I have a decent amount of respect for journalists. I aspired to be one before becoming a corporate sell-out. But DAMN, what is up with the news this morning?
AP headlines declared Shamu attacked a trainer. Or as CNN puts it: "Kids, moms freak when Shamu attacks" Oh crap, I think, clicking on the story. Turns out it wasn’t Shamu, but some other freaking killer whale: Kasatka. Hi, mistaken identity? Do they ‘all look the same’? Or has "Shamu" become the Kleenex of killer whales? Lazy.
Some news outlets are still claiming Shamu did it. If the glove don’t fit, you must acquit.
