Is it too late to call the trophy shop, or have they already started engraving Chris Matthews’ name on the award for the most ridiculous question asked by the media tonight regarding the Christopher Dorner standoff? Matthews was unable to pin down exactly how many African-Americans, if any, live in Big Bear, but that didn’t stop CNN’s Anderson Cooper asking if Dorner will be harder to track at night.


Oh, snap.


We have a flag on the play.

Anderson Cooper also responded on Twitter.

We apologize for the error.
