Breaking News: President Obama To Address The Nation
Reported by Ellen - May 1, 2011 -
Fox News is saying that it must be serious for the president to be speaking so suddenly at this hour on a Sunday. Geraldo Rivera just said it must be "deeply, profoundly significant" and "urgent." Open thread for discussion before and after. UPDATE: I'm hearing through the Twitter-sphere that Bin Laden is dead. UPDATE 2: Video stream after the jump. UPDATE 3: Obama Bin Laden confirmed dead. Video of Obama's speech after the jump.
Geraldo Rivera just confirmed Osama Bin Laden is dead.
"Isn't that wonderful news?" Rivera crowed. "How wonderful is it?"
Ugh, I'm a native New Yorker but do we have to be bloodthirsty?
