CNN Is Tripping Over Itself Racing to Cover the Boston Non-Arrest

CNN Is Tripping Over Itself Racing to Cover the Boston Non-Arrest

In their rush to report first, CNN is having a little trouble with their coverage of the Boston Marathon tragedy - namely, conflicting articles, right on top of each other, on their front page. You can check out the screengrab above. That'll do, CNN, that'll do.

In other related news, the FBI has just released a statement asking the media to calm it with their reporting, because nothing has been confirmed yet:

Contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack. Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.
