Default Is the media making a circus out of the Boston bomber story?

You think the cable news networks are making too big a deal out of this? Do we need 24 hours of this? Are the networks just playing this hand for all it's worth for ratings?

Well the last we know is true but seriously do you think this is being overplayed just a bit?

I found the CNN coverage in the morning to be ridiculous. These news reporters seem to think THEY are the story and were acting excited to be there. Have a little respect it's not about you it's about the police and the citizens. A lot of sensationalism, a lot of incorrect reporting and misinformation thrown out these last few days. The media is a total mess these days, social media has them rushing to break stories and get info out first. CNN has got several things wrong lately and have lost a lot of trust.

And i'm sure the other stations are the same but CNN is always number 1 for big events like this/natural disasters, they have to get their stuff right and get some better reporters.

They all got it wrong. So did the people on this site trying to be first. A few of us said to wait and see and I am proud of them.

Comparing a news network to someone repeating what the news network said isn't close. Nothing wrong with telling people what the news is reporting and letting them figure it out on their own and make up their own mind. That's a good thing. Also exposes and creates a chance for the cable news morons to change their ignorant ways for the better and waiting for facts before reporting them as "confirmed."

msnbc gave accurate reporting as far as I could see but pee their pants every time they get to mention Obama who they laud as if he was on the BPD
Fox is inaccurate in that they jump to conclusions (hey I can do that by myself with Twitter) and they act like Obama is in a terrorists cell himself
CNN just flooked up altogether

I found a live news feed of CBS and they were doing ok cause they were at the scene.
radio (stations I listen to )didn't report enough but when they did it was pretty accurate

Some threads where we were all concerned about the bombing and the people of Boston got turned into partisan crap by the same few posters. It's some sick shlt that we can't all share our concerns for these people as Americans without these same people trying to rip us apart. Go read the "Two explosions at Boston marathon finish line" and you will see how it happens. Do yourself a favor and read it and see where our community of fellow Americans fell apart.

Ah don't take it so personal or get mad over it. Ignore sucky people. I never get offended. If someones that much of an a-hole I'll just skip past their posts. Easy peasy.
