Do you think the folks at CNN ever have an "after action" meeting to go over these things, and just sit there with their heads in their hands?

So, things we did well:

Well, we were there.

Not so well:

Guys, we gotta stop talking shit on the air!

blood is never that bright red. (I'm a lv 2 first aid attendent)
Which blood is that? You mean the momentarily-infamous "disappearing gore" photo where the supposed blood was actually a flag laying on the ground?

Quote:
supposed backpacks that contained the bomb not obliterated.
Supposed by whom? The media latched onto a single photo of a mangled backpack and everyone started talking about that being the one containing a bomb, but I don't recall there ever being any official statement to that effect.

Quote:
shattered windows in the shops all blown outwards.
Happens if someone drops a backpack with a bomb INSIDE a store.

Quote:
smoke from bomb is white?
Mostly dust, not smoke. Dust blown and billowing upward from the blast. Concrete dust, drywall dust... everyday dust that piles up on things...

And yes, some accelerants do produce white smoke as well. I believe it's been reported that the bombs used "reloading powder", such as that used to reload ammunition... that type of powder does produce white or light-grey smoke.

Do yourself a favor, stay away from CiC's PressTV links - it's been clinically proven that people actually lose IQ points from watching PressTV.

Sad news...

Sunil Tripathi, the person who was falsely accused of being the Boston bomber in a 4chan/Reddit witchhunt, has committed suicide.

http://www.thestar.com/news/world/20..._bombings.html

The reputability of sources and double checking facts are the cornerstones of journalism. They are also what separate traditional news organizations from social media such as Reddit, 4chan and Facebook. On the latter sites, you can stay anonymous and shout whatever you want to the heavens, and people will listen to you.

There was a female Redditor from Toronto who got assaulted. However, someone saw her post pictures of herself with zombie makeup on, and her posts on Gonewild-it was unilaterally decided that she was faking it. She got death threats and had to post a video proving the wounds were real. Witchhunts and jumping to conclusions only ruin lives, as so tragically demonstrated.

RIP

I hope he eventually gets the death penalty. Or gang raped in jail.

Is that the Brown student who went missing a week or a month before the bombings?

I think there may be a chance that the accusations on 4chanedditbook had no affect since if he was missing for that long he may have already committed suicide/etc and clearly has separate issues

Let's not jump to conclusions yet. The cause of his death wasn't determined yet - no one knows if he committed suicide or if there was foul play.

The article said that he was already missing since last month - it could be completely unrelated to the bombing.

Yes, but his name popped up in the subreddit /r/findbostonbombers and Redditors harassed his family.

I agree that the internet didn't directly kill him, but they made his family's life a living hell. And that's just as bad.
