Councilman John Filion believes that the squirrels are behind this. He said the city will be installing some squirrel-proof lights so citizens can get “the warm fuzzies.”

The free press marches on.

Journalists speak truth to power — no matter how nuts their subject might be.

That’s the case here, when a Canadian reporter tried to talk to a squirrel regarding some damaged Christmas lights. Apparently, squirrels have been chewing through the lights in Mel Lastman Square in Toronto, leaving the area in a holiday blackout. Finally, the citizens of Toronto and Whoville have something in common. Still the pen is mightier than the tooth, and one brave journalist vowed to get to the bottom of this. Watch below as CBC reporter tries to get some answers from this "furry grinch."

In a completely surreal scene, local and national media swarmed and entered the apartment of San Bernardino shooters Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik lived.



The FBI turned the apartment back over to the landlord, who pried off ply wood that covered the door and then seemingly invited anyone to go through the apartment.



The Law Enforcement Analyst for CNN seemed visible upset and dumbfounded over the media's irresponsible rummaging of the scene, and how the FBI seemed to have turned it over.



MSNBC Reporters and Producers essentially doxxed one of the shooter's mothers.



Not to be outdone, CNN reported on anything and everything that seemed related.



And to think that Cable news outlets were some of the ones calling Internet forum communities the 'dangerous mobs' that were only looking for 'vigilante justice'.
