Josh Earnest at the The White House has just commented on the Virginia double killing.
Still no word on Flangan’s condition; last report it was critical.
WDBJÂ is welcoming two new reporters to its news team.
The Roanoke CBS-affiliate this week announced the additions of Bryce Williams (far left) and Orlando Salinas (near left).
Williams joins WDBJ as a multimedia journalist and general assignment reporter. He has worked as a reporter at a number of stations throughout the South, including WNCT in Greenville, NC, WTWC in Tallahassee, and WTOC in Savannah.
Salinas will work as a reporter at WDBJâ€™s New River Valley newsroom, based in Blacksburg, VA. Most recently, Salinas served as a national news correspondent for Fox News, based in Miami, where he covered domestic and international stories for over 12 years.
â€œAttracting Orlando and Bryce, two veteran reporters with an enormous scope of experience to our team, is a testament to the quality and professionalism of the news produced daily by the WDBJ7 team,â€ WDBJ news director Dan Dennison said in a statement.

When he was fired from the station WDBJ7 had to get to police to help escort him out of the office.
WDBJ7 General Manager tells FOW News that Flanagan was an unhappy man.
Alison Parker’s fiancee has spoken fondly of Alison on Twitter. Adam Ward’s girlfriend was working in the control room at WDBJ7 when Adam was shot and killed on live morning TV.
2PM: Franklin County, VA. Press Conference on the double shooting and the suspect, Flanagan.
Flangan is in critical condition.
I have not seen FOX News or MSNBC showing the actual live footage from this morning at 6:45AM on WDBJ7.
CNN’s Carol Costello showed the filming of the double murders two or three times at the top of the hour this morning as the only national news cast.
ABC News says the 23-page manifesto was sent from someone calling themselves Bryce Williams.
FOX News reports that there are conflicting reports about whether Flanagan is dead or alive.
WDBJ7 is a CBS affiliate but also partnering with CNN.
Alison Parker, 24, who was killed this morning actaully had her last day at WDBJ7 today. She was moving on to another city and another TV journalist job. And she was going to get married to her fiancee.
The General Manager of WDBJ7 tells CNN that Flanagan stayed in city after firing and sometimes met former employees but that Flanagan never turned up at the TV station after being let go.
As of right now it is being reported that Flanagan is in custody and receiving treatment for self-inflicted gun shots.
ABC News reports, that it received a 23-page manifesto by fax from Flanagan sometime between midnight and five o’clock this morning. No word yet of contents. The manifesto has been turned over to authorities.

The killer is STILL ALIVE
Morten Vassing | 16:04 LIVE BLOGGING: Bryce Williams Killed After Shooting Two Journalists
Vester L. Flanagan, real name, has killed himself on I66 after posting chilling photos and videos.
Okay, here we go: Vester L. Flanagan is sought after by local law enforcement in Roanoke, VA.
I am currently keeping track on this crime story unfolding in the U.S.
Okay, CNN is still on top. The sick fucker aka Bryce Williams filmed the double murder with a GoPro camera and posted the video of the killings on Twitter (his Twitter account is now suspended).
I am on my MacBook Pro working on this site when I have my own News Central going on in Firefox in the Space next door as the story of two WDBJ7 reporters are shot and killed live on TVÂ breaks on the news.
Crazy world. RIP Alison Parker and Adam Ward.
I always have FOX News, CNN U.S., MSNBC and SKY News running on my Mac.
This is the shooter who is believed to be a disgruntled WDBJ employee who has killed his two former colleagues. Local law enforcement is closing in on the suspect as they have his identity, his car and license plate.
Quicksilver for Mac is the very first thing I install on a new Mac or after a clean install. Period.
It’s fucking fabulous and I can’t believe it’s free. But it is and you can get it too for you Mac.
First off the app Quicksilver is more an extension of your powerful Mac’s features than an app as such. Quicksilver saves your time and getting a tennis elbow from extended use of your mouse or Trackpad on the Mac.
What Quicksilver does â€“ and does really, really well and fast â€“ is open your apps and almost anything on your Mac. I have it setup to kick in when I hit [CMD]+[.] (thats it!) I hit the [CMD] key to the right of the Spacebar with my index finger followed immediately with my middle finger (don’t even go there!) hitting the [.] PERIOD key. Then you just have to hit one other alpha key and [ENTER] â€“ and behold the magic.
