    correction: I saw plenty of coverage of the blast on FOX News.

    I saw plenty of coverage of coverage of the blast on FOX News.

    I turned Fox off because that is all they had.

  • Sam

    Congratulations to NBC Network including MSNBC for their responsible reporting. CNN and Fox News should be ashamed of themselves for false reporting.

  • Sicilian Papa

    These guys might be out of the country by now. The media is saying they are Caucasians. They don’t look like white guys to me. I could be wrong just ask my ex-wife!

  • Cheryl Lynn

    I tried muddling through some Erin Burnette. It is like I am watching a broadcast from the Highschool Cable Network that is aired in my hometown in Illinois 4 hours a week, gving local news and students a place to get some experience. So amateurish. Erin is just not at all prime time material. I see she did pretty well numbers wise at 11:00 PM. Probably a lot of people tuning in about the West, Texas blast. Imagine a lot of non regular viewers think she was a fill in. She is even light weight for a fill in. Just a silly little girl with liberal views and no idea why she has them.

  • Jim

    So, when will Jeffy and the other Left-wing agitators show up to tell us MSNBC is gospel truth and everyone else, especially FOX is Satan incarnate?

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Cheryl Lynn

    Erin is one good looking dame but yeah not much talent.

  • Doug Z

    There you go again , no facts.

    Fox gave full credit to AP when reporting this. they helped make the AP look bad without knowing what they were doing

    Why do these libs, Demos not look up a source and make things up?

  • Matthew

    Maybe my eyesight is starting to go bad, but I can barely discern any facial features (including ethnicity) from that FBI video of the suspects; I have a sinking feeling this is gonna quickly turn into a Rorschach test, with everyone jumping the gun once again and seeing what they want to see in the video.

  • Doug Z

    They look like the God Father movie to me ,

    Doug Z,

    “Fox gave full credit to AP when reporting this. they helped make the AP look bad without knowing what they were doing

    Why do these libs, Demos not look up a source and make things up?”

    That doesn’t release them from responsibility, they want to get whatever information out first so they’ll get more ratings. In other words, they’re
    w h o r e s for ratings and give no regards whatsoever to responsible reporting.

  • Doug Z

    Sam

    If I say that Sam is now reporting xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, then Sam gets all the credit. Where do you come from.I had past on bad information for sure, Sam was the source.Sam looks bad, or the AP.

    AP is Liberal by the way, supports Dems all the way.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Matthew

    on my buzz feed its saying a international alert was released with the photos, could mean they have international ties. But your right, hard to tell what decent they are

  • Sam

    @ Doug Z,

    “If I say that Sam is now reporting xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, then Sam gets all the credit. Where do you come from.I had past on bad information for sure, Sam was the source.Sam looks bad, or the AP.

    AP is Liberal by the way, supports Dems all the way.”

    Again this is a major news network not my buddy Joe. News networks have the responsibility not to report anything like that after a major attack unless they have independently verified it. NBC could have just said “according to CNN….” but they didn’t, that’s responsibility in reporting that we all should respect.

  • Doug Z

    Sam
    Fox was just trying to show the world how bad AP is. CNN did that themselves on this.

    “Fox gave full credit to AP when reporting this. they helped make the AP look bad without knowing what they were doing

  • Sicilian Papa

    I could be wrong and yes try not read too much into the photos. But it does appear to be an organized attack by a terrorist cell, maybe domestic, maybe foreign.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Cheryl Lynn: In my time, I’ve seen many high school TV stations and you would be impressed with 90% of them. (90% is the usual number here if you want to describe a majority. lol.) I once had a high school senior covering the trial of five police officers on trial for shoplifting and I would put his work against anyone else in the news media in the area. The station couldn’t spare a full-timer to sit in the courtroom all week. I’ve been behind the scenes while some of the local high schools used their students and TV facilities for a state legislative debate and I was very impressed. The only way it works is if the teacher supervising the TV student operation keeps partisanship out.

  • Mike W

    Sam

    As I posted yesterday. CNBC also reported the AP story that a suspect was under arrest for the Boston Marathon bombing. About 5 minutes later they said that the story was not true.

  • Doug Z

    Go Mike

    Sam will not fact check, that one.

  • betty

    Obama is Ugly-Angry over the failure of his Guncontrol Fiasco……….
    Obama was NOT Ugly-Angry over the Boston Bombings (cool as a cucumber).
    Obama was NOT Ugly-Angry over Benghazi (said he’d punish them “soon” ?)
    Obama is NOT Ugly-Angry over the everyday Shootings in Chicago.
    Obama is selectively Ugly-Angry, a.k.a. a Hypocrite.
