"During the broadcast, Chalian can be heard saying that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann were "not concerned at all" and "happy to have a party with black people drowning." Chalian seemed to be referring to the simultaneous occurrence of the GOP convention convening in Tampa and Hurricane Isaac hammering its way across the gulf coast and through New Orleans."

    "A Yahoo spokesperson released a statement regarding the company's decision to fire Chalian "effective immediately:"
David Chalian's statement was inappropriate and does not represent the views of Yahoo!. He has been terminated effective immediately. We have already reached out to the Romney campaign, and we apologize to Mitt Romney, his staff, their supporters and anyone who was offended.


    I'm offended that a good reporter was fired just to please these two vapid fat cats, Mitt and Ann Romney. But no doubt, Yahoo doesn't care about that.

    I mean, what's left out of the equation is even a pretense of considering whether or not what he says is true. All that matters is the Romney's discomfiture which is all that matters. Yahoo is falling all over themselves "reaching out" to the Duke and Duchess. Next I expect this Yahoo spokersperson to offer up his or her kidney.

   What an injustice that the someone had the nerve to say something unflattering about the Duke and Duchess.
