Then there is this reprehensible piece of news.

Quote

The anti-LGBT Westboro Baptist Church has blamed Monday’s bombing of the Boston Marathon on same sex marriage and has promised to protest at the funerals of the victims.

In a press release posted to Twitter, Westboro thanked God for the attack and announced its plan to “picket the funeral of those killed.”

“The federal government is classifying the bombs as a terrorist attack, but say it’s unclear if it’s of a domestic or foreign nature,” the release said. “Here’s a hint — GOD SENT THE BOMBS! How many more terrifying ways will you have the LORD injure and kill your fellow countrymen because you insist on nation-dooming filthy fag marriage?!”

By Tuesday morning, a “We the People” petition on the White House website had over 4,000 signatures from people asking that the church be banned from demonstrating at victims’ funerals

Every time we report about this so called Church group they get free PR? Lets keep them off MetroJacksonville and let them spin on this ... (upturned finger)!

Sometimes words calling out this type of monstrous behavior in a public format is giving them the finger in a more lasting manner.  They hurt people when they are most vulnerable and those of us who get the degree of harm they inflict need to speak up against this type of abuse when we see it.

CNN is reporting that Boston Law Enforcement has a substantial breakthrough in the Boston bombings.  Video from Lord and Taylor Department store closed circuit cameras and a Boston T.V. station has revealed important evidence.  Rumor is they have identified a suspect.  No one will confirm if they have that person in custody or not.  Unconfirmed is that the suspect is a dark skinned male.

Honestly following mainstream media is a mess.  Now CNN has a reporter saying that no one has been arrested and they don't have an identity for the person that was seen on video leaving a bag by the finish line.  It is hard to believe what is being said on these outlets and it certainly is looking like mainstream media and those reporting sure as heck don't seem to be following the old rules of check your sources and information and make sure what you are telling the public is truthful.

Now CNN claims some folks high up in a Justice of the Peace office says no one is in custody.  What a mess of misinformation and another reminder of the decline of major media reporting.  Simply pathetic coming across on the Associated Press.  Makes my head hurt.  The following from News4Jax who also reported an arrest made.   :-\

BREAKING BOSTON UPDATE: CNN is now RECANTING it's report of an arrest being made. Fran Townsend on CNN says "There was a misunderstanding and lots of cross communication."

Conflicting reports are now surfacing. Both CNN and AP were reporting an arrest, they are now recanting

FBI officials are chiding mainstream media and warning them to be careful what they report!  I certainly agree with that sentiment.

Pathetic, even after admitting they were wrong about the arrest, CNN is now reporting more rumor's about a hospital evacuation in Brookline Boston.  Proof of this?  NO.  They are relaying the words of two police officers as heard by a reporter.  CNN, digging a bigger hole for themselves.

Consume the following with a "grain of salt".  It comes from Associated Press who also reported an arrest had been made.  Wonder if they got this info correct?

Feds deny reports of Boston suspect in custody
Posted: April 17, 2013 - 1:55pm  |  Updated: April 17, 2013 - 3:02pm

BOSTON (AP) — Federal officials are denying that a suspect is in custody in the Boston Marathon bombings.

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Wednesday a suspect was in custody.

But the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office in Boston dispute that.

The official who spoke to The Associated Press did so on condition of anonymity and stood by the information even after it was disputed.

Two law enforcement sources told USA TODAY no arrest had been made. The Associated Press, CNN and Fox Boston said that a suspect had been taken into custody in early afternoon.

The official that spoke to the Associated Press shortly after several media outlets reported that a suspect had been identified from surveillance video taken at a Lord & Taylor store between the sites of the two bomb blasts, which killed three people and wounded more than 170.

The official was not authorized to divulge details of the investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The AP reported the suspect was expected at a Boston courthouse under heavy security, the official said
