GWU Suicide Tragically Coincides with Obama Speech. That is the headline over at Fox News.
George Washington University students in Washington, D.C. learned of a tragic coincidence of timing on their campus Wednesday. As President Obama delivered a speech on deficit reduction in the Jack Morton Auditorium, university officials were learning one of their students had committed suicide in his dorm room across campus.
GWU officials tell Fox that police were notified about the incident around 2pm, which happens to be at the same time that President Obama was speaking. A source tells Fox that the incident may have occurred earlier, noting that police went knocking on the student’s door at 1:30pm.
Something tells me the President’s speech had nothing to do with the suicide. I believe we call this a non-sequitur. Although, coming from Fox News, it doesn’t surprise me. Fallacies abound.
