Oh, CNN! As Twitchy reported Saturday, a Boeing 777 crashed at San Fransisco International Airport. Two fatalities have been confirmed. To CNN, the most pressing issue was whether or not to call the tragic crash “horrifying.”
CNN anchor resists and insists its horrifying. Excuse is they haven’t reported death toll yet.

More nonsense from @CNN. D-bag anchor: "I understand what you're saying, but if *I* was on this plane, it would be horrifying."

CNN's coverage of this plane crash is a bigger disaster than the accident.

As usual, Wolf Blitzer’s coverage put the absurd icing on the ridiculous cake.
I want some of whatever Wolf Blitzer's having.

God Wolf Blitzer is really full of derp right now.
— Jimmy (@JimmyPrinceton) July 7, 2013
@kristencusato Forget Twitter… just watch Wolf Blitzer if you want to see someone who can't get a handle on the Asiana crash facts.

But wait, there was more.
Wolf Blitzer, a plane crashed and 2 people are dead. THIS IS NOT A MIRACLE!!!
— Antoine H. (@antoinedharris) July 7, 2013
CNN asking lady if she was shocked when she saw A PLANE CRASH. So much dumb in that question.
— Jason C. Watts (@jasoncwatts) July 6, 2013
Well, it’s not like it was horrifying or anything, right CNN?
— Dave Silverstone (@dwsNY) July 6, 2013
@dannysullivan Tried to watch CNN but Wolf Blitzer drove me CRAZY with his speculations. Someone needs to slap a padlock over his mouth!

@wolfblitzer there all but one of been accounted for….I guess your stupidity about them all being sucked out the back can be retracted
— Corey MacPherson (@CM14) July 7, 2013
Now they say only 4 people unaccounted for in the place crash and as usual Wolf Blitzer is dumbfounded at the numbers he clearly failed math
— Aaron (@air807) July 7, 2013
Wolf Blitzer is an asshat. 30 mins of hammering on a report of 60+ ppl unaccounted for, even after after the official press conf says 1.
— Ken Pelletier (@pelletk) July 7, 2013
— Neil Cassan (@neilcassan) July 7, 2013
Wolf Blitzer the only journalist that can't figure out only 1 still unaccounted for. Says numbers are confusing asks reporter for update
— Brian Gregory (@KWCH12NDBrian) July 7, 2013
— Gary Napadov (@gnapadov) July 7, 2013
CNN's Wolf Blitzer pumped-up a misleading report that up to 60 people may have been unaccounted for in the crash to drive coverage "drama"
— Domani Capital (@AdaptToReality) July 7, 2013
The discussion between Wolf Blitzer and the Brit about the unaccounted for is like a twisted version of "Who's on First".
— desertdawg (@desertdawg) July 7, 2013
Math. It’s so very hard.
Wolf Blitzer trying to argue math is cringe-inducing television.
— PATRICK WILLIAMS (@pwilliamsNHL) July 7, 2013
Wolf Blitzer's trying to do math again you guys. #cnn
— Tony Fly (@tfly) July 7, 2013
— Alex Hanson (@theAlexHanson) July 6, 2013
Wherein we learn that Wolf Blitzer can't add in his head! Cripes. #WolfIsConfused
— guerrilla girl (@guerrillagirl) July 7, 2013
@wolfblitzer dude simple math! Why was that so difficult ??
— kiddogo (@kiddogo) July 7, 2013
@wolfblitzer Quit trying to do math on the air. It's evident you have no math ability whatsoever
— Pigott_Oinks (@Pigott_Oinks) July 7, 2013
A cheap Texas Instruments calculator could have saved Wolf Blitzer and CNN about 40 minutes of broadcast news time today.

In addition to being a poor listener, Wolf Blitzer is severely math-challenged.
— Tom Haydon (@Tweatist) July 7, 2013
Just Christ, Wolf Blitzer, you fucking moron. The guy just said ONE unaccounted for. Did @CNN amputate your ears?
— Mike Ownby (@MikeOwnby) July 7, 2013
— Bode Gbagbo (@ewenturner) July 7, 2013
@CNN Wolf Blitzer needs a remedial math course.
— Barry Kolb (@bkolb) July 7, 2013
@wolfblitzer stop Talking about 60 or 4. They just gave you an update, listen instead of trying to count using your fingers and toes.
— Jeff Spencer (@jeff1091) July 7, 2013
Basic arithmetic not a strong suit of Wolf Blitzer's
— Matt Gierl (@mattgierl) July 7, 2013
You can just picture Wolf twirling his hair madly.
Twitter users sum up CNN’s coverage in a snarky nutshell:
— Ira Clements (@ClementsIra) July 6, 2013
There is only one thing to remember in times like these, do not listen to Wolf Blitzer.
— Jose Reyes (@josereyes0) July 7, 2013
CNN really couldn't choose a worse anchor during a fluid news event than Wolf Blitzer.
— Dan Somers (@chicagobigd) July 7, 2013
.@wolfblitzer you suck
— mike schneider (@MikeASchneider) July 7, 2013
Tell us how you really feel!
You know, we joke, but Wolf Blitzer does well for being a half man/half wolf hybrid.
— Libby Hill (@midwestspitfire) July 7, 2013
I'm sorry, I'm being told that Wolf Blitzer is NOT actually a wolf/human hybrid. Which means that he is just really underperforming.
— Libby Hill (@midwestspitfire) July 7, 2013
SOMEONE GET WOLF BLITZER A SPREADSHEET AND AN ABACUS
— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) July 7, 2013
Mr. Blitzer, blissfully self-unaware, tweeted this out:
I'm anchoring our @CNN breaking news coverage on the San Francisco plane crash. Two confirmed dead; upwards of 60 unaccounted for.
