Don’t believe everything you read on the internet:
Miami’s top-rated talk show host told its listeners Tuesday that Rep. Katherine Harris had died in a plane crash on Monday.
WQAM 560 AM host Neil Rogers apparently saw a posting online that said Harris had died in a plane crash Monday, while in a secret meeting with Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in Canada.
“Katherine Harris is dead!” reported Rogers on the air, “I’ve got the news story right here, it’s on the Internet. A plane crash! Yes!!”
However, while Rogers was reporting on Harris’ death, she was appearing live — and alive — on the floor of the House of Representatives in Washington. Her appearance was carried live on C-SPAN.
Rogers would not comment on the mix-up on Tuesday, and he refused to release the transcripts of the program to reporters.
Rogers, of course, is the obnoxious liberal suckhole who likes to refer to Condoleeza Rice as Bush’s ‘black-haired answer mammy’ and various other racial slurs.
