    Anyone notice what the news is saying?

    Some years ago..

    Osama Bin Laden's name was pronounced just that way... Ummm..

    The media is really really really staying away from saying Osama Bin Laden, and just hanging with the Bin Laden portion.

    I've also noticed that when they show the text its Usama Bin Laden, however I've yet to hear anyone utter the name Osama...

    Just something I've noticed this evening..

    Carry on. Here is a dancing banana..


    And

    I think its because several news channels and other shows have said Obama is dead instead of Osama, so they just stick with Bin Laden so they do not accidentally say the Presidents name.

    HAHAHAHA, That's a ton of Freudian slips
    “The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    I think I heard O'Reilly make that mistake, but he immediately corrected hisself.

    At least he corrected himself, some people just say obama repeatedly. its pretty funny to me how many times they can mess up his name and not even realize.

    I understand that, perhaps.. However aren't news anchors supposed to be good at speaking? Hell, even the CGI departments avoided the name altogether.. Thats ******* lazy as I look at it.
