    It was pretty hideous. The poor doctor at the first press conference needed hospital care after the press water-boarded him for information about the initial bombing victims.

    Excellent ’toon.

    It’s not just Boston. The craving for instant media is toxic for quality journalism and facts are pushed aside to make room for opinion and beliefs.

    A great cartoon!
    OK, Journalism, it is safe to come out.

    NPR provided excellent coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings all week long, right through live transmissions of the final capture of the younger bombing suspect. THAT was broadcast journalism, not the self-important and jumping-to-conclusions gibberish of CNN and other news outlets.

    It was good coverage. Sadly, that’s an example
    of why the Right wants to see NPR disappear.

    CNN blew it multiple times. FoxNews blew it. I won’t even discuss the unspeakable New York Post. Some of the local broadcasters were admittedly overexcited, but did a better job than I would have expected.
    Once it became “we’re looking, we have nothing to report,” you could have just put a scroll to that effect and gone back to other news.

    At one point the media got to the uncle of one of the bombers, who gave the full address of his brother (the bombers father) live on the air. Good grief! Only through the restraint of the American public wasn’t his house burned down to the ground. And even before that they showed – live – how about 30 SWAT-guys searched a house. I have never imagined that a TV-station could be this irresponsible! In Germany they would lose their license, I can promise you that!

    I don’t watch Fox, so I can’t comment. I do watch CNN sometimes, and by and large they are pretty low level. Mostly I watch CBC — they have some very good reporters.

    You don’t like Jake Tapper? (figures, he’s pretty fair…)