And as you get to use Quicksilver more and more Quicksilver will learn your preferences for easy access to every single one of your apps installedÂ Â on your Mac as well as Preferences and so much more.
On my MacBook Pro Retina running Yosemite 10.10.5 Quicksilver loads fast after booting and I am just three keystrokes away from being productive on the Mac:
[CMD]+[.]+[S]+[ENTER] opens Safari
[CMD]+[.]+[A]+[ENTER] opensÂ Applications folder but [CMD]+[.]+[AM]+[ENTER] opensÂ AirMail 2
[CMD]+[.]+[P]+[ENTER] opensÂ Preferences but [CMD]+[.]+[PA]+[ENTER]Â opensÂ Pages (you get the idea).
And so on and so on. Quicksilver picks ups your personal flavor as use it, and even when it is not up to perfection in your personal choices you can simply force the damn thing into submission: I had [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER] opening Logic Pro X but it wanted Quicksilver to open Logoist 2 when hitting [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER], so I went ahead repeatedly hitting [CMD]+[.]+[L]+[ENTER]Â andÂ repeatedly picking Logist 2 from the dropdown menu (see images below). After doing this perhaps five or six times Quicksilver complied.
When I first made the big jump from M$ to Mac in May, 2007, I stocked up on loads of glossy magazines like MacWorld, MacFormat and MacUser and kept reading positive things about Quicksilver (which was also a big thing for Mac users eight years) but I didn’t get it back then.
Then when I read about it about Quicksilver very positively a few years into my Mac career I gave it a second go and this time doing it properly and researching a bit about Quicksilver’s usefulness and some trial and error effort on my part. And since then I have been very satisfied with Quicksilver â€“ and I am certain you will be too.
(Some Mac users use the onboard Spotlight [CMD]+[Spacebar]+SA for Safari and so forth while others utilize Albert, I stick with Quicksilver which I rate at five out of five stars).
Quicksilver is a fast and free Mac OS X productivity application that gives you the power to control your Mac quickly and elegantly. Quicksilver learns your habits, making your everyday chores simple and efficient.
Granted, I was never aware of a tech guru named Steve Jobs at the time of Apple’s unveiling of the infamous Apple II computer. Hell, I didn’t even own a computer at that time.
I had for a brief moment a Commodore 64 at the tender young age of 16 years during the hot summer of 1984 growing up in a small suburb of Copenhagen.
Fast forward 31 years and I am an Apple Fanboy. Go figure.
San Franciscoâ€™s 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
Apple still hasnâ€™t made an announcement as to where next monthâ€™s iPhone 6s event will take place. However,Â according to a new report it may be set to rock San Franciscoâ€™s 7,000-seat Bill Graham Civic Auditorium â€” the same venue where Steve Jobs and Wozniak first unveiled the Apple II.
The building has been hired for a week-long â€œprivate eventâ€ lasting from September 4 until September 13, which would be more than enough time for Apple to make the necessary preparations, such as installing product banners, setting up demos, and the like.
My go-to camera for the past five years or so has been the iPhone in my front right jeans pocket. It has seen is fair share of upgrades and at present does not match some of the really higher resolution smartphones out there.
All that is about to change next month as Apple unveils the iPhone 6S with a new and improved 12MB back camera. My only problem is if it’ll leave my Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adapter for iPhone 6 (which I haven’t even received for the FedEx yet).
Well, I guess theÂ Moondog Labs Anamorphic Lens Adapter will come in an upgrades iPhone 6S version (as I rejected getting the iPro Lens Kit from Schneider Optics as the case is wound so tightly around the iPhone 6 that it’s a pain in the ass to get on and especially off the damn iPhone. Also, I don’t think the case by Element CaseÂ will work with my Lanparte 3 Axis gimbal).
A person â€œwithin Appleâ€™s supply chainâ€ toldÂ Business Insider MalaysiaÂ that a new five-element lens is being produced, designed to work with a 12 megapixel sensor upgraded from the 8 megapixel sensor found in current iPhone 6 handsets. The unnamed person went on to reveal that a more complex six-element lens has also been ordered for a future undisclosed iPhone.
Why add a lens element?
Each element in a lens enables further refinement of the image, including the correction of unwanted distortions which can result in the bending of straight lines, as well as the removal of any coloured fringes which can often appear at the edges of an uncorrected photo.
Hey, it’s timeÂ to spring into action.
Here’s the first shot of the day
