Big Reveal of the Day: Navy SEAL Who Killed Osama Bin Laden Identified
- -

This is Rob O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, according to The Daily Mail.

Up until now, the identity of the man who actually fired the bullet in 2011 during the top secret raid in Pakistan has been kept under wraps.

He was supposed to make the big reveal in an exclusive Fox News interview later this month, but O'Neill's father has come forward in advance with the information. And he isn't very worried about becoming a target for terrorism now that his son has been outed.

'People are asking if we are worried that ISIS will come and get us because Rob is going public. I say I'll paint a big target on my front door and say come and get us.'

Maybe he should be worried about what Fox News is going to do them now that they lost their big scoop?

Interrupting on air news reporters is an age old tradition, and now thanks to Florida, we have our latest contender in the battle to become the next viral sensation: Captain Hornblaster.

ABC Action News reporter Sarina Fazan was busy discussing Charlie Crist, when he appeared behind her shouting his name.

Apple News of the Day: CEO Tim Cook Comes Out as Gay
- -

Apple CEO Tim Cook is making headlines Thursday, and not because of a new Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad. In a column for Bloomerg Businessweek, Cook has come out to the public as a gay man.

"While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven't publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."

He admits that many of his colleagues already knew, and he has not been silent in the past about speaking up publicly on discrimination.

He also says that privacy is a big issue for him, but "if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it's worth the trade-off with my own privacy."

No reason to name the killer. We don't want to show people an easy way to get their name on the news. Praise the hero, not the killer.
