Is it a bomb or not? Original reports stated there was an explosion in Chelsea, New York and a second “device” was found near the area of the explosion.
The definition of a bomb: an item filled with destructive material, explosive material, gas, smoke or incendiary material designed in such a way to explode on impact or setoff by a remote control device, time device, or fuse.
The device found close to the scene of the explosion was a “pressure cooker with wires connecting a cell phone…pressure cooker containing with explosive material, bearings and bb’s”.
The item – a pressure cooker, the remote control device – cell phone, contents – explosive material, bearings and bb’s. Looks like a duck, acts like a duck, it is a duck. Looks like a bomb, acts like a bomb, it is a… BOMB!
Presidential candidate came out publicly a bomb had exploded in Chelsea, New York. Media has come out against presidential candidate Donald Trump for calling it a “bomb”; the media said there was no confirmation a bomb was involved despite the discover a second “device”.
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed Trump for calling it a bomb, yet within minutes she was calling it a bomb, before law enforcement (on live TV) said a “bomb exploded” in Chelsea, NY.
As Donald Trump was vocal about a bomb exploding and a second bomb being found, the media was quick to respond. Not only providing news of the incident but the media also attempted to turn people against Trump by saying Trump had no evidence it was a bomb. In fact some media outlets reported the explosion might have been a gas leak even after law enforcement stated it was a bomb. Media also chose the words “explosive device” instead of the word “bomb” while the media went on a rampage against Trump for using the word bomb.
Once Hillary Clinton used the word bomb (by mistake?), the media did not go after her for using the word bomb instead of the phrase “explosive device”.
To the media, to those wishing to be politically correct, and those thinking there is a difference, looking it up, “explosive device” and “bomb” are the same thing.
If you want to use the phrase “explosive device” or the word “bomb”, fine, great, it is what it is. But don’t say an explosion with undetermined original is what it is even after law enforcement states it is a bomb or explosive device.
Don’t go after any person political candidate or not when the person uses the word “bomb”. Furthermore, if the media is going after one candidate for using the word bomb, then go after both. If you don’t it is considered bias. And the some media, far, left liberal reporters say the media is treating Donald Trump with a soft touch. Read the interviews, that is definitely not the case.
