Brenna’s Take on the News: Doritos and Rupert Murdoch
“Man who calls police to say he’s too high, found in a pile of Doritos”
An Ohio man lived out the perfect stoner stereotype today, Oct. 6, when he called the Austintown Police Department to tell them he’s “too high.”
According to the article, police found the man in a pile Doritos, Pepperidge Farm Gold Fish crackers and Chips Ahoy cookies.
Getting too high is never good — for a variety of medical, legal and practical reasons. But when looking at situations one could find themselves in after smoking way too much pot, sitting in the middle of a sea of what looks like the aftermath of a convenience store explosion ranks highly in the “not bad” category.
The police report said charges are pending for possession charges, but I imagine the bigger problem he’ll be facing before then will be figuring out how to get all of those Dorito’s crumbs out of carpet for months.
“Rupert Murdoch apologizes for suggesting Obama is not a real black president”
An 84-year-old white man passed his judgement on what exactly constitutes “blackness” yesterday evening, Oct. 7.
Rupert Murdoch, a conservative media mogul who owns News. Corp, tweeted this, alluding to President Obama:
Naturally, the internet had none of it. What exactly is a “fake” black President? Maybe Morgan Freeman in “Deep Impact,” but definitely not President Obama. I can’t help but feel the word “real” was code for “guy whose political agenda will fit the narrative of the Fox News channel.” I also can’t help but find the irony in all of the work the news outlet he owns does to address this “racial divide:”
Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera:
Murdoch has since apologized for the comment, calling both Carson and Obama “charming.”
