Alternate headline for Priorities USA Action: Mitt Romney destroys another job

Yahoo News’ David Chalian hot-mic’d himself into the unemployment line last night:

Yahoo News has fired Washington bureau chief David Chalian after he was caught on a hot-mic during an online video broadcast today saying that Mitt Romney and his wife Ann had no problem with African Americans suffering as a result of Hurricane Isaac, a source familiar with the situation tells POLITICO.

“They’re not concerned at all. They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning,” Chalian said during the ABC News/Yahoo News webcast, in reference to the fact that the GOP convention in Tampa is taking place as Hurricane Isaac makes landfall on the north Gulf coast.

Yahoo News on Twitter:

Job interview at MSNBC in 3… 2… 1…

If you missed it, here’s the audio (h/t Stephen Gutowski). Chalian is the one here who sounds like Fred Figglehorn after huffing helium:

Previously I wrote that Chalian is now in the unemployment line, but that may not be entirely the case. He’s also listed on the faculty page at Georgetown University.

Oh, and one of the people who was upset she wasn’t chosen to moderate an upcoming presidential debate, Gwen Ifill, is standing behind Chalian, calling him “God’s gift to political journalism.” Ah, sweet objectivity.
