    I love the 'media'.

    The media coverage of the incident in Boston has been not-so-informative, scary and I am sorry for saying this....funny.

    In their haste to put out an 'informational newscast', they are stepping on their own tails and stumbling about the 'dial'.

    I was watching the news last night (0200 EST) and was laughing at inability of one channel to get a cohesive story out. I was flipping between two stations/broadcasts and of the two, only one was waiting to report facts.

    The other? Mindless babbling without any fact checking.

    -------------

    The other thing that entertained me was the wordage used.

    One female reporter reported that the suspects in the police shootout had detonated IUDs. Another reported said that they might be using a 'cooker pressure' bomb.

    I know that it's a serious situation, but I cannot handle the stupidity behind the idea of getting a scoop, at the expense of the getting the truth out to the public.

    Here's another one from Brian Williams and his reporting.....

    When the second (boat) shootout happened and the tape was being played his show, BW says something like, "It sounds like the same caliber of guns being used during the first shootout."

    Pom,
    Glad to know I am not the only one paying attention.

    In the week after 9/11, I went to sleep with the TV on.....now, I know better.

    What drives me NVTS nuts

    WHen the screw up and release information from "unofficial" sources is that it can compromise operations, particularly like what was happening in Bahstin.

    The perps are paying attention to the media as well.

    The leakers need to be dealt with, but the media needs to go back to journalism school. Thankfully their "leaks" probably didn't cause any additional casualties this time, but the saying "loose lips sink ships" applies to law enforcement operations as well as military.

    The media's profits shouldn't override security. They need to go look at what Ernie Pyle and others who covered WW2 did.
