Novelist and Boston native Dennis Lehane reflects on the marathon bombing and aftermath. In a New York Times op-ed he wrote: “Two different friends texted me the identical message yesterday: They messed with the wrong city.”
CNN and all NEWS MEDIA: PLEASE – stop referring to [these] terrorist as "MEN!" Instead, refer to them as whom they really are...MURDEROUS COWARDS. They certainly DO NOT deserve to be called men. Pass it on. Thank you.
Drop the ball?? WOW!! That's puting "MILDLY" Send this young man to Quantnomay and go from there? Just a thought?
3 killed in boston by bombs 170k murdered in u.s. since 9/11, 26 killed in newtown, 12 killed in aurora, 5 shot dead in seattle last night, do the math. Why is the news media obsessed with foreign terrorists or enemy combatants.
Yes, why is the media obsessed with foreign terrorists or enemy combatants? Tired of seeing the same stories on Boston over and over again. When you have new breaking news then report it. Yes, I do feel for the people of Boston but what makes them different than anyone else? Why are we giving the terrorists or combatants so much attention?
The media should use better judgment in what they report. When you tell the public that the FBI examines the pictures after bombing incidents to see who looks calm when everyone else is panicked, and uses that to focus on potential suspects, that info can be used by potential terrorists. So after the next bombing, the bombers will be sure to look panicked also. It's similar to several years ago when the media reported that the gov't. listened in on terrorists' cell phone calls – they stopped using cell phones. It puts us all at greater risk.
