Thursday on Fox News, Tucker Carlson made it clear: He believes CNN’s senior media correspondent Brian Stelter recklessly jumped the gun by retweeting the controversial Youtube video taken on board a Delta flight which went viral on Wednesday morning.
The video featured a Youtube prankster named Adam Saleh claiming to be kicked off of a Delta flight for speaking Arabic, though the airline concluded in its investigation that Saleh was engaging in “provacative behavior.”
In an interview with The Hill media reporter and former Mediaite columnist Joe Concha, Carlson said that Stelter, who regularly urges news organizations to proceed with caution in cases such as these, failed to practice what he preaches by not googling Saleh to discover his history of posting similar videos. –Mediaite
In a statement, Delta said: “Two customers were removed from this flight and later rebooked after a disturbance in the cabin resulted in more than 20 customers expressing their discomfort. We’re conducting a full review to understand what transpired. We are taking allegations of discrimination very seriously; our culture requires treating others with respect.”
Saleh has more than 1.6 million subscribers to his TrueStoryASA YouTube channel, and more than 2.2 million subscribers to his Adam Saleh Vlogs YouTube channel. Saleh’s YouTube channels are full of prank videos as well as videos about Muslim life, and he is a self-described “professional idiot.”
Delta Airlines acted in a way they thought was best for the security of their passengers and crew. These jack- holes who go onto flights and create controversy for the sake of getting hits on their YouTube videos need to be held responsible for their actions. What happens when the next radical Islamist or group of Islamists commits an act of terror on a plane and Delta allows them to stay over fear of damaging their brand? Who will be held responsible for that decision? Not CNN’s cowardly faux journalist Brian Selter, but Delta…that’s who. Everyone needs to take a moment to send a tweet of appreciate, make a call or email Delta to thank them for their decision to remove these ass-clowns for hire from their flight.

Let Delta Airlines know you stand with their decision to have YouTube pranksters removed from the flight, because terrorism by Islamic radicals against innocent people is NOT a laughing matter.
