Report: Tipster Tells Police 25 to 30 Bodies In Mass Grave Near Houston


Early reports like this always cause my Skeptical Meter to go off, but you never know. 

Story. (Updated tweets from this guy.)

Edit three hours later: Well, it looks like ol' Liberally Lean smelled this one from a mile away. Before every news outlet goes crazy next time, they might want to check out that the tip came from a "self professed psychic". And did you notice that a judge issued a search warrant based upon his finding of probable cause? That's about par for what's left of the Fourth Amendment.

Is that the same meter that went off when Breitbart broke the Weinergate story?

They better be careful. Fifteen deputies (per the twitter account) can mess up a crime scene in a hurry.

This reminds me of when they posted the list of "Missing Persons" in Joplin, MO after the tornado hit. The press was talking about "as many as 1500 people missing and/or unacccounted for". The last legitimate number I saw published was 29 missing.

Don't get me wrong, as a tornado alley native, I feel sorry for all of those families that had someone that passed away due to the storm, my point is the tendency of the media to exaggerate the facts in order to have us tune in to their news broadcasts...Live at 10.

Local media mantra: report first (gotta be first!), check facts later.

There is no integrity in the media.

Sounds like they just checked inside the house. The bodies are probably outside....maybe.

Jarhead, That's why Andrew Breitbart is being heralded for what he does.

I checked with my Ouija Board this morning. False alarm.

Jarhead said...

And your point is?

What does Breitbart have to do with the mass grave story?

Oh, I see what you're doing. You're trying to spin my comment into a liberal/conservative thing.

I have no bias towards the media. They're all self-serving kooks with zero integrity, IMO.

Just like liberals. Happy now?

My nap time isn't until 13:00.

I appreciate your interest in my well being, however.

And yes. I will take fries with that.

Jar, I was pointing out that Breitbart is the only one in the media with integrity. You're the one that brought up how they have none. Little thenthitive today, aren't we?

She shoulda used one of them Magic 8 Balls. Those always work for me.

Jarhead said...

"Thenthitive" is my word and you cannot use it. My attorney will be in touch.

And if you think that holding a politician hostage with x-rated photos constitutes integrity, then I feel sorry for you.

Tater Salad said...

The words "Politician" and "Integrity" should never be used in a sentence together, Jar. Didn'cha know...?!

I absolutely think holding the photo constitutes integrity. You never know what that crazy liberal weenie would do to Breitbart. I would lose all respect for him if he had released it. Tell Skippy when you hire him, that I said hello to both of you thenthitive weenies.
