josh Taylor was putting his life on the line!!

The ABC newsman visited the Venice, Florida home of a chiropractor named Dr. Craig Siegal while investigating some potentially shady rental practices, but then something totes unexpected happened!!

A woman confronted Josh and told him to leave because he was trespassing, but he responded with what we in the biz like to call a FACT! He pointed out that the road he was parked on was actually public property which meant he didn't have to leave at all!

And that's when she stole his ride!!!!

Ch-ch-check out the AMAZEBALLZ vid…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

CNN Can Niether Confirm Nor Deny Their Own Crappy Coverage Of Boston Tragedies!

Filed under: TV NewsOops!Sad Sad

cnn-sources-somewhat-apologetic-after-boston-marathon-flubs

We understand trailing MSNBC and Fox News in ratings has them on edge, but that's no excuse to cut corners!!

CNN, like every other news outlet in the United States, focused around-the-clock coverage this week on the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Unlike most of those other news outlets, CNN's Peter King boasted to have "EXCLUSIVE!" information that suspects were arrested and the network blindly ran with it for much of Wednesday afternoon.

As we'd later all find out, CNN and Mr. King were very very wrongno arrest was made at all!

Maybe Peter's source was a liar. Or misinformed. Or imaginary.

We don't know, but millions of folks were trusting CNN and they dropped the ball!

While reporting rumor as fact is certainly one way to jazz up ratings, there is often dire consequences. Credibility, for one, is all but lost!

As one source from within CNN itself said

meredith-vieira-guest-star-prostitute-on-general-hospitalMeredith Vieira is most well known for her time on The View and The Today Show, as well even hosting the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, but soon enough, she'll be showing the daytime TV world exactly what she's made of…as a PROSTITUTE!

Only this time, she's not selling seXXXy timez!

As she explains:

Onion Names North Korea's Kim Jong-Un Sexiest Man Of 2012, Dupes Asian Newspapers

kim jong un onion sexiest man alive regurgitated satire fail

But with his honest face, bright blue eyes, and childlike wonder — can you really blame them?!

Just look at one stud straddling another (above), Kim Jong-un is the spitting image of a young Forest Whitaker!

It almost makes us wish we were born a horse's saddle!

Whereas editors from China's People's Daily & South Korea's The Korea Times, on the other hand hoof, feel more like a horse's rear-end!!

Faux news source The Onion named the North Korean leader 2012's sexiest man alive several weeks ago and those two Asian publications reprinted the article without realizing it was satirical!

The Onion describes their reasons for their decision

Scientology's Angry Letter To Vanity Fair Claims Bigotry, Ignorance And Threatens Legal Action!

We've all read or heard about Vanity Fair's dirty dish on Tom Cruise's relationship with Scientology and how it has affected his love life, but now we're hearing the Church's side of the story.

In an eight-page letter to Graydon Carter, the magazine's editor, the controversial religion's legal rep accuses Maureen Orth's piece of being "shoddy journalism, religious bigotry and potential legal liability."

Before the high-profile story was even in print, Scientology fired off the scathing letter to criticize Carter for ignoring "firsthand knowledge" from VF staff as he prepared to "publish a poorly researched and sourced story."

The letter refutes any and all allegations against the Church, especially any against its "ecclesiastical leader," David Miscavige. While the exposé claims that he secretly recorded Cruise's confessions during auditing sessions and served as a "third wheel" in his romantic relationships, the rep disputes the notion by citing Miscaviges extensive traveling. The letter reads:
