“(CNN)At least 77 people were killed Thursday night when a large truck plowed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, tweeted regional President Christian Estrosi.

The driver pointed his tractor-trailer into the crowd and accelerated, mowing bodies over, witnesses said. Police shot the driver to death, authorities said. Nobody has claimed responsibility
Here are the latest developments in the tragedy:

• The attack in Nice, France, began when an occupant of the truck shot into the crowd and then drove for 2 kilometers along the pavement of the Boulevard des Anglais, the main street in Nice, regional President Christian Estrosi told CNN affiliate BFM-TV. He said police later found firearms, explosives and grenades in the truck.”

      They massacred 10,000s in Sri Lanka mostly Tamil Hindus and also Muslims in
      Burma. 1000s of Muslims killed by the Buddhist govt in Thailand as well.

      +Dante Badtower The reason why Cenk gets mad is because when a Muslim
      commits mass murder the “media” calls it “a terrorist attack” and when
      non-muslim does it it’s a lone gunman with mental issues” see the disparity?

      TYT called the suspects as suspects because they were suspects. At the time
      no one had been charged or convicted yet as far as they knew. You don’t
      convict people before a trial.

      As for the “video evidence” care to link one? I’ve not seen one.

      +Erik Dumas Animation
      “So we agree that the San Bernadino shooter was in fact a right wing gun
      nut.”

      And still you continue the silly semantics game. The relevant part here is
      what Cenk was on about, who he thought the perpetrators were, not the
      technical merits of one label vs the other.

      “I don’t get it, are you criticizing their handling of this report or not?”

      So we agree that you don’t get it, but why jump to conclusions then, when
      you are in words so opposed to such actions. You could have just asked me
      in the first place. So let me clear it up for you. What I’m discussing is
      not the particular, specific mistakes done by TYT in a single video, but
      their inconsistency, the double standards and hypocrisy, depending on who
      they presume the perpetrators are. I would have no issues at all if they
      would always wait for corroborated facts and proper investigations, before
      commenting (and pontificating). But they so obviously don’t and I have an
      issue with that – as everyone concerned with proper reporting should have.

    • Erik Dumas Animation
      July 15, 2016 at 6:15 PM

      +tubsent So why was that not your initial criticism of this video?

      You original reply to the OP was that TYT is being a Muslim apologist by
      not reporting unconfirmed speculation that the perpetrator was a Muslim.
      Why would you be agreeing with a commenter that is presenting conjecture as
      fact, if your problem with TYT is purely their lack of journalistic
      integrity and hypocrisy when it comes to reporting certain topics? Are you
      fine with people who lack journalistic integrity, just as long as they lack
      it equally in every topic? Or could it be that you’re quick to point out
      flaws and inconsistencies when it comes to groups you disagree with, but
      when it comes to people and groups you agree with you have a much harder
      time seeing and criticizing it.

      I would have taken your hypocrisy argument far more seriously if you hadn’t
      obviously already developed a politicized opinion based off conjecture. If
      you’re going to call someone a hypocrite, do make sure you’re not doing the
      exact same thing you’re criticizing them for.

      July 15, 2016 at 8:05 AM

      Exactly! Cenk explains it. He says that “a TRUCK loaded with weapons killed
      people”…..
      Everything about the driver and motives is ” Unclear”.
      It was probably a White Cop driving the Evil Truck.
