KNX 1070 played it and claimed it was the real thing.

You can hear (what certainly sounded like) one of the cops yelling "YOU! Come over here!" The command was given more than once.

I had the impression he was yelling at Evans.

I heard no sounds of microphone movement after these words were heard.

Maybe FOX should pre-empt Obama’s speech with live coverage, complete with helicopters and Shepherd Smith.

Dorner was an Obama supporter. Now he is a crispy critter.

The cabin he was supposed to be in, is now on fire.
They aren’t even sure if the animal is inside.

How did this reporter get on scene so fast when all of Southern California’s LE are looking for Dorner and couldn’t find him? Maybe he was listening to Police scanner and decided to show up for the breaking story?

Not terribly bright of him. But he’s blessed to be alive.

Maybe they can duck-tape Shep to the bottom of the helicopter and fly over the house where Evans is holed up.

I’m praying for this guy’s conscience sake that he didn’t end up being embedded and distract those officers. One of them died and the other is in critical condition. Prayers...

I'd be happy if they'd duck-tape Schlepper to a chair and then duck-tape his mouth shut.

His tears would put out the fire and his mascara would run and it'd just not make for good TV

You got that right! Obama doesn’t want any one to rain on his parade even he looks like his son.

The news is a little confusing. Do you know if this happened at the original cabin where the women were being held?

Evans, from KCAL/KCBS, was on the scene when this story broke around 12:20, he was probably on assignment up there since last week. If you listen to KFI or KNX when they replay Evans’ report you can hear the police yelling at Evans during the initial shoot out. Right after the shootout was when they closed roads and grounded the news helos, thus why all other reporters are shown broadcasting from the side of the road on hwy 38

“...before SOTU rally tonight”

Heaven forbid Bambi’s ratings are lowered. I can’t watch him. Just can’t do it. Wake me when it’s over.

They played it when they picked up their live broadcast after the 3:00 (California time) top-of-the-hour news and weather, so it would have been at 3:10 or so.

They said in their intro that their reporter Carter Evens was "right in the thick of it" and that he had a cell phone which he put in speaker mode "so we could all hear" what happened.

Then they played a recording of that audio. If memory serves, they bleeped out one or two words, which may have been profanity.

I interpreted the phrase "in the thick of it" to mean he was at the scene, perhaps between the LEOs and Dorner's location.

I only heard the recording once.

If Evans was close enough to cause a tactical complication - as someone mentioned above - I wouldn't be surprised if that's the only time they play that particular recording.

He held the couple hostage, and stole their truck. He then crashed the truck and took cover in the empty cabin. Why do I know this, cos I’ve been tuned into KFI when the story broke. Reports now are the LEs are smoking cigarettes while the cabin burns... What time is SOTU propaganda on ? ;)

Heh heh, obviously so. They certainly edited some interesting material out of the bit I heard.

At the very least, this reporter experienced firsthand why Californian citizens should have the right to high capacity magazines and defense rifles. When the #HTF and you are up against a monster like this, shouldn’t the public have the right to defend themselves and their loved ones in the best way possible if they choose?

They were taking cover behind the tires of their vehicle? Oh boy...

I’m surprised nobody yelled ‘serpentine’!

I might actually watch Fox News once in awhile again if they had the balls and motivation to do something like that. What a great idea, Eva.

Dorner was spotted leaving the San Bernardino Mountains by California game wardens and exchanged fire with them, not spotted by the sheriff and police in the Big Bear area.

Ahhh... no. No indeed.

No, members of the public who go up against a monster like this have the right to become corpses.

Then the MSM can interview their greving survivors and use the footage to sell advertising.
