Golly, how could they have become bombers? Just cant put my finger on it. WTF is wrong w/ CNN? "Awww she's grieving, she can't be held responsible for what she's saying, poor woman...." Whaaaat????
Watertown resident took pictures of firefight in Watertown. Has a shot of the two brothers taking cover behind the car, one shooting, bomb at their feet. When he saw them light it, he took cover. Bullet hole through chair in an office in his apartment, right at chest level, and dead center.
I didn't watch much of the coverage while it was happening. Three kids, couldn't do it. Beyond what my wife was telling me when she could, and what I hear through my job, I saw almost none of the national coverage, until the pics were released. Once the pics were released, I was glued here w/ others, listening to a police radio once the MIT incident occurred, typing what I heard, along w/ some others.
The coverage, I'm finding out, was just awful. NBC reported suspect was a dark skinned male? NY post put that poor Arab kid's picture on the front of the paper? Yeah, uh, they're ****ed. MSNBC had talking heads implying it was right wing extremists? Celebrating it was "caucasian males"? What the hell happened to journalism?
Reidy, good call on that murder in Waltham, looks like they're re-opening the case, or at least taking another look at it. No longer a cold case.
The best coverage I encountered was here. I don't know what it was like on Reddit. I had MSNBC on in the background, and it was really amusing to see them cover something an hour or so after it happened, or better yet, after it was known to be incorrect. It sounds like several news agencies opened themselves up to the possibility of lawsuits.
Pretty sad a group of people on a hockey board with online scanner feeds demolished the pro news.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
