Oh, Wolf! Bless your precious heart.
As Twitchy reported, protests in Turkey are ramping up in Istanbul’s Taksim Square. Riot police are reportedly using water cannons and tear gas. Earlier this month, CNN-Turk chose to run a show about penguins rather than the protests. And now? Wolf Blitzer’s gas mask obsession. While the situation on the ground is dangerous, viewers couldn’t help but notice the incessant chatter about gas masks.
Oh boy, now Wolf Blitzer is giving gas mask operating instructions! What a genius: 'You have to make sure the straps are tight'

Insightful analysis? Well, if you mean obsession.
