Dana, as always, is wrong. CNN didn't call it a radio station, they called it a local radio show on KFTK. Guess they still hold a grudge. Dana corrects them, with a flair, of course. CNN did vet the video (at least they did in this report by Anderson Cooper) by siting a source within the Ferguson police confirming that's how it went.
When listening to the clip when Josie was on the Dana show see if you can catch something weird in what she says. That's right, why would a friend of Darren Wilson ever call him, "the officer"? It brings me to my next point. Is what Spike Lee said about this being a plant true? Is she reading from a script? It's not out of the realm of possibility, but in putting it out there, I've just made the same mistake Dana made in this case. In her hurry to be first (see my last article) she put a narrative out there. She covers herself by saying she doesn't know if it is fact, so take it with a grain of salt. But even that is dangerous. Just like if I mentioned that Premiere Radio has a service where actors are paid to call into radio shows. I mean, technically Dana could be using that service with her callers. The caller did call Darren Wilson, a dear friend, "the officer". Also, Spike Lee is correct in stating it is a little convenient timing.
Just a little food for thought.
