Alledgedly

On Twitter I asked Mika Brzezinski, cohost of MSNBC's Morning Joe, why she referred to "American hero Chris Kyle" rather than "alleged American hero Chris Kyle." Of course I received no answer, but I am reminded of newsman Don Fulsom. He was a rookie news reader at a Buffalo, N.Y., radio station when he was fired after beginning his Easter-morning broadcast with these words:
Today, millions of Christians around the world are celebrating the alleged resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Not that I think Brzezinski said what she said for fear of being fired. She probably believes that Kyle was a real hero.
