Oh this is shining example on where media get their stories, and more importantly WHY.

Quote:CNN) -- A rodeo stunt at the Missouri State Fair has come under criticism after a clown donned a Barack Obama mask and stuck on a broom that descended from his backside.

The stunt took place during the bull riding competition on Saturday night.

The stunt sickened Perry Beam, who came to the fair in Sedalia with his wife and a student from Taiwan to "give him a little piece of Americana."

Beam likened the atmosphere to a Klan rally.

"It wasn't clean; it wasn't fun. It was awful; it was sickening," Beam said, "It was racist."

Now this is where it originated...

Quote:Did you hear about the rodeo clown at the Missouri State Fair who dressed as President Obama? CNN says one witness likened the atmosphere to a Klan rally as the announcer shouted "We're going to stomp Obama now!" As a result, the state's governor issued an apology and the clown has been banned for life from the state fair, which is like the rodeo clown equivalent of the death sentence.

The clown has also received numerous death threats to top it off -- all for a practice that had been around for 20 years.

Yup, the same act had been done with Bush, Clinton, Other Bush, and even Reagan. (You could even read about a similar routine back in 1994 when people didn't give a shït -- it's pretty much the same thing, right down to the part where there was a broom up Bush Sr.'s ass.) And as for that one witness who said he got a racist vibe from the whole thing, he's exactly that: "one witness." Yep, the entire outrage came from a single Facebook post.
