A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    Seems to me the classy thing to do would be not to draw attention to it.

    No.

    Yes.

    Look, the original submission link has appeared on every story for a long time now, stemming from editors being slammed for too much or too little editing.

    To choose this story to post, and then edit out much of the original invective or point of view, is kind of two-faced. You want to have the story (10 hours late), and you want to take a couple swipes at the submitter, and then you want to make it plain to all that you did so.

    Too much.

    Its a major news story, Don't like the slant of any submissions? Then grab a headline from the MSM (which had this up hours before submission) and go with that.

    No, you are mistaken. I've always had this sig.

      In all cases, when presenting the news, you should make it as non-biased as possible, so the reader can make there own opinion. Removing the last sentence was the right thing to do. To allow it would turn this into nothing more than a click-bait/troll article.

      I think just the story is required and let the submitter make his observations in a post
