All along we knew the Boston Marathon bombings would unleash the crazy machine of radio station morning zoos, (here, one that starts with a K and ends with an O), that have broadcast a bevy of conspiracy "theories", (psst, the perps have 'dark-skin'!);
in addition to the fact, they know nothing, they love incidents like this to showcase their forte, never mind, why let facts get in the way of a good story.
While CNN stepped in a lot of it, the NY Post really stepped in a lot of it and they're wrong, (like above, the two guys lynched in the press and convicted already are actual runners and had nothing to do with the bombings).
What made the CNN booboo so unintentionally funny was the fact that just as soon as they'd realized they reported a complete inaccuracy, (like, a "suspect" has been "arrested" and is "in custody--NOT), they immediately went into CYA-mode and denial central. Their so-called "National Security Expert" was so off the chart and goofy, she looked as if she was playing Tina Fey in an old "Saturday Night Live" comedy skit. I'm not sure what here name is and I'm not going to look it up but she sort of resembles a younger-looking Gloria Borger. She was all over the map on Wednesday.
*I'm working on a tip that a local station's GM threatened his News Director's job over "too much coverage" on the Boston bombings. We're checking.
*April is, indeed, the cruelest month.
