I saw 1 minute and Mitt Romney said, with a smirk on his face, something about the senators grilling the Starbucks CEO have never created a job. That smug uni9n-hating jerk has been busy dismantling jobs over the years. He’s filthy rich and should go watch his car elevator go up and down all day.

unless and until there is a conviction you have to say alleged.
Doing otherwise can make you vulnerable to defamation.

it prevents newspapers/stations from being sued, and is a rule taught in every Journalism school in the country. For example, the suspect in custody for the death of the Idaho college students would be referred to as the 'alleged killer'. If he's convicted, then he can safely be labelled a killer or murderer.
