Everyone is blasting CNN for bogus report of Boston arrest, but Fox News and others did the same thing
Over the past 24 hours, countless pundits have been chortling like mad at CNN’s mistaken report yesterday that an arrest had been made in the Boston bombings.
Political satirist Jon Stewart devoted a WHOLE SEGMENT last night to chiding CNN for its error.
But let’s be fair about this. Fox News made the same mistake (see photo above). Nor was CNN the first news outfit to declare that an arrest had been made. The Associated Press was.
Check THIS TICK-TOCK on who reported what and when.
I’m happy to say that here at Applesauce we HEDGED OUR BETS on the matter of an arrest.
