NPR Apologizes To Girl Who Cried Over Presidential Elections And ‘Bronco Bama’

NPR Apologizes To Girl Who Cried Over Presidential Elections And 'Bronco Bama'NPR has issued a formal apology to Abigael Evans, the 4-year-old Colorado girl who burst into tears—and Americans’ hearts—while listening to a public radio report about the seemingly endless 2012 presidential election.

‘Campaign’s gone on long enough’

“On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her,” NPR said in a statement posted on its blog. “We must confess, the campaign’s gone on long enough for us, too. Let’s just keep telling ourselves: ‘Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.'”

‘Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney’

The video of an inconsolable Abigael telling her mom she’s “tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney” has racked up more than 1.5 million views since Tuesday, when it was posted on YouTube.

Not to worry. Grace Hood, a reporter for NPR Colorado affiliate KUNC, reports that Abigael is now happy thanks, in part, to an NPR Politics pin given to her by the station.

Test: Miami Cannibal Did Not Use ‘Bath Salts’

The naked Florida man who chewed off the face of another man last month in a zombie-like cannibal attack used marijuana but not “bath salts” as police had suspected, authorities said Wednesday.

Rudy Eugene, 31, was killed by a police officer after Eugene’s 18-minute attack on a homeless man. His body didn’t show “any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, or any adulterants found in street drugs,” according to the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department. “The department has also sought the assistance of an outside forensic toxicology reference laboratory, which has confirmed the absence of ‘bath salts,’ synthetic marijuana and LSD,” the statement said.

A video of last month’s incident shows Eugene coming across 65-year-old Ronald Poppo on a sidewalk along Miami’s MacArthur Causeway, stripping clothes off him and eventually chewing on his face. Police said Poppo lost 75% of his face in the attack.

Armando Aguilar, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, told CNN affiliate WPLG last month that he suspected Eugene was under the influence of “bath salts,” a drug that contains synthetic stimulants that can “cause chest pains, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, agitation, hallucinations, extreme paranoia and delusions,” according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse.
