Obama Calls Kanye A “JackAss”
ABC news reporter Terry Moran is making some noise with his twitter account. During an interview with President Obama Moran tweeted: “President Obama just called Kanye a jackass for his outburst at VMA’s when Taylor Swift won. Now that’s Presidential.” The comment that was made was supposed to be off the record and as journalist Terry should have kept it at that. Moran tried to do some damage control and delete the post but it doesn’t work when you have over a million followers! You can still find it here.
An ABC spokesman explained to Politico.com exactly what happened.
“In the process of reporting on remarks by President Obama that were made during a CNBC interview, ABC News employees prematurely tweeted a portion of those remarks that turned out to be from an off-the-record portion of the interview. This was done before our editorial process had been completed. That was wrong. We apologize to the White House and CNBC and are taking steps to ensure that it will not happen again.”
The White House had no immediate comment but someone is going to ask the Prez sooner or later.
